DrnkMcDermott (2779) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Beer-judging sized sampler. Appropriately cloudy, even a little white like a Belgian. Has an extreme banana and lemon nose that overwhelms the other hefeweizen spices.

merc7186 (1973) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2013
The beer has a really nice orangish color with a decent haziness to it. The head is a nice clean white one finger head with minimal lacing on the glass. The smell has mild notes of spice and yeast with a slight bitterness to it, not very fruity as expected with a hefeweizen. The taste is decent with a good blend of banana, clove, yeast, and spice. The mouthfeel is pretty decent with a mild spiciness (sp) and some bitterness in the back end. Overall, this is really good beer and I hate to discourage people on it but not worthy on WBC Bronze.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Tap @ Piece in Chicago with TheAlum. Pours a nice, cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Somewhat spicy, light banana, a bit yeasty, light veggie aroma. Thereís some more veggie notes in the flavor along with some wheat, light citrus, and bread. I had this a couple of years back at GABF and didnít remember it having any veggie notes but this time it was hard to ignore. Would like to try again in the future.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate banana, light clove, and a touch of bubblegum. Itís a cloudy dull brownish-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of banana that quickly mixes with wheat and citrus tanginess. The finish has light lemon and clove. Itís light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall...I always stop here when in Chicago specifically for this beer and I always seem to miss it. I finally get to try it and it was worth the wait. Itís a must try if you like Hefeweizens.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Had on tap at Piece. Served in a 22 oz. Hefe glass. A: Pours a very chilled and hazy dark straw that bubbles to a very light brown at the body of the glass. A fluffy, pure white head forms on the pour, about one finger in height, that stick with me down the entire glass. Splotches of lace follow me down the glass. Looks perfect. S: Great notes of wheat, clove, peppery yeast and a subtle bubblegum. T: The taste follows the nose, but there is a little bit more peppery yeast bite with a little less sweet bubblegum. The wheat becomes more prevalent as well with a slight malt character. M: Medium bodied, but leaning towards the lighter side. Little coating quality that really lets the yeast resonate in your mouth. O: Itís obvious why this beer has won multiple awards. Itís very delicious and I would have again and again. All the characteristics in the taste really mesh well. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-16-2011

Tap at the brewpub. Hazy rich yellow pour with a white head. Great aroma of banana, wheat, and clove. Killer hefe.
