Solid hefe. Surprised by the low ratings here -- I’m not sure what people are expecting? I wouldn’t mind a bit more banana notes in the flavor, but this one is quite good.

Pours a very hazy dark yeloow golden color with a small white head. Nose is mainly orange and some lemon with some wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Long wheat finish good carbonation. Refreshing but not spectacular. Pretty standard hefe all around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow/gold with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are very mild; light wheat malts, light yeast, a hint of banana, very mild citrus, light body. This is not much different than most light beers. Pass.

Very anonymous wheat ale with the citric notes being too dominating for my taste. Herbal, citric and floral with a weak palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was actually poured into a pint glass several times but had it in a weizen glass for reviewing purposes and obviously for style purposes, the head did last longer which is good to Pyramid.
The appearance was a nice filtered looking yellow to orange color with the typical creamy white foamy two finger-ed head. The lacing is thick and foamy gracing the sides of the glass.
The smell had a good amount of banana with a delicate amount of cloves backing that up.
The taste was sweet and spicy through the previously mentioned flavors. There was a long lasting sweet banana flavoring in the aftertaste which lead to a long dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium on the body with a good carbonation running about my mouth and tongue.
Overall, this fits the bill as a hefeweizen in my opinion and is quite a lovely brew to have this time of year.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass.
Appearance: pours a 1" head that quickly recedes with some lacing. Color is a quite cloudy orange-yellow.
Aroma: wheat dominates the aroma with some citrus hops and yeasty bread in the background.
Mouthfeel: light and watery, a little slick with a drying finish.
Flavor: Caramel barley malt is more prevalent in the taste than the aroma as it balances with the wheat. A hint of banana as well. Citrus rind hops are noticeable but not overpowering in the finish.
Overall: a pleasant wheat beer and appropriate to the style.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The "barely" beer - barely any head, smell or flavor. Only redeeming quality (barely) was the lacing.
