It has a nice golden honey color to it. There is a haziness to it that is so thick that you can't see through the beer. Light passes through, giving it a nice glow. Almost no head formed when poured. I even added a bit of an aggressive pour towards the last quarter of the bottle. What head formed was white and faded quickly to nothing. There is no lacing on the glass.

When you take a whiff of the beer, you get a combination of wheat and grains. There is a banana undertone with just a hint of citrus. The scent is less than pleasant. The taste mainly consists of bananas, cloves, wheat and a slight bitter hop finish. The after taste reminds me of eating Cheerios with green, unripe bananas on it.

It is a medium bodied beer; there is no coating to the mouth. The carbonation is a little heavy for my tastes and bites on the tongue.

This is a standard American Wheat beer done in the Bavarian Hefeweizen style. It isn't something I would go out of my for, and to be honest, it took drinking half of the beer before the flavor got to something that didn't bother me. This is definitely not a beer I would recommend to friends or even to a stranger at a bar.
