COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Hefeweizen beer with that great German Weisse flavor we’ve all come to know and love. Notes of banana and clove tantalize the nose and tongue mixed with a beautiful wheat flavor. The perfect refreshment on a beautiful day.

Dacrza (484) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Date tasted: July 18, 2013 ... Glassware: weizen glass... Occasion: fourth 90+ degree day--and looking for a beer to soothe and satisfy....Appearance: hazy golden body that clouds thickly; zero lacing and swiftly settled head don’t endear this beer aesthetically... Aroma: some strong bubblegum and clove aromas; some banana and some astringent yeast... Palate: light to medium bodied; substantial enough to be considered in the mouth...Taste: mildly flavored of smoked cloves and some banana, but overall rather refreshingly clean and clear of obstructive taste... Overall: this beer didn’t "lure his prey" quite as aggressively as hoped for; a serviceable hefe that cools the drinker but does not reward him; a safe choice....

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a large thin fizzy white head that faded slowly to a thin film. The nose is more like what I’d expect from a Wheat Ale than a Hefeweizen. There’s some wheat, bready notes, and minimal yeastiness. There’s no fruity esters at all. The flavor is much the same, very bland and missing the banana and bubblegum flavors that I want in a good Hefe. There isn’t even a whole lot of yeastiness to this one. Lighter bodied with a very fizzy mouthfeel and a short and bland finish. This really doesn’t even cross near to the territory of a German Hefeweizen.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2013
My second Evil Genius beer, I think. 12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered dulled orange-tan. Massive off-white head, mostly due to infection and/or overcarbonation. I’d try and forgive it, but I’d guess this is just wildly infected, considering they describe it themselves as traditional Hefeweizen. Zesty and soured wheat...not in a good way. Pretty bad beer, horrible for the style. Clearly Evil Genius has bottling issues...

boxofrane (2047) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle from mari’s. Pours hazy yellow with no head retention at all. The aroma has a musty lemon peel, slightly yeasty. The taste has a lemon lime funky taste. Weirdly tart and not really to the style.

NikkTwist (1517) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sample at a beer event at Fado. Hazy blonde pour with a slight white head. Toasted wheat notes in the nose. Fairly fully whole wheat flavors plus a tinge of sour. Bright flavors muddled with a puffed wheat barricade. Decent hopped up wheat notes.
