From the back label: "Best before: 03:07:17 12:52"
The bottle that I have is 1 pint 0.9 fl. oz and is 4.9% ABV.

Appearance: It is opaque with an orange color. The head is large, thick, creamy textured, and pure white.

Aroma: I get a bubblegum aroma.

Taste: Some light bubblegum flavor comes through along with a sweet banana flavor.

Mouthfeel: It feels thick and smooth on the palate with a very wet finish.

Overall: It is pretty disappointing to get an import in after the "best before" date. It wasn't the best Hefeweizen and I probably wouldn't buy it again as an import. I would give it another shot if it was fresher and on tap.

All the classic German Hefe elements are here, bubblegum, clove banana notes, creamy mouthfeel. My bottle sez 4.9 %. right up there with my favorites in this style, franzenkaner, Konig Ludwig. easy recommend and would gladly repeat purchase.

Pours hazy golden with not very large head that soon dissipates. Aroma is sweet wheat with bits of smoke.

Taste is not the very typical Hefeweizen, smoky wheat, light banana with some sourness and somewhat dry finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium, less than average carbonation.

Flavour seemed to be rather strange, espcially that smoky part. I can not say I enjoyed the beer too much.
