If you dream of wheat this brew will get your toes tapping. Since 1995 we have brewed Bavarian style wheat beers exclusively for the same great state that grows and malts our own Wisconsin wheat. In a world full of posers this is a true hefe-weizen naturally 100% bottle fermented and hazy.

Expect this beer to cascade effervescent into your glass. The rich spicy clove and cinnamon notes will greet your nose while sweet fruit and wheat kisses your lips.

Lick the foam from your mouth and admit sometimes you just gotta get up and dance.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Cloudy yellow with a thin head. Aroma was pronounced banana and clove. This one was sharp and sweet with the typical wheat beer flavors of banana, clove and spices. The flavor was very robust and not bland like some wheat beers can be. The clove and spices stay with you for the entire beer, not like some that will tend to fade a bit as it warms. Definitely one of the better hefeweizens Iíve had and an American one at that.

Slightly cloudy yellow gold appearance, very thin smoky head. Smells like banana nut bread: bananas, pecans, cinnamon, maybe nutmeg? Flavor is not the chemical dullness I always notice in hefeweizens...this one has a nice spicy note that really brings out the banana. Itís almost sour, like tasting an unripe banana. Mouthfeel is as expected...average but with a touch of light body that I associate with most wheat-based beers. Really a drinkable beer to say the least. I agree with the previous rater: this IS the best hefeweizen Iíve had.

12 oz bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Hazy golden in color with a lasting off white head. Aroma is great with wheat, spice and banana, very fresh and balanced. Taste is extremely well balanced between banana, spice, wheat, and a nice honey sweetness. medium to full bodied for the style. Extremely well balanced, flavors are very bright and fresh. I think this may be the best hefeweizen Iíve had.

Bottle courtesy after4ever. Thanks! Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of fruit, wheat and lemons. Light body and active carbonation. Lemon and fruit taste with a touch of spice. Lightly sour finish. Nice, but I miss the bananas.

12-oz. Thanks, MrFacto! Pours cloudy medium gold with a towering, rocky white head. Candied lemon on the nose. Medium, slightly grainy body with moderate carb. Mid-palate has nice lemon sourness (wheaty?) and then tangy banana and clove for a sweet, somewhat lingering finish. This is a very well made and fresh-tasting proper hef. This needs more attention from everyone.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 NG is present in Wisconsin liquor stores, and it is worth the drive and boder crossing, but I have never seen this. The NBH afforded me one. This is what German hefeweizen tasted like in Munich. Really fresh clove and bana flavor. Where can I get more?

Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of wheat and fruit. Nice wheat flavor with some fruit hints in the finish. I thought this was a 5% brew. I was wrong. Big thanks to KingpinIPA for trading me this!

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Bottle (original bottle courtesy of KingpinIPA - rerate 6-29-16). Banana, clove, orange and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow with large head. Sweet ripe banana, orange, clove, wheat malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Nice body. Spectacular - seems to be maltier now.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Cloudy, sunset yellow-orange body. Small, frothy off-white head that settles slowly to a bubbly, foamy rim. Minimal spotty lacing. The aroma shows freshly peeled bananas, clove, cinnamon, orange rind, and a faint hint of bubblegum. Fresh cut wheat is present in the background. Banana and lemon chiffon battle each other for top billing in the flavor. While there is no decisive victor, the combination of the two is fantastic. Clove, nutmeg, and various other dark spices add depth. The palate was much more substantial than what I am used to for a Hefe. Feels significant in the mouth. Clean, pleasantly fruity finish. Best Hefe Iíve had to date, by a long shot. Fantastic.
