Smells pretty darn good. Lightly of bananas. The flavor is nice too; light and fruity, yet just a hint of soapy notes that brings it down a tad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap-pours bright hazy orange with a small fizzy white head nose is banana band aid, and bubblegum. huge flavors of bubblegum band aid and slight hot garbage-fairly phenolic and musty with lots of soggy grain flavors. decent and solid but not a top condender for american made hefe for sure. New Glarus runs circles around this beer! cool i got to try it though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy on the lemons in the aroma with some yeast as well. The flavor is lemon/citrus with some bananas in the background. For an American take on the style, this was relatively authentic, a little different due to the lemons being stronger than the bananas and a good beer all around.

Banana fruit aroma. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance hoppy and smooth on the palate with a hint of dryness in a malt finish.

Tony Roma’s sampler platter on tap in Mission, San Diego. Colour: Cloudy light orange. Nose: Bubble gum, tangerines, cream soda...a sweet delight, but a weizen? I’m skeptical.... Taste: Sweet wheat entrance...ah theres the bubble gum all over the middle body, leading to a sugary grain finish. A sweet treat!.....for those who like that sort of thing. Great looking and nice mouth feel on the plus side.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. bland, grainy, not much else going on.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a very hazy golden orange color with a mild white head.
S: The nose is quite spicy with plenty of clove. There’s a slight citrus aroma along with some sweet wheat.
T: The flavors mimic the nose for the most part, with perhaps an even more intense spice character. The cloves are domineering and there isn’t much else to balance it out (other than a heavy sweetness). Minimal banana esters but not enough to save the beer.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.
D: This beer was overly sweet and just not all that good overall. I was not impressed and don’t plan on having this again.

16oz glass on tap at Stone brewery,This is a good hefe. Pours a hazy orange with white head. Bread, sweet malt, banana, a bit of sourness, clove, spice, and nutty wheat. Nice easy drinking beer. Well done.

Citrus wallops the tongue, catapults off of your nose, then does a swandive into your brain. This hefe is swamped with notes of orange and vanilla. Chopped bananas are also prevelant, as the aftertaste lacquers your mouth with the fruit. There is also a strange flavor similarity to eggnog, especially with the blipping occurances of what seems like cream and spice. A sunset color, marked by its rich unfiltered interior, is the final description to a pretty damn good hefeweizen.

On a guest tap at Stone Brewing in Escondido. Really one of the better American hefeweizens I’ve had, with a nice yellow-orange cloudiness to the banana esters present in the taste. Another brewery whose beer I’ve never seen on the East Coast, I’d certainly like to drink more of this one as the summer warms up.
