1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle, 2007 vintage. Pours a cloudy honey color with a small head. At 7.5% ABV, this is the strongest Hefeweizen I have ever tried. Flavor: lemon and wheat, with just a hint of hops.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Very impressed with this drink - Stunning appearance in the glass - truly a work of art. Heavy wheat malt very reminiscent of the standard Pyramid hef; bubblegum and banana with a touch of spice upfront. Not much hop noticable in the drink but just enough to balance out the fine malt complex. A tad yeasty on the finish as well with a little citrus tart. Very soft and enjoyable. Great Googley Moogley this was a fantastic Hefe!

Yum yum yum. A very very nice cloudy hefe that is orange and yellow. Pours with a nice head and is completely cloudy like a murky pond. Malts are very sweet and this beer goes down very smooth.

thick hazy orange and gold, looks almost solid. thin head until i swirled out the yeast sediment from the bottle and poured it in. subliminal banana, the lemon notes linger pleasingly with some gritty yeast. great job

The aroma is a touch of banana and wheat, with a load of noble hops. There’s something else hiding in the aroma, and I can’t quite place it. It pours a cloudy orange, with a thick fluffy white head. The taste is of banana and spice (with a touch of coriander)... some bready yeast, and a touch of hop bittering. A very interesting beer, it reminded me a lot of Bells 8000.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - OCT 6, 2007
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Pours out an extremely cloudy orangish color. Thin tan head leaves a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Banana aromas with some background cloves in the nose. Flavors are of apricots, spicy fruits, orange peel. Malts shine thru along with the hops at the very end. Thick mouthfeel, rich & chewy. Slightly sweet finish. Alcohol is very well hidden on this brew. But it does sneak up on you. Beware.

Cloudy yellow-orange in color. Rich banana bread in the nose that seems to fade to no aroma as the beer sits in the glass. The banana aroma is only slightly backed up in the flavor. A little yeast and citrus to finish.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bomber. Medium sized off-white head. The body looks like a natural apple cider with nice cloudines. Spicy sweet nose. Flavors of apple butter, cinammon, cloves, and bananas. Nice warm, but very clean, drinkable finish. This one’s a really good (somewhat strong) session beer. Very unique.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2009
22oz bottle poured into a weizen glass. Hazy, dark orange with a super foamy head. Smells spicy, peppery, and fruity. Interesting flavors of fruit, hoppy, but not similar to a normal hefe as I didn’t find any banana or clove flavors here, weird. Nice beer, I wonder if it was better when it was first released back in September. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-01-2008 01:14:24
