Hmmm... only one review of the 2017 revived hefe from the boundary waters collection. Odd. Anyway, this review is from the can. For the record, my notes from the Summit Beer Hall on its release night were better.

Cloudy, hazy amber color. Tall white, creamy-looking head leaving rings of lacing as it slowly recedes. Sweetish aroma, with spice (clove) and some banana mixed with other fruit scents. Aroma is consistent with the style, but too muted. Thick, creamy mouth feel. Initial taste of clove and banana + other fruit tastes. Very mild taste, hardly any bittering anywhere. Somewhat thick-feeling finish clinging to the mouth and tongue. Aftertaste is spicy with fruit, with only a slight banana flavor. For a hefe, the banana could stand to be more prominent and the other fruit-like flavors seem a bit not true to style. On its own merits (not rated to style), it is an enjoyable summer beer; just a mediocre hefe.

Is this different from their old hefe? It barely even tastes like a hefeweizen.
This is a poor attempt at one. So many better ones out there.

Pours light gold. Thin, foamy, short white head that fades fast.

Smells grassy, lemon, citrus, spice, banana, fruit and Doughy malt.

Tastes doughy malt, clove, citrus, grassy, apple and spice. Finish is dry with a spice and yeast Funk linger. Lighter medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

Light tasting beer
