Served in a wheat glass.

Pours a pale golden straw color with a thin white cap of head that dissipates down to a tiny white ring around the edges. Aromas are muted with typical notes of banana and bubblegum. Maybe some lemon as well. Taste if fairly thin and bland. Light banana upfront and ends yeasty. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and thin.

I was happy to see these in 12 packs for the winter, a nicer label, and a price of $12.99. That being said this is about all it had going for it. A pretty average Hefe. Shorts is either hit or miss and this is a miss in my opinion.

Tasted over the winter, posted from my notes 4 months later.

This pours a crystal gold in color with bright white foam.

I found a Bavarian hefe character on it, with banana clove and coriander in the aroma.

The flavor has a muddled banana clove with no perceptible hop character.

A little too "run of the mill hefe” for my tastes.
