Bottle: Light ’cheap’ hefeweizen. This this even a style? Watery, plain, simple. Waste of malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draught in Las Vegas. Hazy golden colour and a taste dominated by cloves and banana. Quite refreshing, but not especially characterful. Not bad - quite German-tasting, actually.

Tasted from draft. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with white head. Aroma is citrus, floral, banana. Taste is a little banana and floral notes. A little skunkiness. Crisp and light on the palate. Not my favorite Hefeweizen by any means.

"i bought this for sh-ts and giggles. JJames beers, new to Reno in 2009, all pretty much sucked when the distributor gave us a sample. this is the first new one i’ve seen. though i expected little, i was open to the possibility that it could be good...you just never know. that optimism evaporated when i popped the top, though. the aroma was a little bubblegummy and a touch of clove, but like some of the others, was generic, kit-like, and had a little extra something that was "off". i had to pour vigorously to get any head, which ended up thin white soda like. cloudy yellow with floaties due to the pour. how does it have prickly carbonation yet taste flat and have practically no head? flavor is the strong point and would have potential if they didn’t make this a "lite". still generic, kit-like, but refreshing enough to make it good enough to avoid the drain."

Bottle @ home via trade. I can’t remember who sent this to me, but thanks ! Pours a hazy, light yellow appearance with a thin off white head. Aroma is pretty mild- some candy / cotton candy / bubblegum notes. A little bit of citrus. Nothing overwhelming in the smell. Kind of tart and spritzy flavor. Some hay / straw / herbal notes. Kind of juicy. A touch of veggie. A little dull. Kind of strange but not overly bad.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22floz/650ml bottle into a weizen glass; served cold.
Aroma: Lots of yeast. A little spice.
Appearance: Super hazy yellow-orange body with a moderate, but dissipating, white head.
Taste: Wow! Lots of flavor in this one. Lots of cloves. There’s definitely some banana too, and a little tartness to round it out. So much flavor!!
Palate: Light-medium body, short finish that ends on spice.
Overall: Such a fantastic hefe. It is bursting at the seams with wonderful flavors.
