COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet mixture of spices and fruit with hints of clove and banana, this refreshingly pale German wheat is top fermented, unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and unmistakable cloudy appearance.

Bottle - Pours cloudy yellow with a thin fluffy white head. Nose has some of the banana/clove mix with mineral dryness and sweet wheat. Taste is much the same. Not as pungent and clean as I’d like it--more doughy yeast clouds it all up. But it’s flavorful and smooth, with tropical fruit and light spicing on the finish. Pretty big body, slick and smooth with ample carbonation. Surprised by this one--it’s pretty good.

Has a good pour, cloudy and hazy. Have had from bottle and tap, as a wheat advocate its very comparable to some of my favorites, like Paulener. Not quite near the Bells wheat series best offering but a solid Hefe you can get if you can find it. Tastes like a Hefe and the grains, background of Hefe are present especially in aftertaste. One of the better beers out of MI, for an ABV of its nature. I’d purchase this more than once as it is a completely solid beer. Frankenmuths finest.

Rotbart (155) - - MAY 19, 2012
Crisp citrusy aroma with a quickly dissolving head and urine color. That aside it had a medium sweet taste to it with a bold citrusy finish, a little above normal for a hefeweizen. Definitely a repeat purchase.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a straw gold yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, clove, banana, and a slight toast. Flavor matches well and is very drinkable. I could definitely drink many of these and not get bored. Extra points for that.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2012
On tap. Aroma has notes of banana, spice, clove and citrus. Cloudy pale yellow hue with a white head that left OK lace. Light bodied and average carbonation. Decent.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle… Florida Craft Beer and Wing Fest 2012… Hazy straw-colored ale with a small, white head. The bouquet offers nuances of clove and banana with whispers of smoke and bubblegum. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with prickly carbonation. The well-balanced, sufficiently bittered flavor presents overripe banana with a hint of clove and a rumor of acidity. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and a tad dry. Well crafted and cleanly brewed. Simply not a favorite style of mine.

hayduke (3776) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
From a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Strykzone. Pour is a hazy gold with a big foamy white head and light lacing. Nose of wheat, lemon, and cloves. Light to medium body, and with a classic hefe flavor showing banana and cloves mostly. The lemon shows again in the finish. Pretty solid offering.

Hair6a11 (1427) - Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle; Pour is slightly cloudy light golden with an average white head that retains fairly well into this glass. Light lacing is present here as well. I feel like the nose is the highlight of this brew; excellent hefeweizen notes are present here: sweet ripened bananas, wheat, and spices are present. The flavor profile seems a bit muted out of the gate for me. There is a bitterness present up front that moves through the finish and only closer to the end do you get the traditional elements. It is highly carbonated, for what that is worth. Regardless of that, this is a nice drinker, though.

shrubber85 (9135) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Sweet banana, apple, clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet banana, orange, clove, and wheat malt flavor. A very nice Hefe.

Pours hazy yellow with light clove notes that show more of a fruit and citrus base and a light easy finish.
