COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This coarse filtered wheat ale is fermented with a German yeast culture for a refreshingly light spiciness and hints of citrus fruit. A cloudy appearance and an immense creamy head are characteristic of this lightly hopped Bavarian brew.

bhensonb (13534) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of banana with a light touch of clove, and perhaps lemon. Hazy golden color with tiny bubbles and a white head that flattened. Thinnish body with chewy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is banana, touch of lemon and some clove (but it could be yeast spiciness). The finish is dry, a little more banana, and some citrus in the background. Decent hefe.

Ratman197 (12578) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2005
16 oz. bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, bananas and light spice. Palate was light bodied, even a litte light for the style. Flavors of bubblegum, citrus, a bit of banana and a hint of clove with a sweet finish.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2012
16 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of wheat, apples, herbal notes and faint bubblegum. The taste is tart wheat, apples and herbal notes. Very herbal and spicy... like Mexican food. Thin bodied, high carbonation. This isn’t really bad or good. Truly an odd beast.

Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a huge white head. Aromas of bananas, wheat, yeast and very light spices. Tastes of bananas, bubblegum, and some citrus. Smooth and creamy body. One of the better German Hefe beers I’ve had today.

Dogbrick (10759) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium fluffy white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Light body with flavors of banana, sweet spice and a bit of grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short fruity aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

crossovert (10692) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Super fruity in the smell and clovey in the taste. For an American Hefeweizen it isn’t bad.

Sammy (10572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2011
Twist off bottle from the brewery. Hits the style, but not so drinkable. Big bannana,in the taste and in the aroma. average mouthfeel in fact a bit thin mouthfeel. Carbonation significant. More wheat, complexity needed. Have had much better examples of the style. Decent retained head.
