Night Shift should stick to IPAs. This is a cloying hefeweizen. Drink Belgian ales if you want something fruity/spicy like this.

L: light haze, bright straw color with a copper tinge. Almost no head retention or lacing.

S: yeasty and banana and baking spices. Banana bread!

F: pretty flat mouthfeel, especially for a Hefeweizen. Leaves a syrupy slick on your tongue that I don’t love.

T: strong banana flavors. The bready quality in the nose disappears on the tongue, giving way to a sweet flavor reminiscent of a cherry syrup. Not getting the orange that the label says.

O: this is a less yeasty, more fruity Hefeweizen. Flavorful and agreeable enough to get this into the 4’s for me.

Dated 6/29/18 on the bottom rim of the can, 12 days since brewing.

Pours a slightly hazy orange straw in the glass with one finger of white head that disappeared in seconds. Nose of sourdough dough, coriander, clove, toasted wheat and tangy orange rind. Taste is dominated by the top three notes of sourdough, sour orange and coriander. Deep underneath those I get a hint of clove and ever so slight banana. Quite underwhelming. Body is a watery medium-light with low carbonation. No matter how much I swirled the glass, I couldn't get ANY head back after first pouring. I'm a bit at a loss for words with this one, there's just not much to talk about, it's like a light hefeweizen mixed with a really weak orange adjunct saison. With the widespread availability of things like Weihenstephaner's Hefe Weissbier, I don't see myself picking this up again.

Refreshing. Citrus. Clean. Like hoegardeen. Same after taste. Only bad thing is that it has very little head which dissipated quickly.
