Immortal Beloved pours to a very brief-lived medium creamy white head on a very effervescent deep gold body that is somewhere between cloudy and hazy. Lacing is sparse, and immediately beats a quick retreat back into the beer. The nose is moderate in intensity, as suits the style, leading with yeast, then a nice blend of candy-like banana, clove-spice and faint alcohol overtones; there is surprisingly little wheat character to be found. The initial flavor is banana candy with hints of tart citrus; by mid-palate the banana deepens and sweetens, some spicy clove character emerges to back it up and the tartness increases a bit. There's just a bit of yeast character present, and the wheat foundation is mostly obscured by the other flavors. The finish is citrus/estery, showing a tart banana flavor; this plus a bit of yeast bite constitutes the linger, which lasts for a few minutes. The mouthfeel is commensurate with the light-medium body, while the texture is a bit too peppery from the over-expressed carbonation and shows a disappointing lack of creaminess. (11.2 oz screwtop bottle, no code date)

Chicago 1/4/16 (11.2 oz bottle poured into beer glass). Hazy dark golden pour with generous white head and heavy carbonation fading to mild upon settling. Strong lemon, orange and yeast aroma. Heavy feel and felt stronger than the 5.5% ABV. Taste of lemon and citrus dominates, didn’t like the taste of banana. Many better Hefeweizen options out there.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is similar to an American Adjunct Lager with a large white head. Sweet aroma with an overly sweet taste of bananas and some yeast. Not a bad beer, Mexico seems to be developing a craft beer industry also.

Smell of strong canned cat food, deep Amber color with little head and no lacing, not even close to a traditional Belgian or German hefe, odd taste of bad quality yeast, none of the usual flavor except perhaps an off flavor banana note, but it's not correct and overall a really unpleasant beer. It's a shame because the art on the bottle was very appealing and I love wheat beers, fortunately I only bought a single at Ramirez Beverage Warehouse in south LA so I only wasted $1.89. 7/11.2 ounces will be poured down the drain.

Probably one of the worst Hefeweizens I have ever had. It's sweet, but I don't get much of the banana / clove flavors I associate with German Hefeweizens. There's actually a weird yeast funkiness to this beer, which kind of reminded me of some funky Belgian beers I have had. The one redeeming factor to me is the artwork on the bottles and 6-pack case. I still have 4 beers from the 6-pack. I may drink them, but maybe I'll find alternative culinary uses for them.

Has a good fruity/banana smell when you open the bottle. Pours a dark and very hazy orange color with little to no head. There is just a hint of carbonation and lacing. The initial taste is a little off when I compare it the other Hefe's I have had. The aftertaste is not much different either. Not really impressed, would probably buy again

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is cloves, banana and grain.
The taste is sweet, mild bitter note, kind of fruity too.
The texture is softer.
It's fine enough.

Orange scents with bubblegum, wheat bread, and Belgian yeast. Taste starts off bread like but finishes very wet and inky, almost an under attenuated taste. Okay on the subliminal flavors but not so good on quality
