12oz canned 5/8/18 (63 days ago) poured into an bow tie glass at fridge temp 5.1% ABV per can label. The beer pours almost bright straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves no lacing. The aroma is very light clove followed by banana. The taste is semisweet banana first with clove coming in behind. No hint of hop bitterness or flavor. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, adequately carbonated and undry in the finish. Overall, ok. It actually suits me as I am not a huge fan of pronounced banana in these beers. My wife loves it. The bubblegum notes come out as it warms.

Served from 12 oz can into a small weizen glass at Swig and Swine BBQ restaurant in West Ashley SC. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a very small white head and minimal lacing (frosted glass). Aroma and flavor include plenty of yeast and wheat bitterness. Some spicing, cloves and a little banana but it is more Witbier than Hefe. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Probably a better choice for a summer day outdoors than with a heavy BBQ dinner, but I still enjoyed it. The flavor held up fine.

I'm not a wheat fan but I picked up a sixer for a day on Sullivan's Island and it went very well with a hot day and a lazy surf. Not a ton of yeasty Flavors like clove or peppercorn but more a bubblegum and wheat malt. Very light feel but not watery, I drank through all six with very little damage and a good time.

I love this beer. The texture is smooth with a frothy creaminess. What a wheat beer should be.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale egg yolk-colored body with an inch of airy foam. It's a nice lookin' wheat.

Smell: Cereal sweet tinged wheat with a very scant toastiness. Light lemon, 'nana. Touches of clove and a faint kiss of herb.

Taste: Wheat malt, just a bit bready and a little bit of crisp toastiness. Medium-low sweetness. Soft lemon, banana and clove converge at the mid-point. Very low hop character, bitterness. The flavors just sort of drift away as you head towards the finish with a final lil' zip of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel.

Overall: It's a decent enough wheat.
