3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Let’s hear it for airport beers. There are certainly many worse out there. This hefe was a bit on the darker golden side for the style, and a bit maltier than many. Felt heavy instead of refreshing. Some banana and clove, but a bit of a sharp wheat and slight pepper vibe. Not bad, but I liked the pilsner much better.

Doesn’t quite make it into the acceptably decent margin of 2.5. Light banana peel. Pours slightly hazy gold. Light sour finish and a hint of grain even. Tap at brewpub.

Draft. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of clove, citrus, banana, and some wheat. Light body with a slight tartness upfront with some citrus and wheat notes. A nice example of a Hefe.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub at LAX, hazy orange pour with thin white head, lacing. Aroma brought some lemon, orange, hints of banana and clove but restrained, hints of slight grain as well. Taste is a mix of grain, husk, bready notes into some lemon, finishing fairly sweet. Not bad, but nothing amazing for sure.

Man do I love this hef! In my humble opinion, one of the best American Hefeweizens. Love the aroma, the wheat and malted barley are fantastic! Taste could be more pronounced but overall great American hef.

Sharp, green off- the tree banana and sugary bubblegum. Hazy yellow with a frothy head. Strong sweet , spicy banana and clove taste, maybe a touch too sweet if I have to name a drawback. Crisp and refreshing mid weight body.

Sampler at Seattle location. Thin yellow beer with thin head. Thin, sweet and watery but with some of the usual clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat you’d expect from a Hefe.
