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.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy deep orange-amber with a huge white foamy head. Very nice wheat and bready yeast aroma. Highly carbonated. Full mouth feel with a bready yeast and wheat flavor. Very refreshing and pure. No clove, banana or other added flavors, just wheat and yeast but still very enjoyable. Much better than other American brewed beers of this style. I liked it a lot even without the added flavors. Simple, pure, and very good for this 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.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 Bottle. Banana, orange, lemon, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with huge off-white head. Sweet banana, orange, strong clove, wheat malt and straw aroma. Bitter clove finish. Pretty good.

Bottle from giant eagle. Nose is banana and clove with some wheat. Decent yeast fullness and banana, clove and spice in there but not too strong. Not great but decent.

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.
