Pours a cloudy golden color with a disappearing white lace. The aroma is wheat, honey, summer fruits, coriander, and some other earthy spices. The taste on the palate starts acidic and tart with a bready sweetness that tantalizes the tastebuds with honey, orange, lemon, all spice, that is sweet and malty which coats the palate and finishes lite and clean.

Draught pint @ CBC 5/5/06. Pours a cloudy golden orange honey blossom color with a huge bright white foamy head. Nose is bananas, clove and some lemony notes. Wonderful mouthfeel, very smooth and full bodied. Great flavors of banana, orange, clove, some light spiciness,bits of lemon zest. Finish is refreshing and clean.

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.

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.

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Tap at CBC. Hazy golden, small white head. Familiar Hefe nose, not over the top like too many American interpretations. Very nice, clean, refreshing flavor that balances the hops malt and wheat very well. Usually not a big fan of the style, but this is very well made.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 On draft at CBC. Came in with no head at all. This one is more of a cloudy yellow than orange like most hefe’s. Aroma is neutral. Flavor is OK, but the oddest thing about this hefe is its fizzy mouthfeel. A strange brew. RE-RATE: Sept. 2011. Nice fresh pour ont on the patio. Much better than the one I had last year. Good head and carbonation. Good aroma and flavors.
