Just had a sampler at the Kona Brewery, but enjoyed it very much. It’s your traditional German Hefeweizen with the banana taste. It’s remarkably similar to Flying Dog In Heat Wheat, and Ram/Big Horn Brewing’s Hefeweizen. You might not be blown away, but if you like a nice hef, you can’t go wrong.

Honest its a pretty decent representation of the style, hitting the clove and banana notes pretty well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

piscator34 (2345) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
On draft at the brewpub. Hazy rose-gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of lemon, cream of wheat breakfast cereal, and rosewater. Flavors are of light malted wheat, lemon peel, vanilla, and dirty roses. Medium bodied and ever-so-slightly tongue coating. Decent, but a bit unrefined.

A very nice hef, lots of banana and lemon. Definitely uses a dunkel yeast. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells of banana and lemon. Taste is lots of banana, lemon and spices. Very refreshing. Had on tap at the taproom on Oahu.

Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Hazy orange color with a small to mid-size white head. Yeast, some fruity sweetness, banana and some wheat in the aroma. The flavor is yeast, mild bitterness, wheat and malt. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (1626) - Nevada, USA - AUG 8, 2015
A foggy orange and very little head. Bubblegum and clove aromas. Medium body, highly carbonated. Not a fan of the clove and wheat flavors. Germany has no need to worry.
