I think I got a poorly bottled batch, because it had no carbonation, no head, taste was so bitter and foul that I couldn't finish the bottle. Went through the entire six pack - same results. Smelled bad, not like a hefe should. Bottled October 1st. I'll try this again in the future, but not anytime soon.

I normally like Wheat beers, but couldn't even finish this one. Yuck. Could not really discern just what the heck flavor this was.

On tap at Garland, TX. Pours hazy-golden with long lasting, fluffy, tall, white head. Aroma is of what malt, yeast and banana. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and strange fruit. Finish is long with strange aftertaste. I would not buy this brew again.
