On tap at the brewpub. Been loving hefes lately, so this was a must-have on my latest Grumpy Troll stop. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy white head. Tons of bubble gum on the nose, with light spics. Sweet and refreshing--teetering on too sweet, but it worked with the pizza I was having, so I’ll say it wasn’t too sweet. Taste is the same bubble gum and sweet wheat, with a light mineral finish overlaid with some pear and light clove. Never tasted pear in a hefe before, but again, it worked. Well-carbonted, and just tasty as hell.

On tap at brewpub, pours a light golden color with no head, aroma is of hay and grass with some banana, the flavor is overall thin and has a hint of cloves with the yeast and banana, not my bad just not great.

Tab at brewpub. Pours hazy, golden-orange. Aroma is (suprise) very wheaty with yeast and spiciness. Pretty good hefe.

On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a cloudy straw-yellow with very little head. Aroma is a nice intense burst of clove, bubblegum, and banana. Flavor is bubblegum and banana with a very light citrus tart and some bready grains. Grassy hops show up after a while too. Thinnish, flat palate. Pretty good stuff.

Thick milky brownish yellow-orange color. Solid banana clove aroma. Fresh and smooth. Clean but yeasty body, nice and refreshing. Clove-lemon edge. Nice.

Not a lot of aroma, some banana right away in the flavor. A bit too much wheatiness in the flavor for me.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Very dense and hazy dark yellow, I’m assuming this is unfiltered. Light banana and clove aroma, some lemon as well. Smooth, more banana and a light sweet spiciness, quite good.
