500mL can. Brew date: Jan. 5, 2011; best by Apr. 5, 2012. 5.3% ABV, 11.8 degrees Plato.

Contract brewed for Kaufland grocery stores in Eastern Europe.

Appearance: Light golden with a touch of orange. Two fingers of dense, rocky foam with great retention. Not extremely cloudy, bubbles are easily seen swirling from its depths. Left a couple of rings of lacing.

Smell: More bubblegum than banana in the nose. Sweet.

Taste: Mslty, wheaty, yeasty, no real banana or cloves tastes. Slight bitterness, but also not overwhelmingly sweet either. Kind of ordinary.

Mouthfeel: Light to moderate body. Just a touch of carbonation on the palate. Finishes a bit dry.

Overall: Cloudy, check. Yeasty, check. Looks good in the glass, check. But it doesn't check near all the boxes for a great Hefeweizen. It is drinkable, even mildly refreshing, but I'd rather have almost any other Hefeweissbier that I have already had before this one again.

Extremely better than I thought. It feels a bit mild at first - a boring taste. And then the after taste, yes; I can feel the silk-like soft fruity smell after the swallowing process. This must be that banana thing. This is pretty good! I'd say it's near the level of Hoegaarden. From where I live, this beer is extremely cost-efficient. Would recommend in a mid-high level.
