look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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 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.

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.
