As one who has had many Hefeweizens, this isn't bad.
It carries many of the common characteristics in the German wheat style.

Poured into a beer mug, had about 2 1/2 fingers head. Average lacing.

Very fruity, orange, apple, maybe slight clove.
I read elsewhere that ABV is 5.5% which is moderately noticeable.
High carbonation and adequate mouthfeel.

Again, it's not bad, it came in the River Horse variety pack, I'd recommend it to Hefeweizen fans but I'm a more hoppy guy so it wasn't one I'd run back to.

appearance... hazy, orangey amber

smell - fruit, 2.5 can't distinguish much else... c'mon huh...

taste - light, watery - fizzy upfront... 3

i think River horse can do better... maybe it's the Delaware River... or maybe it's just new jersey... step it up .

Poured into a pint glass. Murky brown/orange in color -- looks tasty! Good, big head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind nice lacing.

Smell is big in the yeast and citrus. Total orange.

Taste is mega-fruity. Apple, orange and banana come through and make the beer a juice-like endeavor. Overall, an interesting beer. A bit too sweet more my tastes, but a nice flavor profile here.

Watch out for particles!
