Appearance: extremely dark for a hefeweizen, brown, almost can't see thru the glass, little black specs floating around, big creamy beige head, cloudy Aroma: fruity, banana, very sweet smelling, cherry, molasses Taste: very frothy on the tongue, sweet, cherry, finishes with hop bitterness, Palate: not overly dry on the tongue, a bit too much hop bitterness that lingers for a hefeweizen Overall: interesting, not like most hefeweizens, I don't prefer a hop bitterness on a hefe ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy mid-brown pour, frothy pale brown head settling to about 1cm thick. Malty, yeasty caramel odours, caramel tasting with bread, lemon. Thiskcish texture, sticky - almost chewy. Good bitterness and fairly long finish

11.2oz bottle from Gomer’s Lees Summit, MO. Totally forgot I had all these. Pours a cloudy, brown-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bready malts with a bit of a caramel sweetness, citrus fruits, esters, and florals. Flavor is caramel and yeast with a light spiciness. Slightly bready with some esters, citruses, and light florals before some apples come in. Finishes with a bit of a spicy clove and a light, grassy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, I wasn’t a fan of this. Weird mix between the malts, hops, and yeast. An odd one, but looking forward to the remaining 3 in the series.

11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque brownish orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite tropical fruity heavy, with some nail polish remover, some caramel and citrus hops - quite dirty and messy smelling. Flavour of pungent citrusy hops, very bitter grapefruit peel, yeasty, but not really anything like in a hefe (no clove or banana), and some feint tropical fruits. Not so well-balanced, as the hop leave a harsh astringency. Not sure what the hell this was supposed to be.

beerguy101 (5340) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled on 5/5/2012. This IPA pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, caramel and yeasty. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and herbal. Decent carbonation. Touch of banana and clove. Yeasty esters, but not all that hefe banana and clove like. A touch of residual sweetness which intensifies as the beer warms. This one is fairly hoppy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Cloudy amber beer. Foamy off white head. Light palate, semi soft and dry. Creamy malt - soft and minerally but with a crisp trailing edge. Hops here are tame and repressed. Finishes soft and creamy. Nice.

Habanero (3437) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
Bottled: Pours slightly hazy and deep amber beer with a huge off-white head. Nose with yeast and notes of caramel and banana. Sweet flavor with spice, yeast, caramel, citrus and notes of banana. Medium bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Ends up dry and bitter with some lemon notes. A fine and quite hoppy hefe.

Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bottled. Poured cloudy, deeper orange with a well-retained whitish head.. looked good. The aroma picked up juicy orange and grassy hoppage, with dry black pepper and fruity accents.. sweet honey and darker fruits supported.. quite interesting. The flavor found prickly citrus and pine bitterness plus peppery alcohol throughout.. deep honey and toasted molasses-ish maltage at the core.. light oxidation and wheaty tartness on the finish.. a little sour at the end. Medium-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. peppery, tart, and bitter components didn’t transition too well.. alright overall.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Read-amber color; creamy head. Fruity aroma, not just the classic bananas, but also mellow yellow fruits, some mango, seeds oil, peanuts. The body is strong, the mouthfeel is quite round, due to the residual sugars still in the beer; there is a strong spicy yeast action, with bitter oranges; a lot of fruity and resiny hops, the final is very bitter.
One of the least typical Hefeweizen, very pleasant though; a crossover of styles (Hefeweizen and American Pale Ale).

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 Oct. 2011. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has grass, hay, lemony citrus and yeasty bready malts. The flavor is more grass, bready malt, yeast and lemony citrus. Some bitterness at the back. This is probably a touch old but, overall, still decent.
