No reviews? No ratings? Added by who? And that pic? Welcome to The CANQuest (TM), the unending madness where CANs are king!

From the CAN: "Under dim rotating lights, a wallflower stands. Vivid fantasies of soft spicy-banana aromas, pinching into a lemonlike hop drag but tempted with a lustful vision of a modest body wrapped up in the most delicate sweetness, the wallflower remains. Appropriately bitter, and never long lasting, with an impeccable balance, the wallflower pleads. Take a chance on me. Wallflower. Please drive me home."

Beer Penthouse Letters?!? The Crack! almost made me blush, but I turned things upside down and went with an inverted Glug. This netted me a finger of dense, eggshell-white head with modest retention. Color was a cloudy lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose smelled heavily of bananas. Spicy? Not o much. Mouthfeel was downright soft, caressing my poor, bruised tongue in earnest sympathy. Man, the taste was really light! It had so little flavor that I wondered what happened. I have had equally bland wheat beers, but it was my understanding that this was to have been a hefeweizen , in which case this really needs work. Even the finish was bland and nonexistent. C'mon, boys, you CAN do better!

Thanks to the previous reviewer, the legendary woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of banana, some wheat. Taste is mild, some banana, light wheat, kind of mild for the style. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and decent beer, but nothing special.

12 oz. can poured into Weizen glass.

A- Hazy yellow, white highlight. Almost looks like a Wit. Head is light and pours big, but falls very quickly. Quite effervescent.

S- Citrus, lemon. Almost a lacto/Berliner aroma. I wasn't expecting this smell.

T- Very light, slight banana. Almost a Belgian spice. Totally not a Weizen taste.

M- A little bubbly, light and wet. About the only attribute matching the Weizen style.

O- This isn't a Weizen.
