12 oz can shared with willblake at willblake’s studio apartment/bar. Poured a hazy ronagey/yellow color that reminded me of straw with a small off white head. Aroma was grass, wheat and some lemon. Flavor was similiar to the aroma and was an easy sipping beer. Once again I am really loving this whole good beer in a can thing.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2007
Dull yellow color, decent head. Lots of banana, yeast, spice, very flavorful, and a good attempt at a German Hefe, Some bitterness on the aftertaste, but still, very good. Thanks to Doclock for this one, Mystery swap 2.0

Hazy, golden yellow color, with a very minimal head. Good yeasty flavors with banana, slight clove and some solid spiciness. Overall, not too bad. [Thanks to Zarathrus for the can]

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Can. Minimal head, hazy golden color. Citrusy, floral aroma with hints of yeast, banana, and spices. Flavors were predominantly fruity/acidic with some wheat, yeast, and notes of banana, clove, and nutmeg. Not bad.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Can from Zathrus. Not too bad a hefe. Interesting that there is yeast in the can. Way undercarbonated, especially for the style. Almost no head. Bad bad bad. Good spiciness and clove/banana typical hefe stuff, though a bit muddled and muddy, with an odd note of german hops. Flavor has a very rough, harsh mineral bite, underlying the hefe notes.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 I’ve been anticipating this forever. A hefeweizen with the yeast in a can, now i’ve seen everything. Pours orange gold with a 2 inch head-beautiful. Lots of banana and bubblegum ester in the aroma. Up front there is a lot of wheaty sweetness and more banana. For some reason the first few sips had this confusing and strong bitter tartness that was very off-putting. It seems gone for the most part. perhaps residue on the glass. A rich american attempt at a german hefe and up there with the best.

Can: Poured a clouded gold ale into the glass with only a modest cap..missing was the puffy cap one expects on a hefe. Aroma: one of the most well defined and authentic Hefe aromas I have had from a NA Hefeweizen...cloves, bubblegum, Banana, cinnamon, some citrus light musty-sweetness....excellent nose to this. Profile: Big on sweet malts up front , good body for a weizen...mid palate you get the spicey fruity phenols from the heffe mingling with the styrian hops...finished semi-dry and biscuity. One of the better domestic craft hefes.

Sammy (8937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2007
Pours a light body with vast quickly disapearing head. The aroma was a bit funky yeast to me, with lots of spices to come. A medium mouthfeel, I have had some thicker hefeweiz, but do not recall such a spicey one with a spice rack full of corriander, cinammon, nutmeg, et al..

Can (!) from markgugs - thanks! I’m not a huge fan of hefes, but I have to say I’m fairly impressed by this take. A big cloudy body of golden straw with a nice billowy head, the pils really leaped out at me, as did the big refreshing mouthfeel. There’s a grassy flavor that’s even a bit more dry than the usual wheat, and a well integrated palette of spices and fruits. Nicely done.

12oz. can. Hazy straw/amber colored with a medium white head that quickly dissipated. Mildly sweet aroma of bananas, cloves and a bit of citrus. Sweet, wheat malt flavor with notes of cloves, citrus and a touch of banana. Decent, easy drinking beer that was very refreshing after a hard afternoon of yard work.
