Had this on draft on Thai 9 restaurant in Dayton, paired with a spicy thai vegetable and noodles dish. Cloudy golden color, thin head receeded to a small collar around the rim by the time it was served. Wheat, grass and hay with an orange citrusy aroma. Pleasant orange flavor with some spice flavors detected like coriander. Dry finish, light bodied, good carbonation. Lite, clean and crisp, very refreshing. Reminded me a bit of Oberon. Paired really nicely with my spicy Thai dish.

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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle, purchased @ Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI. REAL Hazy yellow nearly orange. Normal carbonation, with yeast floating around. Pleasant nose of Bavarian yeast and a bit of orange. A pretty good take on a German Hefeweizen. More citrus then clove, but still the body and yeast is right on the money. fF you like this style you should like this brew. Well made and has drinkability.

Color of fresh apple cider mixed with orange juice. It’s murky, making it hard to see the average carbonation with lots of yeast sediment floating on the bottom. Aroma is of Bavarian Yeast and a hint of citrus. It is smooth on the tongue, with orange and yeast. The first sip was slightly sweet. But as it warms the sweetness isn’t as noticeable. It’s medium bodied in the mouth and it reminds me of a German Hefe. Very smooth to drink. Glad I picked it up at Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI. Drank with AirForceHops-Of Course.

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.

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.
