after4ever (7479) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2010
draft at the brewery. pours a deeply cloudy bright gold with a slim white rim and some loose white lacing. delectable hef nose, plenty of banana and some light cloves mixed in with some faint bready undertones. creamy medium body with soft carb...would be nice to feel some more tight bubbles and even a little bit of graininess. pleasant and refreshing banana, cream, clove, and brown bread mid palate, with a long banana finish. goodie.

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2009
On tap at the brewery taproom. Nice aroma of citrus, wheat notes, light banana and clove as well. Pours hazy orange yellow with a nice big head in a weizen glass. Flavor is very quenching with a good deal of crisp citrus followed by sweet clove and banana notes. Nice vibrant carbonation true to style. Crisp and refreshing yet flavorful as the same time. Well crafted. Well done.

Growler courtesy of bvc, poured into my .4l Kulmbacher Willebecher glass. Pour is cloudy hazy golden white. Big fluffy 3 inch white head caps the beer and is quite lasting. When it eventually falls, it leaves behind pretty lacing. Aroma of soft earthy banana, mineral clove yeastiness and nice grainy wheat. All very fresh. The banana fades fast. Taste is initially the earthy, grainy wheat which picks up a bit of a citric taste. The cove and banana are present as well, but behind the wheat. Finish is more of the mineral earthiness, ends with an almost flinty metallic which detracts some. Palate is medium, smooth and creamy. Despite having a bigger mouthfeel, it still goes down really easy like a good Hefe should. Nice one, thanks for thinking of me Brandon.

Hazy hef pour with a lingering head. Sourgrass and lemon, yeasty, coming off a bit hollow. Fine but not in the league of the sun thief.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy pale yellow with a lacy white head. Aroma is dominated by cloves with a bit of grassy/floral hops, and banana sneaking in there. More cloves and some bread in the taste, with a crisp finish.
