Pours orange, cloudy, voluptuous tight head

Clove, banana, sweetness, light carbonic spritz and a small metallic note. Some floral qualities too

Flavour similar, more breadyness, lactic juicyness on the end, no bitterness perceptible.

Thin body for strength as you would expect with the high carbonation.

Pint sized bottle into PP glass (has curvy look like a weizen glass)
BB 11/2017
L- pours a clear (surprisingly?) burnt orange, with big fluffy white head, great retention, some lacing as the beer goes down
S- the nose is surprising, as the first whiff is toasted malt(which I like), followed by the expected subtle banana & cloves, with some floral notes as well
T- the taste follows the aroma, and is toasted caramel malt, followed by the subtle banana and cloves with a real nice floral & spicy finish
F- the mouthfeel is as expected for the style, smooth and creamy, with only a slight barley-like coarse-ness
Overall a great beer for a hot Summer day, with the uniqueness of a more malty Hefe

Super thick tan pillow of foam that eventually fades to thin ring. Some lacing. Color is very opaque orange with a hint of brown. Aroma of bananas, barley, bread, ripe lemon, ripe grapefruit, raspberry streusel. Palate is light and delicate with notes of bananas, fresh lemon, fresh bread, dates, floral booziness with a banana bread sweet finish. Pros very flavorful and delicious, very balanced- sweet, bitter, alcohol, sour; super complex, refreshing. Cons almost nothing, head fades completely, finish may be a little sweet, a lot of banana. 93/100.

Surprised by this as it's a bucket list beer and ... not sure I dig it.

Certainly looks good in the glass. Aroma is where it starts to go a bit sideways. Smells overwhelmingly of cloves and bubblegum.

Taste is sweet. Cloying kinda sweet. Only interesting bit is the natural wheat -- which gives it a unique grainy quality.

Otherwise, meh.

Served on tap in a traditional weizen glass. And thank God for that, because some itty-bitty pour isn't going to cut it for this one. Pour is a pink-tinted orange that practically glows golden, hazy, and topped with two fingers of tightly packed foam. Aroma is beautiful: banana and clove, citrus and sweet malt. The flavors explode on the tongue, with spice taking a backseat to the fruity banana /citrus /bubble gum flavors. Amazingly refreshing.

On a recent Royal Caribbean cruise this was honestly the only passable beer that they sold on the ship. Once I found that they had this, I ordered at least one every day. It's actually quite a good hefeweizen. It has a nice color, just enough head, and a nice carbonation that continues to bubble as you drink it, providing a very pleasing mouth feel when drinking it. Wheat beers aren't my #1 favorite, but they're in my top 5 and this is one I would consider keeping stocked in my refrigerator, especially since none of the local Texas breweries make a good hefeweizen.

Nice smell of clove and malt. The taste ha plenty of banana esters and a good wheat flavor. Lightish body and medium carb. Good hefeweizen in my opinion.
