Bottle. This is a great hefe. It was nice to look at with its cloudy yellow color and nice frothy head. The aroma was strong of banana and clove, just the way I like it to be. The flavor didn’t let me down either, excellent taste. As I continue to sample as many hefe’s as I can get my hands on, this one ranks very high on my list so far. Once again, a great hefeweizen.

Pale yellow, but an amazing hefe, nonetheless. Nose is a bit of a detractor. Dusty nose with some banana spiciness. In the end, loads of cloves and creaminess, but a bit thin on the palate. In all, a very tasty hefe.

First of all this is a really good hefe. Fruity not to much banana in it, and very sweet and refreshing. More complex than the other hefe’s that I’ve tried. Really good. Yum.

Poured a cloudy pale white yellow color. Aroma of lemon and citrus. Flavor too was off lemon with a banana finish. Sweet, lively and acidic. Pretty refreshing.

What a great summertime beer (esp) here in FL. Definite lemon on the nose with a slight hint of vanilla. A great hefeweizen-almost don’t want to add a slice of lemon to it-nice to watch the carbonation react with the acid. Vanilla on the finish. Light, golden color with a fizzing white head; little lacing. Medium bodywith a refreshing finish.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Pours light golden and slightly hazy with a big foamy white meringue head. Spicy aroma of banana, clove, light smoke and crackers. Tastes of lovely wheat, yeast and banana. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy from the wheat and yeastiness, with lively carbonation. I could drink this every day, easily one of my favorite hefeweizens.

Taster @ PIB. A wonderful yellow gold pour. A yeasty, bread dough aroma. Strong clove and banana flavors come through in this beer. A full, sweet, mouth feel follows. Not dry in the least.
