On tap at the brewery. All those mediocre reviews from 5 years ago still hold. No banana, no clove, no general yeast. A bit of lemon in the smell a a touch tart in the taste. Otherwise it might as well be an American Pale wheat. I was plenty

It's a decent Hefeweizen, but not spectacular.

Draft to Hefeweizen
16oz

@Brendans Irish Pub, Orleans Hotel, Las Vegas

App- Brendans is a very dark bar. When I removed the beer from said bar I said, "This is way of for a hefeweizen" Too orange, too clear. Nice head though. Some speckled cling.

Smell- Really was nothing in the nose. It had no bubblegum, no pepper, no spice, no banana. Just a bit of malty lemon.

Taste- I couldn't finish my glass. It was very bland and off putting. I tried to keep going to see if better as warmed, was a bit worse. Missing key flavors of the Hefe style.

Mouth- A soft body with a damp medium carbonation. No last residual flavors.

Drink- Not even sure I would call it a hef.

Served on tap at The Pub in the Monte Carlo.

It's a typical hefe appearance... hazy with a light white head.

The smell is faint, but mostly lemon.

The taste is even more faint... not an abundance of flavor in this one.

It's easy to drink, but that's about the only thing going for this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

From the tap, the beer was a cloudy yellow/golden color with a tad of foam. The aroma is very faint with some hints of a hefeweizen-like notes.

The palate is barely chewy, definitely not up to par with the style. The wheat upfront leads to an absence of spice in the finish. There really isn't much to be said here. More development of flavor would be appreciated. On the other hand, it was quite drinkable.
