This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a hazy/cloudy burnt orange color with a sustaining white foamy head for a good minute. Then dissipates at a nice pace. Lacing slides into the beer. The aroma starts off with some sweet bready wheatiness. Cloves and banana esters are there, but because of the green bottle, yes, mild skunkiness starting to show up. The flavor leans sweet first but ends up balancing between the sweetness and spicy clove. Dry clove spice to super mild banana esters aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable smooth sweet crisp feel. Carbonation seems pretty light. Overall, getting this done before it becomes a skunk bomb. Damn, I hate green bottles! Why, ugh, please stop, this is 2016. Science has disproved that these bottles should no longer be used.

Backlog. On tap. Smells and tastes of wheat, banana esters. Pours a beautiful hazy gold. Nice head, leaves nice lacing. Great hefe.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, straw color with two-finger, white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: sweet honey, bread and banana, there is a slight musty, euro skunk smell.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet honey and bread then banana.

PALATE: medium body and velvety smooth.

OVERALL: this is a superior Hefe Weizen, I would buy this again no problem and would recommend to anyone who enjoys this style as much as I do.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a golden yellow with very little transparency. Good carbonation - about an inch of head. Smell is really nice - orange peel, sweet, refreshing, earthy. Taste isn't as nice as the nose - flavors a bit muted. I was expecting more after the nice nose. Taste is orange peel, wheat, a bit bready, lemon. Not bitter. Mouthfeel is good. Overall, nice reflection of the style. Not my favorite, but really good.

12 ounce bottle poured into a glass

A: Pours a dark straw color with a bright white full creamy head, lots of head retention and carbonation, beer is cloudy.

A: Lots of aromas, banana, spice, light clove, lots of sweet malts, smells very good.

T: The aroma did not transfer to the taste, same notes of banana, light spice and clove, lots of yeast and malt, picking up a little off flavor like a children's vitamin, aftertaste has banana and a light spice note.

M: Light bodied with lots of carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel, very light on the palate, easy to drink.

O: Besides the slight off flavor that I picked up, this is a refreshing easy to drink beer, there's no bottle date that is easily identifiable but I'd picked this up again if I knew how fresh it is.
