COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style wheat beer has a hazy yellow appearance due to the yeast that remains in the beer. The aroma is clove-like with hints of banana. Hop bitterness is very low. The palate is slightly sweet but soft, again, showcasing the clove-like and banana flavor.
Hops:Hallertau

Serving type: on-tap Appearance- A Nice Hefe cloudy golden orange yellow with a white head that disappeared very quickly, almost no lacing. Aroma- A typical hefe smell of citrus, wheat and clove T/P- The Taste is very light for a Hefe. There were no real strong flavers that came out of it. It was well balanced of wheat and clove, with a nice citrus undertone. Overall- This was a typical standard Hefe. It was very tasting and I would defiantly get it again, so On that not the drink ability was high. There is just nothing remarkable about it, but if you like wheat beers than defiantly do not pass this one up.

Tap, as Hue Hefeweizen. Pours cloudy yellow amber with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is lemon, wheat, clove and banana. Perhaps a bit too much clove and not enough banana Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, no bitterness at all. Medium bodied and creamy. Not a bad effort.

From sampler at the brewpub, Los Gatos, CA, 17/08/12 (as "Hue Hefe"). Rabbit piss looks with a white disc of head. Good banana shrimp, clove and candy aroma. Spicy and biscuity with banana and clove notes. Almost still; faintly tingling. Pick of the samplers.

Very hazy golden yeast color. Strong banana aroma with a hint of clove. Banana predominates in the flavor, with strong spice and a carbonated mouth feel. An unusually strong-flavored hefe.

Pyobon (893) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 (on tap) Opaque dark amber. Nice aroma; mainly bananas. Soft pleasant mouthfeel from plentiful gentle carbonation. Flavour starts with citrus notes and develops through a richer banana phase and finishes with some spicy bitterness. Overall a great hefe.

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy yellow with a nice white froth. No lacing. Aroma is bubblegum, banana oil, and light cloves. Flavor is just about identical. Too much bubblegum for me, tastes kinda like artificially flavored banana candy. Medium-thin body, nice effervescence.
