On tap Bj’s South Bay. Hazy gold with little head. Taste of Bavarian yeast, clove and spice with little or no notes of banana and bubblegum. Not my favorite Hef but not bad.

Cloudy golden pour, thin white head with little to no lacing. Aroma is banana, and yeast. The taste is dominated by fresh banana, cloves, and some bubblegum. Tangy citrus on the finish. Not bad but has a somewhat fake taste to it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big fruity fresh banana nose portends the equally banana-forward wheat malty body of BJís here. Excellent hefe here modelling the classic flavor components of the style. Pours lightly hazy amber. Served a bit on the cold side but I ainít complaining. This is a great hot weather quencher.

Sampled on draft at the Frederick MD location this beer poured a hazy dark golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was phenol, citrus and yeasty. The flavor was sweet and bready with notes of citrus, phenol and honey. Medium length sweet honey finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

A watered down version an otherwise average Hefe. I could drink this by the bucket full mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow gold - looks like the Blonde and Light, really - with a small white head that settles into a lasting ring and film with some trailing lace. Everything is light here - banana, clove, hay, wheat, and white peach. Light-bodied, with a dry, estery mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Easy enough to drink, but toward the weaker side of the hefe spectrum.
