On tap at GR Brewing Co. Decent hefe. Wheat and yeast flair dominates this cloudy pour. Decent.

Very cloudy pale blonde pour with thick white head. Grain aroma with rustic characters and isoamyl acetate/clove. Raw wheat/yeast in the flavor. Grainy notes and esters clash a little bit. A touch spicy with no hops. Light bodied.

Part of a paddle at GRBC. Appearance: Pale yellow with a slight haze. A pretty perfect looking hefeweizen. Nice pillowy head and some patchy lacing. Smell: Clove and banana. Not as banana heavy as I’d like. Seems like a pretty even balance with the clove and banana. Taste/feel: Medium feel and carbonation, true to the style. Tastes pretty good. Like I said, I like more banana than clove or other spices, but it’s alright. I’m admittedly not the hugest fan of hefeweizens though... whoops. It’s fine. It’s alright. A reasonably good, decently brewed, organic hefeweizen.

A well rounded hefeweizen falls more towards the fruity end of the spectrum. Almost like a glass of bananas with some wheat and cloves thrown in the result is a very drinkable beer that I think is a regular tap. It is certainly worth at least a sample size pour.

Aroma / Appearance - A hazy golden base shimmers underneath the light shelter of white head. Mild spices - mainly cloves - temper the nose of bananas, wheat, and sweet ripened fruits.

Flavor / Palate - Bananas, cloves, and a sprinkle of other spices brighten the palate. The result is neither cloying nor bland. The alcohol does make an appearance in the finish. A solid pint was worth the cost despite not being able to try a few more of Grand Rapids’ other offerings. I’m sure I will be back based on this data point.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
On tap at Grand Rapids Brewing Co. Hazy banana yellow with a thin white topper. Aroma of banana, clove and yeast. Taste is a standard hefe with a little sugar to boot – banana, cloves and yeast. Okay.

Very nice hefe interpretation. A slight bit on the sweet side. Banana more than clove. Delicious.
