Just Poured this one up in my beer mug. Cloudy yellow/orange with a huge fluffy white head.Bubbles are streaming up the glass.
Smells sweet but not as much banana smell as I expected. More like pear with a tiny but of clove.
Tastes a little watered down. Don't get me wrong, it displays many hefe traits but I'm somewhat letdown in comparison to Shneider weisse and the like.

Bottle purchased from Hyvee in Council Bluffs, NE.
Best by 3/2012.
Poured into a Schell's weizen glass.

Pours a fairly large, thick head composed of small bubbles. Peering at the body, I notice aggressive streams of carbonation and the cloudy, nearly opaque character that's due to the unfiltered preparation of the beer. Body color is copper brown away from light, quite dark compared to others I've had in the style, and a golden yellow color when held up to a light source. As the head descends over the course of a few minutes (it always retains about one centimeter of foam) it leaves some lacing along the sides of the glass, which is augmented each time a sip is taken.

Strong aroma of yeast and grain bill, with some bread and very faint banana as well. Not as upfront with its bouquet as Weihenstephaner or Ayinger, nor as complex.

Taste opens with lingering bright sweetness. Other flavors seep into this from the middle of the tongue, including yeast, ripe bananas, and faint coriander. Aftertaste is of sweet barley/wheat malt and faint residual banana with a fair bit of tartness. As with the aroma, not as "aggressive" as Weihenstephaner or Ayinger. This is also much better tasting when warmed for a bit out of the fridge.

The beer is medium-bodied with a noticeable, but not overly aggressive carbonation level that at first gives this a prickly sensation, but then feels very smooth on the palate. Finish is dry, which complements the mild tartness in the aftertaste nicely.

This was an above average hefeweizen, but not as impressive as Weihenstephaner or Ayinger in terms of aromatic or gustatory complexity and show.

Poured properly into my new Spiegelau wheat beer glass, in which it was pretty cool to watch the yeast cut through the foam. Poured a cloudy pale golden color with a rocky white head that keeps firm throughout. Heavy lemon and clove nose with hints of wheat. Average carbonation with a lower than expected mouth feel. Sweet malty taste with strong hints of clove, banana, wheat and yeast. Great example of the style.
