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.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
(Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Schaumburg, IL) Draft... DLD’08... Extremely murky yellow ale with a small, white, quickly dissipating head. The nose is a typical hefe unification of fruity banana, clove and Bazooka bubblegum with just a whisper of smoke. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tangy, fruity and spicy. Fairly acidic with good bitterness. Finishes crisply.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Appearance is incredibly milky yellow. Looked way more hazy and milky than usual. Banana and cloves in the aroma. Flavor is mostly wheat, bananas, and cloves. Pretty good German Hefeweizen but the appearance was definitely off this time.

On tap at the Broomfield, CO location. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of lemons, bananas and very light spices. Tastes of cloves (stronger than the aromas), bananas, and wheat.

Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
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.

Tap. Sweet orange/banana and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with small head. Sweet banana, clove, and wheat malt flavor. Light carbonation. On the sweet side - not bad.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2007
On tap at Wheeling, IL. Poured a hazy pale golden with a dusting of white head. Nose was of candied banana sweetness with some bubble gum and grainy, yeasty notes. Flavor was quite sweet with a nice banana aspect to it.. pinch of lemon zest to finish it off was nice. Grainy, drier, and refreshing on the palate.. sweet with nice elements, but not very memorable. Decent overall.
