Pretty close to German hefes. Little clove and banana, low sweetness and pretty clean. Works for California climate.

The best domestic Hefeweizen I’ve ever had! I love Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier and this beer tops that. Banana, clove, balanced sweetness, refreshing. This is an incredible Hefe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: banana and bubblegum, wheat, white pepper and cloves. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry short duration finish. (4/5)
Awww… no cool name on this one? That’s OK, Black Market, I forgive you. You make too many good beers for me not to! (And I just checked - did I really give four other Black Market beers 7.5/10? Talk about consistent...) This one comes up just a little short, though, compared to its brethren. Nice, but just a tiny bit bland. (14/20)

Can. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Wheaty and yeasty base, with faint sweetness, mild banana, some mild grainy notes, and a quick finish. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can poured. Pours a cloudy golden color with a fading head. Banana fruit aroma. Flavor is pretty typical for a German Hefe, though i have never had great success distinguishing many from others. That being said, this was pretty standard for me. Sweet fruit, wheaty background. Drinks nice. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An above average hefe. Not as complex or spicy as I like...light banana, bit of cloves, a bit of bubblegum. Pout is q bright golden straw yellow with light carbonation and a steady puffed up beige head.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Personally I think hefes shouldn’t be filtered, it not only AIDS in the appearance but also the texture across one’s palate. Pours a relatively small head atop a very clear and lightly carbonated gold body. Nose of mild banana and tonic water. Rather thin taste - some of the tropical esters make an appearance but mostly it’s standard. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some cereal grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a spicy pepper note and a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a respectable brew for the style, with good taste and well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally trying this award winning Hefe. 12oz can pours with an opaque copper to gold body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice bouquet of estery banana and spicy cloves with a dash of apple and pear fruity esters in the background. The taste begins with a brief soft palate that quickly climbs into spicy cloves and a sweet blend of banana and bubble gum. To midway a pleasing soft yeasty note is joined by thin smooth sweet apples and pears leading into a thin ribbon of cracker sort of wheated malts into the finish. Pretty solid with plenty of balance and interest.
