This "heffenweis" taste as if they took a crap lager and bottled it with cheap banana candy. I make heffenweis beers and my esters and phenols are created during primary open fermentation, this was contrived as if they literally put cheap banana candy in it. I was so dissapointed with this one, i work hard and craft my beers to be enjoyed by a large community of friends, where does this brewery get off putting this dreck in the market.

No Label Hefe Weizen has an unusually narrow, white head, a very hazy, yellow-gold appearance, with a descending gray-yellow cloud, some bubble streams, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of subdued banana, coriander, citrus, and wheat bread, and the flavor is of those elements and likewise subdued (one could say it is dull). Mouthfeel is light and watery, and No Label Hefe Weizen finishes semi dry and on the mundane side.

Thanks to Shoky01 for this

App- a very very light yellow. Not sure how to classify color? A good 2 finger head with a pure white color. No cling or lace. Very hazy and cloudy.

Smell-  Its a hefe but what the hell is added? Grass? Beef jerky? Its a small wheat, lemony, peppery aroma just doesnt flow well. Lacks balance and layers.

Taste-  I kinda get the classification as a hefe. Lots of hefe fake bubblegum, pepper and malts. Behind that its a grassy, beef jerky type of flavor. Not sure why so average but had some highlights with a little sweetness.

Mouth- A lighter body with a soft carbonation. The beefy grassy flavor hangs around for a bit.

Drink- I appreciate new beers but didnt like this. Finished it. But didnt like it.
