From the bottom of the can: "CANNED ON 04/11/17"

Appearance: Not much of a head; it pops up momentarily and instantly goes away to a flat surface which is very uncharacteristic for a Hefeweizen. The body is hazy and medium gold colored.

Aroma: I get a very light and dull wheat aroma. There is a light bit of a wet cardboard smell, some light alcohol, and some clove.

Taste: Up front there is a light bit of wheat flavor with a very light touch of banana. In the middle there is a bit of herbal hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: It has a nice chewy mouthfeel. Decent carbonation.

Overall: This Hefeweizen leaves much to be desired. It isn't a beer that I would pick up again and it really isn't one that I would recommend. If you do try it I would recommend getting it straight from the brewery because it isn't very good in a can.

A good light summer beer when you get sick of the other wheat beers on the market, more flavorful than shock top, more tangy than blue moon

Poured a cloudy yellow gold with decent head and lace retention. Aroma is alright for style with hints of citric, spicy pepper and clove as well as touches of yeast/wheat twang. Beer is smooth and fuller-bodied thanks to yeast, has a touch of sweetness, but the sharp citric flavors associated with style, as well complex sweetness and other fruit flavors are missing. Slightly watery and easy to drink, in my opinion this is a decent beer but just has too little going on to really seek out if your a hefe fan.

Draft at The Hilton in Norfolk, VA.

Hazy yellow body with an inch of white head. Aromas of raw, cracked grains. Mashed banana, clove. Grainy with mild sweetness. Just a bit off. Lacks the amazing drinkability I associate with a great hefeweizen.
