4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
22oz.....I’ve had many Hef’s, but for some reason this is my favorite. Great banana, clove, citrus, hoppy. I always add a lemon to my Hef, and with this beer I think it’s a must. Really a unique taste that explodes onto your pallet and is followed by a smooth citrus aftertatse. If there is one this to critique, it’s the head and carbonation. It could use a little more of both, however I dont think it takes away from the beer. Highly recommended if your stuck in the realm of Pyramid or Widmer. Or even if you have had your fill of Paulaner, this is a great option. Anyone know where I can get this on-tap ?

Nice amount of unfiltered (or poorly filtered) yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Delicious flavor all around.

4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy uncarbonated dark yellow colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and banana. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of malt and banana. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. Very true to style with a stong banana content.

This hefeweizen is light and refreshing. Citrus notes in the middle replace the banana and bubble gum flavors so prevalent in the style. This pushes El Jefe solidly into the category of American wheat beer. It's probably my second favorite American wheat beer, behind Boulevard Wheat.

Pours a hazy yellow/amber with a white ingering head. Smells of citrus, coriander, bubblegum, banana. Tastes tarte and citrussy with some spicy elements and some grassy hints on the finish.

Average size head, white. Body is cloudy and golden. Aroma is fantastic, lots of wheat, citrus, grapefruit, lemon and orange. Also, corriander, pepper and banana burst onto the nose. Medium body, some sweetness of banana and nice spices back this one up. Nice spice mix, cloves and corriander merge into the malt for an enjoyable hefe.

I didnt expect much from the El Jefe-weisen but was pleasently suprised. I actually immediately went back and got antoher one. Very smooth pour and cloudy. Great tasete and goes down very nice.

22 oz bomber. Very cloudy deep yellow beer with a thick lasting white head. Huge banana aroma, some faint spice, sweet and fruity. Flavour is also mostly banana, light clove/coriander. Very yeasty and full-bodied with a nice creamy texture. Refreshing and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Rose and Raindrop. This new brew from hales also comes in a 22oz bottle. Pours a faintly hazy yellow gold with a medium white head. Very estery aroma, notes of banana, clove, pear and orange. Taste was very similar, a bit of sweetness up front with a yeast ester finish, very mild bitterness, but very balanced, with a light sourness to the finish.
