kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Poured a cloudy yellow gold body with a frothy white head that fell to a thin film, some nice lacing. The nose is really nice, very estery with lots of banana and clove, some nice bubblegum as well. Plenty of yeastiness. Light bodied with a soft, almost creamy, texture from the yeast. Fine fizzy carbonation. Really solid Hefe, can’t really pick on this one at all.

Hazed gold pour, fluffy white head. Typical of a good Hefe, it has banana clove and some bubblegum.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and spice. Taste is wheat, malt, yeast, spice, and some banana. Nice Hefeweizen.

330ml can from Hop Hideout, Nether Edge -Cloudy golden yellowbody with a large lasting white head. Nose is soft bubblegum wheat, banana and a hint of clove. Flavour is wheat, light banana, light clove and some yeasty notes with a lightly sweet finish. Nice soft and efficient.

Solid wheat beer, easy drinking. Would have liked more aroma to come through from the yeast used.

jrodooo5 (1369) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Really nice aroma & decent pour but lacks in the flavor department. Love the banana & spicy aroma. Cloudy golden pour w/ a white head & good lacing. The taste is a little dry & finishes abruptly. Solid beer overall but not my favorite style!

EarlofPDX (3) - - OCT 5, 2015 does not count
Bought a 22 Oz bottle for $3 and I thought it was a great beer for the price. I drank out of a pint glass and the beer resembled shock top but didn’t like Oranges at all. It had a more banana sweetness. I think it lacked carbonation which effected the feel & more then taste.

Bomber. Unclear golden yellow, mostly fading white foam. Aroma of yeast, hef spices and banana. Lean wit malt taste, yeast, some citrus, a bit thin. Softer carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Slightly fruity and a bit of yeast. Earthy and light grain/wheat. High carbonation with a light metallic finish. Good on a warm day but not that full of flavor.

Not bad. True to style. Served with almost no head. Flavor’s dominated by carbonic tang. Could be richer.
