3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange, solid in density with no movement or head. Aroma is fairly reserved, but delving deeper reveals bananas, cloves and orange-vanilla crème. Decent effervescence and crisp citric flavoring accents. A little tart, but overlaid nicely with ripe bananas and orange dream like creaminess. One of the better brewpub renditions of the style.

On tap at the Govnors Brew Pub. Served with a slice of lemon. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of cloves and wheat. Even with the lemon slice (that I quickly removed) I got no citrus. Tastes of wheat, cloves, citrus, and bananas.

Pour is hazed and mostly opaque dark yellow with a thin white head...smell is lightly spicy with cloves and then some faint sweet banana...taste is a little musty with some clove and black pepper and light banana...

Had this one on tap in a sampler flight. I’m not a big fan of hefeweizens. This one is wheaty with a lemony nose. Surprisingly mild flavor with some bready taste. Not bad.

Had this one on draught at Brew Daze 2006. Served with a lemon. Hazy, dark yellow pour with a very thick white head, pronounced banana but not a whole lot else. Kind of watery. Not terrible.

Tap at brewery. Pours nice and cloudy with a heavy clove and banana aroma. Flavor is lemony bubblegum and clove. Palate is a bit thin; doesn’t spread the flavor well enough. Decent. Who knew the Irish made German Hefes?

Citrus lemon cut hay, grassy notes, banana esters, etc. Very thin bodied detracts points.
