Poured from a bottle into a glass. Pours a murky honey color with a cap that dissapeard fast. Left slight lacings along surface. Aroma is a sweet maltiness with yeast, biscuit, citrus, and faint banana. Taste is pretty mellow with a yeasty sweetness, but more citrus and grain than anything. Reminds me more of a witbier. Faint banana is noticable. Light citrus hop dry finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Goes down smooth, fast and refreshing. Great beer to knock around with and enjoy anytime.

This brew poured to a fairly cloudy yellow with a pretty thick frothy head, a fair looking brew. The aroma does seem to have banana aroma properties along with some slight clove and wheat. The aroma here seems to be pretty good, just nothing really is standing out. The flavor is what I would expect from a basic Hefe. Pretty pedestrian in flavors which will appeal to the mass. The banana seems to come out a little more here and clove takes a back seat. Some odd flavors at the tail end but that could be due to age and/or how this beer might have been stored. Overall I feel that this is a fair brew but there are better Hefe's out there that are easy to get.

A - Pours a light gold with a touch of haze and a thin head of foam which breaks down quickly.

S - Toasted wheat, lemon and orange citrus tones, and coriander.

T - herbal flavors prevail, with citrus and grain backing up.

M - Full and warm with a clean finish. Slightly bubbly.

D - Everything one would expect from a Belgian style wheat beer. Nothing more, nothing special.

Looked like an average orange/yellow wheat, with a small white head.

Smell wasn't too strong. Mostly citrus and spicy, maybe cloves. In many ways, it was similar to a mild cigar.

Citrus flavors were first to come out, mainly orange and lemon. Then there was a definite banana taste, followed again by the cloves. The banana was interesting, and worked well.

Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Nothing amazing, but appropriate.
