   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 This is another one of those well-crafted hefeweizens that you find at US brewubs. It’s a recipe that is simple, and if they control their sanitation and use the right yeast, it’s hard to go wrong. This hefe has the proper hazy thick, cloudy orange hue, with semi-thick white lacing and a proper head. Smells of melon, cantaloupe, spicy, creamy yeast, madarin oranges. Very good, very rich, more of a wit-style, very fruity and creamy. Properly tart, spritzy and spicy from the yeast. Well made. How does a properly unfiltered hefe with great lacing garner all of these 3/5 for appearance? What would it need to look like to garner a 4 or 5?

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2006
On tap, DC location, 2006 RBSG pubcrawl. Pours a cloudy yellow gold under a small creamy beige head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is fruity and estery with cloves and lighter notes of banana and yeast. Flavor is heavy on the cloves with murky, muddled, wheat and light yeast. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy with an efforvescent carbonation level. Overall, middle of the road at best. Lacking in a whole lot of complexity and body.

aracauna (3032) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Cloudy amber with a good, soupy head that clings to the sides of the glass. Good balanced clove and ripe banana. The flavor has a bit of harshness that the beer could really do without. Not too bad though.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Hazy dull straw colour. Very clovey aroma with hints of banana. Fairly sweet flavour, straightforward in character with candied banana. Sweet malts and a light lively body but too simple.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2005
10.01.05 GABF Yeah, I got this simply to sample a DC beer, but I was hoping for something good. Hazy pale yellow, quickly fading head. Way sweet but nice late spice. This would be good with a cheese burger. Gets cloying. No citrus flavors to break up the sweetness. Very yeasty and doughy. It’s a mix of very good and very bad, so I guess just not well put together.

JMerritt (1765) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2005
GABF 2005. Hazy yellow with a small head. Decent banana and clove aroma, fairly common of what you’d find in most any decent hefe. Sour lemon, ripe banana and chewy wheat flavor. A touch too watery, but a decent offering.

TheBeerGod (5165) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2005
From a sampler at District ChopHouse in DC on September 5th, 2005. Cloudy gold. Nose is banana and bubblegum, light clove and spice. Semi-sweet throughout. Taste is banana and bubblegum, sweet maltiness, light citrus and spice. Body is medium and it finishes with more citrus notes, candy, banana, wheat and yeast.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Hazy yellow, with big bold flavors. The front gives clove, and then the banana comes in, finishing with coriander, pepper, and bubblegum. Good, soft palate. Not too sweet. An enjoyable take on a classic. (on tap at brewpub)

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Draft... Murky, deep yellow ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is of banana, bubblegum, smoke and overripe apple. Tangy, sweet and spicy flavor. Decently-balanced. Light to medium-bodied and very creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes spicy and grassy. Very nice for a hefe! Keep in mind that my scoring reflects my dislike for the style.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2005
From the tap at the Chop House. Nicely hazy and unfiltered, the full aroma belied its lack of taste. Overall not too bad, but a little bland.
