A wheat beer brewed with Bavarian yeast, this beer has the classic characteristics of a European Hefeweizen such as a clove and banana aroma. Served unfiltered this beer will quench your thirst on those hot summer days.

A: The pour is the typically cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Points taken away from the appearance for the lemon wedge that it was served with. S: A pleasant surprise as I bring this one to my nose: clove! There really is too much clove here, but that along with a mild banana note, is really much better than the usual crappy pale wheat ales. T: Like with the nose, the cloves really dominate the flavors of the beer. The banana comes through more than it did in the aromas, however. There is just a tinge of tartness on the finish. M: A light to medium bodied beer with a somewhat low carbonation. D: Not the best hefeweizen, but at least it is one. I’d recommend this one if you’re at Callahan’s.

This one was actually surprisingly good. Color was hazy gold with a creamyish white head. Aroma was light, but wheat and banana. Flavor was good, with sweet wheat and banana. Tasty. A bit bready. Good.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a murky orange-yellow color with a thin white head that has decent retention. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas and wheat. Light body with some carbonation, and flavors of wheat and some banana and citrus. The finish is clean and wheaty with a sweet fruit and spice aftertaste. Decent overall.
