I’m impressed by this hefeweizen. Cloudy amber body with a medium white head that leaves a little lacing. Very nice aroma of banana, spice, and yeast. Very clean and bright on the palate...good carbonation. One of the sweeter hefeweizens I’ve had. Sweet citrus, banana, and some tropical fruit notes. Finish is aptly spicy with the clove making an appearance. A very enjoyable beer.

Pours lightly hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma has banana, clove, clean rich wheat, light bubble gum and caramel. It has a medium smoothish body with lots of fairly gentle carbonation. The flavor begins with banana, bubble gum and caramel. There is a smooth wheat and huskiness as well. The finish has dry caramel, cloves and dried bananas. Really nice hefe and much better than I remember it being. Could be getting it stupid fresh as it just arrived back in MO.

Pours deep, cloudy yellow-bordering-on-orange with very little head and lacing. Aroma of clove and lemon zest. Lots of lemon in the flavor. Yeast prominent. Also some spice. Easy drinker; tasty and refreshing on this late summer day.

Notes from the Family Hefe Tasting. Pours like champagne or bubbly cider. No head at all. Aroma has grapes, and bananas & allspice. Taste is a clean grapey banana. 11.2 Finished last in the tasting, although I had it a touch higher than most.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just found my notes on this. This was received in a trade with my cousin-in-law who lives in the Chicago area.
Obviously, this was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange color with a decent looking one and a half finger-ed white foamy head that once it died, there was barely any lacing.
The smell had some apple/peach/banana-ness that was combined into a yeasty/estery/breadiness. Interesting, but unexpected.
The taste was fairly sweet with the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a pretty good sessionability running about it. The carbonation is exceptionally smooth and subdued. This is not bad for the style and good for me.
Overall, honestly, its not a bad beer, it just seems a bit different to me and I’m unsure if I’d actually have it again. Maybe if offered, but I probably wouldn’t seek it.
