COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hannah’s is a bold tasting, traditionally brewed weizen with a slightly higher than normal starting gravity, hop flavor and alcohol content. The aroma of this beer seems to portray ingredients such as clove, cinnamon and allspice but in all honesty the secret is our special German yeast strain (and fermentation regimen).

Pours a medium golden peach, with a large creamy white head that mostly lasts, lacing in sheets. Aroma is dominated by banana and clove, with a bit of breadiness in there as well. Flavor follows the aroma, with lots of banana and clove. Medium bodied, and another etremely drinable brew from the Tap. Something about the beers here makes them super easy to drink - no off-flavors, very smooth, and just plain old addictive.

Hazy yellow color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma of bananas and lemon. Flavor of bananas, lemon and bubblegum. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2005
Mild, grainy, citrus, spicey aroma. Opaque yellow body with decent white head that diminishes rapidly to cover. Graininess in the flavour is sweet with some light citrus and banana, light spices and a sugary finish. Light and somewhat watery body. Carbonation much too low for style. Sampled at the brewpub with ClarkVV, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2005
New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #26. Sample at the brewpub, joined by the locquacious and sagacious ClarkVV. Banana-cinnamon nose emanates from a solid opaque gold body with the requisite head...sweet-sour bready flavor is nice, but doesn’t quite hold up, undone by a thinness in texture. OK.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Cloudy opaque yellow, no head. Cookie bready nose. Christmas candy, spruce, cloves and dominating nutmeg deny the weizen qualities. Just too spicy and not relying on its ingredients enough. Cinnamon and dried bananas never manage to overtake the nutmeg. Watery texture confirms the lack of interest.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2005
Broad-shouldered cloves and nutmeg dance drunkenly atop an opaque, unfiltered curtain...Brash yeasty bitterness whirls amidst a somewhat stale mouthfeel, as a neat bubblegum burp pops up...All over the place, very flavorful, but maybe not cohesive enough to attract me into getting another...

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 On tap January 2005. Completely opaque (hazed-over) dark straw yellow, small, fleeting white head. Aroma of clove, light soapiness, sugar and some vanilla. Flavor is phenomenally sweet. It seems like they add a couple tablespoons of cane sugar to the pint before serving. Yikes!! It’s got a good enough yeast and consequently an ester profile, but it’s just way too much on the sugar. American hops flavor tries to balance, but dosent succeed, IMHO. Slightly watery body, lightly bubbly texture.
Rerate Well I’ve since had this two more times, one of the times, at Bukowski’s tavern, being a horrible, soapy, bland, watery mess and the second time, at the Tap, being a good deal better than each previous time. But it probably balances out in score to an average weizen, which I feel it is. Needs some crispness and more yeast in the flavor, with much less wateriness. No head retention, and not even much head to begin with.

Pours a hazy yellow. Lots of clove in this one. Slightly watered down. A good example of a german hefe.

On tap. Cloudy golden yellow with medium white head. Taste is a typical hefe with some banana and spice, but it's a bit too bland. Not bad, but nothing special either.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Hazy golden. Big banana nose. Small dissipating head. This one is all clovey, banana, fruity, yogurt, a bit thin, finishing crisp and refreshing. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
