3.51/5 rDev -3.3%
Not a bad hefe. Has all of the right touches, just not that pronounced or memorable. Pours the right hazy straw gold color with a delicately bubbly white head. More lacing than many of the hefes I have had. Aroma has some cloves, bananas and other spices, just not as robust as I would have liked.
Flavor is pretty godd, but once again, pretty subdued. I like a more astringent, spicy hefe flavor.
Mouthfeel is just right, a little bite in an overall crisp and smooth beer.
A good, well priced averagy hefeweizen. Just right for a warm day. There are better, just as easily available ones out there. Having it in a can is a bonus.

2.81/5 rDev -22.6%
A: Nice hazy color with the right amount of lacing. Unfortunately, the appearance is the best part of this beer.
S: Slightly fruity smell, nothing too prominent.
T: A little bit of spice followed by some lager-y sulfur taste.
M: Very smooth and clean, well carbonated.

3.79/5 rDev +4.4%
Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy honey amber sheen; the creamy head leaves a nice webbing of lace behind
Smell: Vague elements of banana and wheat with a twist of spicy rye
Taste: Banana and wheat, up front, with a spicy rye twist in the middle; the flavors flatten out in the finish, which is a bit of a demerit
Mouthfeel: Rather thin and watery, lacking the creamy body I like in the style; moderate carbonation
Overall: A bit of a half a hefe; starts out interesting but the finish and mouthfeel are lacking
