Bebum (405) - - MAR 1, 2015
Pale gold with green reflection, hazy, tall white, lasting head. Light body, faint flavor, refreshing mouthfeel, avg length, balanced sweet & sour finish. Slightly sweet, pleasant sharpness more than balances that, practically no bitterness. Delicate flavors, bready, citrus, malt, yeasty, Bland but pleasant, perfect digestive for a summer lunch of wurst on a patio. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden yellow color with a very thick haze cloud that has lots of sediment floating around. There is a thick white head that left plenty of lacing around the glass. Aroma is banana, coriander, cloves, and some spices. The taste is more of the same with some prickliness from the carbonation. The predominant flavor I am picking up is the spices in this beer. The mouthfeel is on the medium side. This is a great beer for the style that I recommend you try.

A bit more watery than other hefs. O: This one is more subtle than some hefs. The flavors are a bit muted, but it’s good.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Cloudy yellow with one-inch white head and a moderate rate of decay. Aroma is lots of clove, biscuit, some spiced bread, hint of lactic. Medium body, syrupy-watery, medium-light carbonation. Slightly sweet biscuit, some clove, bit of salt, bread crust. Yummy Hefe. Nice biscuit and bread-crust notes.

harrisoni (14508) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle at Pigs Ear 2014 with a sandwich. Hazy cloudy dirty gold with lasting off white head. Yeast clove banana aroma. Ripe banana. Boy thats nice. After some ales to have a fresh german hefe. Decent spicy hop finish. It’s an odd hefe. Some spice some ripe banana some depth and character. But a huge drinkability as well. I think very interesting almost cerebral hefe. I liked it enormously. It stretched me. Like having an intelligent conversation with someone that pushes your knowledge and experience. Yes. Good.

Tastes like a traditional Hefe. Dark golden color. Very simple beer. Poured in large pint glass with minimal foam ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l Flasche. Stimmiges Weizen; gute Abstimmung im Geschmack zwischen Hefe und Weizenmalz.

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap at the Chicago Beer Society’s Umpteenth Annual Picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a decent layer of soft white head froth, and fair cling to the light lacing. The nose was banana, some additional esters as peach & orange, and light, spicy phenols as clove. Light to medium bodied, with almost too much liveliness to the carbonation, the taste added low bitterness, and slight tartness to the crisp finish. A refreshing, quaffable Hefe.

chinchill (2555) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2014
From bottle at the 2014 German Bierfest (ATL). Hazy light amber with a decent head. Light body with crisp medium plus carbonation. Light clove, typical banana, and high tartness for style. A pretty good mix of flavors but would prefer more malt and less banana.

HonusWagner (1680) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
A pretty typical Hefeweizen with the expected German estery characteristics and light sweetness. Banana flavor not as pronounced as I usually prefer, but good enough beer.
