COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a crisp, refreshing ale perfect for all-around summertime drinking. It has a low hopping rate and high effervescence, with a palate featuring fruity acidity and a clove-like spiciness.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy, glowing, tangerine-amber color. A frothy, snow white head is large at first but fleeting, leaving soapy clumps to slowly lumber their way back to the surface. Aromatics include bubblegum, fresh wheat, candied orange peels, freshly grated clove and cinnamon. Flavors take more of a turn for the sweet, with notes of candied sugar accompanying the fresh wheat grains, vibrant citrus rinds, and earthy, fall spices. A surprising yet welcomed addition of floral hop bitterness shows on the finish, adding balance. The body is medium to light, with a lively carbonation. Overall, this is a crisp, clean above average Hefe with a bright citrus profile and a lightly spicy, hoppy finish. I enjoyed it.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Hazy golden. Clean, well-balanced with some banana, vanilla, marshmallow character. Off-dry finish. Yeasty, maybe even coriander accent. Well-made but it didn’t captivate me.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2008
On draft at brewpub. Pours a very cloudy, almost opaque, gold with a white head. The aroma is strong of wheat malt and weizen character (banana, soft fruit, cloves, pepper). The flavor follows the nose - a nice dose of fruit and crisp wheat. The finish is crisp, malty with wheat, and somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is strongly carbonated, crisp, and medium in body. Overall, a great, delectable hefeweizen that was deliciously appropriate - both to style and to season.

MadIndian (2305) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2007

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2007
On tap. Very cloudy yellow pour. Yeasty clove aroma. Husky. Very buttery, harsh flavor. Thin, but still good body from the wheat. Way too much diacetyl. Filling.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours cloudy orange with a thick head. Classsic fruit notes of bananana and other fruits. The wheat flavors show on the palate. Nice and light for the hot nights.

RIXbeer (102) - USA - JUL 21, 2007
Thick and so cloudy that you can’t see thorugh it. Opaque yellow/orange but more yellow. Thin lace of head. Slighty yeast aroma, wheat is barely noticable behind the banana. Very inviting. Delicous, just like it smells. Could of used more wheat flavor. A little light for me, as far as the wheat flavor is concerned. Yup, it’s banana and some light citrus notes. A little thin for the appearance. I expected a thicker beer. Especially since it was an opaque yellow color. Could of used a little more body. Would’ve rated it higher if it had a better mouthfeel. Very good going down. Nice cool summer night. I had 3 with dinner, 1 after. I thought about getting a growler today. I would’ve last night but we were there past thier serving time. Very drinkabe.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with quickly disappearing head. Wheaty and slight yeasty aroma. Flavour is the same and has a slight citric and orange addition. Finish is citrus fruity. Ok hefe-weizen but nothing great.
