On tap at the brewery. Sorry, Rahr. I love you, but this isn’t a beer that I like to drink.

Bottle. Pours a orange golden with a medium frothy white head that leaves behind decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong banana and clove with bubblegum. Thin mouthfeel with a banana flavor with wheat and citrus. Easy to drink, a good German Hefe from Rahr.

Interesting beer; nice honey slightly cloudy color; good aroma.
Smooth with nice medium palate. and a slightly tart taste going down (more lemon than banana to me)
would drink one again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2011 Has a darker pour than most Belgium wheats but maintains the same aroma. Yet another juicy fruit beer. 3.6
RE-RATE Tap at Gman FW. This beer pours a cloudy orange-yellow color with a tall foamy white head. The head is maintained for several minutes as it crests the rim and gently slopes down the outside of the glass. BTW I should mention it is really cool to look down the bar and see EVERYONE drinking the same thing. That never happens here.
The aroma is wheaty and grainy upfront with an immediate shift to a floral fruit-like nose. Large elements of lemon citrus and perhaps a bit of banana as well. That’s nice to see considering it was initially served without a lemon. (They left one on the side incase i wanted it.) This beer also sports a fair bit of spice, cloves or maybe a subtle coriander.
The first thing I taste is quite bready. Lots of wheats and grain characteristics. The sweet fruit flavors come towards the middle of the drink and last through the finish. Gentle spice as well. Very nice and refreshing. Adding the lemon slice adds an obvious boost of citrus and light tartness, but the fruit slice is unnecessary for this particular Hefeweizen.

Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet wheaty combined with light notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrus and wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Cloudy and golden beer. Nice smell of banana and clove. That continues nicely into the taste. Banana in the burp. The wheat qualities also contains a hint of citrus.
