Bricks (558) - Delaware, USA - DEC 30, 2010
It tasted like your typical wheat beer, but loaded with Banana runts. Not as sweet as you’d think from reading that first line though. A tolerable beer, but nothing special.

Light smooth hefe. Lots of clove in the nutty flavor, bit of lemon too. Light, fizzy pour with a lot of lace.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Draft. Pours hazy yellow gold with a white head. Light fruity aroma, with wheat and spice. Wheaty, grainy flavor with lighter notes of banana/lemon and spices. Not bad.

dagimp (685) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2009
On tap at the KOP Rock Bottom. Served in a pint glass. A couple of fingers of head with a little lacing. Color was a thick golden yellow; liquid sun is a very fitting name. Aroma was of cloves, yeast and a little lemon. Taste was very similar to the aroma. Nice blend of yeast and clove flavors with a slight banana flavor as well. Nothing was very overpowering and I would like to have had a stronger flavor, but it was still a solid hefe. Would definitely drink again.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Bright golden color with a medium white head. Aroma dominated by banana, citrus, spice and wheat. Flavor is dominated by citrus, banana, and a mild wheatiness. Good, but it actually faded quite a bit as it warmed.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Sampled from Growler filled earlier in the day. Poured a deep and cloudy yellow color with a small sized head. Aromas of mainly wheat with some spices, cereal, and bananas in the back ground. Tastes of wheat, citrus, and light bananas. This one was all about the wheat!

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Poured a hazy lighter golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat malt, lighter banana, citrus fruits, toffee, but lots of yeast overall. Taste was upfront with some bananas, and clove, citrus fruits, toffee malts, and a drier finish. Not one of my favorite hefes.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Sampled from a growler pour. Pours a hazy orange with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma was earthy, clove, light banana, lots of wheat. Flavor of wheat, earthy, yeast, clove and light banana. The banana notes were really low in this one, citrus notes low as well. A little too earthy/wheaty for me.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draft AND cask at KOP. DRAFT-Pours cloudy amber orange with a nice hefe white head. Banana bubblegum ester aroma. Nice body but maybe a tad thin in texture. Flavor of pale wheat malt, banana, and clove- with some dryness. Not as sweet as I like my hefes. Finish has some subtle phenols.

CASK- First time I have ever had a Hefe on cask. Compared to the draft, this was less citrusy/tart, less carbonated, and the phenols were pretty much gone. It had a nagging flatness. It was interesting, but I don’t think Hefes are designed to be on cask. At least for me.
