Translucent gold with large white head but very little lacing.Aroma was clean and fresh.A smoky banana taste that was stronger than I expected.But still a good offering.

Hazy golden body witha good sized fluffy white head. Nice slighty tart wheaty aroma, some mild yeast. Flavour is tart and wheaty with some notes of lemon. Palate is light for a wheat beer but nice. Thanks for the bottle NYSammy.

Another good Hefe. On par with Hacker Pschorr. I’d have to have side by side to determine a winner but they seem about the same to me.

Cloves, banana from yeast. Lemon in there. Above average for style. Malt sweetness aftertaste. Less carbonation would work .
On tap at Blue Tusk.

Light sweet aroma, wheat and yeast notes. Cloudy golden orange, rocky head. Light smooth mouthfeel, clove and light banana notes. Fruity but not very tastefull. A little bit thin at the end. Overrated, in my opinion.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Very good Hefeweizen. This beer is much better on tap then out of the bottle. Very accesible also. I recommend it highly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 Pours a cloudy yellow, great thick white head. Aroma is very grassy. Taste is the same grassy and hops but a slight irony aftertaste, very very slight banana but not even evident, pretty boring really, but not bad tasting, almost more a pilsner or lager really.

Bottle. Aroma is wheaty, with malt and just a touch of hops. Pours a slightly cloudy pale brown, with a really thick, rich, pillowy light-tan colored head. Head lasts damn near forever. Flavor is fruity, with prominent banana notes and slightly detectable alcohol. Hops is hardly detectable, wither in the aroma or flavor. Light to medium-light carbonation. Probably a repeat buy.
