Nice hazy, pale gold beer with a white head. Light smell of bananas and yeast with a touch of clove. The flavors seem a bit muted and mostly a pleasant banana flavor with a decent amount of malty sweetness. Finishes with nice yeasty notes and a little bitterness. Nice and mellow hefeweizen that is great on a nice hot day.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours hazy straw with no head or lacing. Nose of banana, vanilla, and wheat. Taste is banana and vanilla with grassy wheat on the back end. No yeast or spice notes in the taste whatsoever. Light body and medium carbonation and with some stickiness to it.
I like hef's, but this was more fruit beer than hef. I finished it but won't be getting it again. The banana presence was impressive but little else developed beyond the banana.

Pours a very effervescent & clear gold with 3 fingers of beige head. No head retention & minimal lacing & little chill haze

S: Breadyness, cloves

T: Follows the nose, some pear & white grape, plus band-aids up front. Cloves, white grapes, a little lemon & pear as this warms. Finishes fruity with a little clove

MF: Light/medium body, subtle carbonation

Drinks very easy, could use a little more depth of flavor, but I would buy this again

12 ounce can into weizen glass, canned on 721/2015. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness, yeast spiciness, and wheat tang on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth and creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a great hefeweizen. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a hazy light Amber color. Aroma reminds me of banana nut crunch cereal. Flavor is similar to the nose with a semi sweet malty finish. Drinks pretty smooth and overall this is solid but nothing special. If the flavor didn't remind me of breakfast as a kid I probably wouldn't like this very much.
