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.

Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a rather cloudy golden color. Nose has loads of citrus in there, as well as quite a bit of wheat and clove to it. Taste has a little banana in there, as well as just a bit of wheat. Meh.

OldMrCrow (1906) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Tap at the Ram in Seattle.

Pours a light cloudy brown-yellow. The aroma is a typical banana and bubblegum aroma, but slightly syrupy and rather caricatured. The flavor is actually somewhat sour and rancid relative to the target, making it thoroughly unenjoyable. Mouthfeel is thin. Another disappointment on the night.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured the expected hazy gold color with an average white head. Bitter, medicinal aroma cut in the way of spicy clove and some sweetness. The flavor had a weird, dry minty, medicinal flavor that reminded me of Rolaids. The mouthfeel was fine. Not good.

tap, thick bodied dark yellow with no head, (not a classic wheat cloudy appearance), almost no aroma with faint sweet malt notes, no hops on nose, taste the same, no hops noted, no real banana or clove, easy drinkin, but nothing special

Pours a cloudy yellow with no carbonation and minimal head. Orange peel aroma and strong orange taste on top of wheat malt. Slight medicine taste and aftertaste on a medium body.

Draft at Humperdinks in Arlington. Cloudy orange. Aroma of intense and massive (?artificial) bubblegum. Taste is strangely bitter and sour. Unpleasant.

Dogbrick (8507) - 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.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Pours a hazy light yellow with little head. Aroma is the traditional hefeweizen yeast banana and clove character. Taste is wheat, clove, banana, and spices. Not the most flavorful hefe, but it’s ok.

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.

On tap in Arlington. Strong banana aroma and flavor, has a nice tingle at the end.
