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.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Yeast orange and wheat on nose. Slightly creamy mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Finishes with yeast, wheat, citrus, slight vanilla, and clove. One of the better American attempts at a hefeweizen. I was surprised at the likeness to a German hefe.

Cybercat (5121) - Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Strong aroma is yeasty and wheaty with an undertone of orange. Pours a clear, rather wan yellow with a frothy white head - let us hope that appearance is the one weak spot. Flavor, fortunately, is better - yeasty and wheaty, a hint of citrus, not outstanding but still refreshing. In the body and fizz departments, mouthfeel is about average. OK if not the best - give it a try if you like this style.

Cloudy, golden pour with a nose of banana and cloves. Taste is mildly sweet with a distinctive banana presence. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Very nice.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2012
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.

jrob21 (3434) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2012
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 (5757) - 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 (4803) - Woodstock, 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.
