A: poured into a weizen glass to a cloudy golden orange with a small white head that fades quickly

M: light in the mouth with soft and slightly prickly carbonation, somewhat refreshing finish
O: pretty good, nice flavors and a decent complexity without any serious faults. easy drinking and won't wreck the palate.

12oz can into a pint glass

A: Pours hazy yellow with a white head that fades to a ring and leaves lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is really something on this one. Big aromas of banana, wheat, bubblegum, and belgian esters. I could smell this all night.

T: The taste doesn't exactly live up to the promises the nose made but it's still pretty good. Nice flavors of banana, wheat, malt, and belgian yeast.

M: The feel is crisp but the bigger bubbles make it feel a bit odd. I'd like to see smaller bubbles and creamier.

O: Not a bad example of the style and something I could drink in quantity at a BBQ or something like that.

Poured from can to Weizen glass.

Hazy amber gold body with a quickly diminishing white head.

An expected bouquet: there is banana, lemon, vanilla, maybe a little spice. This beer is mostly sweet however.

The sweetness of the nose is much subdued on the palate. The beer starts with lemon and slowly adds some clove and a general earthiness. As the drink is swallowed, the banana cream pie sweetness is reintroduced and makes for a very satisfying finish.

More bubbly than creamy, this Hefe still manages a solid medium body. I prefer a little less crispness with this style.

The aromas of this beer are excellent, almost like sticking your nose in a banana cream pie! I wish the palate did the same, but it spends more time with herbal and earthy tones. Only getting to what the nose flirted at in the finish. Still, this was quite the easy drink.
