The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head. The aroma is bananas, wheat, pepper and something that smells just a little bit off. The flavor is bananas, wheat, lemon and cloves. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent beer, but it tastes about like a watered-down hefewezien, which judging by the label that calls the beer a "light hefeweizen," may have been what the brewer was going for.

Orangeish amber in color hazy with a thin head. Wheat aroma with a grapefruit flavor. Light hops this was big malt forward taste. Light summer ale taste. Not too bad

Bottle courtesy pikapp327. The appearance of this beer is rather disgusting to be honest. It is cloudy/murky golden orange with a brownish mix in the color. There is a foamy white head that dissipates quickly, but the biggest component in the appearance are the large chunks of yeast floating in it. Unfiltered for sure.

The aroma is very yeasty which is expected due to the large chunks of sediment in the pour. Spicy yeast, grains and some lemony notes as well.

Flavor is spiced lemon and coriander, with a big grain flavor mixed with bread and yeast. There is a punchy type flavor in the finish that stays with the drinker for awhile. This is odd, and almost overdone with the spicy flavors.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a decent banana and clove. Flavor is is wow super tart and sour. Finish is again sour. This had to be infected at some point but other rates seem to have gotten the same thing. Started out good but went down hill fast.

The aroma is off with corn grains and Herbs. The appearance is hazy gold. The taste is a bit like wheat with some corn. The palate is smooth. Overall not the best of the style.

BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Draught sample at Aces & Ales. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white head. Massive aroma of banana, plus a little spice lurking in the background. The flavour is more banana and a little bubble gum. Very light, but maybe focusing on lowering the calorie count also pulled some of the flavour complexity out. Refreshing above everything else.

22oz bottle 5/18/13 (Binny’s Naperville) my bottle says 5% ABV-42° in Weizen-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a big loose white head. Aroma of banana, clove, and yeast. Taste of the same with a lot of sourness. This light bodied brew is either infected or something has terribly gone wrong.

The aroma is way off with lots vegetal flavors, the taste is decent but it's kinda thin. A little worthy of drinking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
