Medium-bodied, unfiltered wheat beer with a clove & banana aroma and a refreshing, tart finish. We dubbed this German-styled wheat beer Hessian as this was the name of German volunteer soldiers in the Revolutionary War. The period flags are of the Hessian towns where the soldiers originated.

Served on draft at the Raleigh location. Pours a hazy yellow with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Strong wheat in the aroma with some faint citrus notes. Kinda bland. The taste is citrus, wheat, yeast and a spicy finish. Average carbonation and thin bodied.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft wheat on the nose, a touch of yeast. Medium bodied, wheat and a bit of graininess, light musky yeast. Soft sweetness into the finish with a touch of grain and wheat. Tasty enough.

Tap at the brewpub on 2/2/08: Pours a cloudy deep golden with a clingy-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of sweet doughy German yeast and caramely malt with a touch of banana esters. Starts fairly full-bodied and malted wheaty sweet with a good balance of bready yeast and clove spice. A nicely done hefeweizen.

Hazed yellow/brown pour with creamy white head and lace. Corriander and bannanas on the nose. Clove, bannana, and a slight semi sweet maltiness. Just a bit fizzy. Very solid refreshing beer. I really liked this beer. I can’t say enough about how clean and good it was.
