Can courtesy of maximum12, thanks again!

Pours a bubbly hazy gold color with a nice head.

Aromas are of clove, banana, esters, and honey.

Taste is light and sweet up front. Creamy, with some banana and honey. Finish is crisp with some mineral snappiness. Pretty tasty, but a bit one note and mostly just sweet.

Mouthfeel is smooth, with nice body, and good carbonation.

Overall, a decent hefe, but it's a bit too sweet to me.

A hefeweizen in a can? Well not really as I think it is closer to a kristalweizen. Pours golden with just a bit of haze. Not much of a head forms but what does show up sticks around for awhile. Nice amount of lacing is left down the glass. Looks very actively carbonated.

Nice yeast aroma of banana, cloves, and bubblegum. The wheat malt smells good as well. Not picking up any rose hips however.

Starts off with a good weizen flavor with a nice wheat flavor with good yeast compliments. But things go wrong with the honey. Honey does not belong in a weizen. Destroys the finish of the beer with a bland sweetness. Again I do not get the rose hips.

For something that appears to be very active, it sure lies flat on the tongue. Bigger than a lot of wheat ales.

They had a good weizen beer going, and then they guild the lily and ruin the experience. Would of been much better being just a straight forward beer.

Served from the tap.

The beer was hazy and amber in colour.

The nose was light and sweet, like light honey. It smelled like a typical Hefeweizen, but with honey.

The beer tasted light and sweet, slightly like honey and like Belgian-yeast. It had a very clean taste.

Would I buy it again? Yes.
