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

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

Surprising good. Lots of banana and clove. Even some sugary sweetness. One of the better German Hefes I’ve had.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 clybourn draft. served in proper glassware at a pretty appropriate temperature. very red for a hefe, but it looks pretty elegant. taste was confusing: at first, it was a very good, flavorful hefeweizen. then, while i was eating food, for some reason it just tasted like alcohol. then i tried clearing my palate and having it, and after a little while the correct flavor returned. a bit of candi sugar was there, not a ton of banana but still a good amount of hefe character. rerate: watery and not flavorful

Draft at the Goose Island Brew Pub. Cloudy orange beer with huge white head. Melon, cloves, and banana, as typical for a wheat. Crisp citrus sour finish, but unremarkable.

On draught in Wrigleyville. Hazy yellow with a tremendous white frothy head. Aroma dominated by yeasty, citrus notes which is carried through in the flavor. Some fruit esters, although not some of the strong clove like flavors present in the some of the German hefeweizens. In fact, I first had this in Chicago a number of years ago, and seem to recall a more asseritve flavor profile. Nonetheless, enjoyable and refreshing.

Sample at the Clybourn location. Thick lasting snowy bubbly head topping a deep gold, opaque body...light honey-spicy banana nose, more bready than most...pleasant brown sugared bananas mixing into sourdough in the body, tending to a quite sour, slightly lactic wheat at the finish...not really enough fruity sweetness for me, but drinkable enough.
