UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 This is one of my favorite hefes. Good amount of head, good cloudy yellow/amber color. A huge range of flavors can be found in this hefe... citrus, spice, fruit-punch-ish flavors... super-refreshing beer. An all-time favorite of mine. I used to buy them by the case.

Pour a cloudy orange/amber with a big white head. Aroma of yeast and malt with hints of citrus and bananas. A little spicy taste with hints of cirtus and a malty taste. Smooth aftertaste with some bitterness.

17oz - Aroma of yeast, candi sugar, lemon, and banana. Opaque golden yellow with champange like bubbles and a sustaining thick head that leaves no lacing. Flavor is right on to the aroma with a bit more bread dough. SLick palate washes down clean. A pretty good hefe.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Original rating 2.9. A solid beer for a wheat, in that it goes down especially well, without any bad funkiness. A great example of the style.

Listen... this is the best beer you’ll ever have that reads "Malt Liquor" on the label (see vertical print on right hand side of label--US only?). Pours antique-globe amber (amber waves of grain)with fair size head. Terrific aroma like sweetgrass (or sweet grass?), freshly bailed hay but in a good way. What’d the hay ever do to get arrested? Bahdumdum! But seriously folks... wonderful refreshing flavor, tiny bit of skunk comes through, but good skunk, I swear. Good and lasting mouthfeel, holds to the tongue a little like coffee (but it obviously doesn’t taste like coffee). Spider web of lacing slowly drains. I like this beer; I bet I like this beer more than you do. But you’re wrong. Cheers!

Bottle; poured a white head that lasted. Hazy, light amber hue. Hints of banana, flowers, and grapefruit. Light citrus taste. Oily texture with soft carbonation. OK but not a favorite.

A solid German Hefeweizen. Taste: yeasts, touch of fresh orange, malts and light hops. This beer has not disappointed me once.

pours a cloudy off brown copper w/ a small white head decent lacing. An odd sour light fruit aroma hints of wheat and lemon maybe cuz some idiot threw a lemon in my beer. Palate is mildly carbonated ok coating. Fairly light. Tastes of bannana nut bread light yeast and nutmeg. A pretty decent beer.
