COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hot way to cool down Hot. Drenched. Delightfully blinding. Right. We’re not talking about that ball of fire in the sky, but our refreshing hefewiezen. Skip the shade and down a glass or two and be cool.

Grain: White wheat, 2 row malt, black malt and flaked wheat Hops: Saaz Yeast: German

HoppyAlesToYou (157) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Aroma of cereal, banana, clove, and slight cinnamon. Hazy body with a solid white head. Taste is slight sweetness balanced by a gentle spicy bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little fuller and creamier than most hefeweizens. Overall, an enjoyable experience but not superb.

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. Slightly hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma of banana and mild spice. Taste brings in a bit of copper, which isn’t welcome. This is just okay.

tectactoe (2299) - Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Tap: Murky apple juice pour, muddled & rusty. Soapy, bone-white layer of foam to top it off; quick to recede. Big hefe yeast notes on the aroma; clove, soft bubblegum, milled wheat, delicate spices. Very estery, heaps of banana, orange zest, a touch of lemon rind. Grassiness is present & grows in strength over the course o the glass. A little back-end sugary sweetness. A little more watery on the palate than I prefer my hefes. Lots of musky hoppage, more than the aroma would lead on; still maintains low bitterness. Banana & clove esters are still there, just a little more toned down. Coriander, mint, bready spice, esters, & residual sweetness. I actually get a strange, damp funkiness in the back-end, especially nearing the end of the glass. Borderline musky cellar-ish. Strange? Otherwise a nice beer. Good summertime quaffer... The nose outshines everything else, though.

Aroma is spices, wheat and a hint of pumpkin. The flavor is citrus, spices, fruit, wheat, a hint of pumpkin and a tart/tangy finish.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Poured into an appropriate drinking vessel (and certainly without a twist), this has a dark straw, somewhat brownish body with a tall off-white head. It’s got an aroma of ripe bananas with a touch of bubblegum. The taste added a quiet flavor of inexpensive wheat bread (and I don’t mean that in a bad way) and mayhaps a drop of lemon juice at the end. All in all, this is fairly decent warm weather brew that I wouldn’t refuse. (And yes, this ol’ juice hound does sometimes refuse a drink.)

Draft. Pours a dark orangish color. Aroma is bananas and malt. Taste is sweet with some bitterness.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor has some good traditional Hefe, Banana, clove, wheat but some mild citrusy hops are a welcomed note. Good.

smroush (41) - Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Classic cloudy slightly dark gold color. Yeasty aroma with a little bit of spice. Yeast and a bit of clove on the palate. Very slight citrus flavor? Best at a relatively warm temperature. Warmed up to this one as I drank more of the bottle.

Darker hefe. Brown orange pour. Heavy yeast, banana, clove per usual but also pretty strong backbone for a wheat. Spicy finish. Pretty good stuff.

Narnad (1472) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a hazy, orange color with a tall, creamy, long lasting head. Aroma is strong of ripe banana, light clove, some oatmeal like nose to it. Flavor start off with a good dose of banana followed by some light clove and a great bready finish. Body feels creamy from the yeast and has a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a pretty good example of a hefe as all the flavors are very nicely balanced.
