3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at North Wales. Proper cloudy yellow appearance. Flavor is peppery with some banana fruit, turning over the middle into a more fruity, syrupy banana and corn and wheat flavor. Faint dusty yeast nose, with some faint but nice creamed bananas. Medium frothiness, nearly dry on the palate, and just a little bit tart in the finish.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Draft, at IH Media. Poured cloudy orange with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of wheat, and clove. Flavor is banana, wheat and yeast, with faint spice. Very approachable and enjoyable, but it lacked the full, spicy notes of other hefe’s.

Okay 2 for 2 today TRAIN Wrecks. Poured a clody golden color with small head good lacing though. Aroma was lemons and other citrus some spices. Flavor was much the same some wheat did show up late in the beer.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2007
On tap @ Newark-Poured a cloud yellow color w/a decent white head. Sweet, spiced aroma. Fresh, almost Belgian flavor of wheat, grass, cane sugar, yeast, & citrus. Very fresh flavor, quite enjoyable. This is what a Hefeweizen should be all about; a crisp, clean, fresh, cloudy, easy drinking summer beer. This one hit the mark.

This was an interesting make of this style beer. I liked it but it was unlike any hefe I have ever had. Pours your standard hazy gold. Banana and clove were present like they are in most, but it just seemed to dominate the aroma, especially the clove. The flavor lightens up a little bit, but it was different. This wasn’t really a bad thing though.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2006
This brew treads the line between german wheat and belgian wheat, though closer to the former. Cloudy, wheaty color closer to a wit. Musky, clovy aroma with a scintilla of banana, though clove dominates the flavor. One of the more enjoyable german wheats I have had the pleasure to experience.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad: Hazy yellow, white head, large lacing. Nose is sulphuric, herbal esters, lightly metallic. The flavor is nutty, more carammely, but still a bit tart and fizzy. I like the maltiness but dislike the sharp bitterness and acidity.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2006
RBSG DC 2006: Cloudy straw-yellow colored body with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet banana, yeast, and cloves. Taste is lightly tart & sweet wheat, light cloves, lemon, though the focus is clearly on the wheat and yeast flavors.
