The best part about this beer, it's the cheapest Hefeweizen I can find.
I wouldn't put it up there with the best of the bunch, but it isn't a bad beer at all. Good, for the price.
The pour is a crystal yellow color, almost like a pilsner. Not cloudy at all. There is a small head, that wanders off quickly. Lots of bubbles make their way up the glass like champagne.
The taste is light, but still have a little bit to it. There's the wheat, and a little banana in there. There's a little bit of skunkiness, though. Not too much to make it taste bad. I actually don't mind it and kind of like it.
The banana smell comes through, also.
Overall, not bad for a cheap weissen.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a hazy dark straw color with a wispy bubbly white head that quickly dissipate to a light foam on the top and leaves marginal lace on the way down. Aromas of pepper and clove with hints of bubble gum and a light honey like and spicy maltiness. Bready yeasty aromas and a hint of lemon round out the nose on this one. The flavor is lightly sweet honey, and bready, and spicy malt up front. clove and pepper and bready yeasty flavors counter the malty sweetness well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet spicy bubbly mouthfeel. I'm missing the banana, but everything else seems to be there. This would make a nice warm weather brew, light and easy to drink.
