German-style wheat ale. Mit hefe (with yeast) this cloudy, classic German ale is light in body yet big in flavor. Lots of clove and a bit of banana make a big aromatic presence

Pours rather dark for a hefe. Super intense bubblegum banana aroma, but the flavor is not overpowering. Very nice.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Draught @ Portsmouth Brewpub. Pours cloudy orange-gold with a big fluffy head. Nose is massive banana - to the point of being almost overwhelming and artificial tasting. Taste is some spicy, crisp wheat and more gigantic banana - like laughy taffy in character. Very sweet, but domeinated by the fruity, artificial banana note. Spicy, clean finish. Disappointing when placed up against the quality of the other Portsmouth brews we tried. Crisp carbonation and medium to light body.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a golden amber orange body with a thin white head. Bananas and fruity esters. Over ripe banana’s sweet malt and a lil etoh. Very clean taste with risidual sweetness. Just overly sweet. My least favorite of the day.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2008
On tap at the brewpub during the KtG release: One of my favorite beers of the lineup on tap that day. This had wonderful power and concentration with classic banana and clove aromas. This just really hit my sweet spot on this day!

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Draught at the brewery. Pours a murky orange haze with a small white head. Nose of lots of banana, clove, wheat, and yeast. Banana dominates a little much. Mouth feel is light bodied and smooth. Initial taste of wheat, banana and clove. Citrus is present with lots of sweetness lingering. Finishing with a floral hop balance. Very refreshing and drinkable. Palate duration is average. Good head retention and spot lacing of the glass. Good overall.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
Muddy beige. No head. Big banana nose with light indistinct phenols and abundant wheat. Very sweet - sort of icing sugar sticky. Big banana and very sugary finish.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - JUN 20, 2008
On tap at the brewery Pale hazy orange/yellow body, small white head that goes away too quickly Aromas of bubblegum and bananas light grain background along with the customary glove spice note Flavors are light wheat and sweet fruit bananas and orange almost no bitters here at all, light to medium body almost no carbonation at all I tend to drink this fairly often the only thing I wish was that the carbonation was increased. I due know if you get it from the downstairs tap the carbonation is slightly better. A good Hefe all an all

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Draught, sample @ brewpub. Hazy, cloudy, orange with white cap. Sweet banana nose and solid lingering banana character throughout. Decent if a bit sweet and manages to avoid being cloying, which is nice.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a hazy amber in color with a bright white head that faded quickly. Aroma held lots of the classic clove/banana typical if the style and some citrus and bready yeast as well. Flavor was similar... yeasty with clove/banana and some citrus. An average hefe...

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 22, 2008
(Draft @ brewpub) Bubblicious!....Served in a shaker (they usually serve it with a lemon wedge but I declined). Cloudy light amber/gold body with a small off-white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat malt, citrus, lilies and other light florals. Mouthfeel light, wheaty smooth. Lightly sticky (a bit of a Portsmouth trademark). Some light, weepy, fleeting rings of lacing. Flavor of bubblegum, flowers and sweet malt. Yeasty. Good but quite bubblegummy.
