Got this from Trader Joe's, served in a weizen glass.

A: Pours a crisp, clear gold-orange color with a short off white head and no lacing.

S: Can anticipate sweetness, smells of grains, wheat, malts, yeast

T: Light, sweet flavor to it, tastes of grass, grains, wheat, honey, malts, yeast

M: Medium bodied with ample amounts of carbonation, well balanced

O: The bang for the buck is here, although not spectacular this beer is pretty good but for it's prices, it's near excellency, recommended by me.

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).

I should preface this by saying that I don't care for most Heffs. I have come to trust my gut instinct when it comes to picking beer at random though, and this bottle jumped out at me from the shelf at Trader Joe's, so I figured what the hell, if it sucks, I only have to drink 650ml of it. I was blown away by how smooth the taste and mouth feel was. For me, it had very little nose and I didn't get the banana-like aftertaste that some of the other reviewers mentioned, but it is allergy season, so it might have dulled my pallet. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor of the beer however and it was surprisingly light and refreshing dispute the density and haze. It's a low ABV so it makes for a good session beer.

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with some notes of banana esters from the yeast.
T: Similar to the smell, the overall taste is mostly dominated by flavors of wheat and also has notes of bananas. I couldn't detect any other flavors such as cloves.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have much in the way of complexity when it comes to aromas or flavors, but it's easy to drink and would make for a nice selection on a hot summer day when you're not looking for something overly fancy.

One of my favorites Hef's. I found the Mission St. collection at Traders Joes for $1.99 and figured i would give it a shot. That probably was one of my best decisions ever. Great smell and flavor from start to finish and something i can sit down and enjoy with dinner or if i just want a good beer.
