COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional unfiltered Bavarian wheat beer with aromatic hints of banana and clove. This beer won the Bavarian Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver Colorado Staurday, September 27, 2003. It is made with up to 50% wheat malt instead of all malted barley which lends a lighter note. It is deep gold in color with a very low hop bitterness level and a dense head of white foam. It is traditionally enjoyed as the summer beer of choice in Bavaria and pairs well with appetizers, sandwiches and subs.

Bottle to glass in Tucson for lunch. The only craft option at the lunch spot. Generally bright and effervescent. Solid banana, but only faint clove.

On tap at the brewery. Cloudy amber color. Great banana and clove aroma (underneath the lemon wedge aroma on the edge). Lightly sweet. Easy to drink. Excellent.

Taster. Hazy unfiltered wheat beer. Classic light lemon notes. Very refreshing. I see why it scored well at GABF...

Could have a fluffier head otherwise this is a great German hefe! A marriage of bubblegum, banana and hefe in great balance with a clean finish. Not clothing and light. Easy drinking lawnmower hefe!

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice banana, biscuit, orange into a bit of clove, nice hints of vanilla into a bit of slight white fruit. Taste was a mix of bread, biscuit, vanilla into a bit of wheat, slight lemon into some banana, ncie clove, coriander notes, finishing slightly sweet. Best they had there.

Tastes and smells strongly like banana. Light and refreshing. Your typical basic bitch of hefes.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 3/3/14

Aroma: The aroma is wheat and lemon, with some notes of banana and clove
Appearance: Pours a murky looking yellowish color with an off-white head on it
Flavor: The taste is on-style, with wheat flavor, spice, and fruity flavors (banana, lemon, etc.)
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a soft carbonation and a clean mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I plenty solid example of a hefeweizen. It isn’t close to being a standout or a poor version, just a solid one.

Sampled at the brewpub. Hazy yellow pour with a white head, served with a lemon slice. Spice, banana, clove, grass nose and flavors. Not a bad hefeweizen, better than their other offerings I thought.
