COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In German, “hefe” means yeast, “weizen” means wheat. This unfiltered German-style wheat beer is light bodied but full flavored. The strain of yeast used to ferment the beer adds unique flavors perceived as fruity (citrus or banana), cloves, and even bubble gum. O.G. 1046 I.B.U. 10

onceblind (3939) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Hazy golden hued with an odd aroma of paprika and chili beans, perhaps with cumin or something; really weird smell. Taste is pure hefeweizen however, with notes of banana, wheat, clove, and more wheat in a bready dough tone. Right flavor, way off on the aroma.

brokensail (10640) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 15, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Aromas of banana, clove, orange, and dough. Some wheat bread, yeast, and light bubblegum. Flavor is fairly sweet, but does have a light tartness to it. Plenty of banana, clove, and bubblegum. A bit of dough, sweet bread, and a touch of citrus peel.

Lightly hazed pale yellow pour with a creamy white head and lace. Aroma of light clove and banana. Flavor of sweet wheat malt, ripe banana with a clove kicker. Light sour wheat finish. Light medium bodied with good carbonation. Cool Springs OG 10.50
Earlier Rating: 7/10/2007 Total Score: 3.3
On tap Nashville. A hazed golden pour. An aroma of corriander and bannana. A crisp flavor of the corriander comes out first then fades to the fruit and finishes with a very light bitter. Another decently carbonated beer with a solid palate all round but just a tad(wee tad) on the light side. Very good for the style no real flaws. I might should have rated it a tad higher. Maybe next time.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Appearance: Served up at my table a haze, pale light yellow body with a little bit of white fizz up top. Modest lacing.

Smell: Soft aroma of wheat malt overlayed with notes of spice (clove) and Big League Chew.

Taste: Minor graininess incorporated within the light malted wheat flavor. Some sweet wildflower honey accents. The anticipated spicy clove and bubblegum, though not much in the way of banana esters. Semi-dry finish, scantly creamyish with a continued wheat taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium to medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Decent enough. As with many of the Boscos brew, it’s just okay.

DiarmaidBHK (3371) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft at Bosco’s Nashville. Pours yellow with a fair amount of cloudiness and a very thin white head that leaves no lacing. Not much on the nose. Banana notes on the tongue but not much else. Finishes clean. Decent example of style Award winning? Uh no!

magsinva (868) - Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Tap @ boscos Nashville - pours a nice cloudy banana, little foam. Some quickly vanishing lacing. Aroma is white fruits, banana, bubble gum, and clove? Taste is a tad sweet. Mouth feel is kind of thin for a hefe, though it does coat the mouth nicely. Overall, solid effort, but not blowing me away.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
On tap at the River Market brewpub in Little Rock. They’re claiming this is an "award winning world renowned hefeweizen" and that it won gold at the 2012 World Beer Cup. Pours a hazy gold colored body with a thin, white head that dissipates immediately and leaves no lacing. A bunch of soda pop bubbles on the glass as well. Certainly not a good looking beer. Aroma is crisp wheats and a good amount of lemony citruses as well as a bit of a grainy pale malt, a light banana, and a touch of clove. Flavor is similar. Thinner up front with some wheat malts and a bit of a grainy pale malt backing. Lemony citrus comes in during the middle with a hint of banana. A touch of clove towards the end as this finishes with a good amount of lemony citruses, a thin wheat, and a slight dryness leaving a very light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light, thin body and a light carbonation. Overall, a bit of a disappointment. Thin and not very good looking with a decent lemon and wheat backing. Eh.
