This thing was banana cream pie to me. Fluffy carb. Really tasty, though the sweetness may not be for some, nor allow for extended drinking, but on a warm, Southern California day, it worked just dandy for me.

On tap:

The beer had a very nice hazy light orange color with a nice foamy head, which was not well retained, but left some decent lacing. The beer gave off a nice, robust wheat aroma. The beer had a very good taste to it, solid wheat and perhaps some spices. The beer had a nice light feel to it, as expected from the style, and the beer was easy to drink. Overall, a solid beer and one of the better U.S.-based brewer Hefes that I have tried. Would drink this beer again.
