COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
EOS, the Goddess of the Dawn, is fitting for the golden aspects of the color and striking aromatics this unfiltered Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen beer delivers.
Medium body and a huge banana-like aroma creates a wonderful drinkability unlike many others.
Immensely pleasurable.

This shit is OK. It has a nice banana fermentation character but, like a lot of American hefeweizens, it is too damn sweet. It’s cloudy w/ a fairly small head for the style. The sweetness is cut somewhat by fairly vigorous carbonation but this still comes off just a touch heavy. This is a near miss, I’d say. You have a nice tasting beverage but the texture really just isn’t right for any style. A good hefe is creamy yet still light and this is neither.

355ml can. seems to be highly awarded. Hazed gold pour, a hefeweizen in a can already draws some questions as it is less user friendly than a bottle for knowing when you get all the dregs in fact there are no dregs at all. The aroma is fine, banana, spice, and wheat. Certainly not quintessential. Flavor is decent, a bit sweet and stiky for a hefeweizen, has a sweet banana flavor. Not terrible but certainly not a stalwart in the style.

drdisque (632) - Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2015
From a 12 oz can poured in a shaker. Pours only slightly cloudy gold. Bright and somewhat dry for a wheat beer. Not much depth of flavor. Not sweet enough and not much fresh grain flavor coming through. I don’t think this is an old can. Mediocre attempt at a Hefeweizen. Not awful, just bland.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with an enormous soapy-creamy orange-white head that lingered And left decent lacing. The aroma was wheaty with hints of banana, clove, bread, boney, a tangy middle and some phenol. The flavor was bread, wheat, pepper, clove, phenol and bubblegum. Long bubblegum and bread finish. Medium body. Decent.

BeerBunker (930) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2015
12oz can. Pours a hazy yellow with a big, frothy white head. Aroma smells like a bunch of ripe bananas. Lots of banana. There is also wheat and spice. Taste is huge on the banana. Underneath all the banana, there is also wheat and spice. Lingering spicy taste. Doesn’t taste as good as it smells, that’s for sure. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and almost soapy. Not much of a finish. Not a bad beer, it just smells better than it tastes. Disappointing.
