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

On tap at the brew pub. Easily the best offering they had last night. Yeasty, with notes of coriander,cloves, banana and bubble gum. One of the best Hefe’s I’ve had at a brew pub, as well as one of the better ones from the West Coast.

Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy gold with a creamy head. Big clove, banana, and bubble-gum aroma. The flavor has nice banana and spice going on, with a little sweetness and low bitterness. Light and has ample carbonation. A nice hef; reminds me of Franziskaner, but with a little bit more hef yeast character. this was a big surprise, as I wasn’t too impressed with their other beers. Well done along traditional Bavarian lines. A definite notch above most other brewpub hefs that I’ve coma across.

Draft. Hazy straw color with a whitish head. Low wheat and malt flavor. Wheat flavor with some clove and banana. Medium body. Lingering spice/wheat. Nice balance. Not bad. Best beer of their’s that I had.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2007
One of the two beers that I actually remember having here. Very clovey and banana aroma. Pours yellowish and hazy with a small head. Flavor is strong banana, clovey esters etc. Pretty standard German Hefe. Pretty thin and very drinkable.

Decent hefeweizen with good ester profile. Lots of flavor to this guy, unlike most of their other beers. I would order it again.

The appearance is very cloudy with a white head, as a good hefe should be. Strong banana and citrus aroma. I really like a good hefe, but this seemed lacking to me. There description mentioned a bubblegum overtones. Maybe that played a part in my mind, but I thought it was just ok.

Tap. Hazy golden color with a laced white head. The aroma has lemon, banana, coriander, and orange peel. The best beer they had on tap.

(Tasting notes from Fall 2000): Sweet and mild, unfiltered. Banana shows through lightly. A well-done hefe.
