4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at their D.C. location. I wish that they bottled this. It is a really good example of a Hefeweizen - nice white head on top of a very hazy wheat yellow. The aroma is a very memorable banana, a little citrus/lemony hint, and some mild spiciness. The taste is a little understated and weak. The bananas provide a very slight sweetness with a little sour at the end - maybe the yeast is finally coming through. The body is medium, lively, but very thin - almost macro-brew thin. It is a shame that this brew isnít just a little thicker.
This was a very good beer for a Saturday afternoon lunch on a hot and humid day. If you like hefeís, then you should give this one a try for lunch. Its not an "after dinner" beer, but it would be exceptional while grilling on a hot day. If only they bottled this.

Draft at goodwood. Pours a cloudy yellow with minimal white head. Traditional hefe aroma of wheat spice banana and clove. Mild malt as well. The flavor is more of the same mic spiced wheat flavor with banana and itís very smooth mildly bitter. Made very well.

This isnít spot on but itís pretty good. Itís cloudy, muddy orange in color w/ a head of mixed bubbles. It has a clovey aromatic quality and some banana comes out when you taste it. Itís a little bit sweet, sticky and heavy w/ mild carbonation for the style. If they fixed the texture, this would be spot on but this comes off as a bit unfinished as it is--though it does have a pretty nice flavor profile.

.5 liter pour at Gordon Biersch Park Lane. Poured a hazy golden color with a thin white top and a little lacing. Amazing taste of banana, clove and the distinctive wheat character. Medium carbonation, medium body. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Seattle. Pours a cloudy yellow orange body with a fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy covering. The nose is pretty nice, clove, banana, a little banana bread, nice yeast esters. Just a light touch of bubble gum. The flavor is decent as well, plenty of esters of banana and bubble gum, enough yeastiness, not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a lingering finish. Decent Hefe, not a standout, but no flaws.

On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Milky orange pour with a white head. A bunch of banana and white pepper aromas. Some clove, coriander, and a bit of a smoked sausage thing going on as well. A lot of sweet bread dough. Flavor is slightly citrusy and tangy. A whole lot of bread and orange peel. Big time bubblegum and banana. A little grassy bitterness on the back end. Is a little better (spicer) as it warms up. Wanted to like this more.

On tap at Yard House Waikiki 201214. The first thing that I noticed about this beer was the aroma, sweet and full of ripe bananas. A little cloudy but thatís what you want in a Hefeweizen.
