2.54/5  rDev -27.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

11.2 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A: Pours a cloudy dark gold color. The head is a three finger white shade with that has a foamy appearance to it. Retention is really nice, too.

S: Not only are the typical banana/clove estery aromas lacking here...so is just about anything else. About the only thing I really notice is a mild cherry-like sweetness and the faintest hint of wheat. Not really a bad aroma - after all, how can a nose so weak be considered bad?

T: Well, the aroma suggested a feeble flavor, and that's what I got. While the lack of weizen esters allows the opening wheat quality and finishing noble hops to shine through more strongly, it really drinks like a dinky-ass US wheat ale (think Widmer Hefeweizen) instead of a proper German hefeweizen. Okay, so a slight banana presence builds up after a few sips, but by then it's too little, too late. Just a boring beer in all flavor aspects.

M: The texture does a good job of staying out the way of the lack of flavor by finishing with a mildly clean dryness to it. I could do without the budding wet, syrupy linger, but I'll certainly give it points for being refreshing and crisp.

O: A score this low would suggest a mediocre-to-poor effort riddled with flaws - however this isn't actually flawed, just devoid of any good weizen characteristics...or any characteristics for that matter. This one is certainly easy to down, at least. But when both Sierra Nevada and Weihenstephaner make weizens that are both superbly drinkable AND full of character, why should you care about this one?

Picked this up in Atlantic Beach. Not really a fan of this style, but had to give it a try. It had a great golden look, but it didn't have a great taste to match. However, I believe this would make a great dinner beer. Especially for the bargain prices you get here
