COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here is our "Wheat Beer with Yeast." Beers brewed with a high proportion of wheat yield a crisp and refreshing flavor profile, while the addition of our special yeast adds a blend of complex citrus and spice flavors...forget the lemon wedge, this Hef' has plenty of flavor!

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow, with a fluffy white head. Aroma is banana, bit of spicy yeast. Taste is wheat at thfront, not quite as crisp and clean as it could be - spicy yeast and banana showing up at the very beginning as well. Banana isn’t dominant, but does taste a bit artificial. Finish is fairly clean, a bit spicy. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, medium to a bit heavier than medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

Lt amber, cloudy, with a white head. A light aroma of yeast and spice. The taste had some banana and vanilla with hints of citrus but was not very complex. I thought this was an OK wheat beer.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Smells zesty, faintly of citrus and very light hefe/wheat scent. Taste is mild yet refreshing and pleasant. Not an amazing hefe, but certainly refreshing on a hot day

blipp (6265) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Spicy aroma with clove and nutmeg, as well as a light fruity sweetness. Body is a bit watery. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma, pretty dissapointing actually, with general fruit and spice notes. Not bad, but it could be much better.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Had on tap at the brewery. Picked up an aroma of grains and citrus. Had a nice head that disapated quickly. Had a nice malt texture. I found this much better made than the White Beer they offer. It was more complex and balanced.

chrissy (122) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle: Smells like bananas and taste like bananas. Very light with no strong aftertaste. Pours a yellowish color with a small white head.

cazort (549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2008
(Bottle) This was fairly heavy and rich for a Hefeweizen, but overall, pretty good and indicative of the style. I liked it a fair amount. It was fresh and there was no objectionable sourness...so perhaps the other reviewers would benefit from getting a fresher batch. Not terribly complex, but still an above-average beer, especially among beers of this style to come from American brewers.

ironchefscott (357) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2008
smells really weak and no estery aromas or clove smells....tastes kinda dry and gross finishes stale and gross and it was dated less than a month ago...don’t know if that was the experation date or production date....hopefully experation date....still it could use a lemon wedge though I should never think that for a german style hef...sorry brewandbbq...I thank you for this as an extra...but....it just did not hit the spot though many other beers you sent were great!

puboflyons (2193) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 13, 2008
From a 12 fl. oz bottle with a date and lot code of 112607 686913. Pours a yellowish-orange with a good supply of off-white head that fizzles after a few minutes. The aroma is of wheat, yeast, some citrus, and overall very clean or untouched. A rather medium mouth feel. Mild flavor that is very easy to drin and finishes slightly dry. I enjoyed it.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Very pronounced banana aroma and flavor. All in all, though, quite light on flavor. Like a banana version of wonder bread.
