(Can) This was the last of the four beers from Starr Hill that I tried, and like the others, I drank it twice before reviewing it: once from a glass, once from a can. Very aromatic, and smells just like a classic hefeweizen...there’s the distinct wheaty aroma, and strong notes of banana and clove. It was evidently so fruity, a fruit fly that was hanging out in my kitchen flew right into the glass after I poured it. When poured, head quickly dissipates, leaving a hazy orangeish-yellow cup with no visible head or even foam residue on top. Carbonation is oddly prickly, leaving sharp sensations on the palate, more like what I expect from seltzer water than beer. Pleasantly light-bodied. Little sweetness, which I like. This beer is eminently refreshing and pleasant to drink on a very hot day. The prickly carbonation is odd and atypical for this style, which I usually think of as being very smooth, but once I got used to it, it was very enjoyable. Probably my favorite beer out of the sampler. AWS9 (703) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2016
Bit flat, wheat-y but no complimentary citrus or banana, which tends to be what makes a wheat beer stand out. Disappointing... kerenmk (4751) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2016
On tap at Paramount, Birmingham, AL, 3.5.16. Clear-to-hazy blond with a white head. Faint green banana aroma along with faint plastic. Sourish taste. Banana at first and then mild bitterness with a hint of clove. Light body, soft fizz, abrupt fruity finish. commonmac (1246) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Short five ounce pour at the brewery. Very cool space. Commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche present. Light straw golden with a hazy lean. Nose has some minor banana with traditional hefe spices. Taste is pretty tame and not all that amazing. Notes of banana with a healthy dose of wheat characteristics. Bitterness is a little too heavy which holds it back from being above average. slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Better than expected fruit forward hefe with banana and light clove spice. Refreshing in the muggy weather.

A light and slightly refreshing summer time brew. Decent light gold pour w/ a white head and some lacing. The aroma contains some light spices. The taste is similar as it’s pretty clean w/ just an underlying hint at the spice. Decent mouthfeel and overall just ok. Not remarkable but drinkable nevertheless!
