Poured this into a weizen glass, and the beer makes a two finger thick white foam presentation, and the body his dark gold and cloudy.

The aroma is peppery, banana, some clove and original flavor bubble gum.

Flavor wise it is pretty much in line with the aroma, and feels light in body but with an oily slickness.

For a lower ABV'd hefeweizen, this would do just fine in Germany if only the crown of foam would retain a bit better.

Contemptible 22oz bottle into 9oz Pilsener glass. Dated 5/2/12. Poured a hazy light gold color with less than 1/2 inch of white head that had very low retention and no lacing.

The aroma had a very light wheat scent, almost benign, and just the barest hints of the expected banana and clove scents. Just kinda meh smelling. The taste was the same, just a very subdued example of what should be. Not bad, per se, just bland.

The body was light and even and meh. Drinkability was OK, but why bother? With the lack of overall presence, this is a forgettable example of the style. Maybe a budget buy for a gathering where the focus isn't on beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Little head on a honey amber color.

S: Fruity and yeasty much like a belgian style. Somewhat offputting as it smells rather musty.

T: As with the smell it drinks a lot like a belgian style. Fruity musty. Wheat comes through a little but not a key player here.

M: Sits with a medium body. good amount of carbonation.

Overall a pretty average beer. The taste is so musty I'm unsure if I will be able to finish off the bottle. We'll see. I think it was like $2 for a bomber but... even at that not sure if it's worth it.

Bottled on 5/26/12.

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1/2 inch foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, cloves, and some slight banana and bubblegum aromas. Taste is of wheat, yeast, banana, and clove/spice on the finish. There is a very mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good and easy to drink beer, especially for the $1.99 per bomber price tag it carries.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a white, finger width head which dissipates quickly, leaving behind a spotty, semi-sticky lace.

Smell - Banana and bubblegum can be found on the nose, but there's also a faint, almost medicinal quality as well.

Taste - Classic hefewiezen flavors are there, but subtle: banana, wheat, yeast, and just a touch of clove.

Mouthfeel - Light, almost watery body, but the carbonation lends itself to a nice, crisp bite.

Overall - One of the better Trader Joe's brand beers, and while it won't win any awards, at $2 a bomber it's a hell of a bargain.
