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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a thick foamy off-white head and a toffee and banana aroma. There is a light-bodied wheat flavor with a hint of banana ester. Not very fruity.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is of definite banana and wet dough. Flavor is wheat malt and some more bread dough. Kinda loses the yeast aspects in the flavor. Finishes like just a plane old wheat beer rather than a hefe. Meh beer here.
