Poured cloudy minimal head. Lots of clove aroma. Taste was light sweetness, with cereal and clove flavors. Light body thin feel, soft carbonation. Great beer to drink in the hot summer months.

Pours cloudy yellow with a fast diminishing white head. Smells malty with spice. Taste is med wheat body with some spice and citrus. After taste is too thin in my opinion. A little watery. But still is "refreshing". Not too bad, but there are better out there.

12oz bottle at Dada’s in Delray. Occasionally Dada’s will have a decent craft beer selection of about 4 bottles. This was a pretty standard Hefe. Served with a lemon on the rim, which I ditched into my water, the aroma was citrusy with hints of orange peel. Pretty good but nothing out of the ordinary.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a totally opaque orange color with a small white head. A sweet grainy and lemon nose. A strong flavor of bananas, some lemon and spices. A very interesting Hefe, seems like a very traditional version. Light palate and almost no head after a bit. I like it.

translucent gold, large bubbled small white head. Nose is autolysis, light banana, citrus. More wheat early and mid, light banana and run er as well, stronger grain finish. A bit chalky in the finish, gritty even.

Aroma is a citrusy wheat with a hint of spice. Taste is strongly spice with citrusy wheat. Overall a nice balance and weizen.

12oz bottle. Just bad. Blonde, cloudy. Sharp lemon aroma. Somewhat yeasty flavor with lemon and banana. Overall a drain pour.

12oz bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellowish, small white head, nice aroma of fruits, cloves, wheat. Taste of bananas, cloves, citrus, with little wheat, and even some sweetness (a little too much for this style). Well-balanced, fizzy and bitterness on the finish, good drinkable beer. I would consider buying this by the case.

[Bottle] Pours a cloudy light golden color with a ton of foamy head. Strong hefe yeast aroma includes lots of clove and lesser amounts of bubblegum. Yeasty esters are also strong throughout the taste. Banana and nice Juicy Fruit gum flavors mix well with some vanilla and dry wheat malts. Better than expected body for the style. Lively carbonation. A pleasant surprise for sure.
