COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special German wheat ale yeast produces clove and banana flavors during fermentation leaving this unfiltered beer with an incredibly spicy and fruity complexity!

this was their seasonal hefe at gettysburg... hazy brownish yellow with a white head and some spotty lacing. the dominant aroma is sweet fruit... banana and orange along with grainy/wheat. lightly sweet on the palate... flavors of banana, orange, spice and a savory note i attribute to the yeast. dry finish with lingering banana. medium to full body, soft texture and creamy mouth feel.

(abbreviated review, due to short notes) Orange overtones, light wheat and a little light banana and clove. Typical bland heffe.

Nice and light with a lot of banana flavor and a real slight haze. A nice and light summertime drink.

alexanderj (3268) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2007
On draft at the Gettysburg location a few months ago. Generally it was good, but a little thin. Flavor had a nice balance of banana/bubble gum and spice. Drinkable throughout. Good summer time beer.

opaque orange, wispy white head, drippy lace, sweet banana aroma, creamy body, lots of sweet banana flavor, only a touch of clove for balance, the sweet banana and creamy body make this a very drinkable beer

Not much evidence of wheat---fruity flavor dominates, best described as "bubble-gum-like". Appearance is proper for style, but I would expect a better head from a wheat beer. I couldn’t finish my 5 oz. sample.

I has this on tap at ABC on Cameron St. (2 days and I sound like a local-Troegs is about a five minute drive). I found it pretty refreshing with its spicy mix of focus on banana and orange flavors but it needed more carbonation and didn’t blow me away. Granted, it beats drinking most of the other selections on tap. I needed a tasty beer and this was it.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Draft at Gettysburg brewery. Typical cloudy yellow color but with really no head at all. Nose is completely sweet orange peel and melon and other fruit... sugary too. Flavor is the same, overly sweet orange peel and coriander, which is odd, lightly lactic as well, but overall it’s too sweet and too syrupy. Lacks the necessary wheat and yeast character that defines hefeweizen.

Ungstrup (28462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Draft at the Gettysburg location, July 2006. An unclear dark orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet wheaty combined with notes of oranges. The flavor has a weird metallic wheat note combined with a weird banana note, and with a metallic end. I have a hard time drinking this.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
On tap at Gettysburg location, July 2006. Cloudy orange appearance. Very clove and vanilla dominated. Sweet, soft and rather perfumed. Just a bit of a sharp tang at the end. I know this is a quite highly rated hefe, but I guess its just not my thing. Although there’s plenty of flavour I would have preferred more bite and crispness.
