L: Cloudy gold, with a soapy white head and streaky lacing.

S: White bread, lightly toasted, with hints of apple and lemon, and grass and earth.

T: Lightly toasted, white bready malt, apple, pear, lemon, and hints of grass and clove on the finish.

M: Medium-light, moderate carbonation, very drinkable.

O: A crisp, refreshing thirst quencher, but not the most flavorful hefeweizen. Taste closer to something like Shock Top.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Barely cloudy gold color. Heavy bubbles.[White] Head is roughly half a finger's length off the body. Drops quick with almost zero lacing.

Smell: Light hops and a bit of banana skin, very bland scent.

Taste: Light malts and pieces of banana skin. Lightly bitter and real easy to drink.

Mouth: Medium carbonation and average stickiness.

Overall: I want to like it but it's a tough brew to judge, somewhere in the middle of like and leave alone.

The beer is a darker straw color with a haze that I can still see the fast rising carbonation through. The head was thin and reminded me like a small layer of soap. Very faint, almost no aroma, a slight wheat smell but that is about it. The beer is medium bodied and I do get a nice bubble feel off the carbonation. The beer itself tastes i get a slight spice, not overly strong or distinguishable, not your typical clove or banana flavors. Then a get a sweet wheat flavor. Overall the beer is fine but not a very good hefeweizen
