Our German-style Hefeweizen is an unfiltered wheat beer that is handcrafted using only pure imported Hallertau Mittelfrueh noble German hops to give it an original old world taste. With its white creamy long lasting head, golden color, subtle aroma of bananas, and light hop taste, our Hefeweizen has a crisp refreshing taste. The smooth balanced finish makes this a perfect beer for everyday enjoyment!

[2/18/15] Draught at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton. Nice cloudy yellow with a white head. Pleasant classic aroma with banana and clove. Sweetish flavor, wheaty, fruity and spicy. Medium-bodied.

Drank in Anaheim. What you'd expect on a quality hef. Cloudy yellow, taste was creamy, wheaty and fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well-crafted and can really taste the all-natural all-original recipe. It's an unfiltered beer and there was definitely stuff floating in my beer. Feels like a beer-drinker's 312. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle - Aroma - sugary in the nose, some spice/clove, nice showing of banana which is amplified by the perceived sweetness Appearance - hazy gold body, 3" fluffy white head, with impressive retention...nice lacing. Mouthfeel - light/medium bodied, with soft carbonation...silky Flavor - lots of cracker and bread up front, some sweetness mid-palate that brings out the banana flavors. Banana and bread...with a little caramel. Nice. Overall - If this were in a blind tasting, it would be hard pressed to tell it wasn’t made in Germany. A really nice attempt, solidly produced and priced right.

Bomber from Hi-Time. Pours brassy gold with a fine white head. LIght aroma of banana ester. Med body, nearly. Flavor: Something gone wrong here. It’s lightly phenolic, the banana is barely detectable. It seems to be a rather unremarkable wheat beer, and there’s not a lot of hop. Drinkable, but not really something I’d repeat.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Light sweetness, moderate spicy yeasty notes, and hints a fruity banana. Not bad.

Keg at Rock’n’Fish, Laguna Beach, 17/04/14. Murky orange with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is bitter orange, light spice, clove, nana, wheatn bread. Taste comprises straw, bitter orange, light spice, earthy, slightly soured fruit tones, yeast esters, bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok hefe, more of the bitter orange/tangy fruit variety than the noffee pie type.
