Leinenkugles brought this out and we got to try it at lunch.
Nice Hefe golden in color, and hazy. Tasty strong hefe flavors and finish.

Doesnt taste like a hefeweizen at all. Marks off for that but tastes like fruit loops. Not bad but not what I was expecting and too much will give you a stomach ache.

This is a very bad beer that tastes nothing like a hefeweisen beer. It is very sour and vomitlike with no complexity and generates acid stomach an hour or so after drinking it. I would not recommend it to anyone. It is from one of the most overrated Wisconsin brewers around. basement aromas, medium sourness, oily feel, average carbonation, astringent finish, vomitonous flavor.

One of my favorite hefeweizens. Nice golden appearance and hits the palate like AJ Hawk hits a RB.

Heavy dose of cloves and wheaty sweetness but the orange peel factor seems overdone. I like its dry palate. For a retired beer, this one seemed to withstand time. Coopers in Scranton, PA has it on bottle. I really liked this one despite the maker!

An OK attempt at the German Hefeweizen beer style. Most likely the best by an American brewer, but still not as good as the real McCoy. First things, first. Bananna in beer? Hmmm, interesting, but make it a little bolder and it could be dynamic (if you like banannas I guess)

Sampled on tap. This beer pours to a dense creamy thin white head that sits atop a lightly hazy light golden body. The aroma is nicely wheaty. Nutmeg or mace. Light banana’s foster. The flavor is white and richly banana’s foster. Unknown spice. Light toastiness. The palate is medium light bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Not too bad and very drinkable despite the low scores.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 This has more in common with a pale lager than a hefe. Weak yellow pour, sluggish carbonation, and faint aroma. Absolutely nothing like a hefe should be. Poorly done. Just avoid.
UPDATE: I see they "retired" this. All I can say is....thank the gods!

a dull yellow color w/ a strong head and decent carbonation.. the outstanding scent ot me was bannana and grass... it was actually quite good as the banana flavor stood out to me as being different.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lienes Fest: Filtered clear yellow with a lemony soda nose. Bubbly carbonation and thin body. Lemon and thin wheatiness, grassiness. No Hefe to speak of on initial taste, but as it warms some banana esters sneak through.
