12 ounce bottle courtesy of northernbrews. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow-pale orange color with a thin fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of big banana, big clove, wheat and caramel. The taste is dry wheat, citrus, herbal hops. Medium bodied, average carbonation, fairly dry. Nice beer.

Good Hefe. Good mouth, and not too carbonated. All the right smells and tastes are there. Nothing sticks out, which is a good thing sometimes...

12oz bottled as Snow Wheat. Pours a translucent golden with minimal head. Scent is yeast, wheat, banana. Taste is similar, pretty light. As expected my least favorite from the sampler pack. Not my fave but I guess tolerable for a hefe.

12 ounce bottle poured a golden yellow color with aromas of wheat, banana, and bubble gum. Flavors are light wheat and bananas, lots of banana, nice beer overall, but not the best hefe I’ve had.

Had this as "Snow Wheat" - the winter version. Really nice Hefe with fresh bananas by the bunch. I cut my teeth on Hefe’s back in the day when I lived in Chicago and it was a bold choice versus the usual can of Old Style. Ah, the memories...

Transferring from Beer Advocate. Not the best Shorts beer. Every brewery has to have their duds I suppose.

Who likes the banana runts? This tastes just like the banana flavored runts. Not much else besides banana, sweetness, and very light spicey clove. B-A-N-A-N-A-S

One of the most non-interesting beers I’ve had from Short’s. Literally tastes like someone brew a sub par hefeweizen and watered it down. Flavors of bananas, cloves, and sulfur.
