(bottle) A well crafted American Heffe-Weizen brewed locally in NJ. The freshness stands out. Nice cloudy unfiltered golden complexion with ample head. The flavor is classic with banana, green apple and faint clove. Well done.

Very hazy, minimal head. Nose is banana, lemon, clove, malty wheat, standard hefe fare. Taste matches nose, very effervescent and bubbly. Not bad, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got this as an extra in a recent trade, can’t remember who sent it but thanks. 12 oz bottle served in a Hefe glass. Best before October 2013. A: Pours a clear yellow color with some light shading towards the top. A white head forms on the pour, about two fingers high, and settles down to a thin, wispy film. Some light splotches of lace are left down the glass. S: Typical hefe smells. Light clove, some mild fruitiness with a solid wheat backbone. Banana esters are present as well. Light pie crust as well T: The banana esters take over with a brown banana sweetness and rankness to it. The wheat is there with some mild sweetness. Slightly vegetal in natures as well. Doesn’t really mesh well together and isn’t that particularly inviting. After a few sips it becomes more bland and even less flavorful M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Very banana ester forward on the finish with a high level of sweetness. O: This just doesn’t work. The yeast profile they used wasn’t very inviting and while it had the typical hefe flavors it was extremely unbalanced. More hops and wheat would have been nice. A little fuller body to. Serving type: bottle 07-04-2013

Pours hazy yellow/orange with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma of wheat, banana, yeast and oranges. Flavors of wheat, fruity, yeast, sweet finish
OK, but too sweet for me.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Andrew! Pours a clear pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, bread, and grain. Taste is lemons, wheat, bread, and spice. Well made Hefeweizen.

(From Notes) Adequate weissbier. Vey haze amber in color. Minimal head. Very little lacing. Floral nose. Neutral taste. A very good weissbeer, particularly for a new jersey beer. No aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Good session beer. Would recommend.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/14/13

Aroma: The nose has the standard mix of wheat, banana, and clove
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a small white head and some light lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet, and pretty much the same as the nose component-wise
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has a fairly lively carbonation, and a decent drinkability
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was right on-style, and fairly well-made, but not too much more then that. Solid stuff.

keanex (1493) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Best before January 2013.
Appearance: The body is typical of a hefeweizen, very cloudy, actually opaque, though a bit darker than most I’ve had with this one being an amber hue. There’s a thin white head but it has poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is very good here a bit on the sweet side, only hints of tart, a nice balance between banana and cloves with hints of bubblegum and very light tart apple.
Taste: Wow what a great hefeweizen that’s very refreshing. The intro and mid-taste are citrus with light yeast notes with light banana and bubblegum with a mild tart and light cloves on the finish.
Palate: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation.
Overall: This is a great hefeweizen, very crisp and very well balanced, I just wish there was a little more yeast in the flavor. I would love to drink this again.
