color is hazy, light golden, head is white, thing and not really lasting. aroma has more banana than anything, also notes of wheat as well. flavor is dead on the same, but with a fair amount of hoppiness as well.

This was my first hef. a few years back and I remeber thinking it was one of the greatest things ever...of course I was drinking budweiser at the time so that would explain alot. Now that Iíve experienced a few other wheat beers this one just doesnt seem to have what Iím looking for. No banana, clove aroma or taste. Even the aftertaste is lacking the traditional characteristics. Not awful, but nothing to write home about.

Draught. Definitely an American wheat and not a
hefe. Has orange couldy appearance with nice white
head. Very drinkable, but not really special. Has good
wheat flavor and some spiciness, but lacks much in the
way of complexity. Has a soft finish.

12 oz bottle. Sorry, but Iím not getting any wheat on this. Strikes me to be one of the dime a dozen lagers that are all over the place out there (think Yeungling Lager).

Draught at some forgotten bar in New York.
Cloudy orange/yellow beer with an ok white head. Wheat, citrus and some yeast in the aroma. Light wheaty and citrusy flavor. Drinkable but forgetable!

Golden, unfiltered with a wheaty aroma. Hints of caramel with mild grapefruit flavors. Some light floral hops and some yeasty tartness, but not enough to make this anything special.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
So, cloudy yellow, bit of foam that dissappears quickly. Unfiltered.
Something in the smell is wet socks mixed with grass. Hoppy socks. Not good.
Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation, not bad.
Taste is banana, but I think slightly too bitter at the finish for the style. Good hops, but just not enough clove for my liking. So, not my pick of the litter for hefeweizen. But not ugly like the smell would have me believe. Not bad, but not my fave.

Lacks flavor. While a lemon will enhance the taste of any hefe, it is a necessity with this one. I am a big fan of hefeweizens but this one is worthless. Too cloudy even for a hefe. If you get it out of a bottle be sure to swirl and still plan on throwing away the last half inch or so in your glass. I have never seen this much yeast settle out of a hefe.
