The body has a pale hazy yellow/tan color. Its head was small but hung on well and was thick and creamy. Lacing was slick and slid down the sides of the tall glass. The fruity banana and spicy clove like yeast notes hit my nose as soon as the server placed it on the table. Under the yeast there were light hints of grain and wheat malt. Its firm medium body and smooth texture set you up for every thing noted in the aroma plus a very mild hint of citrusy hops towards the finish. It finishes with plenty of sweetness and fruity yeast.

Draft @ J. Ryan’s, Syracuse. Cloudy gold, small head. Nose is much sweeter then most Hefeweizens. Still some banana and clove. Taste is malt forward with caramel malt leading to the traditional German wheat yeast. Body and texture is a tad watery. Ok, yeast flavor. Not nearly as good as Cortland’s hefe. Drinkable but I would not drive to NY for it.

IdealBrew (12) - New York, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Pours a hazy golden-amber. Strong yeast/wheat character on the nose. Quickly dissipating head. Carbonation lends to the "spritzy" mouthfeel and flavors of fruity banana and clove. Three words describe this beer: liquid banana bread! ---IdealBrew "Good People Good Beer"

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a milky gold with a thin white head. Bananas, wheat, yeast on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet banana and caramel. Some wheat but a bit empty. Soft wheat and toast on the finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Pours cloudy yellow from tap with a thin white head. Subtle hints of clove on the nose. A bit more pronounced on the tongue. Clean finish. Not bad for style.

Lemony aroma. Hazy gold in color as expected. Extremely citrussy with a tart finish. Super refreshing.

Presentation: It was poured from the tap at The Wildflower Café / The Crooked Rooster Brewpub. The serving glass was a very tall mug. Appearance: The body was your basic pale hazy yellow/tan color. Its head was a bit small for a Hefe, only about one and half fingers tall. What was there hung on well and was thick and creamy. Lacing was slick and slid down the sides of the tall glass. Smell: The fruity banana and spicy clove like yeast notes hit my nose as soon as the server placed it on the table. Under the yeast there were light hints of grain and wheat malt. Taste/Palate: Its firm medium body and smooth texture set you up for every thing noted in the aroma plus a very mild hint of citrusy (lemon) hops towards the finish. It finishes with plenty of sweetness and fruity yeast. Notes: It was just a little sweet and slick but overall this is a solid Hefe.

FCFB 09. Classic German Hefeweizen. A bit acidic but otherwise very enjoyable. Bananas and cloves in the nose and palate.

Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light clove, some banana, wheat, toast, and toffee. Taste of banana, tart wheat, citrus fruits, toffee, and a dry, toasty finish.
