3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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
