Cloudy soft yellow pour, very thin white head. Nose is hay and yest, muted. Little on the sweet side. Middle is light roasted malt, touch of banana. Finish more of the same. Just OK.

Slightly hazy straw colored, flimsy head. Aroma was hay, grain and some hoppiness. Crisp on the tongue initially, a bit grainy again yielding to a sweet finish with apple, a bit creamier in the finish which helped.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy straw with a fluffy white head. Clove and banana aroma, though weaker than the best hefes around. Taste is heavier on the banana, even weaker on the spice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a small white head that persists. Nose is a very faint aroma of esters and yeast, cloves and banana. Taste is very faint, with some yeast notes, and is similar to the nose. Watery. OK if there’s nothing better, and a definite step up from macro adjunct swill.

It has the generic taste of a Hefeweizen, but I personal feel like it is missing several key factors (like a strong yeast presence/flavor) Very little carbonation and lacing. It looks like a lager, as in it is pale yellow in color.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (thanks blutt59). Lemon, light banana, clove, wheat malt, and hay aroma. Hazy pale yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet tangy lemon, orange, light banana/clove, and wheat malt flavor. Moderate acidity and carbonation. Pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, over a slightly hazy, effervescent, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is cereal malts, light banana, minimal clove, no hops.....taste is light colored fruits (pear, apple) light citrus (lemon) hints of clove, minimal banana/bubblegum, no hops, balance to the yeast......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. While this meets the light end of the style, it is really quite low in yeast based esters and phenols. Perhaps a different yeast or fermentation temperature increase would give them a boost.
