Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with bubbly white head. The aroma is dried leaves, banana, some spicy clove notes, and a hint of fruit. The flavor is acidic and somewhat lemony at first, then grass and lemon. Tart finish with some bready notes. Pretty good.

Presented as an "organic" heffe - well, who knows? How can you tell by the taste? Anyway, it had a great cloudy Heffe appearance. Aroma was nice, couldn’t say this had any banana, but the spicyness was there. Flavor had a nice "ka-zing" and finished with a full fruitiness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft - Dark cloudy gold, white creamy head. Soft banana clove aromas with a light white bread foundation. Earthed wheat and banana spice remain balanced and bland. Watery and thin with light carbonation. This one needs some serious help…

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Date: 08/23.08, draft at Front Street Brewing in Wilmington, NC
Aroma - Fairly classic hefe aroma with banana esters and clove, neither of which is overpowering
Appearance - Hazy yellow/orange, head is somewhat small for a hefe, but some good rings of sticky lace
Flavor - Starts with some honey sweetness, followed quickly by a mild lemony tartness, and finally a soft spicy bitterness right at the finish.
Palate - Light to medium body, medium carbonation, clean palate,
Overall - A decent hefe, drinkable, refreshing, perhaps on the conservative side for the style, and this is not a criticism.
