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.

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.

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.

bytemesis (2572) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
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.
