Tap. Hazy golden, yellow pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is bright banana, clove, and clean wheat malt. Taste is heavy on the banana and clove up front with slightly bitter spice toward the finish. Light, airy mouthfeel. Refreshing, well made, and true to style. Excellent!

(Draught at our hotel). Pours cloudy yellow with creamy white head. Aroma has loads of ripe banana, clove, wheat and a bit of bubblegum. Taste is semi-sweet with light bitterness. Medium bodied with thick texture. Smooth, yeasty finish. Pretty good hefeweizen!

Pale yellow cloudy body, thin white head, aroma is straight up bavarian style banana and clove, flavor is clove and mild banana flavors, palate is nice and full, some wheaty spritz, a very nice example of a bavarian style hefe, exactly what it should be

Bottle from Total Wine Huntington Beach. No clue on how long itís been sitting on those shelves, but based on the other bottles I bought probably mid-2012. Anyhoo, this pours a beautiful hazy golden amber. Not as big of a head as I like, but itís foamy and off-white. Nose is sweet and wheaty, but a bit subdued. Not the in-your-face bubblegum and banana that some hefes are. Some mineral, white grape, pear, and subtle clove spicing. Taste is the same, with the sweet fruity wheat transitioning into canned pear and lightly spicy clove. Mineral throughout. Again, not much in the way of banana or bubblegum. Big thick body with ample smooth carbonation. Solid all around, but I like a little more pungency in my hefes.

Bottle from Sproutís: Poured a bright glowing yellow liquid with some transparency around the edges of white tint. Created a thick development of foam head which quickly simmered down. Aroma is fruity with banana and peace or apricot and smells authentic to real German hefeweizen style which is surprising since this is a brand new brewing company. Although my first pour of the pint was pleasant and having a nice taste of German yeast with all the traditional flavors, the second pour was pure dead yeast and created a pungent taste of vinegar and citrus acid. Usually with hefeweizens you would want to stir up the yeast at the bottom and pour it into your glass, but with this hef I wish I hadnít. Must taste much better from the tap as opposed to the bottle. Cheap affordable price but the bottle formula needs some work.
