Tap. A very nice hefe. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Nice strong aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The taste follows through big time. Great balance, with both the clove and banana yeast esters shining on their own. A nice lemony finish.

~Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. ~Scent is banana fruity. ~Flavor is banana, yeasty and spicy. A bit watered down. ~Feels light and fluffy. ~This is good, unfortunetly taste is a bit "mellow yellow".

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Served cold on tap at Universal Studios brewery. Opaque golden color with a small white head that left good lacing. The aroma was clove and bananas, and the taste was equally clove and banana. I was hoping for a bit more banana and a little less clove, but it was a pretty good hefeweizen.

on tap at Karl Strauss, C+ beer at the most. Their pilsener that I sampled alongside was much better.

Smells mediumly of bananas. Flavor is quite wheaty with some coatingness to it that I also don’t like. Much too wheaty for me with a bad aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 On tap at California Pizza Kitchen in Wetwood, CA. Pours a hazy dark gold. Small white head with good lacing. Aroma is of banana esters, clove and vanilla. Taste is sweet wheat, with banana foster ala mode. Creamy body fizzy bubbles. Good solid hefe.

Tap, downtown. Some yeastiness in the nose. Fairly dry. Graininess seems to dominate along with a little spice.

Not one to be missed. Immediate hints of banana and citrus. Medium body for a hefe, smooth finish. Seems to be hit or miss in terms of batches.
