COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true German-style hefeweizen made with 45% malted wheat, unmalted wheat, Munich malt and 2-row barley. The yeast is a southern German style strain. The flavor profile includes clove and banana undertones. This beer is unfiltered and slightly phenolic. The hop additions are all traditional Hallertauer hops.

Good bitter and very citrus aroma. Not overbearing in terms of sweetness, a good balance with wheat flavor. Good bright orange color (hazy). A very acceptable hefe.

From a sampler at the Indy location: RAM prides itself on not serving their Hefe with a lemon. The bad news is this is not a very good beer and it might have been better with a lemon. Pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Not much lacing at all. The aroma is not bad, with some clove, citrus and banana. The taste however was kind of disturbing. It takes like Mr. Bubble to me for some reason. It was hard to detect any wheat characteristics under the odd bath soap flavor. Same goes for the finish, it pretty much ruined the beer. I'd give it another shot but this was just not right.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Cloudy golden with good lacing and no head. The nose had this cool banana smell and some citrus. In the taste there is a hint of banana but mostly yeasts. Too much yeasts in my opinion.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Schaumburg Illinois. Opaque medium golden. Excessively sweet candyish (for candy-asses) nose, very soft body, no hops within a mile-and-a-half, lemony, artificial flavor, weak, tolerable in comparison with some of the other samples.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Hazy straw tinge with light head and lacing. Aroma is delicate with lots of banana/clove esters and lots of yeast & bubblegum. Clean, watery mouthfeel and a light citrus zest bit. A session wheat for sure, must be drank delicately to really savor the flavors here.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Musky yellow-orange with a good banana aroma. Smooth banana-creme flavors. This isn't as active or carbonated as a classic hefeweizen, but this is an OK version for the suburbanites.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2003
(Draught) Pours a hazy maze color with a small white creamy head. a unique taste, not quite your traditional German-style Hefe as advertised.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2003
A very bland boring, but traditional take on the german wheat. They just really did not improve on it in anyway shape or form. Just an easy to drink hef. A little more spicy thatn I like, with lots of clove coming through, maybe if this one was a little more balanced out it would have been tastier.

Being one who enjoys wheat beer this one is excellent. Nice amber color, beautiful white head and wonderful taste. The hint of banana flavor is present.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2003
A solid traditional Hefe weizen. This beer does not have any of the banana flavors, but the characteristic clove flavor really shines in this one. A very cloudy brew that is quite refreshing.
