CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at Clybourn on 6/20/07: Pours a very cloudy golden bronze with a thin ring of white bubbles. Aroma of sweet wheat and banana with some clove spice balance. Body starts fairly full with a touch of bready wheaty sweetness and nice authenticity and clove spice. A decent hefeweizen.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Draft at Clybourne. Nice banana clove aroma. Medium bodied but with a slight thin texture. Flavor of pale wheat malt countered by lots of clove, and a hint of banana bubblegum. Lacks the sweetness of the Hefes I like. However, still a very nice example of the style.

On tap at Clybourn. Flavor was very strong on the banana and spice. Really great tasting. Good mouthfeel, but just really liked the flavor.

wmubronco1992 (636) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2007
On tap at Clybourn location. Cloudy golden appearance. Excellent Hefeweizen aroma of banana and spices. Best Hefeweizen that I’ve had in a while. Well done beer and perfect for the hot summer. Looks like I rated higher them most, but I love this style when its done well and Goose Island definitely did this one right.

Nice aroma with yeasty, earthy notes. Very smooth and very refreshing. The head was pretty thin, but over all this beer was really nice
