Sampling right now after league bowling on 12/9/14. Comes in a single 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle for $3.99 with a ceramic stopper. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in a .5L French Jelly glass.

Pours a hazy orange-apricot in color with a good 4 to 5 finger white frothy/foamy head that last a good bit before finally settling down to a good 3mm or so after 15 mins. A good amount of sediment is seen at the bottom of the bottle. Decent lacing is seen that sticks to the glass in 'wishbone' form. The aroma is very pleasant of sweet wheat, banana with a hint of spice. Pretty much the same for the taste with the wheat, spice (cloves) banana with a touch of honey coming through for the very smooth finish. Goes down very easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all! Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation , which isn't much actually. A really great brew! PROST!

500 mL flip-top pours a hazed orange color with an ample cap of white head. Darker than a typical hefe and the head shows great retention and lace.

Nose leans heavier on the bananas than cloves with a pungent malt graininess.

Flavor has much more malt that Im used to is a hefe and honestly tastes a bit stale. I wonder how old this is...The yeast is subdued and unfortunately not very pronounced. Still easily finshable, but disappointed. Was hoping for a better hefe.

Great Weiss very enjoyable and balanced taste from sip to finish. Starts out thick with bananas. Yeasty with strong citrusy middle and nice banana bread finish.
