Moderate then aggressive pour yields 1 finger white head with poor retention for a Hefeweizen. Appearance is very clear, also not to style. But then I poured the last little bit from the can after sipping a bit from the pint glass and it got cloudier. But just hazy, like the chill haze from a mid-2000s AIPA.

Smell is all banana and clove. Delightful and spot on. Flavor is the same with a spot of delicate hopping that balances and tingles the tip of my tongue.

Overall quite tasty and enjoyable. Plenty to bring me back to this one, I would probably order a second if out at a bar. Appearance is only negative.

Look - Pale golden color, somewhat cloudy. Poured into a German weizen glass with a one finger white foam head but dissipated quickly and a pronounced lack of retention.
Aroma - Not a lot is hitting the nose. Perhaps some yeast/bread and perhaps a hint of banana.
Taste - Basically the same as the aroma, I'm detecting some yeast/bread and something else that I can't quite pinpoint.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, high on the carbonation side and finishes dry.
My thoughts overall - An Iowa take on a classic German style that is a decent drinker but fails to hit the benchmark when it comes to this style. Not a terrible beer but also not a great beer. I would revisit but it won't be a high priority
