3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Mildly hazy pale yellow color. Thin white head, leaving good thicker ridges of lace. Nice banana in the nose, light spice, good hefe yeast. Medium body, good full feel, smooth lightly creamy lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty, light spiciness to the taste. A pretty solid, tasty hefeweizen. Well-done example of the style.

Growler to glass. Cloudy golden pour. Aroma has hint of banana. Some wheats are too sweet for my taste. This one comes on right away with banana, but stops short of being too sweet. The balance holds it in check. Medium carbonation. Finishes with that same sweet lingering a bit. A good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 4-09-2011 at Bier Brewery. When poured, this draft beer has a white small head with a lengthy retention, yellow body with no carbonation observed and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is wheat malt, clove and bananas. The taste is sweet, wheat malt, bananas, and some clove. This beer’s mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy light drinking beer, but needs more flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Bloomington (IN)
An average hefeweizen by most accounts is par for the course for Bier Brewery. It won’t offend you with any glaring flaws; at the same time it lacks anything to differentiate itself from the hundreds of other similar beers in the style. I’d skip this one if you are at the tasting room unless it comes for free in a flight.
Aroma / Appearance - Semitransparent bronze liquid bubbles underneath a light white head. Honey and bananas rise lazily like a loaf of sweet banana nut bread cooling on the oven range.
Flavor / Palate - Banana nut bread, warm brownies, and chocolate chips are very sweet. This falls towards the earthy end of the spectrum and lacks a vibrant fruity kick. The nutty finish confirms the intentions by hanging around for a minute or two. It’s hard to pin down why it doesn’t work but this feels like it has room for improvement.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft to taster. Looks alright; light though, even by hefe standards. A completely transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes like a watered down hefe with a thin, average (at best) mouthfeel. One of (if not the) most unimpressive beers I’ve had from Bier.

The only Hefe I’ve found that comes anywhere close to Weihenstephaner. Lots of flavor up front, with a clean finish.
