Nice German Hefe Weizen. Does not have the over powering banana flavor that many hefe weizens do. Slight banana flavor with clove.

A relatively light, clean hefeweizen, very well-executed. Moderate banana aroma, without being too estery, a few hints of spice. I thought this was among the best examples of an American brewery’s attempt at emulating the hefeweizen style. Not the most complex beer, but smooth and easy drinking, and very enjoyable.

Hazy straw yellow body, no head, no lacing. Orange peel, wheat, banana, and clove. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, mild finish. Ok.

NielsenRatings (8279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with weihenweizen. Pours a hazy/cloudy yellow orange appearance with a spritzy white head that doesn’t have the best retention. Tons of spices, banana bread, lots of clove, somewhat herbal effervescent aroma that is quite nice. Slightly sweet wheat, very chewy herbal, tangy spicy, clove, nutmeg flavor. Very nice American-made Hefeweizen.

From tap at Local 44. Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is estery and light fruity. Bitter and light spiced to herbal wheaty into the finish. Ends dry and medium bitter.

DrSilverworm (5054) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12oz bottle, from Country Fresh. $1.69. Mildly hazy darker golden color. Thin bubbly white head. Loudly fades to minimal / nothing. Medium body. Pronounced carbonation. More dry finish. Light brown, lighter vanilla in the flavor. Light metallic. Little bitter taste, not very sweet. Light cheap bite in the finish. Not bad, but not a great hefeweizen
