3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. Aromas of banana and bubblegum come through clearly with a light clove note. It’s a rather sugary smell, even for a Hefeweizen. It pours a murky straw yellow, with white frothy head that reduces quickly to retain only an uneven, medium ring, with a runny, micro lace, and only a light amount sticks. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. It’s thin, but creamy, with a fuzzy, medium light body contains flavors of bubblegum, grain, and banana cream pie. It has a crisp, lemon finish with a touch of astringency in the aftertaste with a light clove, lemon, and bubblegum taste lingering. A nice, refreshing beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Blind Robin. Very light bodied for a hefe. Mealy grainy texture and fair amount of raw grain taste. Underspiced for the style. Weird tasting and not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Years back when I worked in the Loop, I used to enjoy going to The Berghoff, gobbling up their sauer bratten, potato pancakes, spaetzel, and creamed spinach while swigging down their beers, which they originally brewed themselves.
This brew has a hazy yellow body with a tall combo of a creamy/rocky head. It’s got an aroma of unripe bananas, bread dough, and a hint of clove. The flavor is more mature bananas, dough, and maybe some zest. It’s simple, but pretty refreshing

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great American version of a true hefe. On tap at Gino’s while watching brazil chile. Heavy ripe bananas and a bit of tart in the nose. Beautiful pale hazy yellow. Palate is rich thick and chewy with bananas and clove underneath.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy straw color with a decent cap of foamy white head. Aromas of bubblegum, banana, clove and sweet grains. Flavor notes include wheat malts, vanilla, bubblegum, banana, clove and light nutmeg. Average to above average body for the style. Prickly carbonation. Overall a pretty good attempt, but the flavors didn’t come together as well as some of the others I have had. Also, seemed to be missing some of the creamy texture that I enjoy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy light golden under a thin light head. Nose is very yeasty and wheaty. Flavor is like a pale lager with tons of wheat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Golden with small head. Perfectly clear, and obviously filtered. That’s a "straight-up" hefeweizen? Ok. Sweet, light banana, and mild spice. Not bad, but I suspect it would be better if it hadn’t been filtered. It’s strange to read that other people are reporting a hazy beer. Mine was definitely filtered.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Light tawny yellow brew, cloudy with a nice dense head. Aroma of light orange, clove, banana and gumball. Taste follows the aroma with a decent lingering finish. A very enjoyable hefe.
