Can at 2008 goat races in Phoenixville. Pourd a crisp golden with large head, bananas and wheat, perfect for a summer day, although not quite what I had in mind after all those dunkel lagers. A decent beer nonetheless.

jgb9348 (4857) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a straw yellow tint and a very thin, single centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, corn, coriander seed, alcohol, grain and a bit of curacao and even some full oranges. Medium-bodied; Assertive wheat and yeast flavours up front with a definite bavarian and german kick to it, all with a very smooth presence from said malt and a light assertive sweetness that shows some honey, corn and curacao and perhaps even a touch of bubble gum. Aftertaste shows a nice fresh, sweet, and especially easy-drinking profile with no bitterness or unpleasant flavours, just a smooth flavour and profile throughout. Overall, a very nice and easy drinking wheat with a lot of flavour and a depth so typically bavarian that you would think that it came from the South of Germany and not Pennsylvania. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from the Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington, Virginia on 24-September-2014 - Thanks Kevin, sampled at home in Washington on 11-November-2014.

Aroma: wheat, banana, grains and caramel. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue initially, fresh grain, some wheat, then sweet banana starts to dominate, soft carbonation. Overall: very nice Hefeweizen, great banana aroma and palate. Can from The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey.

Can from Mr Barleywine, thanks for the opportunity! Slightly hazy light golden color with a smallish quickly dissipating head. Earthy floral spicy with a hint of funk. Light sweet bready light sugary maltiness with light citrus and hints of earthy and funk. I could see some of these in my warm days future if they distributed here.

Transfer from BA review on 9-23-13- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy orange-yellow color with a small one finger fizzy white head. The head fades rather rapidly, leaving very little lace and a somewhat persistent thin white film on the top of the brew. Smell – The aroma is quite nice. It is rather sweet with lots of orange citrus and banana smells. Along with the citrus is a big smell of a yeasty and wheaty smells as well as some lighter aromas of a little bit of grass and herb. Taste – The taste begins with a rather wheaty and fruity taste with lots of banana. As the flavor advances a yeast cake taste come to the tongue along with some quite light notes of clove. All the while the banana gets even stronger and is joined by flavors of an orange and lemon nature. Some very light grassy and haylike flavors come to the tongue at the end, leaving a sweet, yeasty and fruity hefe flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a brew of only 5.6% abv with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are quite nice for the yeasty flavors of the brew giving it a very sweet wheat bready feel. Overall – A rather pleasant Hefeweizen. While nothing out of this world, it is easy drinking and a good blend of sweet, fruit and yeast producing a good drinker overall.

Can from unknown courtesy of Michael K. Pours a slightly hazy orange, not too much off white head. Aroma estery, some citrus, banana character, very fresh and effervescent. Body lively with a nice bite on the back end, bananas and some citrus, grapefruit. Like a an ultra-smooth German Hefe has a baby with a more rabble-rousing American hoppy wheat ale. Different, but ratings are justified.

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick 1"+ head. Aroma of yeast, malt and a touch of banana. Flavor is typical of a Weiss, mainly yeast and sweet malt. Medium body, finish is slightly bitter, clean. Very good, a new favorite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Reagan National Airport. Who doesn’t want a beer while waiting for a flight? The beer is hazy yellow, though not quite as hazy as I was expecting for a weissbier. Aromas of wheat, bread, banana, light spice. Sweet snd grainy with banana and clove. Perhaps a bit too sweet. Refreshing and easy drinking. One pint was plenty, whereas the great German hefeweizens keep you coming back for more.
