Tap at piece. This was really enjoyable. One of the best I had at piece. Cloudy gold color wtih a white head. Yeast, bananas, bubble gum, bread and spices lead to a really enjoyable beer. Mouthfeel is very nice and flavor is very nice indeed. Wheat, banana, honey and just a nice hint of hops. Session time!

Pour is murky yellow with some dark copper highlights. Dense snowy white head. The nose is banana followed by clove. The flavor is balanced clove to banana. Medium fluffy body with prickly carbonation. Dry chalky finish.

Medium sized foamy off white head sits atop a orangey yellow hazy body. Bit of lacing. Nose and taste is banana cloves, honey and sugar as is the taste. Mouthfeel is nice and bubbly. The finish length is short to medium. This is good and a solid hefeweizen but it does nothing new...

(10/11/08) Draught at the brewpub in Chicago. Cloudy dark orange with a small white head that falls immediately. Wheat aroma with some banana, clove and light citric hints. Sweetish wheaty flavor with fruity esters, moderate spiciness, yeasty notes, some orange and lemon hints and light tartness. Medium-bodied. Refreshing.

I took a couple of sips of TheDudes while he was dying a bit. Nice look, good smell and taste. Made me wish Piece would clean out the hipsters and the dudes crushing miller lites so I could actually enjoy the place.

Crushed with Honkeybra. Just a solid hefeweizen. All the goodness of a quality hefeweizen, with a bit of awesomeness added in. Would definitely like to try it again.

Had this brew at G.A.B.F. 08’’. Aroma is a bold banana scent. Color is a hazy golden yellow with good carbonation and a nice tight head. It starts with a light body that goes down smooth. Finish is a true Hefe flavor with coriander, clove and banana. This is a tasty Hefeweizen.

Spectacularly well-constructed brewpub hefeweizen.
Darker than most, aiming at Schneider’s Weisse territory. Authentic wheaty aroma. Flowery, cerealic and loaded with fresh, creamy bananas. More aromatic than most. Intense, captivating carbonation is spot on. The bubblegum growing flavours in the finish are taken aback by a final wave of wheat freshness.
Perhaps a bit grainier than I prefer, but otherwise, this is amongst the best I’ve had outside Europe.
