COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus hefe aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Very drinkable beer.

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2011
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.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours an amber color with a very slight haze. Very slight. Thin head fades instantly. Aroma of caramel and faint fruits. The taste is wheat, caramel and a faint hop finish. Some apple-like fruits. Medium bodied. Pretty boring.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2010
On draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off-white head that has a lot of large bubbles and recedes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Tart fruit and grassy hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of sour fruit, wheat and malt. The finish is fruity with a banana and wheat aftertaste. Average overall.

shrubber85 (7732) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Banana and slightly sour banana wheat aroma. Clear amber color with small head. Sweet-sour wheat malt and banana flavor with a hint of clove. Okay but my sample tasted a bit old - will have to try to find a fresher bottle.

12oz bottle. Very cloudy dark yellow color, visible sediment, minimal head. Dots of lacing. Sharp carbonation. Light body. Nice, thin texture. Great lightly sweet aftertaste, perfect amount of spice. Vanilla notes. Really good, refreshing.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2010
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2010
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.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at Winking Lizard Crosswoods. Hazy orange pour with a huge white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat malt and hotdogs. Muted banana flavor with creamy wheat malt and a touch of citrus.

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of foamy yellow brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was dough. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild citrus dough and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.
