Hefe is the German word for yeast and weizen is wheat. The classic banana and clove-like flavors are derived from a specific Bavarian yeast. Because the beer is unfiltered, these dynamic yeasty flavors come forward. There is merely a hint of hop flavor added so as not to compete with the yeast notes.

Draft. The Silver Dollar Bar & Grill. Jackson, WY APPEARANCE ? super cloudy, wispy white head flows downriver almost instantly. NOSE ? nice clove scent, very light scent. Comes with a lemon slices in it, I don?t think it affects the scent negatively. FLAVOR - light and refreshing. Pretty good heffe. Could use a little more clove flavor. NOTES ? good, refreshing beer. Not the strongest heffe out there, but good nonetheless.

Cloudy pale pour with a single finger head. Aroma of banana and a little clove. Taste is full of banana and a bit of wheat. Big time yeasty notes, lots of esters. Light mouth. Slightly tart. Refreshing and easy drinking.

Excited to see this on PreFunk (also saw it at Bittercreek recently)... Pours with a long lasting white head atop a hazed yellow/tannish brew... Very well done Continental Hefe, phenol/ester mix is near perfect with a good punch of clove and banana esters bringing up the rear and carried by a hefty wheaty note... body is pretty thick even for an American take on the style... This should be enjoyed in a large, tall hefe glass.... Fantastic Hefe.

On tap at prefunk. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a white head. Nose is a little banana grass dough and some spice. Taste is as the nose with a little wheat touch on the end.

Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a gold body that has a slight haze and supports a white head. The mild aroma is funky and tart yeast as well as slivers of banana like esters minced into wet sun dried peach pieces. The taste begins spicy, a tad banana fruit and then mild red wine like notes that have a yeasty tart funky edge. Into the finish a sugary sweetness helps tamp down the slightly funky to tart infections.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Lemon and coriander nose. Slight note of cloves. A pretty decent example.

Fitting since I was staying near Hoback Junction. On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. A big nose of lemons and light pepper. The flavor is a clean, grainy Hefe with lemon zest and some sweet dry malt. Good.

Draft at Brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Not much on the nose. Slight banana on the tongue but not much else. Finishes kind of. Just not a good hefe.
