Had on tap. Very light hefeweizen. To the point of watery on the body. The smell is classic, with banana, clove and wheat taking the lead. The taste is a watered down version of the smell.

This beer arrives a partly couldy dark yellow color. The head os big, but fades quickly. The aroma has banana, and a hint of clove. The taste similar, but with less clove. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied and less chewy than I prefer in a hefe. Overall, this is an alright hefe.

I bought this off the Binny's single shelf. It poured a clear pale yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of white wine. The taste was weak for a hefe. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's not a very good hefe.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pale, cloudy, straw gold. Watery wheat malt, some spice and lemon zest. Thin banana-clove sweetness trailing to pale/wheat malt.

A: hazy blonde, almost lemonade tint
S: yeast and banana
T: banana, citrus and spices, not unlike a winter ale
F: smooth, not as heavy as other wheats
O: goes down easy, even with the almost overpowering banana flavor; I've had better German wheats but this is not bad at all

Hazy banana color with a fleeting 2 finger head. 100% opaque.

Aromas of fusel alcohol, banana creme, and clove, maybe a touch of vanilla.

Flavor is fairly washed out and weak, with some watery clove and banana, banana creme, club soda.

Carbonated mouthfeel with a semi-dry finish.

Overall this was upsetting. Just nothing to stand out here. Was hoping more from Ale Asylum.

Unshadowed pours a bright yellow/nuclear green color with a small head. Nice mellow aroma with hints of banana. Taste is light, a bit bitter, and lots of banana flavors. Light and watery. Overall, not bad, lighter and refreshing.
