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.

Cloudy pale yellow, decent initial head that fades to nothing.

Banana and clove in the nose.

Banana and clove, but muddled flavors, falling off to pear, and some strange note like cucumber.

Undercarbonated.

Eh, missed the mark for me here.
