This traditional Bavarian Hefe-Weizen (wheat beer) is popular in Bavaria during the spring and summer months. Pronounced Hay-fa-VI-tsen, this beer style is unfiltered and known for its unique banana and clove flavors, which come from the special German yeasts used in fermentation. It is light and wonderfully refreshing during the hot days of summer.

Draft. Average carbonation and hoppy aroma. Very smooth. Not quite as tasty as Cape Cod Red, but just as well polished. Clean finish. Will definitely buy again.

22 oz bottle, consumed outside on a deck overlooking the water
This is a nice hefe. Banana, some clove/other spices, a bit of wheat. Not overly sweet. Nice example.

Pours a clear gold from a bottle. Aroma of banana and wheat, flavor is spot on with the banana and clove flavors, good wheaty yeastiness. Starts off a little sweet but then finishes dry. Good beer.

Light banana and clove aroma. Clear yellow body with long last two finger fluffy white head that lingers quite awhile. Modest bread and banana taste with only a touch of bitterness. Light lemon puckering finish that is refreshing and great on a hot summer day.

On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Banana and clove bouquet. Smooth with big wheat and mild clove/banana highlights. Refreshing with a nice body and mouthfeel.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a crystal clear gold colored body. There was not any head, but for all I know the bartender may have waited until it died to make sure I had a full beer. The carbonation was slowly rising but very light. It left little lacing and no rings. The smell had some mild graininess with some malts. There wasn’t much else. The taste was malty and sweet. The hops were barely there. The palate it was light, sessionable with its low ABV. Overall, I was somewhat impressed and liked it with the fish and chips I had. I am looking forward to trying more from Cape Cod Beers.

One of the better offerings from this brewer. Typical hefe color, unfiltered hazy yellow, white head that lasted awhile. This could use a better yeast strain to give it a more appetizing zest, but with a little help of a lemon slice, this was very enjoyable.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 27, 2011
Fancy swing top bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Big banana and light clove notes, softly sweet wheat. Smooth and sweet, light wheat. Very clean, nice wheat and soft banana yeast over gentle carbonation. Super smooth and easy drinking. If this stuff sticks around a bit, I can foresee going through a few growlers of it next time I’m back on the cape.
