COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A South German-style hefeweizen. The beer is characterized by a fruity and pheloic aroma and flavor. Hop flavor and aroma are absent and low hop bitterness. A medium bodied beer with high carbonation. The color is deep golden. The unfiltered yeast makes this beer cloudy. Available in the Summer

Courtesy of MIBRomeo. Low concentration aroma of typical Hefe smells...yeast bannana, clove and some perfumey notes with hints of citrus. Body is a cloudy yellow and the head never really gets formed before it fades completely away. Yeasty fore, spice notes some slgihtly tart acidity, cloves and mild creamy bannana notes. Sorta tastes like a Hefe/Wit hybrid. The lack of a head and light body really detracts from the enjoyment of this style.

Bottle. Pours a yellowish haze with a nice white head on top. Aroma is clove, banana, wheat, and lemon. Flavor is clove, banana, and lemon. A decent summer beer but nothing special at the same time.

12 oz. bottle, courtesy of Monger. Cloudy grapefruit appearance, remarkably small head for a German-style Hefe. Cloves most present in a medium aroma, a bit of coriander. Tasted much closer to a wit beer than a full-blown hefeweizen. Bananas come out most fully in the finish. Light on the carbonation. Sessionable.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, light yellow ale with a tiny, fizzy, white head. Has all the appropriate hefe esters and phenols in the aroma and flavor. Lightly smoky. Perfect balance, but thin and watery. Fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean. Not a favorite style of mine. A shout goes out to kmweaver for sharing the bottle.

Cloudy gold, with a weak head, especially so for a Hefe. Good phenolics, smooth banana. Sweet start with a well done tangy finish. Full bodied, filling. This just needed a good, tall, classic Hefe head to really shine. A good one just the same, worth re-trying.

Bottle. Pours a medium tan head with an aroma of wheat and bananas. Slightly sweet and dry. Not much after flavor to it.

On tap at the Tyranena tasting room. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a larger sized white head. Aromas of stronger cloves with some bananas and light wheat. Tastes of bananas and cloves. At times, I was also getting a pepperiness too. Props to the bartender for asking if I wanted a lemon slice instead of just putting one in there.

Light yellow color. Smell of yeast and banana foster. I like this smell alot. Taste of alcohol, yeast and bananas. A tangy wheat aftertaste.

Sweet banana and bubblegum aroma, followed by the wheat grain, very small head,somewhat odd for a hefeW, tart banana and bubblegum taste,light clove in background, also a little wheat can be detected. I liked the sweetness involved, also the ester emphasis,but just a touch more malt body would be better
