Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange tinged gold with a soft head on top. Nose is vanilla scented tropicalfruits with hops. Flavor is very hoppy which dominates the weizen profile. There is some unspiced banana bread here as well. Nice creamy mouthfeel. I was excited about trying this beer and I guess my expectations fell a bit short. For me, less hops would have been more pleasing, but still enjoyed.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Luminescent orange pour of a thick and crazy haze. Brilliant tropical nose of guava, golden kiwi and pineapple gets boozy and develops a canned attitude with a little warmth. Tastes of green apple gum and cotton candy, bananas foster and esters. A little toffee at the end. Alcohol powers through with a sweet, vanilla vodka strength. Dry hops finish with a resinous bite that meshes well with everything previous. Ever so slight in cloying sweetness, more obvious for hotness. Bombastic thickness of palate. A bit much. Refreshing and undeniably interesting, but far from perfect.

I’m not a big fan of any weisse beer, but I have found ONE that is indeed exceptional. The nose on this is fantastic with a bit of cloves at the tail end of the nose but definately not too much. I have never seen a color on beer quite like this, its a cloudy cocoa or mud like character. It seems thin but does have quite a big dose of alc in it. The hop character shows throughout and basically overpowers the clove taste that comes in at the end. Good Beer!!

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle from pantanap; Nose of wheat, a bit of tartness, banana esters, spices, and some light hops; very cloudy yellowish gold with a big, but quick disappating goldish-white head; flavor is grainy yeast, hop bitterness, banana, peppery spices, and lemon. Great and different hefe!

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Pours a light brown color into the Aventinus weizen glass. The head formed a thick two inches, and was a thing of beauty. The scent was a nice balance of hops and wheat with notes of citrus, grassy tones. The taste was very complex with flavors flying all around. The highlights were yeast, bread, wheat, citrusy hops and some nutmeg. Perfect mouthfeel and finish. German hefewiezens are not my favorite style, but this was tremendous. I absolutely loved this beer.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Pours an unbel;ievably murky and hazy dark brownish color, with a huge head. Great banana, clove, grapefruit, citrus, yeasty almost farmhouse like fuky spicyness on the nose. Great creamy and carbonated mouthfeel with a nice dose of white pepper, as well as some banana, plenty of funky spicy grassiness, brown sugar and so much more. This is a killer summer beer, packed with flavor, and super complex. So complex that the 8 plus ABV is very well hidden, and could be dangerous.

500mL bottle. Pours a murky brown color with a yellowish tinge; gorgeous, fluffy off-white head with perfect retention and lacing; a beautiful pour (to be expected from these fine folks). Generous, grassy and herbal hop notes in the aroma, coupled with an ester and chewy malt base (overripe fruit and Belgian sugar); excellent combination of hops and hefeweizen character. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: dense, chewy clove and ester core, with a creamy banana presence and plenty of herbal / grassy hops lining the perimeter; perfect use of hops to accentuate what is already a wonderful thing. My wife: "can we buy a lot of this?" Lengthy, chewy clove and herbal finish. I didn’t want this bottle to end.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Pours with lots of carbonation and head. Dirty looking beer: light brown and cloudy, looks like a chemistry experiment gone wrong. A spicy yet citric aroma, there is a lot of hop aroma here. Flavor has nutmeg and spicy wheat upfront with a big hop flavor afterwards. Very dry finish leaving a bitter taste behind. Reminds me of the Bells Wheat Project. Some mellowing may help this.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Strong nutmeg and cinnamon aroma, banana’s and citrus, with some clove. Pours cloudy dark orange with a HUGE fluffy white head. So smooth, great citrus wheat flavor, yeasty, clove and nutmeg, a strong hop presence, more than you’d find in a hefeweizen normally, hints of some caramel and brown sugar hidden in there. Pretty meaty, hefty beer, filling. This is one the best hefeweizens i’ve ever had. Normally i’d go for a Schneider Edel-Weisse but this has all my favorite aspects of that beer, just X2. Great Beer!

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 bottle from Liquor Outlet. very hazy orange in color with a gigantic, swiss cheese like off white head. Aroma is very hoppy, with spicy, citrus, banana, and light spice notes. I also get hefe yeast, bread, and light suggestions of wheat in the nose. Taste is also very hop forward- with floral, perfumy citrus and spicy hops intertwined with banana esters, and alot of wheat. Hops contribute flavor and not that much bitterness. Flavors become a bit muddled. Some moderate alcohol warm in the finish,not well hidden. Body is medium to full, still somewhat refreshing although the alcohol is so high on this beer. Pretty good, aroma is definitely much nicer than the flavor.
