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

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.

Draught in Nashville at Boscos. Pours cloudy yellow with a white film and edgy head. Yeast and wheat, banana and clove aroma with citrus hop nose. Sour, sweaty yeast (leather) and light malt (grain) flavor with a lightly acidic citrus hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy.

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.

thedm (4935) - 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.

Strykzone (4930) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - 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.

hotstuff (4092) - 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.
