COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
By popular demand, our summertime seasonal is no longer filtered and has been permanently converted to a full-blown Bavarian-style Hefeweizen! A unique strain of yeast produces banana-like ester flavors up front and phenolic clove, spicy notes in the background. Brewed with half barley malt and half white wheat malt and hopped with Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.

On tap at the pub. Hazy golden color with a short lived frothy yellowish head. The nose shows some spice but i mostly get the lemon wedge with which they garnished the glass. Flavor has lots of lemon, with some bitter orange peel some spice and the banana in the finish. It’s an okay beer but not a great hefe.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with lasting, frothy, white head and dense lace. Nose of wheat, earth, lemon, clove. Medium body, assertive carbonation, slightly watery mouthfeel. Taste is very earthy - dirt like, also strong wheat, lemon, spice and banana.

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy dark gold with thick, frothy off-white head; decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is banana, cloves, dough and cereal malts, floral notes, and wheat. Flavor is bready malts forward with a touch of sweetness and supporting light fruit esters, faint hops, and some herbs; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Fuck, even at $6 I feel offended. Rotted tangerines and a metallic note in the nose, very difficult going. Faded malts are the BEST part of this beer. Train wreck.

Maverick34 (2041) - New York, USA - MAY 6, 2013
.75l big bottle. Cloudy yellow otange white head. Decent enough esters and banana but something off about this - watery and not right. Oh and the cork said best by march 2013. Really useful....after you bought and opened already.

This is a weizen! Beautiful golden poor with a nice white head that leaves a substantial amount of lacing. The aroma is light & quite subtle. The taste consists of soft fruit notes primarily banana. The body is creamy & the beer is excellently balanced! Easily 1 of the best hefeweizen’s I’ve ever tried!

bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Weizen is not my favourite style imitation by US brewpubs, the creamy yeast strains always end up watery due to too short time spent in the test tubes. Thin body, quickly disappearing head, which might be due to the miniature glasses. All elements (banana malts, clove nose) in place, refreshing enough, but this is not a brew that carries the arguments for its own US-existence on its sleeve, apart from paying diluted tribute/homage (vs. f.e. Victory Prima Pils or Sierra Nevada Hefe for spectacularly tasteful instalments of this transatlantic irony).

Bottle from beer run. Spicey cinnamon and clove. Requisite wheat and banana flavors. Light refreshing summer drink.

MadRobin (1694) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Whole Foods in Market Square in Fairfax, VA. Cloudy, orange-brown with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of wheat, coriander, grain, mild banana and yeast. Taste of wheat, banana and yeast with an earthy, slightly bitter finish. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
