The body is clear and the nose isn't as rich or enjoyable as a true hefe, but its very enjoyable.

I'm thirsty, and I found a Heinnie in the fridge. In this case, the beer is Heinieweisse, not Heineken. Out of a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

A little hazy inside that body. Its color is like pale golden straw and many visible carbonation bubbles run through this beer. On top rests a soapy head which does retain well and leaves a few spots of lace. The aroma is mediocre. There are some watered down banana and clove notes, but it doesn't hit the crescendo that the German counterparts hit.

Heinnieweisse is unusual. It has the aspects of a watered down Bavarian hefeweizen and the added touch of tartness of a saison. I don't particularly love it or hate it, but at least the beer preserves an easy drinking aspect.
