Really muddy, looks like crap. It looked at least this bad at the brewery and I’s been avoiding it, but avoiding Kona beer in the islands is impossible so here we go. Aroma is very yeasty with some banana and light phenols. Tart, lightly phenolic and way too yeasty...the best examples don’t taste like old socks. Barely drinkable.

pretty good for a hefe...it’s got a good dose of the banana/clove things going on, but not too much. light and refreshing with a minimal hop presence. not bad."

At the brewery. Pours cloudy pale yellow. Smells of wheat, yeast and banana candy. Belgium like qualities. Taste is banana, herbal with some spice. Smooth and easy drinking. Average Hef. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (991) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy straw hue with white head that held a ring. Aroma is clove forward, melon, banana, straw, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall this is an interesting Hefe. It is reminiscent of Belgian style esters mixed in. Not bad but not great either.

Pours a cloudy golden color with plenty of white head. Light fruits, bananas and some cloves on the nose, with just a little wheat; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice yeasty note.

On tap @ the brewery in Kona. Cloudy golden topped by a dense white meringue. Beautiful banana and bubblegum aroma, classic. Zesty fresh wheaty with lovely banana flavour. Authentically executed.

Excellent example of an unfiltered Hefeweizen. Banana up front, full mouthfeel, good finish, with subtle spice.
