hazy yellow, smell of banana and beer. Taste artificial banana and so off wheat flavor not good. After taste actually better than beer itself which isn't saying much. Didn't drink it all and wouldn't get again. This shouldn't be called beer. I don't know how everybody thinks this is so good.

Not really a hefe fan, but do like Yuengling, so gave it a go: Seemed to have the prerequisite features: banana, bubblegum(on 1st sip), clove, etc., but just not my cup of tea overall. Perhaps if appropriately paired with the right food, it might be worth a revisit or perhaps doing the lemon twist thing that some have suggested with Hefes. Not something I would ever purchase again.

Pours something between straw and very light copper with a generous head. Laces along the glass, smells of banana less sour than most hefeweizens. Tastes like banana with a touch of wheat. The malt really takes a backseat to the banana and the nothingness. Too light bodied, and rather plain.
