shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2008
On tap at the Brewery. Light lemony aroma with some yeast character. The flavor is also slightly lemony and fresh. Very easy to drink and refreshing on such a hot and sunny day.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2007
6 ounce draught sample at the Vermont Brewer’s Fest (July 2007). Opaque bright gold with just a bit of head....assertive, dry, spicy aroma with light clove and banana but mostly lots of fresh bready wheat tartness....the body is quite full and thickly malty, even heavy at first but at the same time the wheaty sourness refreshes, the banana-bread character is fulfilling and the lightly tart-berry notes at the finish are lovely....I don’t know what I got out of this that everybody else didn’t, but this was really a pleasant surprise for me. Well done!

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2007
Vermont Brewers Fest ’07. Pale yellow/cloudy beer. Soapy aroma up front. Light spice and a bit of peach but no banana character. Heavily carbonated with very faint light clove. A bit of wheatiness. Thin/gassy beer with more soapy flavour on the back. Meh. A definite low point on the days tastings.

Glouglouburp (5944) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Cloudy yellow with a long-lasting big creamy white head. The nose is barn/leather, banana & pils hops. Nice round body with a fruity (banana and more) and sweet taste. Yeast character is a bit cheesy. Tasting sample at Burlington beer fest 2006. Average hefe, more like a hill top than a high peak.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2005
07.13.05 Tap at brewpub. Murky, clouded orange-gold. Ample froth. Light banana, heavier clove, little citrus. Reminds of Weihenstephan but even fuller bodied. Very nice on a 90 degree day in a town with no AC.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of banana esters and bubble-gum, very classic of a hefe. The body is medium with a creamy texture. This is a good, classic hefeweizen.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Very cloudy and amber. Aroma is clearly the distinctive clove/banana of a hefe. Aroma also was of mild yeast and citrus. Plenty of wheat flavor and a sour/yeasty bite. Finish is short and slightly sour. OK hefe, but not great. Worth doing again.

CapFlu (4469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewfest. Hazy pale body with nearly no head. Nose of sour citrus. Flavour was eqaully tart and lemony. Below average.

DYCSoccer17 (3299) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Very sour aroma, grains, and lemons. Very hazy pale yellow/orange color. Not very appealing. Sweet, grainy slightly astringent start. Pleanty of wheat, but lots of sourness. Not much in the way of banana flavors. This guy doesnt jive for me at all.
