COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true summer delight. Very light and crisp, this wheat beer has a cloudy appearance due to yeast still in suspension. The Weinstephan Yeast, a particular strain used for this style only, is the source of the unique banana and clove like flavors. The name of this style comes from the German "Hefe" meaning yeast and "Weiss" meaning wheat. Often served with a lemon.

Pours a gold-ish orange. Very faint aroma of wheat and orange. A very light beer with light flavors of orange, lemon and very little weak. Fairly bland beer.

A cloudy orange our with creamy white head and lace. Corrinader on the nose and the flavor. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. If I could only drink one beer here this might be it.

Draught at the pub. Murkey golden creamy just off white head. Nice lacing. Citrusy tart aroma and flavor. Palate is light with a strong banana and bubblegum. Sweet aftertaste. Medium body a touch creamy with a little carb bite. Solid, a little lacking in rich wheat flavor.

Pretty decent hefe. Had mine out of a growler that sat in my fridge a couple of weeks, so maybe my rating is skewed southward a little too much. Im sure its better straight off the tap. Either way, you can’t really go wrong here, just seems like nothing special. Still poured a nice 1 inch head after all that time in my fridge!

Good for a Hefeweizen... Smell of wheat, yeast and lemon. Looked unflitered, very cloudy with a small white head. Smooth texture. I’m not a hefeweizen guy but I could knock a few of these back now and again.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Sampler at the brewpub (no lemon). Nice looking unfiltered cloudy yellow/orange with a wheaty and banana aroma. Clean flavors of wheat and banana yeast, with a slight lemony note. Smooth medium body. Not bad.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2006
on tap-pours a creamy white head that reduces and laces with cloudy straw color. Aroma is creamy, wheat, clove, faint banana. Taste is spicing-clove and banana, wheat, creamy. Dry, spicing finish.

Decent, a tad thin maybe but refreshing. There are many better and many worse.

6.25.05 Garden State Craft Brewer’s Guild Festival. whew. This was an ok hefeweizen but not at all good compared to some of the heavyweights of hefeweizen (hefeweights?) It was almost too much about the clove/banana flavors. Like some ill-begotten bubblegum flavor concotion from the late 1980’s.
