Got this one from flyingbison over on TBS, thank you sir!
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Pours a cloudy light blonde with an enourmous three finger bright white head. Thick sticky lacing holds on to the sides of the glass throughout, great looking brew for sure. Full aroma of clove, banana, and crisp wheat. Underneath all that is a sweet hoppy citrus; orange and grapefruit, very unique nose on this one. Taste begins with the wheat and spice, but it's a bit dulled down compared to the aroma. Bready malts midway with a dash of cinnamon. Banana and lemon zest in the aftertaste with a slight metallic flavor, doesn't linger much at all. Light to medium body with a somewhat abrassive feel from the aggressive carbonation. Not a bad summer beer, but unfortunately the flavor doesn't live up to the nose. Give me the Imperial Weizen anyday over this one, still worth a shot though.

I ended up with a bottle of this after a weekend road trip with my buddies. A friend of mine commented that he was going to clear out his fridge and bring some beer along for our weekend away. This was still left in my cooler once I got home and I drank it about a week later. The first thing I want to comment on is that I noticed that there hasn't been any reviews made on this beer in over a year. When was it last brewed? I realized that I was drinking a beer that is at least a year old. (no "bottled on" date on the bottle). I don't think this is a beer that is supposed to age so it may affect in a negative way what I think about it.
The first sip was almost medicinal or acidic in it's taste. I didn't like it. As I drank it though, I got a pleasant wheat taste and some fruits underneath this. It wasn't anything special but certainly went down easy enough once I got going.
