Can thanks to Aaron. Hazed pale golden pour with a white head. Nice banana and clove aromas. A touch of yeast, nice bready malt, some orange, and perhaps coriander. There’s a light tartness to the flavor along with sweet bread and banana. Clove spiciness, hints of coriander, some yeast, and orange peel.

Weisse type glass draft pour at the Rackhouse Pub in Denver, Colorado. The pour is a cloudy yellow orange, with a well formed one inch white head. The tastes is nicely fresh wheat grain and orange citrus, along with a subdued clove yeast. The palate presents an almost flat mouth feel, which takes away some of the effectiveness if the beer. Nice enough Hefe.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice yeasty, banana aroma with a hint of wheat. Pours a slightly murky straw yellow with very little head. A prominent banana tastes permeates the brew with a subtle wheat sweetness that is light in body and finish. The lower carbonation really allows the banana and wheat notes to shine. Overall, quite good.

12 oz can pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Bananas, bananas, and bananas, with some light yeasty sourness coming through. But dominated by isoamyl. Light, packed with flavor, and very nice. With the added benefit of being packaged in a can.

Pours a cloudy yellow orange with about a half a finger of stark white light head. Straw in the odor with just a hint of banana sweetness. Surprisingly nice mouth feel, with a nice soft banana sweetness that lingers into a surprisingly subtle hop bitter aftertaste. Not a big hefweizen fan myself, but this is pretty good
