The draft pout came titled a wheat, but it was a german hefeweizen and pretty darn good one at that. I came in the glass a hazy light butterscotch with a medium white head and moderate lacing. Banana and clove nose with some citrus notes. Medium body and slick mouthfeel. Flavor is banana, clove, and light citrus, and lots of clove in the finish. Well done.

after4ever (6113) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Cloudy lemony yellow with light gray head and lace. Steady rising carb even in a very narrow tasting glass. Nice sweet banana nose. Mild, somewhat fizzy body, but very pleasantly drinkable. Wheat sourness really takes the stage on the mid-palate and the beer showcases it perfectly. Interesting mild spicy clove toward the end. Clean, slightly yeasty finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2009
Tap@Brewpub. Banana aroma with citrus notes. Cloudy, pale yellow colour, white head, good lace. Light sweet to sweet in the finish, light bitter, fruity but not really banana nor citrus. Light bodied, lightly sparkling. OK brew but not exceptional.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Had this on tap at the LaConnor pub. Specifically requested this without a lemon. Came with a lemon. "That’s the way we server it", said the waitress. Whatever! Absolutely no head. Nice cloudy yellow color in the appropriate type glass. At least this one wasn’t frosted (see my review of the IPA). Completely flat on the palate, but with a decent taste for the style. I didn’t finish it.

german hef? this is so clear, i would figure it a kristal. close enough. super clear light yellow/gold. minimal head, soft aromas of lemon and wheat, i cannot find anything else there. dusty and soft, very easy drinking, though fairly simple and one dimensional. certainly not a bad beer or unflavorful one, just kinda plain.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2011
Cloudy and gold. Malt sweetness had notes of white cake and yeast. Moderate amount of hops showcased an herbal zing. Estery hints of banana and clove. Tingly and refreshing up front, but then it becomes sticky and somewhat cloying in the finish. Decent wheat.

8/18/2007: LaConner Wheat was server with a wege of lemon that I did not use. The is hazy to cloudy and very pale yellow in color with a thin white head. It definitely appears to be unfiltered. The aroma is citrusy with a slight bit of acidity to it. The flavor is light with lemon/citrus, toasted malt, and a light and mild hoppiness in the finish. The beer is medium-light in body and is smooth and mellow with fine carbonation bubbles. Overall this beer was drinkable but nothing too terribly exciting...

Draught (5% ABV) at LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, Washington. Rating #7 for this beer...

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2008
6/28/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is too sweet, with no classic German phenolics coming through. Appearance is clear yellow with a moderate maintained white head. Flavor is simple wheat malt, with classic light sourness and sweetness and nearly no bittering. Mouthfeel is spritzy and tangy with medium/light body. Overall, refreshing, but the complexity is way, way too low for a German hef.
