0.5l can.
Pours amber cloudy beer with excellent dense white head, receding slowly to significant laces. Classic weizenbier aroma: banana, yeasts, lollipops, clove. All beers under the brand experience a lack of density and saturation, they all are watery and inconsistent. So is hefeweizen. Along with low carbonation, it makes the beer banal and ordinary.

A: Grapefruit juice (not pink but regular) cloudy yellow brown, large off white head fades to a slight foam. Some carbonation visible.

S: Plastic, caramel, cloves, coriander.

T: Plastic, sour, sweet, coriander, cloves, watery, slight grapefruit bitterness, especially near the end. Very crisp and grapefruit, sharp carbonation.

M: Well carbonated for a Hefweizen, medium body.

O: Not well done in my opinion. Like I am drinking bad grapefruit pop. Would cut through some greasy and some spicy food, but not really worth trying.

Pours a cloudy and hazy orange/white/grapefruit liquid; no lace; head disappeared after a few minutes. Smells like coriander, spice, some citrus, banana, and clove. It tasted quite flat, fizzy, and bland. There was a bit of sweet fruit and banana esters; soda pop-clove aftertaste. The mouthfeel was light, watery, fizzy, flat, and almost tasteless. Overall, this is not a good hefeweizen. It would be okay if it's the only available brew, but it is just a below average, almost tasteless, beer.

Quick notes:

Classic pour and smell, pedestrian; taste of sweet candied banana chips and low clove, not much else; really heavy wheat, but also some unwanted crispness; a bad herbal skunk, mildly bitter; not a bad canned weizen, but still, that's what this is
