I remember someone telling me that this was just an unfiltered version of the Wheaten Ale. That cannot be true, since that beer is quite good and this one is quite lifeless.

Hazy yellow color, small white head, lace. Light banana aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Overriped banana, light citrus ... semi-sweet flavor. Quite classic style hefeweizen. Much better than top raters’ old ratings indicated.

pours with a healthy light-tan head above the traditional cloudy golden/orange body. Aroma is mildly sweet wheat, spicy (clove), and light citrus. Taste is watery lemon, hint of yeast. Where's the banana?!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is bready/biscuity with a suspicion of lemon. Hazy orangy gold color with a white head that just filmed. Medium bodied. Definite wheat malt. Some light lemon. The banana is truly hard to find. There’s a bit of citrus sour, and the finish has enough bitter to salvage the product. A big Bavarian banane it’s not. An American wheat it is.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a finger’s worth of white head.
S: The nose is quite mild and unimpressive, but doesn’t possess the usual sour wheat notes of beers of this style. A bit of citrusy hops and bready malt, but that is about it.
T: A soft sweetness from the wheat and malts, and a bit of yeastiness (which doesn’t surprise me given the amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle). A light citrus and grass hop flavor and very soft bitterness.
M: Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation.
D: Not a bad beer, but somewhat one note and bland. It was good for the occasion where it was being served (a wedding), but not something I would go out and pick up.
