Bottle@home. No head. Golden slight orange. No carbonation!! Crazy banana spicy coriander flavours. Dry slight tart. The lack of carb and head lowers the rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is dark orange with only a mild haziness. The head is surprisingly nonexistent for a hefeweizen. Even an aggressive pour yields very little cap. The aroma offers some bubble gum like sweetness. Banana, clove, sugary candies. The taste is a little better than the aroma, lacking the cloying sweetness I had feared. A bit of prickly carbonation, in spite of the nearly still and lifeless appearance. Overall, a pretty solid beer.

Bottle split with Chris. Pours a very murky dark gold with medium off-white head. Nose of wheat, banana, clove, light citrus. Medium body, assertive carbonation. Taste of banana, citrus wheat and spice. Decent.

0.65l bottle. Golden/reddish color, white and not very stable head. Aroma is a mixture of all possible aromatic profiles of a Weißbier, banana, clove and yeast. Taste is a bit more banana, somehow spicy. Medium body, medium carbonation, low bitterness.

Good hefeweisen. Strong banana flavors with a flowery finish. Really lacks a good aroma.

Bomber compliments of AndyReynolds - pours honey orange with offwhite head leaning on white. Banana wheat with pepper. Love the style and this is a good representation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home, really big thanks to TheAlum for tracking down this Hefe-Whale for me! Pours a fairly hazy, a touch reddish, dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Aroma has some banana and citrus but really is overloaded with clove and nutmeg. The flavor is a bit more to my liking with more banana than the nose along with a light tartness, citrus, wheat bread, and spicy chewy yeast. A bit tangy, fruity aftertaste. There is a bit of chlorine / dishwater notes when it warms up but it’s not horrible. Flavor tastes fairly close to its Bavarian brethren. Pretty chill Hefeweizen. I’m not sure I would put this in the very top tier of American-made Bavarian Weissbier, but it is pretty good.

Heavy on the bananas as the music is on the mus-zac. Sorry, but for a hefe, this beer rocks! Bold as fuck! I dig it.

I hate hefeweizens but again, three Floyd makes every beer awesome. Fruity wheat and grassy taste. Good for the style
