Pour is a clear and pale straw color with some small ring of white foam head. Not much lacing to speak of.
Aroma is the classic hefe: banana, clove, and spice. Taste follows, with flavors of apple juice and pear coming through as well. Thin feel but still pleasant and refreshing.

Appearance - 2.5/5
Bright, extremely clear orange. About a finger of head which dissipates quickly. Only a sparse amount of carbonation can be seen rising up the beer. The beer looks really flat

Smell - 3.5/5
Classic hefeweizen aroma. Bananas, cloves, along with some generic "beer smell"

Taste - 3/5
Tastes pretty much like the smell. The flavor is okay. It's not bad, but I've definitely had better hefeweizens. This beer is a little tasteless.

Mouthfeel - 3/5
Light to medium in body. Too lightly carbonated.

Overall - 3/5
This was an okay hefeweizen, but in the end not that great and the beer had many flaws, in my opinion.

Tasted a slight amount of funk, but this beer is mostly sweet. A little thin in body. But all in all, an enjoyable beer that is have again.

This is a great Hefe by my standards. The taste is mildly banana, minimal spice, and super smooth. Great mouth feel and ultra smooth finish also. I really enjoy this one.

12 fl. oz bottle
Served in a weizen glass

L - It is golden amber in color with a slight haze. An aggressive pour yields several inches of eggshell head that doesn't stick around long. There is a little bit of lacing.

S - I smell the traditional banana and clove.

T - The taste is traditional as well, banana and clove.

M - Medium

O - This is an average hefeweizen. Head retention was less than stellar.
