A slightly sour Bavarian-style ale brewed with wheat and barley grains. This refreshing, lightly-hopped beer is served "mit hefe", without filtering out the primary yeast.

Hazy orange tan, a little more orange or dark than Id expect..not yellow. Solid example, lots of banana, light clove. Medium bodied, easy drinking, refreshing. Well done, straightforward.

Hazy golden-orange with plenty of white head. Standard banana, clove, and yeast in the nose. Flavor pretty standard as well, but a bit thin. Overall, pretty good.

On tap at Silver Creek. Poured hazy lighter golden with an off-white head. The aroma was sweet with toasty bananas and vanilla first and foremost.. very approachable. The flavor was a bit too sweet for my liking, but was still very drinkable.. bananas and vanilla again, accented by mildly tangy wheat.. more yeasty on the back-end with a lot of residual sugars. Sweet and somewhat grainy on the palate.. just OK feel and flow.

On tap at Silver Creek brewpub. Hazy amber with a thin white head that’s gone pretty soon. I was hoping they had a cheese plate as 23oz of beer on a mostly empty stomach is not the best thing in the world, but they stopped serving food of any kind. Aroma of lemon, banana, yeast and mild clove. Taste mimics the aroma with lemon and banana and sweet finish. Not a bad brew on a hot day, next time I’ll come here after disc golfing Lime Kiln (and not on an empty stomach) and not before.

Pours a bright golden colour, with a medium sized white head. Wheat aroma is lighter then what i expected, a little coriander is present. Flavor is light and citrusy. Initial taste is wheat but quickly trails off into watery finish. They might need ot work on this one a little.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a transparent golden with a thin covering of white head. Aroma has some bready German yeast, banana, and sweet malted wheat. Starts lightly sweet and floral with a hint of honey and clove along with some lemon citrus balance. A little thin in flavor but otherwise fairly true to style.

hazy yellow, scant head, light sweet clove and banana aroma, mostly dry wheat flavor with just a touch of sweetness from the banana, long clove finish takes away the sweetness offered up by the banana esters,

Cloudy straw color with a small white head. l blamed the pour for the head, but after reading the other reviews it appears this is typical. Light aromas of wheat and light bananas. Banana pudding flavors and just a touch of dry yeast and sweet wheat. A slight sour flavor distracts slightly. A quaffable weiss.

Sampled on draught as "Hefeweiss" at the brewpub in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a thin white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light wheat and yeasty malt, banana esters, some coriander, cloves and spiced apple cider. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of yeast, banana ester and a sweet apple cider character. Finish is smooth, creamy with a slight sweet apple aftertaste and no bitterness.

Hazy gold color, creamy small white head that fades to nothing. Sweet wheaty lemon banana aroma. Estery lemon and banana cream flavor, orange, sweet caramel-like malts and sweet grass. Sout sour hint at finish. Full flavor... a little sticky in the mouth and a great drink.
