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.

Hair6a11 (1323) - 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 (7384) - 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.

Onslow (1135) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2011 Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy pale gold brew with a thin white head. Ample lacing as the glass is drained. Excellent aroma of wheat, close, citrus. Flavorful for a hefe, with a smooth and almost sweet wheat flavor blending into a spicy end with lingering lemon sour in the aftertaste. This owuld probably be great with a slice of lemon in it - I don’t have any on hand to try. Nice palate - thin as you’d expect but still satisfying. As with all Frankenmuth brews, very refined with good complexity, absolutely noting off or unpleasant. I hope this is around all summer...

milewide (1474) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2011
Cloudy blond color with medium head. Fine spice aroma and taste. Medium body. No hops. Hefeweizen is too bland for my tastes, but this is a fine domestic example.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Draft sample. Poured an hazy dark orange color with an large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus, banana and clove aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium spicy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow straw. Aroma is clove, banana, nutty, yeast, pretty true to style. Taste is strong banana with some bitterness, a little bit tart. Not too bad.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 Hazy and milky amber yellow with a soapy white head. Aroma of banana, yeast, bready malt and light spice. Taste is mild with lemon, light banana and mild yeast. Thin and not a great hefeweizen.

klingea1 (28) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Tap at the Corner Bar. Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head. Apple and pear esters mix with a bit of honey and light malt. A rare beer that tastes better than it smells.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Faint hints of lemon and citrus in the aroma. Flavor is wheat, fruity esters and yeast. Pretty average hefeweizen.
