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.

Travlr (15918) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2010
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.

GT2 (9360) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Pours a massively opaque light orange/yellow with a thin, creamy, dense, white head. Okay lace. This is a spot on hefeweizen and I can see why the German beer judges were not happy that FFF was able to put together a near clone of Weihenstephaner. Nose is full of overripe bananas and bubblegum. Taste is light-bodied, slightly tart, full of bananas and bubblegum. Moderate mulled spices/cloves. Spritzy on the palate to almost a bit too light. Very good for the style.

On tap at the parmount room,poured a cloudy yellow whith heavy lasting foam. Smell of corrinder, bannana, spices, and malts. Taste light and crisp. Similar taste to aroma. Expected more from a 3 floyds brew burt still a pretty good brew.

Tasted on draft at Whole Foods Lincoln Park. Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of spices, wheat, and light banana. Flavors are citrus acidity, wheat, clove, and banana. The body is light with average carbonation, and the finish is medium featuring banana. Overall, this is an awesome hefe that I could session on all day.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2010
On tap @ Revolution Brewing. Pours light blond with a fluffy white head. Heavy aroma of banana and clove. Really like body though - almost a bit thin compared to the strong aroma. Decent hefe though.

Cloudy gold with big, creamy, white head / Big, dry, nose of banana, orange peel, and coriander / Medium body, creamy and dry, with good balance and long finish / Big but stylish flavors of banana, sour malt, bread, grass, orange peel, and coriander / Best hefe ever tried.

neuromatt (1225) - 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
