COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Hefeweizen is light bodied, gold and cloudy in appearance, with banana and clove in the nose. A clean citrus finish makes this the perfect spring/summer time beer.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Yellow-ish, amber-ish, and of course, ever-cloudy with that signature hefe yeast haze; the chalk-white head isn’t as billowy as it should be for the style. Aroma is like a fairly standard, muted hefeweizen; notes of clove and banana being the strongest, with some citrus zest and bread in the back. Kind of weak, not necessarily bad, though. Taste is similarly weak, a little watery and not a good mouth feel for the style. Some overripe banana hints, clove, light taffy. Very small touch of finishing citrus zest, and maybe even some toasted bready malt. The yeast isn’t as powerful/potent here as I like in my hefes. Painfully average, lacking for a hefeweizen.

Bottle. Clean, golden color with a fizzy white head. Banana, bubblegum and sour yeast aroma. Big initial dose of wheat, with mellow tones of cloves and fruit in the finish. Very light bodied but the over carbonation takes away from some of the flavor.. Quite refreshing, but a little bland compared to some of the other options.

On tap at the brewpub. Sort of bland heavily carbonated. Bitter but lacking spice or fruitiness to make it interesting. Very average.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured an ever so slightly turbid dulled copper color, white ring for a head, aroma of clove, yeast, and hard water. Hits the mouth with a low medium body, malt is kind of in the back seat, hard clove in the middle, finish is somewhat lacking. Hmmm...
