COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional German styled wheat beer served unfiltered. Hazy straw colored beer that hints at banana and clove complexity as all Hefe Weizens do. This thirst quencher drinks so easy it may fog your goggles.

A hefe done well. No need to over think this one, has a all the great qualities of a solid hefe weizen( your banana, clove, hazy appearance, etc etc.). If you see it, buy it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very hazy. Loaded with banana nose and taste. Wow. Smells and tastes like banana in a candy runts sort of way...is this really from the yeast?!??!?

This poured a ridiculously cloudy yellow to orange color with a white head. Nose was straight banana. some bubblegum and clove too. Flavor was much the same, just great blend of yeast, bubblegum, lots of banana and some spices. Great Great hefe.

The beer has a nice hazy golden color to it with a great white head and some lacing on the glass. The smell is a decent banana and clove blend with some maltiness on the back end too. The taste is the same with the malt, banana, clove coming at you with the clove lingering around. The mouthfeel is dry from the clove and great combination. Overall, a great hefeweizen that works well for a summer night.

On draft at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Pours a mostly hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some bread, some light yeasty sweetness, some banana, some orange. Flavor is similar- bread, banana, lemon, and slight pepper with hints of hops. Light in body, poundable, and freaking tasty.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy, yellow/gold with a sizeable frothy white head. Solid hefe aromas of banana and clove are spot on for the style. Light to medium body, palate cleansing effervescence, crisp and clean. Some nice honey sweetness up front, followed by a hint of wheatiness and very gentle bitterness at the finish. This is an excellent hefeweizen in the classic Bavarian style. Why it’s classified as a wheat ale on Ratebeer is beyond me.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2010
On tap at Fat Heads in Cleveland. Pours a light and murky yellow... almost a whitish tint to it. Big head, even in the sampler glass and aromas that are thick with banana and cloves with a little bit of a grassy edge to them. Flavor is pretty bold... lots of cloves and bananas with a sweet tutti fruitti/candi sugar side to them. Very nice stuff.

Had on tap at Fatheads A-pours an extremely cloudy dark amber color with tons of dense creamy white head. S-the nose is huge! tons of wheat, notes of earthy flowers, notes of banana and bubblegum, fair amount of clove, an abudance of dry grass and lemon in the back. T-the bubblegum is right up front, hints of phenol in the taste, lots of wheat, banana and citrusy lemon, light spice to it with corriander and pepper, not nearly as earthy or grassy but there is a hint of these flavors in the back with a light hop bitterness. M-it has a medium body and is quite chewy, well carbonated with a crisp finish and a little grainy on the palate. pretty spot on. D-well balanced hefe with good flavors and a nice complexity to it. this is tasty and refreshing as the spice is light and the wheat flavors are big but both are there working together.

Poured on draft. Appearance is a hazy straw color with a fluffy white head of foam. Aroma is loaded with bananas, cloves, cardamom, and freshly baked wheat bread. Banana nut bread comes to mind. Taste is initially sweet, but the traditional faint tartness makes a nice appearance in the finish. Pretty good.

Draft @ Fat Heads. Color is hazy bright yellow with dense white head, laced the wheat glass. Nose is wheat with a crazy amount of banana and cloves. Interesting flavor, uh... This tastes like banana candy called Runts. Really has a insane amount of banana. Lets face it, it is "Banana’s Gone Wild" clove and wheat are just hints. Yeasty type of body, yet the banana almost feels artificial. Overall, I really love the style and this beer is different because of the crazy amount of banana. Perhaps the brewer did something with a German yeast strain or added a extract, not overly sweet and I drained the glass real easy. A slightly different spin on a classic German style, cool.
