tap at Wrigleyville. Easy drinking. Orange and wheat aroma. Middling mouthfeel, which is a little light for this style. Carbonation is right there. A bit sweet. Altogether a summer beer.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 On tap at G.I. Clybourn. Poured a cloudy deep amber with just wisps of white head. Freshly-cut bananas, candy corn, tart lemongrass, and an underlying sweet maltage graced the nose. Caramel and dark-fruity sweet malts, banana extract, and candied apricot were found in the flavor with well-placed lemon tartness. Lightly-grainy on the palate with well-placed bitterness. Good hefe.. not a great hefe.

Some banana, apple, citrus. Smallish white head, cloudy, orangey. Very light, some peanuts and oat. It would be better if it wasn’t so light...

On tap - Hazy yellow, ggod head but almost no lacing, light-bodied. The standard nose, banana, lemons, and clove. Detected the spices while tasting, mild tartness too. Dry finish, fizzy and earthy mouthfeel. Seem a fly liked it too. A solid hefe but nothing to seek out unless already at the brewery.
