Drought. Slightly hazy rich yellow color, small white foamy head, fresh citrus aroma, sweetish orange peel taste, fizzy with a long finish. Lasting orange peel taste in your mouth.

Rustyham (1807) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Deep honey color with no head. Sweet thick fruity aroma. Flavor is champagne like, a bit heavy. Too heavy for me. Tastes like wheat wine. Sticky and thick.

Homer321 (2857) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Draft at warrenville. Huge banana aroma with light bubblegum and clove. Taste is less yeast forward. More of a creamy wheat flavor and a silky mouthfeel. Not much banana in the flavor but overall a decent beer.

TH28 (264) - - JUL 11, 2015
12oz bottle. 8/23/15 code date. Appearance: Cloudy light golden, with minimal white head, especially for style. Aroma: Banana is strong, with some clove as well. Typical weizen yeast. Taste: Sweet, grainy maltiness, with a hint of banana and strong clove. Bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slight creaminess and slickness in the tongue. Carbonation is low for the style. Finish: Banane esters and clove phenols linger retro nasally long after the swallow. Overall: Great weizen yeast character. This serving is under carbonated for the style, but well wishing code date on bottle. Tastes good but a bit overly sweet, almost cloying

EtTuCthulhu (1385) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2015
The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma has a lot of banana, but there is also some wheat sweetness and vanilla. The taste is quite sweet and a touch sour with a strong banana flavor supported by wheat graininess. The palate has an average carbonation, which should feel pleasant on the tongue, but the thin texture and medium-light body don’t support that carbonation bite on the tongue.

UrbanCaveman (167) - Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a bright and sunny straw gold, mildly cloudy beneath a fluffy white head. Smell: Fruit and spice drifting above a ripe wheat field, redolent with notes of banana and clove. This is one of the first US "hefeweizens" I’ve smelled that has given me hope that I’m actually about to taste a traditional hefe. Taste: Tradition confirmed. This beer billows with banana and bubblegum esters, atop a tastefully understated mix of clove and coriander. While nothing particularly stands out, that’s not exactly a bad thing - this actually drinks like a hefeweizen. Mouthfeel: Light while bordering on creamy, this is a quaffable brew! Overall: I am quite pleased to have found another US version of a hefeweizen that is not a pale wheat ale with a misleading title. Will definitely repeat.

Draft @ Titanic brewing. Pours cloudy golden orange color with white head. Aromas of banana, clove, orange, and wheat. Similar flavors. Medium body with lively carbonation. Refreshing.

sonnycheeba (4296) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Tap. Pours slightly hazy gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is banana, cloves, wheat, bready malts, faint floral notes, and faint spice. Flavor is rich malt flavors, faint caramel, banana, faint spice, and plenty of fruity yeast esters. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (3347) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Draft at the Clarendon. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like light creamy orange, wheat, dried fruits, and toasted malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like creamy wheat, citrus, light gum and dried fruit.

HighlanderOne (1079) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Poured from bottle. Smells like a jelly sandwich. Ugly orange gold with no head. Pear and banana dominate flavor, with clove and a bit of pepper in a dry wheat base. Could use a bit more carbonation. Bottle is just past its "best by" date, which might explain its feel. I like this, and will look for a fresher one in the future.
