Our hefe is made with 50% wheat malt and only pure German wheat yeast. This yeast which shows in the cloudiness in the beer also creates the delightful clove vanilla and banana aromas. Truly a unique beer, taste Bavaria through Thirsty Dog today. IBU=10, OG=12P, 5.2%ABV

On tap into a pint glass. Appearance is a hazy gold with a one-finger sized white head. Aroma is all esters: banana, nutmeg, cloves, orange peels. Taste is sweet, fruity, and esters. Pretty solid beer, I don’t understand why it has such a low rating on here. Maybe I just got an awesome glass.

Orange coloured body, some white head. pleasant enough wheat aromas. Taste a bit orangey, cloves,bannana bread, and above average mouthfeel, although some carbonation offset. Decent drinkability, though not terribly.It’s the style but not the best representative.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 I am a big fan of this style so perhaps my standards or expectations are a bit too high but this one ended up disappointing me. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky apricot color with a small foamy white head that left some lacing. The aroma was tangy with moderate clove and a light tart and citric presence and a bit of an industrial undertone. The flavor was bready with moderate clove and light notes of bubblegum, coriander and cardboard. The finish was medium length dryish bread , clove and cardboard. Moderately full bodied. Uninspired.

Pours a orange color with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast and wheat. Pretty smooth with a bit of bitterness at the finish. Not bad.

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Old bottle which allowed the yeast cake to settle quite nicely to bottom and allowed for an initial pour which was bright and clear vibrant yellow, but after rousing the yeast, turned it a darker hued cloudy burnt orange with wispy clearish white head, that quickly fades. Surprisingly, this had exactly the notes you look for in a german hefe - banana, clove, vanilla, light breadiness. Crisp and refreshing, but with a velvety mouthfeel. Honestly, this is pretty damn good for an american try at the traditional style.

Bottle. Nose of heavy mineral water and the light band-aid that makes me cringe at the thought of how this yeast has been treated. Still, some nice vanilla and honey notes in with the citrus. Gradient golden pour with a very noisy sudsy white head. Bubblegum taste on flat wheat, a little too crisp and too near to metal. Light vanilla and very faint banana bread. Slimy and oily medium body. Not great, but hit the spot - refreshed.

Pours a cloudy, amber color with a white head. Aroma is of wheat, coriander, lemon, and some yeast. Flavor is more citrus then the aroma was. Overall it’s a decent wheat but not exactly what I like with them.

This poured a cloudy yellow straw color with a white head. Aroma was of banana, yeast, and wheat notes. Flavor was lemon zest and banana, also very yeasty. Impressive for the style.

Mostly clear golden pour with a quickly receding white head. Classic banana/vanilla/clove aroma. Wheat and yeast aroma pretty basic. I was hoping for a little more from this brewery since their porter and stout is so good but this is just average at best.

Smells like a wheat beer, you know, spicey and all. Pours as a pale lager but then it gets some of the gunk off the bottom to yield a swirling hypnotizing drink. No head. Tes, wheaty on the first swig but then some of those ale attributes come thru that certainly separates this brew from a hefe or a wit beer. It claims to be a hefe on the label but I think not. Goodly amount of carbonation. Not a whole lotta bitterness but certainly has personality. Not bad for a wheat ale, seems to be a little more refined than most. Finish is mild medium bitter linger.
