neuromatt (1096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
On tap at the brewery, served in a Weizen glass. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. The head fades quickly, leaving a small amount of lace. Aroma is strong banana with yeast and some clove. Flavour begins moderately sweet and becomes slightly bitter towards the end while losing a bit of its initial sweetness. The finish is longish and banana sweet. Medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. My first thought about this beer is that it tasted like a banana milkshake. Initially, I thought this was a great thing, but I tired of it by the end. It is sweet for a hefeweizen and the carbonation is far too gentle. The appearance was also a bit disappointing, with relatively poor lacing. Not bad, but somewhat disappointing coming from a brewer of this calibre. 2010-05-15

Couple samples at Dogfloydapalooza 10. Actually one of my favorite hefe’s so far. Nice soft banana, light clove, light hop fruitiness. Very easy drinking. Can’t wait to visit the pub to get some on tap and give it a fuller rating.

nickd717 (3457) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 9, 2010
On tap at DLD. Hazy yellowish-golden color with a large white head. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat, and yeast. Fairly standard, but good. Flavor is similar to the aroma, with your typical hefeweizen flavors along with some citrus and spice. Medium-bodied with appropriate carbonation level. Decent stuff overall. Not quite FFF’s best, but good.

Hazy orange-yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus, banana and spice. Light body and very drinkable. Yeasty finish. I thought this was a great hefe weizen.

[(A)] Smells of fruity esters, banana, orange, yeast, dough, and wheat malt. [(A)] Hazy orange pour into weizen at pub. White head. [(F)] Sweet banana, orange, wheat. Not super complex. No boatload of hops. *gasp* [(P)] Could have been served colder. Crisp. Smooth, well-bodied, exceptionally easy drinker, as the tall glass was no challenge. [(O)] Done well. From notes in the past few months. Went with Bunker. I enjoyed this. Glad it was on, as you can never expect what will be back. Nice session beer for a hot day and cold cuts, I assume.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Tap @ FFF. Pours a cloudy orangish body with a two finger frothy white head. Big estery banana bread nose with lots of yeast and slightly tangy smelling wheat. Lighter clove notes. Pretty standard for a Hefe, but at the same time, really well done. Great yeast character and texture with none of the thinness a lot of brewpub Hefes have. Mouthfeel is full and soft with nice fizzy carbonation. Overall nothing special really but it’s really well executed. They’ll probably start bottling this and charging $15 a bomber.

tmoreau (2280) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL.,and poured to a tall Weizen glass a hazy, orangy gold hue, with a thick, tight bubbled, white head and good, clingy lacing. The aroma was ripe banana and spice as clove. The flavor added to these some light grain, a little candy sweetness, and a light note of tangy apple. Somewhat light bodied, but good carbonation. A very nice example of the style.
