COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style Wheat Ale uses a German yeast strain, which produces a unique blend of banana, clove and vanilla. El Jefe is unfiltered and highly carbonated making it extremely refreshing. Great with any meal.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head and a tiny bit of lacing as it moves down the glass. Nose brings some banana and light citrus as well as a tiny bit of clove spice. Taste is really quite light with a bit of wheat and banana. Light feel with good carbonation levels. Drinks quite well as there is nothing offensive and it goes down smoothly. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-24-2010

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - OCT 16, 2010
On tap at brewhouse. Just not good. A nasty cloudy color, and a gross yeastiness of the flavor. Not my style of beer, and one of the worst examples of the style I have had to date.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2010
On tap at Rock Bottom Arlington on 09/26/2010. Cloudy orange/yellow body with a large rocky white head. Big citrus and spice aroma. Citrus, clove and light banana flavor. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Draft at RB Arlington. Pours a cloudy goldy, slightly pale. Big fluffy head. Nose has phenols, plastic and bananas. Some distant sweetness as well. On taste, the phenols are a bit astringent and lacks the big hefe punch of the greats, though does have a nice full body and some good banana notes. Decent Hefe.

On tap at Rock Bottom. Pours a hazy apricot gold with a medium white head. Nice light clove and banana aromas. Weird grainy flavor, some esters. Finishes up with a bit of yeast and some bitter grain. Not so tasty.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color. Large head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet bread, yeast and light citrus. Taste is very bread and spicy. Finishes with strong citrus and tropical fruit notes. Thin-medium bodied.

Very weak, watery heffe. No bie or spice at all even with a lemon to try and pull some flavors out it was bleak and univiting.
