Purchased for $1.99 (650mL). Here is an all around slightly above average cheap drinkable beer. Nothing special for a Hefeweizen but has enough flavor to keep you happy. The mouthfeel is soft and enjoyable, with a cleansing banana aftertaste. A perfect table beer to take gulps of, and the bottle is big enough to share.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Radiant orange hue, consistent with the style. No foam or lacing, and it's a bit flat. No yeasty thickness.

Smell: Definitely bubblegum and a bit of banana in there somewhere.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Banana is the main flavor, with a bit of clove an nutmeg. Refreshing, but the thin mouthfeel leaves much to be desired.

Overall Drinkability: A very average beer.

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...

Maybe I was in the mood for this tonight., and it was GOOD. Served in a chalice from a 650ml bottle into a chalice (of sorts). No freshness labeling.

A: probably the low point here - color is on, opaque, cloudy apricot / orange hue - definitely unfiltered, but doesn't have the "glow" I get from some. Minimal lacing and a ring with a few clouds throughout the bottle. Not stellar, not bad; still on par for style.

S: Distinct bubble yum (just needs comics), a lot of banana, undertone of spicy clove.

T: Mostly follows scent, though the banana steps to the fore while big league chew bubblegum plays a strong second, spicy clove and very slight herbal hops follow through the finish. Spot on for style and I really like it - complex, yet very approachable.

M: On the heavy side of medium. This is an unfiltered brew, I found a distinct oily coating on lips & tongue, not unpleasant, but unmistakable. A tad thick - couldn't see having more than one.

O: I was looking for a Hefe when I found this at TJ's . I'm glad I tried it - very much a text book example of the Hefe style (IMHO). This was the taste I walked into the store after, and this brew delivered it - nicely done!

I was looking for a Hefe, and I think this is a great example of the style!

Poured this into a weizen glass, and the beer makes a two finger thick white foam presentation, and the body his dark gold and cloudy.

The aroma is peppery, banana, some clove and original flavor bubble gum.

Flavor wise it is pretty much in line with the aroma, and feels light in body but with an oily slickness.

For a lower ABV'd hefeweizen, this would do just fine in Germany if only the crown of foam would retain a bit better.

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 - Nice orange gold body. Ok white head with low retention and ok lace.

S - Light nose of lemon, damp wheat, and orange.

T - Dilute orange juice, soft wheat, bright semi-acidic hop center.

M - Light body, somewhat under carbonated.

O - Not a bad hefe. Nothing special though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Little head on a honey amber color.

S: Fruity and yeasty much like a belgian style. Somewhat offputting as it smells rather musty.

T: As with the smell it drinks a lot like a belgian style. Fruity musty. Wheat comes through a little but not a key player here.

M: Sits with a medium body. good amount of carbonation.

Overall a pretty average beer. The taste is so musty I'm unsure if I will be able to finish off the bottle. We'll see. I think it was like $2 for a bomber but... even at that not sure if it's worth it.
