3.46/5 rDev -6.5%
Tasted this beer poured into a tulip glass. At first, looking into the bottle, I could see a lot of sediment (I'm guessing was yeast). This threw me off a bit, but having brewed a couple of batches of beer myself and knowing that it's hard to keep out sediment I can relate to this and if anything it made me feel better about the craftsmanship and uniqueness of this brew.
Contrasting with a lot of the other reviews I saw here, after pouring, the head didn't last long and became pretty slim. This may have just been my beer, maybe I got an off-batch.
The consistency and color of the beer almost looked like apple juice. Very thick and deep, with an orange-red haze. Similar to a Blue Moon pour, but a definitely deeper looking.
Smelling it brought out really yeasty flavors, and some vanilla and banana among other fruity aromas. The taste wasn't as sweet as I'd expect from the smell, and the carbonation is really prominent. However, this beer is extremely drinkable and enjoyable. I'm glad I bought a 6 of these and I will definitely consider getting another 6 whenever I get the chance.

4.28/5 rDev +15.7%
A - Extremely cloudy, lightly carbonated, golden in color. Hazy.
S - Typical Hefe (Banana, Spice.) Though this Hefe does not seem as pronounced. Considering I somewhat dislike the banana bomb smell it was a very pleasent surprise. Very unique.
T - What can I say- I really like it! Quite frankly, I think this Hefe may be in my top 5.
M - Full bodied at the front of the mouth but deceptively thin at the finish.
D - For a Hefe I'd say this one rates very high on the drinkability scale.
If you want a Hefe that is not too overpowering then this is the one for you.
