3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can to pint. Looks like a good hefeweizen; a hazy yellow with nice carbonation and thin lacing. Smells decent, but pretty mild. Tastes of banana and clove; not much zip for a hefe. Average mouthfeel (at best). Probably a one-timer for me.

Great hefe. I’m not sure why hefe’s don’t do better on here. I guess I’d a beer doesn’t beat the shit out of you it isn’t very good. Anyhoo.....hazy bronze color. Nice banana notes in the nose. The flavor is effervescent and marshmallow-y. Great for summer.....especially Ina a can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Has a little more body and sweetness, touch of banana than your more mass distributed versions of this style. Aroma is a little lemony and a little grassy. Finish comes in a little peppery and herbal.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a pale golden body, quite hazed, with a smallish, white, though never-ending head. After knocking out a few handwritten notes, then, firing up the laptop and connecting to the pesky WiFi here, it is still there, the head. After a round of asinine texts from my ex-fiancee, it’s still there, still going strong (presumably all day long).
Smell: No-doubt-about-it malted wheat, with supporting, expected notes of bananas, cloves, and lemon chiffon pie filling.
Taste: Staunchly wheaty, with a big kick of twangy wheat and sweetness akin to whipped cream sweetened with powdered sugar. Banana puree cut with whole milk and spiced lightly with a bit of ground clove. Touch of lemon akin to a taste of Lemonheads before you hit the sour core. Light hop character, lightly bitter. The cream and 10x powdered sugar come back before the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Creamyish mouthfeel throughout.
Overall: Seriously, like a hour later, the head has not diminished in size. Large on the wheat character, but a very promising hefe.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow color with minimal lacing. Musky nose with hints of coriander and lemon. Crisp palate up front with a mellow and smooth finish. Ideal beer for summer consumption and use of a can only makes it more appealing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From can into Boston Lager glass. Decent pour; cloudy orange yellow with thin, but persistent, white head. Very candy-like banana-bubblegum aroma; lacks some depth/subtlety. Flavor a bit sweet, body a bit thin. Fine attempt at the style, but it’s hard to beat the German masters.

Can: The aroma consists of lemon, banana, apple, faint clove, and a touch of sulfur. It pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light lemon and banana. The finish has light apple and a hint of sulfur.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished quickly, down to a very thin layer and a small collar of residue producing some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a straw malt and a sweaty yeasty with notes of banana, citrus (lemon and maybe a little orange) and a hint of clove.
The taste was mildly sweet with a strong wheat presence from the beginning and then progressed with a big note of citrus and a mild hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time and was refreshingly citrusy.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a mild creamy watery texture and had a good strong carbonation.
Overall this brew is a very light Hefeweizen that has a nice low ABV. I found it to be a very refreshing brew, which would be great for those days hanging out on the boat on a hot summer’s day...
