AlabastorJones (813) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2009
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

Intensely hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is more lemon than banana and clove. Actually, the taste leans that way too plus a peppery finish.

True Bavarian style Hefe. Nice banana aroma and taste but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet up front with nice wheaty dry finish.

bulldogops (1680) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Rating #1576 - 21.03.2015 - On tap @ Venice Ale House - 1/5 beers served to me in 5oz samples on a skateboard..Pours a hazy, golden orange colour with a frothy, white head that fades fairly quickly to a foamy ring. Aroma is yeast, banana bread, and a floral whiff. Taste is very much a bready, banana flavour with a spicy/herbal note lingering into a smooth finish. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is clean and superb. Excellent.

Poured from the 12oz can into a Weizen glass. Golden straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is yeasty with banana and some spice. Flavor has a nice light wheat note and the typical banana and clove notes. Light to medium body with a long finish. Pretty much a classic hefeweizen - nice to see that it’s not overpowered by the banana and clove or some other fruit infusion.

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

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Decent hefeweizen. Banana and clove in aroma of a cloudy pour with big white head. Flavor of banana and clove. Finishes pretty clean with a great wheat finish.

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.

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.
