Looks like piss or apple juice, LOL. Reminds me of a blonde more than a hefe. Tingly fruity ending. Little carbonation.

1 Pint Bottle 2007 Brewer’s Reserve Appearance- Pours Very Cloudy golden yellow with a large white bubble head. Some sediment from the bottle gout in to the Glass No lacing on the glass. Aroma- Very sweet smell with a floral bouquet with a hint of fruit T/P- Starts off very wheaty turning to a nice warm feeling which is more than likely due to the alcohol content of the beer. Defiantly has the taste of American wheat which I like, but if you do not and are looking for the strong banana and clove taste stay away from this one, they are there but barely Overall- Not a bad hefeweizen but at the price not one that I would drink all the time. But would defiantly get more of to have on hand

22oz bottle. 2007 Reserve (pulled from the back of my fridge!). Poured a golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of cloves, wheat, and lighter bananas. Tastes of the same. Actually not too bad for a ’07 Hefe that has been sitting in the fridge long forgotten.

22 ounce bomber. Hazy yellow with a white head. Looks like a classic unfiltered wheat beer. Smooth and drinkable for the alcohol content..

hayduke (3366) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 2, 2011
May have kept this too long. 2007 bottle. Pour dark yellow with a big foamy head. Nose of banana and alcohol. Light in body with lively mouthfeel. Flavor is bananas and clove. Seemed to have lost its pop but for a four year old unfiltered hefe it was not bad.

Brandman (2076) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Hazy orange copper body, white head. Aroma of strong sweet malt, some fruits. Wheat aleish. Flavour hasroasted malt, weizenbock, raisins, lots of bread.

rosenbergh (6800) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2011 650 ml bottle. From Calgary, AB, Canada.
Hazy orange colour with small off-white head. Malt, caramel, yeast and wheat in aroma. Some bitterness, yeast, wheat and strong Bock-like maltiness in flavour. Alcohol warmth.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Strong banana and phenols on aroma. Hazy hay color with foamy white head. Fruity flavor of bananas and hefe yeast with slight tart bitterness on the finish. Lighter body with fizzy carbonation. Definitely a hefe, but the alcohol tempers the esters.

On tap at TCBF, pours hazy golden yellow. Aroma and flavour of wheat, citrus, banana and something else I can’t put my finger on (some odd spice). Great for Pyramid’s standard.
