Sample at Brewery. Pours yellow with a thick white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Nose leans more towards banana than clove. Has a bit of the estery thing on the nose. Fairly dry on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not mandatory.

Growler from artmcd8. Thanks, Art! The pour is a golden color with a thin, mostly short-lived, fizzy white head. The aroma is nice; pretty much like any typical good Hefeweizen: wheat, clove, banana, and some spice. The flavors follow; a soft wheat and herbal character kicks things off, lavender comes to mind, with banana, a little orange spice, light cinnamon, sweet vanilla, and a stale grain finish. Zippy carbonation that tingles the palate. Refreshing, easy going, and pretty tasty stuff. Definitely a winner in the middle of a Florida summer.

Tried at Jerome Bettis Grille 36 at the recommendation of the waitress. Slightly lighter in color, but refreshing on a warm day, as we were dining outside.

tap @ boulevard grill in johnstown,pa .. . pours a light yellow orange .. low head, light lacing .. . surprisingly flat mouthfeel .. . mild lemon and hay .. . a rare miss from east end .. . . so, I’m trying to do something unnatural, and they don’t really understand it, but they’re very upset about it.

Pours hazy and golden with a proportionate head size. Very nice mouth feel and a crisp finish. One of Pittsburgh’s best offerings.

On tap at Capones. Pours a very cloudy straw yellow color. Barely any head or lacing to note. Aromas of clove, german malt, orange peel, fruity esters, and bannana. Taste is a light yeast, wheat bread, dry fruits with mostly bannana coming through, some other german spice. Smooth refreshing palate with a dry finish in the mouth. Very good hefe.

12 oz. Draft at The Library. A decent wheat. Hazy golden pour with a big frothy head, quick to dissolve to a film. A little less than medium palate. Banana note, spice, clove.
