Pours hazy pale orange with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly.

Nose has notes of banana clove and citrus phenols with a backbone of wheat and straw like malts

Yeast is upfront and is dominate. Hints of citrus are present before it finishes with wheat on the back end.

Light and refreshing. Carbonation doesn't last long but is good while its there
Overall this is a good hefe with a good amount of complexity and a healthy amount of yeast. Very drinkable.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A muted yellow and slight light brown edged body, opaque in appearance with a good amount of carbonation. Head is bleach white, and very creamy growing almost three fingers tall off the pour, and settling to a nice whipped up thin puck.

Classic Hefeweizen nose, with minor lemon but a very good bubblegum sweetness. Chewy and fruity with a very solid malt wheat backbone. Real nice inviting sweetness on this, very nice.

Palate has all the trademarks of a good hefe, but it's a bit watery and fleeting. Light chewy wheat density with good bubblegum like sweetness. Clove like finish with a good wheat like bread sense on it. Lemon notes hinted on the nose are quite muted, with a nice simple chew.

This is pretty solid, just missing some body that would give it some good depth, but it's a nice stateside produced hefe to know about.

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a weizen pint glass. Best by date on bottle 4.12.13... whoops! Well, it's been in the fridge since January.

Look- Light amber, mild haze. Three fingers of loose, crackly white head that falls very quickly, minimal lacing. Poor retention and stick for a hefeweizen.

Smell- Sweet, white grape juice, melon, light spice, more banana than usual for the style, quite fruity. Floral, fruity, juicy with a sharper twang. Almost lemonade-like.

Taste- Sweet, very assertive ripe banana and light brown sugar. Bready finish, almost oatmeal like. Banana bread and 'nilla wafer comes to mind. Overall impression of sweetness, but by the finish it's cleaned itself up with a clean white tea bitterness, soft citrus pith, more white grape juice. Not quite like any other hefe I've had before, I'm liking this a lot.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full body, moderate carbonation comes out up front. Slick, almost heavy feel. Finishes soft, powdery, mild coating. Heftier than anticipated, but seems to suit it.

Overall- I'm not a huge fan of the Hefe style and not particularly enamored with Two Brothers, so my expectations going in were moderate at best, particularly with the beer being past it's best-by date and all. At this point I'm just disappointed that I only have the one - if this was available around here it'd make my go-to list no problem.

Pours a HUGE, dense, lather of white head with great persistence. A nice aroma of banana with a touch of clove in the back. Lovely turbid, straw color. Starts off slightly sweet, slightly citric, a flash of metallic hop, then a really nice, rich malt comes through. The finish is a blend of the malt and mild hoppiness.

When I first tried this, I didn't recall there being such a noticeable metallic twang. I can't verify if this bottle was stored in the ideal conditions, so yeah.... I still find this to be a favorite example of an American Hefe.
Dancing Man is better, but this is still good.
