Bottle best before date of October ’05. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of yeast, light wheat, and if I really push some banana in the background. Tastes of wheat, light lemons, light oranges, light bananas and light spices (get the trend - everything on the lighter side).

(12 oz bottle: Belmont Station in Portland, OR) Sweet and estery nose is pleasant, but not very reminiscent of a German Hefeweizen. And, as the nose indicates, the flavor is also fairly estery, and mildly sweet. I’m picking up a lot of ripe orange fruits throughout this beer. I’m not getting the traditional banana or clove, and not really all that much wheat either, so this beer is really pretty far off the mark if this is intended to be a German Hefeweizen. Light-medium bodied, and lacking any crispness on the back end, so it just kind of sits there and gets tiring after awhile. Orange golden body is fully cloudy. The small, white head quickly settles to a film, but unfortunately, then it slowly fades to a ring. Really, just a fruity, light beer and not really something that should be labeled a hefeweizen.

Bottled. Pours a hazy nectarine color. Sweet aroma with a little bit of a yeasty smell. Sweet grainy flavor. Not quite the typical german hefe, but it is nice and refreshing for a summer’s day.

Bottle: Hazy orange hued yellow, moderate fizzy white head that falls quickly, spotty lacing, subtle carbonation.   Oat like aroma, wheat obviously, but very dull on the spices.   No real banana or clove to speak of.   Very smooth and clean wheat aspect.   Quite palatable, but a bit boring.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean crisp finish with only a smidgen of any hefe character.   Easy to put down on a hot day for sure.   Thanks Bill!

Hazy amber golden. Dusty phenolic aroma, touch of acidity. Rather yeasty, but without an overy clovey or banana notes. Medium bodied, wheaty. Trace of late sourness. Servicable.

12oz bottle, labled "Summer Weizen". hazy golden with nice sustained head. A bit sulphoric in the nose, along with banana and some slight clove, it actually smells like it hasn’t quite finished fermenting, if that is possible, reminds me of a fermenter sample during primary...very yeasty. Of course I dumped all the yeast into the hefe glass. Pretty light drinking beer, with some obvious fruitiness, some malt, and a healthy dose of yeast. Finish is yeasty again. Certainly passable. Gracias mister k...

From the bottle this pours a cloudy golden yellow with a smooth white head. Very lemon drop candy flavored hefe, with citrus and light wheat flavors. This beer goes down very smooth, with a light refreshing flavor, but lacked a lot of crispness in my opinion, more of a citrus candy hefe.

I am not sure whether this is what I had on tap or not, but it was more like water and lemon. It had a hint of citrus flavor, and really was a lot like water. I was not impressed at all. Others add a lemon to this one too, making the citrus flavor even stronger. If I wanted lemonade...
