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

I loved this beer. Big hefe fan. Aroma was light citrus. Flavor was heavy clove and banana with some other minor spices on the end. Hazy color typical of most hefeweizen beers. Good selection.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Draft at Cool Springs. Hazy vibrant yellow pour with no head. Amazing banana, citrus, clove, and a hint of pepper, not much yeast aroma. Flavor has a sweet cloying start, turns to a bad funky cardboard finish. How can a beer that smells soooo good taste so bad? I’m guessing it must have been a bad keg. I’ll have to sample again.

KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Growler-Memphis. LOTS of clove and sweet banana in the flavor. Maybe some cinnamon in the nose as well as clove. This one takes me back to Germany, no doubt. Love this beer!

Strykzone (4480) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Sample at the Memphis brewpub. Clear gold with a small white head. A classic interpretation. Nice cloves and cool zest. Just a hint of hops with some soft bitterness. A simple and likable beer.

Hazy light yellow with a fizzy white head. Very faint malt aroma and a faint banana bread taste.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of clear colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a hazy uncarbonated yellow colored body. The mild aroma was bready and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of malt banana wheat and honey. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Tap at Boscos. Foggy light yellow with a thin white head. Banana and bubblegum aroma. Vanila and bana flavors dominate. Some lemon and clove sneak in. Good beer. A

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Draft at Nashville location. Small white head that mostly diminished, cloudy body, visible carbonation, no lacing, and a pale yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, bananas and citrus. Ditto for the flavor and thin tasting. The mouthfeel was smooth and this is a light bodied German Hefe. Easy to drink, but it lacked a lot of the characteristics that one comes to expect with this beer style. This one is easy to forget for me.
