On tap at SanTan, pours a cloudy bright golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out bananas and clove, smelling like an authentic hef. Flavour brings out lots of bananas upfront, followed by clove and dry wheaty notes. Dry finish, with lots of banana esters. Decent.

A glass full of sunrise with a decent froth on top. Initially, the aroma and flavor are characterized with citrus and wheat notes. Eventually, banana notes appear and grow prominent. Full-bodied. Solid.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Dos Gringos, 12/31/15.
Rather clear deep orange colored beer with a beige ring of bubbles that immediately dissipates.
Orange and tangerine fruitiness in the nose is rounded out by light clove and pepper. Low on the banana/bubble gum and really quite low all around on the German hefe qualities. Seems borderline American wheat-like. Malts are bready/biscuity with a touch of dry toffee and perhaps a touch of alcohol, though otherwise fairly clean.
Lightly carbonated and mostly dry, with lots of citrus, a bit of breadiness and corn sugar. Vanilla and some sharper, odd notes that I can’t put my finger on (maybe a touch of glue?). A bit of banana and mostly clove. Watery, quite drinkable. Like the Moon Juice from these guys, it’s certainly drinkable beer, but there are some elements that are a bit undesirable (texture, carbonation, aroma, overall freshness).

Jensen Beach, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz can, Slight haze, slight sparkle to the medium golden pour. Soft white head, traces of lace. Bubble gum and clove in the aroma. Coriander, banana flavoring, a touch of bubble gum in the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Not half bad.

Tap. Pours cloudy yellow, medium white head, good lacing. Aroma is definite clove, banana, lemon, yeast, wheat. Flavor is light sweet, minimal bitterness, all of the above plus a hint of bubblegum, more citric than some. Medium body.

Thanks ShoulderBroken for sharing the bottle!
Poured into a taster showing medium filtration, light honey amber and sparse white foam.
The nose shows a lot of chewing gum and very slight hints of banana. Alot of sweet malts also.
The palate is full bodied with moderate carbonation and the same flavors as shown on the nose. Pretty standard hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cannot say this is anything more than typical. Bubblegum aromas with plenty of clove and banana. Lighter body, good carbonation. Refreshing with wheat flavors, pear, and a slightly sweet finish.
