Classic wheat beer look cloudy ginger beer with thick white head

gnarly aroma roots, wheat and malt

thirst slating wheat tastes with slight syrup with sugar cane tapering into malted tang

good carbonation and great mouthfeel make a readily available
well priced good wheat beer.

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.

Bottle from AJ's Fine Foods in on North Central in Phoenix. 12oz bottle into a chalice, L146116 printed on the bottle, which I believe is equivalent to May 26, 2011?

Poured a fairly hazy golden brown, with a finger of eggshell white head. Lacing is quite light and retention is only modest. Smells strongly of banana and bubblegum, with only a touch of clove. A candied note and a bit of white bread as well. Taste is qutie fizzy initially, with some banana and wheat. Sufficient spicing in the latter part of the mouthfeel and intot he finish. Fizzy cola like carbonation. A decent, albeit lighter, hefeweizen. Good flavours, but nothing that really sets this apart from the pack for me.
