In my weizen glass, this beer was a hazy gold color with a small white head.
Banana and spice aroma. A fresh, outdoorsy aroma. Grainy.
A lot of banana in the taste. Clove, which lingered and tickled my nose. Wheat.
A nice, refreshing beer. Nice to drink on a ho summer day after work.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a large, two finger foamy head. Not much retention, quickly reducing to a thin cap of white on top. Very little bits of lacing.
S: Yeasty with a bunch of wheat. Some light spices, mostly coriander, and some citrus, banana, and apple.
T: A bit of orange and banana upfront, the banana intensifies as the beer warms a bit. There is some yeast, wheat, and spice on the midpalate that lingers on the tongue.
M: Light to medium bodied, nice level of carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.
O: The more I drink it, the more I like it. An easy drinking, low abv hefe? Sign me up. Not the best hefe I have ever had, but very serviceable.

Sampled on January 14, 2012. It pours from the 22 ounce bottle a golden yellow, cloudy, highly carbonated, and very heady. There are lots of aromas tickling my nose with an upfront wheat character and yeast, banana, and clove playing up the rear. The body is light to medium. The taste is subtle with wheat and yeast to start and a clean, crisp finish. The beer is very drinkable.

Pours a large fizzy head of 2+ fingers that fades fairly quickly with touches of lacing, over semi hazy orange nectar colored beer, tons of bubbles floating up.
Nose is a little yeasty, plenty of earthy wheat malt aromas, nice German like hefe yeast, light spices and some citrus, a little bit of sweet malts, a citrus candy like aroma as well, hints of banana and apple.
taste starts with a tart fruit flavor, almost soured but not quite, a bit acidic as well. The yeast kicks in with a light yeasty flavor but more fruits, light banana and apple, clove and light spices, a bit of citrus and sweet malty candy almost, lots of carbonation helps it dance on the tongue, little juicy. Nice wheat flavors and light toasty malts. Finishes a little sweet not quite as dry as I hoped, a weird almost lilac like floral flavor really late with more clove and spices, light wheat and some citrus.
Mouth is lighter bodied, tons of carbonation.
Overall not bad, typical hefe, nothing really wrong, although some weird and interesting flavors with the tartness and acidity as well as apple, and the weird floral flavor on the finish. A bit drier would have been nice.

Thanks to VanillaMike for sending this my way. Shared with a few Rejects at our UFC 135 viewing.
A - Golden colored beer with a nice head and some nice spots on the side.
S - Nice wheat, a bit bready, slight bit of clove. This one has an interesting tartness to it which is not unpleasant.
T - Pretty nice, a bit of belgian yeast, touch of banana and a hint of clove. The tartness provides a little bit of bite and interesting character to this.
M - Active carbonation, lighter bodied.
O - This is a really great beer. I could have killed multiple 22 oz. of this by myself. Tasty, east to drink, a good hefe and nice session beer.

Pours a two-finger white head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Citric and yeast nose and flavor is tart lemon and yeast. $5.50 for a 22oz bottle from Throwback Brewery North Hampton, NH.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a golden-orange coloring with yellow highlights and a filmy ring around the surface. Aromas of biscuits and toast, with some light spicing and buttery highlights. Flavors are light and crisp, with roasted grains in the background giving rise to a buttery and citrus blending. Extremely smooth, with a slightly slick lacing along the glass. Aftertaste is quick and subtle, with a tangy citrus and cinnamon blend. Smooth, clean finish. Tasty!

Pours a lightly hazy medium golden straw color with a huge fluffy bone white head that persists forever. Smells of clove and other assorted yeasty esters along with a sweet honey like malt and a mild wheat spice aroma. The flavor is sharp with a hit of fruity tart with a solid dose of clove. Light apple and cherry fruits with a light sweet light sugary malt flavor. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sharp sweet tart mouthfeel. Decent brew, I could certainly entertain the thought of drinking this on a warm day.

Presentation: 22 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass. No freshness date on the bottle. Served and enjoyed chilled.
Appearance: Golden yellow to light orange in color with a slight cloudiness throughout. Pours a light two finger and cloudy white head that recedes slowly into a nice lacing all around.
Aroma: Some spicy hop notes mix with the clove and bubblegum notes. Some graham cracker notes in there as well. Very light and refreshing.
Taste: The hops are a bit subdued here and the bubblegum sweetness and clove really take over. Not overly sweet but definitely on the sweeter side. Light refreshing and drinkable.
Mouthfeel: Definitely a lighter body. A bit creamy in texture as well.
Overall, a really nice light and refreshing hefeweizen. Nothing too profound or unexpected but this works well for a warm day.
