COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top-fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

This is cloudy orange with a head of fine white bubbles. It actually smells pretty nice: a touch of banana with some earthy and floral notes. It has creamy texture with vigorous carbonation. It is sweet enough that it cloys even in a small sized sample. While that does bring out the fruitiness, it gets sticky and gross pretty fast.

@bus. Pours a light yellow appearance with a wrote head. Soapy, lemon, a touch yeasty aroma. Somewhat bitter surprisingly. Twangy lemon. Dull wheat flavor. Bleh.

Bottle at Rhino’s for our hail. Lemony citrus aroma. Nice full flavor with more citrus and nice wheat. Good, maybe a little heavier than your typical German hefe.

Pours a hazy dark golden with vigorous carbonation. Big white hefeweizen style head. Clove and hop aroma. Taste is sweet pale malt, banana, clove and bread dough. Slight hop bitterness at the close. Quite good and refreshing.

While this beer has some inadequacies such as character, body and depth, it does have the basic characteristic of being very drinkable. Decent lacing but quickly dissipates to a cloudy golden liquid. Aroma does have influences of bubble gum and cloves similar to a nice German hefe. Overall an average brew, but certainly not bad.

Beerdedone (2642) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma of banana, cloves and wheat. Flavor follows the aroma with a touch of spice and had a clean finish.

pintocb (645) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Their best offering, IMO. A good take on a wheat. Definitely superior to Blue Moon, Shock Top and the like, and that’s the category I see this in. A cheap American try at a German or Belgian beer.

rangerred (928) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2014
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy dark orange with a negligible head. Really no lacing at all and no head retention. A bit of a shame considering what I was expecting for the style. Aroma is loaded with banana and bubblegum as I would expect but there is a little bit of a "wet dog" off-note. Yeastyness and a bit of grass make up the remainder. The flavor doesn’t really have anything wrong with it but it is a bit mild all-around. Good banana and yeast notes with a touch of light caramel and some hay/grass. Bitterness is very light, just enough to balance out the malt, and the finish is quite dry. Soft mouthfeel that is appropriate for the style. Overall, not a bad hefeweizen for the price but it is far from outstanding. A good thirst-quencher but not mind-blowing.
