Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of banana, clove, spice. Taste is good, refreshing, banana's, spices, wheat, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Sour apples and tart hard candy on the nose. I don't think it's supposed to smell like this.

Straw-yellow in color with a crisp BIG head at first but the head completely disappears very quickly and leaves no lacing.

Again with sour apples, very tart, almost puckering. Tastes nothing like it should. It's super carbonated, and a light body. I'm guessing I got a bad bottle. I will review this again when it's fresh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - bright, cloudy yellow with a large, bubbly, fizzy, white head that fades quickly

S - white grapes, apples, straw

T - straw, grapes, banana, some faint spice, mildly tart finish

M - medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated

This is a pretty basic beer. It has notes of straw and complex fruit from the yeast. Some more spice would help add to the simplistic flavor profile. It's not a bad beer, but there are definitely better Hefeweizens out there. I'll pass on this beer in the future.

I poured This nast beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was cloudy yellow ugly pouring with no head at all. No lacing no nothing. The smell was sour as was the taste. Like a Bad Belgium beer that had sat opened for a month. Very disappointing and I guess it could just have been a outdated variety pk I got hold of. Regardless, I'm not trying another ever.
