COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We figured the workers living in Williamsville, also known as Hell’s Hole, would have appreciated a few of these refreshing brews. A true Bavarian Hefeweizen, this thirst-quenching wheat beer is made with 2-row brewers malt and heaps of Bavarian wheat. Hopped with three German varieties: Herschbrucker Hallertauer, Spalt and Perle. The hints of banana and clove come from the special Bavarian yeast strain we use
<old description - old formula> We figured the workers living in Williamsville, known as Ragtown or Hell’s Hole, would have appreciated a few of these refreshing brews. A thirst-quenching wheat beer, made with two-row brewers malt and heaps of white wheat malt. It is hopped with Liberty and the acclaimed Oregon Chinook aroma hops. If you haven’t tried this one, you haven’t tried the most popular beer brewed in Boulder City.

stevoj (2952) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Looks like weizen,some of the normal weizen characteristics are present in the aroma and taste,but tends to be watery,and no finish. Minus for serving with an orange slice. Save that for the Shock Top.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Sampler at the brewpub in Boulder City. Not much to this one. Maybe a hint of aroma on the nose. Needed to be a little more carbonated and not much flavor to speak of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (3057) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 7, 2013
This last batch must be much better than previous years. Good citrus aroma. Flavor of citrus, banana and clove. Nice and cloudy. The brewer had some good stories.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2013
This is a good German style hefeweisen. It is way underrated. Has the nice banana and clove flavor and nose. Had at the brew pub and really enjoyed having the brewer tell us about it.

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
A hazed amber hefeweizen with a thin lacing creamy mocha head. In aroma, sweet orangey banana with light cloves. In mouth, a sweet banana wit faint cloves, again, watery and boring. On tap at brewpub, August 8 2012.

Wittales (725) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Appearance was cloudy orangish gold with creamy diminishing white tiny head, spotty lacing. Aromas are yeasts of bananas, clove, hops are slight lemon with soft wheat and light sweet malt. Taste was sweet pale/pils malt with grainy wheat, then fruity hefe clove and banana yeasts. Palate was smooth soft CO2 with light-meduim body, then average fruity hefe length finish. Solid local Hefe...
