I have had this in a bottle and was severely disappointed in it. But while at the Old Spaghetti Factory in downtown St. Louis, I thought I'd try it again.
And it was great. The flavor had the wheatiness that the bottle lacked and a slight fruit taste on the finish. I then had it again at the Schlafly Bottleworks and it was just as good. The smell was still lacking, but this may have been due to the temperature it was served at. However, I didn't give it time to warm up because it was too tasty. The yellow/golden haze was what I expected and the mouthfeel was thick then clean.
I probably still would not buy this beer in a 6-pack, but on tap, it was something totally different. It was delicious.

Pours to a thin white head that lasts. Hazy yellow. Aroma is sharp, bready wheat, sweet pale malt, and noble hops. Flavor is crisp and sharp with grainy wheat and a touch of Tettnang hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light and dry. Overall a throwback to the popular "American hefes".of the late 90s. Sentimental favorite.

I CAN't put enough love out there for my local, in-person trader, tone77! He calls me a master of The CANQuest (TM) and yet he comes through time and time again with new CANs for me. Cheers, bro!
From the CAN: "For best flavor, keep refrigerated". Bet, yo!
I pulled out my new Schlafly CAN Sessions CAN glass, listened to the Crack, and employed an inverted Glug. I had two fingers of dense, bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a hazy, but not cloudy (WTF?) golden-yellow (SRM = 4). Nose was light, kind of herbal tea-like. I was reminded of Jasmine, but in a Hefe? Where are the bananas? Where are the cloves? Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was mildly spicy, but it lacked any Oomph! or anything that would make me think of or call this a Hefeweizen. Understand, it pains me greatly to dun any of their beers. I know their brewer, Stephen Hale, I have personally met Tom Schlafly and I always recommend them to visitors. Chalk this up to a rare misstep, but I am deeply unimpressed. The finish was bland, boring and lackluster.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very mild, just a bit of wheat, banana. Taste is also mild, lemony, somewhat tart, drinks more like and American pale wheat Ale imo. Not much of the banana and clove usually associated with this style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.
