He Ain’t Heffe is our take on the traditional German hefeweizen. An unfiltered wheat beer, it has a big nose full of banana and clove, a light and fruity flavor and a very small hop profile. Sweet and refreshing … a great lawnmower beer!

Possibly my favorite wheat beer period. The banana, brown sugar notes are epic and it has enough flavor to make this hop lover buy it whenever liquor express sells it. Outstanding.

On tap. Hazy golden with a film of cream. Nose is banana, clove and a touch of herby resin. Tastes are the same with some caramel and a finish showing some wheat toast. Near-medium body is to the dry side and has medium carbonation. Pretty good American take on the style, albeit a bit hoppy.

Flight at heaven and ale with Brian. Great example of a German Hefeweizen. Definitely in filtered. Cloudy and thick. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Draught at the Straight to Ale Taproom, Huntsville, AL. Hazy golden colour with a tiny white head. Yeast, wheat and mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, wheat, dryness and bitterness. Somewhere between American Wheat and German Hefeweizen. Quite tasty anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Easy to drink and very palatable. Doesn’t have a strong after taste. Perfect consistency, not too thick but not watery.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Murky yellow, thin white head. Lots of banana, bubblegum, and pineapple in the aroma. Nice soft palate. Nicely sweet, fruity, and yeasty. Banana and bubblegum, hint of dry hops in the finish.

Tap at brewery - pours a clear filtered orange with a finger of white foam. Aroma is banana and brown sugar(?), but very little, if any, clove. Taste is sweet and finishes dry. Overall, solid but a tad boring and not exactly true to style. That said, it’s yummy and comes in a 20 oz glass for $5 at the brewery, so good value for money.

Draft at taproom. Pours yellow with an inch of white head. Pretty clear for style. Big banana on the nose as well as on the tongue. A bit dry on the finish. Solid for style.

Pours a hazy pale gold with a large white head. Lots of banana, wheat, some clove, a pleasant yeastiness. Just a touch of bitterness. Soft carbonation, light mouthfeel.

Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy pale with a creamy white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Great aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The flavor was slightly more subdue than the aroma but a nice banana, spice, and yeast blend found. Light body, light carbonation, and wheat and yeast aftertaste. Nicely done! It’s always nice to have a great local hefe during the southern summer heat.
