Nice pour, somewhat amber for a hefe, with a medium creamy white head. Really nice aroma for a wheat, can’t believe I can actually smell some hearty wheat malt, just the right amount of clove, lots of fruit and the banana is very faint. First taste is bitter and lots of alcohol followed by some spiciness, pepper and caramel ripe-banana. Yeasty / bubblegum finish. Lots of depth for a wheat. Balanced, but rather unique. Extremely smooth body and carbonation. This is a hearty wheat ale with a nice American twist.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bomber. Courtesy of Alexsdad06, thanks Brad! Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sudsy offwhite head that disapated to a small ring. Nose of clove, wheat, orange and mild sweetness. Initial taste is of banana and clove moving into a more dominant yeast and wheat character. Finish is mildly sweet with retaining the yeasty wheat characteristics and mild hops. Palate duration is average. Light to medium body.

thedm (5615) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy no visible carbonation dark orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was malty orange peel and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and breads. An OK brew just nothing special.

Bottle at Joes, thanks to someone. Very wheaty with some caramel sweetness. Spices round out the mellow flavors. I would like some more to rate again.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Solid freaking wheat beer with some banana/clove/orange elements but nothing extreme which makes for a well crafted and fine hefe. An easy session beer with a swig of hops, medium texture, and balance.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bottle from Joe and served in my basic hefeweizen glassware: Very hazy golden hue with a mostly lasting white frothy head but not much lace. The aroma has notes of clove and pepper esters, light banana and lemon zest, wheat bread and some mineral vapors.

The taste is yeast and wheat driven with fruit and spice in support. What kept this down is a out of place wine-like sourness and a hint of a medicinal aftertaste. The mouth feel is sprite and aggressive but not all that refreshing sadly. A bit metallic on the finish. While hardly a bad bier, there have been better examples of the genre coming out of America (namely Piece and New Glarus). Worth a try if available.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Poured into a hefe glass. Cloudy dark gold and orange with a slight off white head. The aroma was strong with over ripe bananas and light clove. There was also some cinnamon toast. The taste has banana bread with some light clove. There are also some notes of vanilla in the finish. A decently made hefe, but it’s a little heavy in the body for the style.
