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

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.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a refrigerated weizen glass. Pours a cloudy golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Some lacing and good carbonation. Aroma is clove and wheat. Taste is clove and wheat, some sourness. There are much better hefes out there.

At first taste i was impressed with the unique mouthfeel of this hefe. It is just a little syrupy and and soft. There is a nice flavor of vanilla and citrus. The only downside with this hefe is that the syrupy taste that it leave behind cuts down on the refreshment factor. I like my hefes to be a little more crisp and refreshing. You might describe this as a good "rainy day hefe". I’ll drink this beer again.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Slightly hazy golden pour with smallish white head given the style. Grainy wheat dominates... mild yeast, but not a lot of the more interesting banana/fruit/bubblegum/clove tastes that make the style worthwhile. Meh.

bottle poured a light golden in color with a thin coating of white head. aroma has banana yeast, wheat, pale malt, and light citrus that might be there because I want it to be. mouth feel is light with a little sugar on the tongue. flavor has a nice yeasty profile, light malts, wheat, and mild hops. the banana yeast is the highlight here as the base beer is just alright.
