A very nice true to style beer. Hazy, thick head, bright yellow, served with lemon at the brewery in Kona. Heavy banana and clove nose. Nice palate, sharp and sweet and sour alternating. More bananas too.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Nice spicy nose, allspice & banana bread. Thick body, light carbonation, with a well balanced yeastiness and short, bristly finish. A nice, if very basic hefe. Still can’t hold a candle to the wonderfully spicy German examples, but among the better of the American interpretations I’ve had. Does not do much to showcase the wheat.

When I finally found the brewery(I forgot my my map and the address back at the room) I had a nice glass of Hefe. Slightly hazy golden body, white head with good lacing, banana/clove nose. Flavor of spices, banana, and wheat. Very Enjoyable.

Had on tap after a tour of the place while vacationing in Hawaii. This was one of their better beers for sure.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap at Koko Marina. This was my favorite beer at the brewpub, and the best hefeweizen I think I’ve ever tried. Poured a hazy yellow with a one finger white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Flavor had the characteristic banana/clove flavor, balanced with a lot of citrus fruit flavors. Great beer.

From the tap at the Koko Marina brewpub, poured a hazy golden color with a small head. Great fruity refreshing flavor with a quick finish.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Tap. Sweet banana/orange and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy yellow-amber color with small head. Banana/orange and wheat malt flavor. Very well made - a very good Hefe.

bobaidan (508) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours murky yellow with a big head. Aroma is wheat, banana and a hint of spice. Mouthfeel is lively with lots of carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma. This is a very good traditional German Hefe.

A good German Hef here. I was expecting it to be more in the American style without the bold yeast flavors. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the banana/clove flavors were quite apparent. Good solid refreshing Hef here.
