I'm not a huge beer drinker by any means, but from time to time I'll set sail into the hoppy sea.

Mainly stay to hefeweizens, belgian pales, things of that sort.

I was in TJs and saw this and picked it up because of the GREAT color.

Opened it up today and did not enjoy the rest of what it had to offer...

It tastes exactly like original flavor Corn Nuts. I can't stand it. Ruined the beer for me :(

Looks frickin great, though...

2.58/5  rDev -27.7%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Brown glass bottle served into hefeweissbier glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of fair cream, decent thickness, and fair retention. Cloudy yellow-orange colour.

Sm: Lemon peel, very unwelcome pale hops, and light orange hops. A strangely bad aroma for the style. Moderately strong.

T: Lemon peel and pale hops. A simple crappy build that ruins the style. It's a bit dirty as well. Badly balanced to boot. The main thing it has going for it is that it's not watery.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with a certain awkward astringency I don't like. Doesn't complement the style.

Dr: Not horribly drinkable - a relative rarity for the style. The price isn't great either for an in-state purchase. I'd leave this one on the shelf, lads. The ABV is low as well.

2.6/5  rDev -27.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Contemptible 22oz bottle into 9oz Pilsener glass. Dated 5/2/12. Poured a hazy light gold color with less than 1/2 inch of white head that had very low retention and no lacing.

The aroma had a very light wheat scent, almost benign, and just the barest hints of the expected banana and clove scents. Just kinda meh smelling. The taste was the same, just a very subdued example of what should be. Not bad, per se, just bland.

The body was light and even and meh. Drinkability was OK, but why bother? With the lack of overall presence, this is a forgettable example of the style. Maybe a budget buy for a gathering where the focus isn't on beer.

A bomber. Pours hazy-golden with a small, white head, lively carbonation and nor too much hefe in the bottle. Aroma is sweet, malty with some fruity and hoppy notes. Light, slightly crisp body. Flavors are some yeast, apples, sweet malt and hints off spicy hops. Short, dry finish. This brew lacks flavors and complexity of good hefeweizen.

2.88/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 22-ounce bottle into a Weizen glass.
Pours a golden color with good deal of haze, one-finger of head and no lacing. The smell is mostly sweet and seems malty. The banana and clove aromas are initially undetectable, but then the banana emerges as the beer gets warmer.

Unfortunately, the banana aromas don't transfer over to the beer as the banana and clove are difficult to detect. A heavy carbonation overpowers the drink and leaves little room for other flavors to emerge.

Overall, not a beer I'd drink again, although I've really enjoyed other beers from the Steinhaus Brewing (aka Firestone Walker).

2.93/5  rDev -17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

From a 22-ounce bomber purchased at Trader Joe's

Appearance- Very good appearance. A nice white head retention. Decently carbonated (seems a little more carbonated than then the typical hefe) with a hazy typical hefe look.

Smell- Light smell. Very little banana flavors with mostly a light undertone of clovish flavor.

Taste- Very one note. Not super crisp nothing that makes it stand out or spectacular flavor profile. Fairly absent front taste that cascades into a yeasty, bready back taste. The back end of the flavor profile is the best aspect of the taste. Very minimal after taste.

Mouthfeel- Fairly watery with light carbonation.

Drinkability- Very high. It is a hefeweizen!

Overall- For me a below average hefeweizen. I'm glad I've tasted it and kudos for Trader Joe's for shipping this out since I'd never get to try it otherwise but I have other hefeweizens I would recommend over this beer.

2.98/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - Cloudy golden straw appearance. There is a four-finger, eggshell head that dies off far to quickly, with no visible activity in the glass. The initial appearance was promising but after about 10 seconds the beer looks pretty dead and uninviting.

S - The aroma has plenty of clove, a good helping of grainy bread, and a touch of lemon.

T/M - Light-medium bodied but overall the mouthfeel is lacking due to the complete absence of carbonation. There is plenty of clove in the flavor, as well as hints of wheat. Mildly sweet and overall a very enjoyable flavor. I expect a spritzer like finish from my hefeweizen but there is none here due to lack of carbonation.

D - Good flavor, but bad presentation. Overall the beer just doesn't leave you with much to walk away with. Fix the carbonation and I think it would have a positive impact on appearance, mouthfeel and taste.
