COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

22oz bottle from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a hazy, orange-golden colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, egg-shell white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice, soapy lacing. Aroma is grainy wheats with a bit of a breadiness, slightly tart lemon, a light banana, a touch of vanilla, and some clove and coriander phenols. Flavor is better. Nice, slightly grainy and sweet wheat malts up front with a pleasant, very lightly tart lemon citrus throughout. A light banana note, some clove, and a touch of coriander before this finishes clean with a light yeast spice, banana, and slightly sweet wheat. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, clean and smooth body with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid hefe. The aroma wasn’t quite my thing, but the flavor was nice. Slightly sweet wheat malts, a light banana, lemon citrus, and a soft spicing. Clean, balanced, and easy drinking. Not bad.

Pour on tap, very hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, clove, slight banana, touch of biscuit, bread, hints of earth, touch of vanilla and lemon. Taste is a mix of lemon, white fruit, touch of clove, banana, finishing fairly dry and spicy yeast. Pretty nice, but not super complex.

(bottle) Pours a very hazy gold color with a thin white head and adequate lacing. Certainly looks the part. Aroma starts out on a muted and somewhat disappointing note, with the standard middling hefe aroma that’s dominated by the grain which supresses the estery yeast. More bread than banana. Light dijon mustard and white pepper. Has this spiky quality to the nose, which I don’t look for in hefes, as I seek more roundness. The flavor is much the same, with plenty of wheat dominating the proceedings, and only once in the finish is there a pleasant effect of what I can only describe as a bowl of cream of wheat with dried banana chips in it. Just a glimmer of goodness. The brewer did nail the palate however, as it’s really quite rich and creamy, and they avoided the dreaded lemon water flavor and texture found in many. Overall not a bad go at a hefe, but it really didn’t suit my tastes, although it does possess some redeeming qualities.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a hazy lemon orange with thick frothy white head. Aroma is hay, clove, bread dough. Flavor is a mix of banana, clove, caramel. Body is creamy but offset with very active carbonation.

Draft at republic. Nice banana aroma. Beautiful murky light orange. A little lighter bodied than I was hoping, but still nice.

ryanfolty (2391) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft at the brewery on June 22, 2012. Pour was opaque cloudy yellow that looked like it would be really thick. Aroma was banana and clove. Taste was similar plus some spiciness to it. Medium thickness and a bit of carbonation. Pretty good but not sure I would go back to this time and again like with some others in its style.

Tap at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Another nice one from Jason! Cloudy yellow pour, white head. Wheat, clove, and a touch of banana. Good hefeweizen.

Hefes are not a style I really like, but when I drink them I at least can compare them to others I have drank. This was drank from a fresh growler. Aroma was strong banana and clove. It got me semi-hard. It was a nice aroma. This beer tasted like an American wheat with a touch of clove and banana. It was a big letdown. Pretty thin body. Blerg. . . I wish some people would say more with their rates. Maybe it’s just me?

Growler. Very hazy apricot colored pour, lasting 1/4 inch head and a little light creamy banana. Flavor is slightly creamy initially and then thinned out pretty quick on the mouthfeel and a slight hint of the clove and oddly effervescent. Definitely smelled better than it tasted Unless the recipe changes, I won’t be picking this up again.
