Clear blonde beer with minimal head. apricot, banana notes. A little spice on the backend. Im usually not a big hefe fan but this was solid, esp. for the money.

Trader joe’s bottle to improvised Weizen glass (pilsner). Banana yeasty sweet aroma. Cloudy light amber with foamy head. Sweet banana slight tartness. Light mouthfeel, highly carbonated. Not my usual style but definitely grew on me over the course of 10 minutes.

ByTheirLimpin (290) - New York, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Surprised by this. Cloudy orange in the glass. Nose hits the classic Heffe notes, hit a great whack of banana. Palate is a little syrupy for my preference, but at the price point, very drinkable.

OK. There’s some citrus, some yeasty-ness, a bit of minor hops. Not bad but nothing stands out. Decent beer if it’s free beer.
