COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An real Bavarian HefeWeizen. Made with over 50% red wheat and fermented twice using two dictinctive Bavarian Weizenbier yeasts. This is an unfiltered, lightly hopped thirst quenching summer treat with big mouthfeel, plenty of estery aromas like banana and clove and a refreshing tartness in the finish.

This looks like a hefe with that hazy funkiness. A lemon grass aroma. Light tart citrus flavor wit some pepper spice, caramel, and that lemongrass again.

I’m not a huge fan of the style but holy crap was this done right. A cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. The aroma is clove, banana, peaches, bread, and clove. Same in the flavor. A holy shit awesome session beer!

Appearance: Dispensed a clouded, dull gold body with a scant (from a rather generous pour), white head. Smell: You get your usual hefe notes: clove-scented phenols, banana mash, whole grain wheat bread, a drop of lemon. Taste: A sensible combination of particularly pale and ever tangy wheat malt. Spoonful of sweetish honey spiced with coriander and bit of ground pepper. Minor fruit traces of banana and candied lemon. Light hop character imparting an equally light touch of bitterness. The malts slide back into the foreground, now with more of a bready accent. Drying, wheaty, lightly spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. The mouthfeel, while having a nice, slight creaminess to it, could benefit from some more effervescence. Drinkability: A decent hefe, a little more crispness would’ve really given it (and me) a bit more summertime zing.

On tap from the 5 Seasons brewpub. From my notes: gold color. banana yeast, bubblegum and spice in the smell. nice balanced taste. spicy (cardamom) but good balance. quick finish.

Tap at 5 Seasons Brewing Company. Small white head with good retention, slightly hazy body, no visible carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a golden hue with some orange tint. The aroma was sweet, wheat, yeasty, clove, bananas, some tart notes, and estery. The flavor mimicked the aroma and tasted very refreshing. A smooth mouthfeel and light-medium bodied. This is a very nicely brewed beer, easy to drink and easy on the palate. Worthy of a try and if I revisit this location, I will definitely drink this if it is available.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy yellow-orange colored body. The aroma was malty and banana. The very ploesant crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and semi thiick at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and banana. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

I would have to say this is my favorite out of the everyday house beers, and generally what I drink when I am in town, not including the specialties and seasonals. Above average take on the style for a domestic craft offering and is reminiscent to me of Schneider. Initially clove and banana notes, and I make that comparison because I think the red wheat does a lot for this beer. Lots of cereal maltiness, with makes me say this would be a great breakfast beer.
