Super hazy golden/orange pour with a white head. Big aromas of banana and clove. Taste is big wheat character with lots of banana and clove coming through nicely. This was an absolutely delicious brew. Great example of what a good hefe should be!

I love German Hefeís. And while I havenít yet learned to drink any beer by the liter. I could easy down several ímasí of these every time I go to the brewpub. If you find yourself at this wonderful little brewpub and you dontí try their weizen, you are missing out!

On draft at Hofbrauhaus Newport. Hazy golden with a big white head. Big yeasty aroma. Great wheat spiciness with bananas and cloves in the flavor. Extremely drinkable. Very good german hefe.

I was really impressed by this wheat style german brew. smelled strong of florals, and citrusy. It had a very orange, citrus color too. Iím not dissapointed in the taste at all. Not to much wheat in the taste. Mostly sweet and simple, but not overpowering with sweetness. Medium-bodied. I loved this beer. The best german wheat iíve had yet. I would definitely recommend to others.

Tap. Clouded yellow with a thick lasting head. Uh-oh, Iíve been spotted, some guy just came over to the bar and introduced himself, he saw my gabf shirt and my fat ass sitting here reading a book and scribbling notes, and thought I was a brewer, I told him, no just a beer geek, I think he put it all together, that I was taking notes on the beer, not the book (I was doing both, Michael Marshall Smith writes some great lines that I do note down in the other section of my notebook) he tries to lead me toward the darker beers, saying the dunkel, which I just had is the best, Iím disagreeing, this right here is just what I need after a few hours in the sun. I should have written his name down, damnnit! Aroma of burnt matches and warm lemon juice that made my mouth water a bit. Wow, this is exactly what I needed to quench that rawness in me for a bit. Nice wheat flavor that is sweet and satisfying. Light banana bread flavor is great. Slick clean finish that left sweet banana behind and an assload of clove.

Iíve had plenty 1 liter mugs of this cloudy beauty. A true session beer at 5.4 percent, the flavor is wonderful. Hints of banana and the wanginess that I love in a good German style wheat.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Draft. I donít understand the low ratings for this beer. This is as solid a Weizen as I have had. Cloudy hazy appearance with a wispy white head. Aroma of wheat and yeast with a little fruitiness. Flavors or banana, clove, and spiciness. Isnít this what a German Wheat is all about? VERY SOLID INDEED!!!!

Properly cloudy with a tall dense white head.
The nose is vibrantly full of clove at first then smooth banana. Just the right amount of malt sweetness before a tasty wheat tang in the finish. Full bodied and filling. One of the better Hefes Iíve had recently.

Draft at Newport Hofbrauhaus. Pours a very hazy yellow with a full white head. The aroma is full of bananas, cloves, yeast. The flavor is spot on for a hefe. Banana, cloves, wheat, yeast. A very clean finish. Very good for a Hefeweizen, where freshness really does count

Half liter draft - pours like light honey with rich white head and pretty lacing. Nose is banana. Flavor adds the malty wheat qualities. Sweet with a hint of bitterness. I canít wait for November so I can have their weizenbock for my birthday! I havenít had a good Hefeweizen in a while and this might make me look for more.
