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 at the Little Rock location. smells like a banana split. like drinking a banana with cloves stuck in it. ridiculously hefe-like. almost cartoon-like in its hefeness. some lacing. hefe people would love this. Of the group, my guess is this is the one beer at Boscos that is most outstanding in its beer category. It is gutsy, in my opinion, to have your lone wheat beer be this one in a world of popsicle flavor wheat beers. This is a loud, bold, hefe.

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.

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!

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

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On draft at the Memphis location. Hazy, almost neon yellow-orange with a small white head. Typical aroma of banana, clove and slight hint of apricot. Tastes the same with the addition of a mild acidity. Medium mouthfeel. A well-rounded hefe in my opinion. I could have done without the huge chunks of orange and lemon that accompained the glass, though.

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.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - 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.
