I love Hefe’s and FFF’s so I was excited to try this. It was no surprise that their take was a little different and had a lot of strength to it. The banana scent was a little lesser than some of the big Hefe’s, but the taste was stronger and more complex.

On tap at fff brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with nice frothy hefe head. An aroma of citrus and banana with a corn-esq undertone. Nice refreshing brew with big banana fruit and orange with a mildly tart finish. A nice start to the day.

Draft at the brewpub. After a long weekend of drinking, lunch here was more challenging than I would have wanted, so this was my only FFF beer of the day. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a small white head that fades and leaves only a little ring. Notes of banana, clove, wheat, apricot, pears, honey, and a bit of tangerine citrus. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel. Pretty straightforward hefeweizen; this weekend was eye-opening in that I found a few fairly straightforward beers from FFF for the first time ever. This brewery truly does it all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy/hazy pour. The nose is loaded with sweet banana, a bit of light clove and some lightly smoky phenolics. Very wheaty nose with a bit of soft spiciness. Fresh-tasting with a great balance of spice and malt. Yeast is quite expressive and there are some other light fruity aromatics on the back. I get just a touch of herbal hoppiness on the back of the palate as well. A zippy tartness toward the finish… it would be pretty easy to knock a few of these back.

Pours a hazy amber with a thin film of off-white head. Rich clove and spice aroma. A good, full flavored example with a rich sweetness and spicy character.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma:Smells heavily of clove and banana.
Appearance:Cloudy pale orange, medium head retention, mild lacing.
Taste:The flavor is like the nose, heavy clove and banana. The mildly sweet flavor lingers on pleasantly through the aftertaste.
Palate:Nice carbonation, medium body.
Overall:This is a spot on hefeweizen, very typical of the style. It’s a good example of how Three Floyds isn’t a one-trick hop pony!

tap at firkin. i was expecting some crazy hop twist or something strange from three floyds, but this turned out to be a pretty run of the mill hefeweizen. not a bad thing though. typical banana, pears, and clove notes. good, refreshing, tasty, light beer. happy it wasn’t too big and boozy. good, but not as great as some german versions of the beer.

Tap at Birrerria Paradiso in Georgetown. Paired with lemon goat cheese tart and pickled asparagus. Cloudy pale golden color, edge head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste is slightly sour and bready with a bit of grapefruit. Decent enough.
