COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic Bavarian-style wheat beer. The German yeast we use imparts subtle banana and clove flavors that are very refreshing. Brewed with half wheat malt and half Pilsen malt. A cloudy golden-orange hue, Hefeweizen is known world-wide as the quintessential warm-weather beer.

This beer was a hazy yellow color and formed a bubbly white head that left some nice lace as it subsided. An aroma of hops, clove and corinader. A flavor of hops, clove and corindar. A very refreshing finish. This is one of the best renditions of a German style hefe that I have seen a American brewer create. It really surprised me.

Very hazy yellow, small, but frothy head. Aroma is sweetly lemony and camomily. Taste is slightly citrus, with hints of clove. Very nice, very surprising effort by such a small brewery.

Sample on tap at the brewpub. Good thin white head, leaving good full lace. Totally hazy pale yellow color. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Light tart sweetness. Solid banana aroma. Light spice. A totally fine enjoyable hefe.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2011
On tap at the brewpub in July 2009. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a slight white head and not too much lacing. Nose brings some fairly strong clove and spice notes. A moderate amount of banana. The taste is some slight wheat as well as clove, banana, and hints of bubblegum. Moderate body with good carbonation. Was a nice, drinkable brew after a long summer day.

On tap at the brewpub. Very murky yellow/orange appearance - looked a little like pineapple juice. Good spicy clove aroma with some estery banana notes. Less in the flavour where it becomes more citric and the mouthfeel is a touch light, tending towards watery.

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2008
On tap at South Street; poured a cloudy straw color with not much head by the time it got to me. Nose was a bit floral, with not as much banana and spice as I like. Flavor was just ok; not as pronounced as it could have been. Some banana, spice and fruit. Not a great example of the style, but not real bad either.

Murky yellow with nice lacing. Aroma was sweet banana and citrus. Flavor was the same with a spicy pleasant finish.
