COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawing upon German brewing traditions, our HefeWeizen is crafted with a roughly 50-50 blend of domestic two-row Barley and imported wheat malts, sweetened with a pinch of Belgian Caromel malt. Lightly hopped with American and European hop varieties, this medium bodied, golden straw colored ale, is fermented with a proprietary yeast strain that produces a clove and phenolic aroma and flavor, with minimal banana. Refreshing citrus and apricot notes, along with the traditional cloudiness produce a crisp, highly drinkable hefeweizen.

Tap at dg’s. Light pour, cloudy, typical yeasty phenols in the nose, and very nice clove notes, easy drinking and smooth. A bit less intensely flavored than some of the best, but a solid hefe.

DiarmaidBHK (3523) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Golden and cloudy on the pour with a thin white head. Nice banana on the nose. Definitely get more esters on the tongue which add a bubble gum to the proceedings. Finishes clean for a very good hefe.

Murky soft yellow. Swirling the yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle and pouring it made the murky swirls drop down into the glass, eventually dispersing and transforming this beer from a transparent yellow runofthemill beer beer into a cloudy, almost perfect looking hefeweizen. The smell was quite sweet, citrus everywhere, big lemons and grapefruits, punkcy. Taste is a little less exciting. A bit bland, smooth oranges and lemons, not as acidic as the aroma hinted.

CanIHave4Beers (3338) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a small head. The aroma is awesome with tons of banana and orange. The flavor is messy, lightly minerally with a off kind of perfume-y bitterness, there is lots of banana and some booziness, just seems a bit sweet and unbalanced but it seems like it could be brilliant with some tweaking, who knows. I do love the way this beer smells.

BVery (6846) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2009
TAP: mostly clear light gold pour, clove on the nose, banana/clove on taste - very good Hefeweizen.

drowland (6135) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Tried at the 4th Annual Festival of Iowa Beers. Good Hefe smells but low carbonation and generally weak/watery flavor.

ketchepillar (1123) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Perfectly clear. Nice clove in the finish. More clove than banana. A bit garbagy. Good flavors but something is just slightly off.

kseecs16 (1207) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Served with a lime, but other than that fairly solid. Pale gold slightly hazy. Clovey, citric aroma, flavor is similar. Clove rich lemony with some bubblegun sweetness. Fairly light overall but not bad.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was a hazy dark gold. The aroma was lots of banana with light clove and some vanilla. The taste had some subtle bananas and some light cloves. This was simple and solid.
