It's beer, bro in law brought it over because he had it at an Oktoberfest. Not the best.

Poured as a pale orange draft with a small white head. I actually finished this beer but it definitely wasn't what I expected. It's a cloudy wheat beer that has some clarity to it.

Smell was of wheat and orange, which helped a bit but I am not a fan of strong wheat scents.

Taste was sweet, orange-y, and again, wheat. I think that the combination is actually pretty good for somebody who would like wheat beers - in which case, add about 2 points to my smell / taste ratings.

Mouthfeel & drinkability both suffered as the mouthfeel was creamy with wheat aftertaste and the drinkability was hard for me to effectively judge as the more I drank, the less I tasted of the other flavors and the more the wheat became the predominant flavor.

Overall, I would not drink this beer again if I didn't begin to like hefeweizens someday.

12oz bottle from Pick's poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark gold with about half a finger of white head. Light aroma of banana and clove. Taste is lightly sweet and watered down. Banana and clove, barely. Light bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it's ok. Nothing to write home about but drinkable nonetheless.

Excellent aroma and appearance, but yuck, mine had way too much cloves or coriander. Couldn't even finish it, and I LOVE wheat beers.
