look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Brewed on date of July 25, 2013 so about 5 months old.
Pours cloudy yellow with two fingers of white that recedes fast.
Smell is wheat malts a bit of clove and banana.
Taste is slightly sweet bready clove and banana. A few other spices maybe some from the hops.
Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is just right. Finish light and slightly dry.
Overall a tasty brew I will have again after checking the bottling date.

look is a orange golden color, with a small froth that stays and laces. the smell is light wheaty, sweet, with some spices. the taste is creamy, wheaty, and sweet. there is an aftertaste of lemon, bubblegum, spice. feel is medium but full

will definitely peep this one in the future. cheap but decent.

Got this from Trader Joe's, served in a weizen glass.

A: Pours a crisp, clear gold-orange color with a short off white head and no lacing.

S: Can anticipate sweetness, smells of grains, wheat, malts, yeast

T: Light, sweet flavor to it, tastes of grass, grains, wheat, honey, malts, yeast

M: Medium bodied with ample amounts of carbonation, well balanced

O: The bang for the buck is here, although not spectacular this beer is pretty good but for it's prices, it's near excellency, recommended by me.

Poured from a 22-ounce bottle into a Weizen glass.
Pours a golden color with good deal of haze, one-finger of head and no lacing. The smell is mostly sweet and seems malty. The banana and clove aromas are initially undetectable, but then the banana emerges as the beer gets warmer.

Unfortunately, the banana aromas don't transfer over to the beer as the banana and clove are difficult to detect. A heavy carbonation overpowers the drink and leaves little room for other flavors to emerge.

Overall, not a beer I'd drink again, although I've really enjoyed other beers from the Steinhaus Brewing (aka Firestone Walker).

I should preface this by saying that I don't care for most Heffs. I have come to trust my gut instinct when it comes to picking beer at random though, and this bottle jumped out at me from the shelf at Trader Joe's, so I figured what the hell, if it sucks, I only have to drink 650ml of it. I was blown away by how smooth the taste and mouth feel was. For me, it had very little nose and I didn't get the banana-like aftertaste that some of the other reviewers mentioned, but it is allergy season, so it might have dulled my pallet. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor of the beer however and it was surprisingly light and refreshing dispute the density and haze. It's a low ABV so it makes for a good session beer.
