3.4/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a darker than expected hazed orange color. A two finger white head forms and recedes after a minute. Not much lace to speak of either.
S: More orange and citrus rind than anything. I don't get any banana or clove that I love for the style. A bit phenolic, and even a touch sulfur like (which I do get from time to time with other examples of the style). Still, enjoyable.
T: Like the nose more orange rind and citrus, I am straining to try and get banana esters and I don't think they are there. A touch phenolic, and a touch sulfur. Again, being slightly flawed here, still something enjoyable.
M/O: A much thinner body than I was expecting, with not as smooth a finish from the wheat that I love. Thin, under carbonated a little, and muddled. OK to drink, and relatively enjoyable for what it is. Though, not really hitting any Hefewiezen sweet spots for me.

I would love to get some of the zippy wheat and banana esters Twiggy is getting. Though I get more pronounced orange rind, phenols, and a touch sulfur like than anything. While not bad, to many other better examples of the style I like to go to.

12 oz can pours a very hazed orange color with a surprisingly small head and almost no lace.

Nose is a very nice, strong banana/clove with a little bit of zippy wheat - maybe a little heavier on the banana than clove. Smells more phenolic than most American-brewed hefes and doent have that plastic-y smell sometimes afflicting the style.

Taste is a little more muddled than I would like to see with an earthy flavor that doesnt seem to fit. The yeast is there, but doesnt feel very crisp, or clean. Its not too bad, bu the nice aroma on this had me a little let down in the flavor.

Poured from can into plastic cup. In your face banana. Taste follows nose. Great beer

A bit of a disappointment - almost a characatue of a hefe - bit too much with the banana and clove.

Weak head and lacing and a tad watery. Overall taste is good. Not something I will seek out.
