Poured from bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a golden yellow with about a half finger of white head, dissipates quickly with a small amount of lacing. Faint smell of banana, nuts, and fresh whole wheat bread. Tastes of a little banana, a little lemon, cracked wheat, and a mild spice finish. Feel is medium body, little to no carbonation, flavor lingers for a little bit but not unpleasant. Overall a nice hefe that I'll be buying again.

Slightly hazy gold beer with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Yeasty nose, not too fruity, with a little hops coming through, nicely balanced. Flavorful, a bit darker than some in this style, nice spicy yeasty flavor without the sweet banana overkill that is found in some similar beers. Clean, slightly slick mouthfeel. Another winner from Blue Mountain. Poured from a bottle with a 9/8/16 best-by date. They've changed the labels, by the way, and no longer include the "swirl" instructions that some other reviewers mention.

Pours hazy, gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is bananas, lemon, and wheat. Not the most complex hefe I have had, but it is clean and hits all of the right notes. This is a quality beer that I would pick up again, especially for a lazy beach day.

Great wheat beer! One of my favorite tasting beers, love the upfront flavor and mild finish. Great summertime brew. Would definitely buy more.
