Not a bad beer. Nice banan notes, it is light and refreshing, a good biergarten beer.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Haymarket in Chicago. Hazy bright yellow pour with a really nice white clingy head. Wheat, mild banana, and light citrus in this, but it hits a little flat on the tongue.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewery (Naperville, IL). 2nd new offering of the day. Pours a rich hazy dulled yellow gold hue. Touches of washed out orange with a deep murky golden dulled hue. A frothy offwhite almost eggshell white head sits atop, dies to a film and laces ok. Sticks around as a firm film. Aromas are a clash of fruity esters and cloves mixing with a rich floral and citrusy hopping. Apple, banana, and pear with spicy cloves meet bready malts, wheat, and a firm lemony hopping, florals, and grass. Bitter fresh hop nose starts to take over. Touches of grapefruit, citrus rind and oils, and zest. Bready malts, fruity esters, dry earthy hops. Initial is medium bodied offering some dank earthy hops up front paired into bready malts, lemons, and touches of banana and pear. Touches of spice, dry earthy hops, gentle clove and a richer citrusy middle start to take over, grapefruit juice, zest. Middle and backend really grow on me, with flavors growing, good balance especially interesting into middle and finish which really win me over and the hops really start to take over. Nose is ok, front end is a bit yeasty and Hefe driven as the hops take over into the middle and backend, that note of straight grapefruit juice is really enjoyable. Overall, a solid beer that gives some life into the middle and backend for hop heads. More Hefe driven than I expected.

Draft at so, pours hazed golden yellow with white head. Aroma has a nice citrus orange peel kick with banana and subtle cloves. Really nice nose. Flavors have bitter tangerines and grapefruit rind, rather sharp metallic yeast character, prickly feel to it. Odd Hefeweizen yeast here comes off more Belgian perhaps it’s a blend, it started promising but the buttering hops and yeast combo is astringent, bitter, and metallic. I like a hoppy Hefeweizen but this needs a little work.

burg326 (3525) - Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2012
On draft at brewery, poured a light cloudy yellow color, aromas of pineapple, banana, yeast, and some citrus. Flavors are the same with some light spice followed by hops inthe aftertaste, dont think I ever had hops taste like this in the aftertaste in a wheat beer, interesting, and unexpected.

pantanap (3350) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at the source... Pours a hazy fairly bright, hazy golden hue and topped with a frothy soapy white head... Aroma of footy grains to pair alongside citrusy notes of orange and tangerine... Flavors are more of the same, less footy, with emphasis on the orangey citrus. Light grain on the backend with barely a trace of bitterness although a little comes through in the finish. Lighter than medium bodied with lighter than a stage carbonation .

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is strong citrus hops mixed with a good amount of banana, some clove, and a grainy wheat backing. Lots of floral grapefruits with some tangerines, lemons, a light earth, and some grass. Flavor is similar. Bitter citruses mixed with a good amount of yeast and esters giving off some banana and light clove notes. Somewhat grainy and bready wheat malts with a good amount of florals before this finishes earthy, dry, and moderately bitter with a light spice, crackery wheat, and a good amount of citruses. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid hopped up wheat. Citrusy, bitter hops that mix with a nice hefe base. Good beer.
