Poured a cloudy golden yellow body with two fingers of rich fluffy white head that stuck around. Very true to form for a hefeweizen, quite nice. Scents of banana, clove and citrus zest, alongside a heavy hit of bubblegum. Overall impression of aroma is of a nice hefeweizen. Much more balanced towards banana and clove, but with a nice bubblegum presence. Very nice. Flavor begins with a hit of banana, mingling with a large amount of bubblegum, perhaps too much and a nice clove spiciness. This moves into a middle that is very bubblegum forward, with a medium high level of clove and banana to balance. Finish is lightly dry with notes of banana, bubblegum, clove and a hint of tangy wheat. Aftertaste is banana, clove, grainy malt and light bubblegum. Overall impression of taste is of a decent classic hefeweizen flavor, nice, but with a bit too much bubblegum. Mouthfeel is light bodied, almost watery, with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a classic hefeweizen. Quite nice and true to style. Overall this is a fairly good hefeweizen. It is true to Bavarian style, unlike many US hefeweizens and not bad. Just a bit too much bubblegum. Still not bad.

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

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden yellow with a surprisingly thin head of straight white foam for the style.

Floral, herbal, grass, fresh grain, and light banana yeasty aroma.

Banana, clove, flowers, grass, grainy.

Light-bodied, low-medium carbonation, soft, smooth.

Overall, a rather bland beer but definitely light and refreshing.

Pours with a deep copper color and a head that falls quickly.
Odor is sour you smell some wheat. Maybe some banana as well.
Taste is of banana and some generic sweet flavor. Wheat also comes through pretty strongly. Sour taste comes as well.
Mouth feel is clean and crisp. Carbonation is strong and you can feel it as you drink.
Although I am not a fan of hefeweizen, this one is pretty good.
