COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

(draft) Not my favorite in this style, but not really anything wrong with it that I can point out. Just a little subdued in every aspect. Could use something more, but I’m not sure what.

boto (1908) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUL 13, 2005
500ml bottle: Suprise! This pours an amber color, definitely darker than expected for a Hefeweizen. Mine had a bit of a fizzy head, but it went to nothing rather quickly. There was no lacing. The main component of the aroma is definitely clove. Not overpowering, but it is up-front of everything else. Perhaps some wheat and spices in the backgroung. It has a good wheat body, with definite notes of clove and banana to the taste. Very drinkable.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, a medium dark ambery cloudy pour with nig head. Clovey aroma, packed with spices. Big banana and orange and esters and spices in the flavor - much more spiciness than I would expect in a German hefeweizen.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2005
17oz - Aroma is yeast, malt, brown sugar, and a little lemon, kind of weak. Color is a yellowish brown producing tons of bubbles, but little head and no lacing. Flavor is brown sugar, yeast and malt with a touch of citrus. Clean palate is refreshing on a hot day. A different hefe, good but not great.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2005
Draft. I reallý don’t understand the rave about this one. My friends all love it as well, but this is what I thought: Aroma is extremely honey and rich. Definitely the best part of this beer is the nose. Flavor is something of a disappointment. It’s too citrus and palate is downright disgusting. Way too sweet and sticky.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Had this one on draught in Chicago, Illinois. An outstanding wheat beer, as most are! Deep orange color with a thick head, nose of orange and cloves, taste light and wheaty with citrus and tropical fruit. Finishes light. A great summertime brew.

Imagine, being constrained by the use of four ingredients and two are water and yeast, and still being able to make this beer. Probably the best I’ve ever had. The color is just rich and glowing. The nose is full of banana and cloves that give way to rich baking spices and bananas foster. Thank you to the brewery for refermenting in the bottle. Living beer is always a plus and aside from the remarkable freshness this beer also posseses a wonderful champagne-like carbonation that when poured into the PROPER glass at the PROPER temp. the head floats like a cloud all the way down the flute.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2005 Bottle. Pours a dark amber color, not very cloudy. Nice head, but did not last too long. Seemed to have more carbonation than other hefes I have tried recently. Had more of an apple taste to it with some spice. I enjoyed this one, but a notch below some other hefes I have tried recently. Good beer.

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Bottle. For a Hefe this is one of the tops in the catagory. Just pouring this into the glass is worth buying this one. Head is incredible full tight and long lasting white. Taste is decent a little more sour and fruity than a typical Hefe. Excellent Choice.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 On Draft at Issac Newtons. Pours orang\brown with a beige head. Aroma of citrus, fruit (bananas), spices perhaps cinnamon. Flavor is sweet, wheat, bananas, citrus, carbonated. Good body, damn good Hefe.
