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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

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

Appearance- Cloudy amber with one finger frothy head that sits on top all the way down. Well carbonated with lots of bubbles. Leaves good lacing.

Smell- Banana bread, yeasty smell, touch of lemon.

Taste- Quite dry. Nice contrast of bitter flavours, wheat and yeast, touch of toffee. The flavours stay on the palate for a while. Easy to drink, refreshing, smooth wheat beer.

Mouthfeel- Starts off creamy but thins out a bit half way down the glass , however, a refreshing beer.

Overall- A tasty well made wheat beer that is very refreshing, would definitely buy again, this beer would go down well chilled on a hot summers day.

Bottle shared by a friend. From notes.

A - Poured with a one finger creamy white head. Really cloudy, dark orange. No visible carbonation. No lacing and only a cap of retention.

S - Orange, lemon, sweet spice, and yeast.

T - Orange dominates with some spice and yeast.

M - Good carbonation and a light body with a sweet orange crush finish.

O/D - A pretty typical, quality wheat. Standard and un-revolutionary, but well crafted.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a straw/ light gold colour, with a variable massive dense head... needs a careful pour to fill glass to brim, not over brim. Vigorous pour will take three to four goes, even in a named and over-sized SchofferHoffer glass.

Aromas of bananas, cloves - a little bubblegum

Taste is yeast driven, refreshing.

Mouthfeel is crisp, light.

Overall good beer, not best in class, but very drinkable.
