From bottle. Hazy golden orange color. Aroma of malt, clove, and banana. Good German hefeweissen flavor of banana bread and a hint of bubblegum. Smooth finish. Fairly surprised by this.

Bottle from T Joes - pours cloudy golden. Nose of yeast, banana, and citrus. Taste of banana and clove. Not bad for the price of this beer!

Bomber at Trader Joe’s. Hazy gold pour with a medium white foamy head aroma is lemony, earthy hay, sweet banana. Flavor is muted spice and fruitiness. Little bit of bubblegum in the finish. Cheap and inoffensive. Good on a hot day after yard work!

Draft at Fermentation. Cloudy golden pour with fluffy white head. Very estery aroma, freshly peeled bananas, hints of spicy and starchy wheat sweetness. Chewy palate with yeasty driven flavors with other hiding out in the background. Not bad, one of the most yeast dominate Hefes I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a pilsener. Pretty standard hefe aromas of banana, wheat and a touch of spice. Gorgeous cloudy orange color, but the head is gone almost instantly. Bright flavors of bready malts, tangerine and spice. Finishes with only a slightly sweet flavor. This is a solid hefeweisen and a great value.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml, bottled 01/25/13. Foggy, golden pear color with a lasting disc of bubbles on top. Aroma of spicy banana, fresh green grass, caramel and a hint of evergreen resin. Flavor is ripe banana, citrus, a hint of clove, wheat, and a tart finish of citrus zest, dry grass and resin. Too-light body is well balanced and has medium-high carbonation. Pretty good and much closer to a German Hefe than most American crap imitators that don’t even use the right yeast.

The body was light and even and meh. Drinkability was OK, but why bother? With the lack of overall presence, this is a forgettable example of the style. Maybe a budget buy for a gathering where the focus isn’t on beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Long Island, NY - 20 oz. poured a wheaty hazy color with cloudy white head. Aroma was classic hefeweizen with some ketonic hints. Taste was initially quite good but it's a thin beer, no mouth feel. After taste is very ethanol heavy. Run of the mill hefe

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: cloudy orange pour with small white head. Aroma has notes of sweet banana, bubble gum, and yeast. Flavor is over-ripe banana with caramel, a yeasty bitter, a peppery spice, and a touch of tart citrus. Palate is mostly sweet but has minor bitterness and tartness and a big carbonation tingle. Interesting flavors, thou a bit jumbled, and easy drinking overall; it was worth the two bucks.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a slightly hazy, light golden color with a decent sized head that quickly dissipates. Slight aroma of banana bread. Yeastiness comes through more so on the tongue. Slight banana aftertaste. Pretty light and easy to drink. Not a great hefeweizen.
