Hazy orange hue this one. Small fluff sits atop, with soft carbonation and no lace.

Smell and aroma go hand-in-hand; lots of clove up front, wheat, yeast, bread, straw, malt, light pear and, of course, banana comes through heavy. Medium-bodied, a bit dry. The flavours are there but are missing that pop. Just a straightforward take on the style with no wow factor, but altogether not a horrible beer.

Typical fruity smell of Hefeweizen beers, but this one seems to have a dominate banana smell and taste. Interesting beer to sip on. Not bad for when you just want a single beer to sip on at the end of the day.

Thought this was not a bad way to do a Hefeweizen. Honestly, I think they got it down pretty good. It definitely has an 'American-ness' to it. But I don't view that as a bad thing. Came out nice from the tap. Good flavors throughout.

Lots of Belgian yeast. Big banana flavor. Perfect for a day at the ballpark

Great, affordable easy to find Hefe. Love the banana aroma, nice change from classic Hefe.
