A nice easy drinking & refreshing beer typical to its style. I drink it regularly and enjoy it very much.

tap in april ’09 at the brewery under the name "In-Heat Hefe" pretty straightforward: banana,clove, and slightly mint aroma, taste is heavily grainy, bubblegummy, banana. malty, light aftertaste.

Draft at the brewery. Usually at a brewery I find that their common Hefe is actually an "American Wheat" and isn’t worth a heap of spent malt. But this one suprised me. Some real Banana and clove aromas. Bubble gum on the flavor that turned more clove like as it warmed. I really enjoyed this one... Surprisingly.

Tap @ Brewery. Decent Banana aroma along with some sourness. Hazy Yellow body with white head. Had a zesty citrus banana and vanilia flavor. Mild soapy aftertaste on the palate. Decent hefe.

The Nimbus hefeweizen (on tap at the brewery) was a cloudy bright yellow with a respectable white head, and it had that soapy, vegetable smell with a tail of lemon. The taste is incredibly sweet, fruity, yeasty, and wheaty--substantially flavored and yet very crisp. I could notice a strong floral quality about the beer, but there was enough citrus and spice to keep things from turning too bitter/gross.

Growler - Pours a cloudy light golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Aroma is light yeast, esters (banana), and spice. Flavor is light banana and yeast. Has a light bitterness. Light body. Palate was a little watery even for a Hefe. Still, a decent Hefe.

Now I hate to say it, but this is Nimbus’s worst beer. Not a good ’hefe. Waaaaay to sweet, and leaves your lips smacking. A decent flavor, but the aftertaste just kills it.

Not my favorite style by any stretch but what seems to me to be a solid attemt by Jim and Co. Medium brown-amber and a moderate white head which dissipated for me. Decent wheaty (duh) malty flavor, nice smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth but not clean.

This beer is a pale cloudy straw color. It has a white head which is fairly persistent. Smells lightly spicy, a little bit of fruitiness, and as it warms up it goes from smelling of clove to smelling of banana. The first tastes is a bit of clove, and a light sweetness. There is not perceived bitterness, and it finishes with a bit of a carbonic bite. As the beer warms up the banana flavors come to the forefront. A nice easy drinking & refreshing beer.
