Appearance: Pours a golden, straw, orange color…hazily transparent, I can see a few bubbles bubbling up…some head formed when upon pouring, but nothing really reamians…could use a little life…(3.25/5)

Smell: Sweet, floral/herbal, vanilla, banana and clove…wheat, a touch of citrus (lemon and orange), yeast, grass…very malt based…smells like a classic Belgian style whit ale…lively and nice…(4/5)

Taste: Hefeweizen yeast, green banana, light/pale malts, wheat, a bit of bubblegum and clove…there’s an overall sweetness about it that’s nice…it’s not overly complex, but a refreshing brew that brings tons of flavor to the palate…light and mildly zesty, I’ve never had anything with banana in it that I’ve liked as much as this…(3.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Light body with medium carbonation…it definitely fluffs up a bunch bringing banana, yeast and light lemon bitterness to the palate…refreshing, light…(3.75/5)

Overall: This is a good brew…summertime, backyard barbeque, watching the Cubs day game on the porch TV (think college), hanging out with friends and hotdogs – this beer was made for those occasions…it’s light, refreshing, flavorful and super drinkable…definitely worth trying if you like this style or are looking to expand your horizons…(3.5/5)

Got this as a gift, looks promising. Served in a nonic.

A: Hazy, orange-gold color with a thing white line on the sides of the glass, that's about as far as it got for head and lacing.

S: Wheat, bit of citrus, but mostly grains

T: Fairly sweet, has floral and citrus qualities to it, tastes of yeast, wheat, malt sugars, and barley. Smooth and delicious flavor.

M: Medium amounts of carbonation, balanced fairly well with its sweet, floral flavors, has a fairly rich feel to it unusual for a light colored beer.

O: I really enjoyed this beer, good sweetness combined, fresh flavors, well worth a try

Appearance: Light golden look. Nothing special here. No head retention while drinking. LIght carbonation.

Smell: Bright yeast aroma. Comes off as a banana/mango smell. A lot of the traditional Hefe smell here, very pleasant. This was the strongest aspect of the brew.

Taste: Smooth front to this beer. The yeast guides through to the mild body of this brew. A banana, malt, nut flavor sticks on the palette.

Mouthfeel: Very light, this beer would be a good recommendation for someone getting into craft brews. The yeast fades away more then would be desired.

Overall: Solid. A starter brew for sure. Shows a lot of solid characteristics of a traditional Hefeweizen but I would definitely recommend other authentic German versions first for a similar or lower price.
