As Hefe and 1/2 Weizen at Monroelville location. Decent banana clove aroma, mild wheat and yeast. Some citrus and lactic tang. Medium golden amber,like butterscotc. Hazy, withthin lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with medium carbonic acidity, some banana and bubblehum. Decent sweetness and good yeasty taste, but finish is a bit harsh, with chalky bitterness and saltiness. Decent hefe but a bit harsh.

Draft. Pale straw cloudy beer with big white head. Yeasty - banana/clove aroma Yeast flavor dominated by raw wheat. Could use a bit more spice. Nice body. Clean and refreshing, just needs something to add to the wheat.

DYCSoccer17 (3306) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Originally named "Hue Hefeweizen". Sampled at Manchester, CT locale. Very faint, disappointing aroma. Notes of maltiness, but I cannot pick up the traditional clove/banana aroma. Mildly hazy straw-blonde color with no head per bartender pour. Start has some banana wheatness. Sweet and malty finish. Creamy. Not what I think of when I have a hefe.

for a start, good hefeweizens tend to be around 5.5´per cent alcohol, this was very bland and limp by comparison. not much yeast character. pleasant enough but boring

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Very hazy light hellow. Nose peppery and spicy, also oddly sour. Little yeast, banana, or bubblegum, nothing particularly hefe-ish here, just a bit of spice followed by some bland bready malts.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Not impressed with this at all, nice hazy & cloudy gold color, huge fluffly white head, great lacing around the glass, the nose was similar to that of hard-boiled egg, that unpleasantness was also represented well in the flavors, which certainly isn’t a good thing, tasted a bit sour, huge clove & coriander in the nose as well, not a whole lot of banana flavors, wasn’t as smooth as I enjoy weizens to be

Hefeweizen is the only style that I consider it acceptable to add lemon to. This one pours very heady, with a nice lemon, yeast, and coriander aroma. The taste is citrusy, yeasty, and crisp. The finish is smooth and a little sour, with banana flavor. Very complex.
