3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Labeled as "The Hef". Super cloudy pear-yellow color. Opaque. Aroma of mild bubblegum, bread, yeast, faint clove, a touch of banana esters, & a hint of lemon zest. Flavor is more lemon & citrus zest up front & in the finish. Middle has clove, biscuit, gummy yeast, & a bit of banana. Kind of watery at times. Thin-ish mouth feel. Not bad.

Very hazy yellow pale pour with quite a bit of head. Very unique taste. I’m used to my Weizen having a fruit taste, usually citrus. This one though tastes like banana. Yes banana. This ss not a bad thing.

A very good, albeit second-tier, Bavarian Hefeweizen. Not in the same league as true Bavarians Weihenstephan or Schneider, but one of the better American offerings. The Weissbier from Redwood Lodge (Flint) , Jim’s Hefe, is closer to the Bavarian ideal.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. Aromas of banana, lemon, and clove come through to the nose. There are also some notes of orange. Lots of soapy white head sits atop a clear butter pale beer - much more clear than I?d expect from a hefe. The head retains well and leaves a puffy lace. The taste is a medium high sweet with a medium light bitter. The texture is slick and oily with a soft creamy carbonation and light body. It finishes with a watery banana, lemon, and grain quality with a spice note. The aftertaste is relatively clean.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Hazy, straw color with an off-white head and fair lacing. A fine yeasty sediment had accumulated in the bottom of the bottle and added to the haziness. I stopped pouring when I saw the sediment, but some had already gotten into the glass
Aroma of wheat, caramel, cloves, bananas, yeast, very mild lemon and a touch of earthy hops.
Taste of wheat, sour lemon, sweet malt, cloves, yeast and bananas.
Light/medium body and medium/low carbonization.
Rather sweet for a hefeweizen. The elements that make for a good classic hefeweizen are there, but understated.

bottle - Pours lightly hazy yellow with a small white head and a yeasty, banana aroma. It has a light, mild, sweet flavor of wheat malt with a little yeast spice and banana. Okay.

From a 12 oz bottle in a glass. Flavor is thin wheatey and slightly creamy. Typical decent hefe.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very light haze in a pale straw color with a thin head cover and light swirls of lace. The taste begins with wheat malt that blooms as it crosses the palate. On the swallow a whole new collections of taste sweep back through on a table of bitter carbonation - spices, banana, and sweet caramel malt that all lingers nicely. Unusual and quite drinkable. Recommended.

Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. There is a slight hops aroma and i can actually smell a bit of the banana they claim. It is medium sweet with a light sour. It has a light body and thin texture that. It has a bit of a pucker factor with the sourness. Meh as far as overall beers go and I’m not really a fan of hefeweizen.
