A: Translucent orange/yellow, didn't retain it's head for very long due to low carbonation. Not as cloudy as some other hefeweizens.

S: The familiar smell of malted wheat, with hints of citrus and banana.

T: Same as the smell, with the familiar taste of cloves in the background that followed the fading taste of malted wheat. Very mildly sour.

M: Light but crisp carbonation, moderate body. The malted wheat lingered on the roof of my mouth and center of my tongue, with the acidity and hints of banana/cloves becoming more pronounced on the edges of my tongue.

D: Could probably go through a couple of these at a time, but I would probably do so deliberately.

Decent buy at Trader Joes for $2.49 per bomber. The value point allows me to see myself buying it again. It didn't blow me away, but it delivered everything I've come to expect out of this style.

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with some notes of banana esters from the yeast.
T: Similar to the smell, the overall taste is mostly dominated by flavors of wheat and also has notes of bananas. I couldn't detect any other flavors such as cloves.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have much in the way of complexity when it comes to aromas or flavors, but it's easy to drink and would make for a nice selection on a hot summer day when you're not looking for something overly fancy.
