COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional style German wheat beer remains unfiltered to preserve its natural smooth flavor and aroma. Don't be alarmed by its cloudy apperance or noticable sediment. The slight banana and clove aroma comes from authentic German Hefeweizen yeast. Crafted from winter wheat, two-row malt with Mittelfrueh and Tettnang hops. It has a light and refreshing finish

Saranac’s Hefeweizen has a cloudy golden color with a thin foamy head. The aroma of banana is very strong. There is also a hint of spice and wheat in the aroma as well. Its flavor is mostly sweet with very little hop presence. There is a heavy dose of banana and lemon flavors along with a wheat malt base and some spicy clove. All of this is wrapped up in a medium body with a smooth texture and a mild carbonation. Another solid offering from Saranac.

FROM NOTES: August 23, ’12. From a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. A: Very fragrant and fresh. Wheat, lemon and orange notes. A: Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a nice head that quickly disappears. T: Delicious wheaty sweetness is accompanied by banana and clove flavors. A slight bit of lemon crawls into the back end. P: Crisp balanced & smooth, light bodied with light carbonation. O: Very drinkable. Very flavorful. Maybe the best beer of the 6 showcased in the Saranac Summer 12 pack

Has the requisite characteristics you’d expect from a hefe, but everything is muted and stale tasting.

Cybercat (3222) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Aroma is yeasty and wheaty with a lemon underpinning, typical but enjoyable. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice ivory head. Wheaty flavor has a yeasty and citrus underpinning - plus a hint of, is that cherry, or just my imagination running away with me? Smooth texture has average fizz and thickness. Perfect for summer - or early autumn - or any damn time of year you please.

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Saranac 12 Beers Of Summer 12 pack purchased at Sams Club. Cloudy orange/yellow color, small white head that slowly left with litlle lacing, moderate to strong sweet/spicy/banana/clove/wheat aroma, sweet/spicy/somewhat astringent taste that’s certainly not as interesting as the aroma and with more clove than I personally like--other might be more favorably disposed to it.

Blairgus (2561) - California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
28 Oct 212, bottle. yellow, faintly hazy, some occasional bubbles. nose is faint banana pudding, maybe some banoffee pie. it’s not the big hefe nose you look for. thin body and fizzy. faint banana, some pepper. fizzy and crisp and obscures the flavor. not that nice for a hefe

Patrickctenchi (3441) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours not-quite clear honey-gold.. tall off-white head. Scent is clove,banana....wheat... Taste is the same, but in reverse order... Pretty light, not overly sweet or wheaty overall... Not a bad offering....a decent everyday domestic Hefeweisen.

Bottle. Orange, banana, wheat malt aroma. Golden with a small white head. Wheat malt, banana, light clove flavor. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Easy drinker.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2012
355 ml bottle from The Beer Store in Monticello, NY. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large off white head. Aroma is a weak citrus and Hefe nose. Taste is a weak and watery example of style. Palate is waeks and ends slightly bitter. Not a good example of style. Another example of try to make way too many beers and not perfecting any of them.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Typical wheaty aroma, more citrus than banana in this one. Hazy orange. Taste is bittersweet with banana elements more evident. Very smooth, does not bite as expected. Aims high and falls a bit short.
