The first thing I noticed is how cloudy the beer is, maybe the cloudiest I have ever seen. You can even see chunks of wheat and what not floating around. It is a very murky yellow, like pineapple juice. There is minimal head, a weak retention, and not much lacing.
The initial waft of smells is dominated by a banana aroma. It is backed by a wheaty or bready undertone. The taste is very similar. It is noticeably sweet, like banana bread.
Light body with moderate carbonation. A bit of a chalky feel. Overall, it tastes like a weak hefeweizen to me (I wonder why they classify it as a wheat beer?). It's not undrinkable though, as I still enjoyed it. It was a hot day and my AC was on the fritz, and this beer made the situation survivable.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
Light orange, to dark lemon yellow body, slightly lighter and brighter towards the bottom of the glass. Head makes about three fleeting fingers of soapy white head to fall and quickly disappear into a good thick collar, but thin puck.
Standard hefe nose on the bouquet, but hints with much more strange peanut butter like yeast esters. Faint clove, little malt wheat chewy character, and no sense of sweetness. THere is a thick sweet peanut quality coming off this however, and a strange out there hint of nut and dry quality on the nose.
Palate hints toward hefe quality, but with spicier notes, and subdued classic hefe quality. Wet bodied with a lighter feel, and not sense of malt chewy character and depth. Almost peppery, near hot finish on the clove like ester front. Density really missing, and the bubblegum sweetness and where is the lemon.
It's an interesting take on the style, and comes off a bit strangely amped, but still a bit lifeless unfortunately. No regrets trying it though, and no harm either.
