Sampler at the brewpub as ’Wine Country Wheat’. Cloudy wheat color with banana and clove aroma. Flavor is also banana with mild clove notes. Good hefeweizen, but fairly run of the mill.

On draft @ Bear Republic.
Appearance, cloudy, nice carbonation. Unfiltered hefeweizen.
Big fan of this one. Listed as "Wine Country Wheat" at Bear Republic. I don’t know if this is a different recipe than the regular hefeweizen or not, but I actually kind of love this beer.
It’s a wonderful fruity hefeweizen. Definitely some residual sugar. Reminds me of a sweeter weihenstephaner. Would definitely order this one again.

Hanging with JoeT at the brewery on Aug 9, 2011 for my birthday. I was more focused on the company than the notes, but these’ll do until I get back there this summer and do it right. Listed as Wine Country Wheat at the pub. Light haze in the pour. Nose yeasty spice and high citrus/lemon. Taste is smooth and bubblegum.
