COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name pretty much describes the beer. "Hefe" meaning "with yeast" and "weizen" meaning "wheat". Our version used approximately 60% wheat malt in addition to the 40% malted barley. The result is a light, slightly tart ale that’s hazy in appearance. The perfect beer to quench your summer thirst.

DalzAle (1967) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2009
Drinking right now at the release. Very hazy orange pour, little carbonation and plenty of banana and clove aroma. Flavor was great! Orange, clove, banana and good and pleasant funky yeast on the finish. A nice welcome to the summer beer season. Surprised this one isn’t rated higher.

An alright beer. Pour is a light orange with no head. Aroma is a mixture of banana, cloves, yeast and wheat. Flavor is mainly the same of the aroma, balanced nicely. Not a huge fan of banana flavor. Palate is thin and yeasty aftertaste.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
On draught at the brewpub near downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick white head that slowly dissipates to a thin and creamy head. Aroma of light banana and yeast scents, a touch of cloves, and some white multi-grain malts with wheat. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with an average hefe style flavors of banana esters, cloves and a touch of bubble gum. Finish is semi-sweet, with a lingering banana and yeast aftertaste.

Tap: May ’06. Looking at these ratings, not sure what is going on. Cloudy orange, decent head, lacks for a hefe though. Huge banana aroma, tons of clove. Flavor much the same, straight forward banana an dclove. Nice chewy/yeasty character near the finish. Carbonation lacks a bit, but overall a very nice brew.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2008
Tap pours hazy gold, short lived head, no lace. Aroma of spice and some hops. The flavor has standard clove banana and some hops with a nice refreshing palate. Pretty good.

[Growler, thanks for sharing Badgerben!] Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by wheat with only a little banana showing through as it warmed. Taste is also pretty grainy with light banana. Mouthfeel is a little thin, but it does have a decent finish. The banana could be a little stronger and I was surprised that I didn’t notice any clove. Either way, a somewhat average hefe.

[growler] shared by badgerben. Poured a cloudy gold with a largeish off white head. Not a whole lot of aroma, but some yeast and tartness from the wheat present. Flavor is wheaty, with banana and yeast. Mouthfeel is light and a little chalky with a dry finish.
