COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Bavarian-style unfiltered wheat beer is brewed with 50% malted barley and 50% malted wheat. Our signature blend of German yeast strain imparts a flavor and aroma reminiscent of bananas, cloves and bubblegum.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of lace left behind. Zesty spice aroma with some pepper, coriander and clove along with bready yeast, light fruit and citrus.  There’s also a subtle banana character but the citrus/lemon and spice notes are most prominent. Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a really nice balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, light fruit and crisp citrus.  Heavily spiced with strong clove and pepper flavor that’s nicely complimented by citrus juice and lemon zest.  Slightly tart with some banana and bread notes toward the finish.  Well balanced, really refreshing and easy to drink.

Cloudy yellow color. Toasty grain and light wheat. Crisp grassiness. Banana and a little grassy finish. Slight bitterness but a yeast bitter not hop bitter. Decent but nothing I would die to try again.

PhillyCraft (3222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2012
On tap at PH, pours a murky gold straw color, thin loosely bubbled head, no lacing. Aromas of spice, lemons, german yeast, and grains.The commercial description is dead on with regards to flavor, tons of clove spice, orange peel, bubblegum, coriander, underripe bannana, and yeast. Aftertaste is spiced, with a little peppermint vanilla. Very refreshing.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Illegible, smudged dating on the neck of the bottle, unfortunately.

Appearance: Pours a lightly clouded, pale gold body with a small-sized, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Very gently toasted golden wheat nose with smooth banana notes and spicy clove accents. A little lemon showing moments later.

Taste: Malty wheat with some crunchy toastiness to it, perhaps a low touch of grain. Lightly honeyish quality and not overtly sweet. Faint, faded lemon fruitiness, then, the near-ripe bananas followed by spicy notes from the clove phenols and German hops. Drying finish pointed by the crispish carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Passably refreshing and sufficiently representative for an American-born hefe.

my only real complaint is this was a little too filtered to be a german hefe. it looked more like an american wheat or wit. but otherwise, probably in my top 2 or 3 of american made hefes. i hope they make this a regular part of their lineup.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2012
On tap at Rattle N Hum, July 2012. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of spices, bubble gum, pepper and glove. Drinkable but not that interesting.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle. Hazy pale golden pour with a medium-sized, fluffy white head. Aroma was lots of clove, bubblegum, creamy banana. Flavor was that plus some light malt. Fairly sweet. Creamy, slightly thick mouthfeel. Solid hefe.

drowland (6033) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2012
7/16/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden pour with a nice off-white head that cuts in half but lasts and laces in foamy rings. Creamy banana aroma with light spice and a definite creamed corn aspect. Very nice flavor though with cream, banana, marshmallow, light spice, esters, and more. Surprisingly good based on some of their other offerings.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle: Pours a hazy golden color with a thin off-white head. Yeasty aroma has hints of bananas, lemon peel, wheat, and cloves. Flavor is banana and wheat with a spicy tingly mouthfeel that finish with a mild dryness. A refreshing and well-done Hefe.
