CaptainCougar (7129) - 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.

Taste is similar with yeast, wheat, and banana dominating. has a medium body with a slightly watery moutfheel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a pretty good, above average hefe.

Wittales (611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 6, 2014
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.

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?

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 24, 2006
A very nice suprise, tasted on draft at Strauss Universal city. Much more flavor than I was expecting, nice fruitiness, creamy, nice on the tongue, Good example of an American brewer doing a German style hefe.
