Wonderful creamy flavor with some banana, vanilla and spice coming through. Mostly clove though. Cloudy yellow in color. Nose is a bit spicy with more of the clove aroma shining through. Overall this is a pleasure to drink. It actually reminds me more of a wit than a hefe. Good stuff!

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.

On tap served into a weizen glass. Initially, I thought I picked up notes of blueberry, peach, and even some yeast on the nose, but after awhile, the standard banana and clove dominant, with a hint of lemon. It pours a hazy pale with a thick, creamy white head that retains well and leaves lots of micro bubble lace. the beer is a blend of medium-light sweetness and a very light bitterness along with a trace amount of sour citrus. The beer is light bodied with a thin, watery texture. It kinda has the feel of a watered down lemonade. It’s very crisp, and clean with a low amount of soft carbonation - very refreshing summer session type beer. In the mouth, it’s mostly a banana and caramel taste that finishes with a faint orange rind and leaves a mild bubblegum aftertaste which doesn’t last long.

On tap at Disneyland. Pours a golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Good aroma of wheat and bannana. Very refreshing and drinks smooth. Very nice after a long hot day.

On Tap: A very average hefe. Thought it was a good example, but kind of weak and sterotypical. Bannanas, wheat, cloves, bubble gum, were the flavors and aromas. I agree that it was drinkable but kind of boring.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: traditional average gold color, very hazy, has a small off white head
Aroma: very funky, banana, yeast, bread, very aromatic
Taste: lemon, some light bitterness, very strong banana and bread,
Palate: average to soft carbonation, very nice hefe froth, banana mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste
Overall: one of the better hefeweizen beers I've had, very strong flavors and aromas, highly recommended, from a draft pour which I'm sure explains the lack of head

Appearance was cloudy gold with diminishing creamy white fizzy 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are banana, clove, bubblegum, soft grain, and cream. Taste are soft clove, wheat, banana, bubblegum with hints of pear and lemon. Palate was soft fizzy CO2 with light body, then fruity traditional smooth finish. A good American Hefe, summer delight.

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