after4ever (6088) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. This would certainly be the beer of the day by a long shot after today’s Olympic Peninsula pub crawl.
Cloudy bright lemony yellow. Thin white foamy head. Nice florid banana nose. Creamy medium body, soft carb. Nice banana and clove. Not astonishing but very clean and refreshing with a lovely creamy round body. Well-made hefe.

On Tap at BrewPub. Pours out a pretty nice cloudy yellow. A nice banana aroma like a hef should have. Tasted not to bad pretty good hef.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Pours a cloudy apricot with a lacy white head. Aroma of bananas with spicy overtones. Light somewhat watery body and medium carbonation. Sweet and sour banana and wheat taste. Hosp show up in the fairly crisp finish. A bit light all the way around.

A deep hazy yellow color with a thin head. This was full of flavor and frutness throughout the beer. They flavors where crsip and good Iliked this Hefe. Not close to perfect but it was very good and easy to drink. Little spice more fruit. More wheat flavor would make it perfect.

IndianaRed (2331) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle Pours a cloudy murkey yellow with a thin white head. Malty german hef aroma. bananas and a littel spice. fairly mild though. Flavor is nice and fruity. Rather dominated by the banana flavors and a nice soft wheat body. Very soft carbonation. The 22 I had was filled to withing 1/4" of the cap. Sweet begginging, middle and end. Not as spicy as the style would dictate but I found it very nice and quite drinkable. Somewhat americanized German Hef I’d say.

GABF 2005 (I poured this one as a volunteer). Golden hazy beer with a white head. Estery, coriander aroma. Nice coriander and wheat flavor, enjoyable for the style.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Tap at the brewpub. Very pale cloudy yellow beer, thin white lace. Some spicy coriander notes, bubble gum, and very faint clove. A bit vegetal. Falvour is wheay enought, light yeastiness but the body is a bit thin. Light estery finish.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
On tap at the brewpub
Densely sedimented tan colour. Heavy banana/yeast aroma. Spritzy carbonation, which cuts through what would otherwise be kind of cloying. Lots of sweetness, light banana and a musty, footy yeastiness. Fairly dry in the finish as the yeastiness begins to dominate. Pretty far from the bright, lively hefes I like.

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Glowing soft murky yellow. Sweet fruity, yeasty and fresh tasting beer. Light and crisp, with a German yeast nose and a woody finish. Very fresh tasting, and a perfect summer hefeweizen.
