look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Arrives a straw-grapefruit blend in color. Completely cloudy yet translucent, it almost looks lit from behind. Good lace for a hefeweizen.
Smell is somewhat restrained but notes of malt, cloves, bananas, and yeast. Well balanced.
Taste is more forward than the nose with the same malty backbone carrying bananas, clove, nutmeg, yeast and vanilla notes. Very good balance. Good complexity.
Medium bodied with a pronounced and tangy effervescence. Drying from the middle on. A mere whiff of warming late. Well done.

A: Cloudy orange yellow, white head.

S: Wheaty, grainy, slightly bananery.

T: Not a lot going on at all. None of that Hefe banana-like goodness even though it's in the nose. It's not watery but it's very insipid.

O: A very boring beer. Never again. The cheery orange label promised a mouthfull of citrusy refreshment so what a disappointment.

11.2oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A: Cloudy golden color with a towering rocky white head that retains very well. Lacing is foamy and clumpy.

S: Bready wheat, hints of banana. Yeasty. clove and white pepper.

T: Clove and medicinal tastes right up front. Very yeasty. White pepper and spices. Bready wheat. Subtle tart snap. Wheaty and yeasty finish.

M: Light bodied. Somewhat creamy, but not as full and frothy as it should be. Somewhat thin and watery. Blast of scrubbing carbonation.

O: A rather bland, commercialized hefeweizen. Lacking in body. Really nothing special.
