Bottle. Cloudy, gold color. Nice big head, breaks down kind of strange. Taste is like most hefeweizen beers. Has that fruity, clove clove taste and aroma.

12 oz. Opaque, orange-pear color with a creamy lasting head. Mild nose is wheat, lemony-spicy yeast, and a hint of banana and clove. Taste is the same pleasant mix, but has an occasional glance of too much bitter wheat and metallic citrus. Light-medium body is one of the creamiest I’ve ever had. Very smooth, but still has a refreshing tongue tingle and is well-balanced. Pretty good American take on the style; definitely has the Bavarian yeast strain. I suspect the low ratings are from those who don’t swirl :)

Hazy, lemon gold with a tall, white head. Scent is lemony, wheat, malt. Taste is clove and wheat. Light stuff...banana aspect is minimal. Decent, just rather average.

Probably the weakest hefe I’ve ever had. Pours a hazy golden straw hue nose is faintly of yeast and some banana. Taste is almost watery and very one-dimensional. Boring. Maybe I got a bad batch? I hope so anyway. BBC you can do so much better than this!

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Lactic lemon, banana, clove and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet banana. light clove, and light wheat malt flavor. Body a bit light. Overall a solid hefeweizen if a bit on the light side.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Cloudy yellow brown, big head. Smells kind of corny, which is odd for a hefe. Flavor is more wheaty than the aroma inidcates, with a good deal of banana and bubble gum. Hoppy, crisp bite.

Jabic (405) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Ar: Lemon peel and some banana, a hint of clove and moss. Ap: Cloudy light-gold, small white head with poor retention and a very slight bit of lacing. T: Banana and peach up front, medium-low sweetness - very low bitterness - finishes with a banana and very slight citrus finish. P: Medium body, a touch watery on the finish - medium carbonation, soft and creamy - finish is medium-dry. O: Easy-drinking hefe - flavors are all there, quite tasty - a bit more intensity of flavor a firmer mouthfeel would be an improvement.
