CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at LAX May 2009: Pours a hazy golden brass with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet malted wheat and banana esters with a touch of Bavarian hops. Starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation along with light wheaty sweetness, some clove spice and bready yeastiness before a slightly more bitter crisp finish. A pretty good hefeweizen.

On tap at Columbia Street brewery. Hazy yellow with nice white head. Classic sweet malt and wheat aroma. Sweet malt flavor matched nicely with wheat. Tasty Hefe rendition with good lacing.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Wheaty base, banana fruity and yeasty notes, and a hint of bubblegum. Not bad, but definitely overcarbonated. A rare "1" on palate from me.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2009
(11/2/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of wheat and banana. Sweet wheaty flavor with some bread notes, fruity esters and light spiciness and a bit of tartness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Pleasant.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 A relatively authentic Bavarian style wheat beer. Nice clove, banana, and bubblegum notes. Smooth. Not overly carbonated or heavy. A nice drinkable beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Hazy orange tinged yellow. Nose of light soapy wheat and light yeast esters. The flavor has a nice body with creamy marshmallow blended with the esters. Finishes light and nice, good. Why is it that these brewpub hefes are a large amoutn better than their other attempts at some styles?

jgb9348 (4716) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a thick, dense white head. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a very fresh yeast note - a touch of sugars too. Light to Meidum-bodied; Creamy, wheatie flavour with a good dose of light spices that leave the mouth very fresh. Aftertaste shows a little alcohol, a little fruit and a nice pungent yeast note. Overall, a respectable german hef with some nice yeast and wheat flavours, but the cool refreshing spice flavour is definitely still noticeable. I sampled this pint on draught at the LAX Terminal 7 location in Los Angeles, California on 23-June-2010.
