JPDIPSO (5318) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016

tmoreau (3423) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Shared swing topped liter bottle, poured to snifters showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a fluffy layer of white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light grain/wheat, some ripened banana, citrus as orange, and light spice. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar to the aroma notes, with more pronounced clove, some booze, and a bit of tartness. Appreciated how the orange perked up the banana notes.

RhetoricalAns (766) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Draft. Dark orange gold pour, good white head, long retention. Nose is banana, citrus, some wheat. Similar in taste, banana and citrus. If it had more of spicy clove presence would of thought it was a straight up great Hefe. As is still pretty good.

slowrunner77 (8999) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 18, 2015
strong in aroma and flavor, but drank like a good flavorful hefe, not a nearly 8% weizen bock. Bubble gum, banana and clove abound, in that order. Refreshingly complex.

VinegarStroke (365) - Napa, Alabama, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle: hazy, golden, light head and no lace. Very lifted, estery, fruity, banana, yeast & spice. Reasonably dry, fresh but not sour and moderate to moderately high bitterness. Good weight and depth of flavor. Like the flavor and aroma but just a little heavy and sweet. Slightly more CO2 might help.

monk191 (1601) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
A quite good hef. Pours an ugly orange with a thin white head. Smells of wheat, peach and honey. Taste is quite nice, lots of peach and honey and a sweet wheat finish. Paired with blue cheese raspberry salad, the peach is brought out extensively. Quite nice. Had in the bottle.

Mora (15) - West Milford, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Nice two inch head. Nice amber color. Mild wheat aroma. Very mild and crisp taste in your mouth. A little bitter going doing with a nice wheat after taste.

The beer pours a hazed dark golden-orange with a long lasting white head. Aroma is wheat, clove, banana, and citrus. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet and spicy with notes of wheat and bubblegum.
