Can, part of a 4-pack, provided by Kevin. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is banana, light clove and citrus fruits, and heavy earthy and spicy wheat malt. Flavor is lightly sweet earthy and spicy wheat malt, light banana and cloves with a slight citrus acidity and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

4 pack of pint cans packaged on 2-23-15 from Dick’s. I’m drinking the last one today. This one has the same problem the other three cans had: very low carbonation. Sadly a hefeweizen is a style that really needs active carbonation to be enjoyable. The pour is pretty lifeless with no head formation and minimal bubbles in the cloudy orange body. Aroma is solid with pleasant suggestions of orange, banana, wheat bread and tasteful, subdued clove notes. The flavor is clean too with pleasant esters and a solid wheaty body. Fresh citrus is also here. But the low carbonation is very distracting. This is tantamount to drinking a very low carbed pilsner or geuze.

16oz can poured into a tall glass. Hazy pale straw, short lived two finger head.
Big, artificial banana candy aroma, like a bag of banana laffy taffy. Clove, if there was any, was drowned out by the banana. Medium body, and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor was overly sweet, with tons of ripe, mashed banana, but not much else.

Des céréales croustillantes comme on trouve dans une Helles ou une Pilsner mais avec des soubresauts modérés de clou de girofle et de banane. Très frais et tranchant avec une buvabilité effrayante, pas la soupe repas chargée d’amidon qui caractérise souvent le style.
