This is one of the best American-brewed hefeweizens I have had. Similiar to Hacker-Pshorr Weizen.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy coppery yellow hue with a small lasting head and good lace. The aroma has notes of banana, clove, berry, dusty yeast esters, and bready malt. The taste has moderate citrus and banana fruit flavor with a light spice finish. The wheat and grains are noticed throughout. The mouth feel is lively yet soft. Slightly better than average American made Hefeweizen.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 On tap at the pub: The clarity of the yellow body is the only major flaw of this beer. Nice foamy white head. The aroma is of lemon grass and banana with a whiff of subtle spiciness. This is very soft in the mouth. It’s got a nice clean banana flavor with cloves and a dollop of lemony acidity. Very refreshing drink.

Hazy dark gold with a tight white head. Nice aroma is tart wheat with a whiff of clove and banana. Smooth medium body. Good flavors of tart wheat mixed nicely with a spicy citrusy sweetness. Not bad.

Cloudy straw color with a taller lasting white head. Aromas of sweet wheat and slightly over-ripe bananas, with a backdrop of light spice. Plenty of light malt and wheat in the flavors with quite a dose of yeast and bananas. Decent hefe. I usually ask that the right yeast be used and this one fits the bill.

Sample at the brewpub. Lightly hazy, honeyish look...gorgeous big banana nose with some vanilla and pepper. Big fruity flavor, lots of malt, no bitterness, perhaps a might yeasty towards the end.

actually, not too shabby. Wheaty with spiciness and banana. Prickly carbonation and a nice body. sweet and quenching. Nice.
