COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an unfiltered Bavarian-style wheat beer. It has banana and clove notes in the flavor and aroma. A refreshing, hot weather thirst quencher.

On tap at brew pub. Cloudy yellow. Nose of a lighter German hefe...with some citrus in there as well. Flavor was pretty subdued, and very light bodied. Not for me.

(Sample at Uncle Billy’s on August 2, 2008) Served with an orange wedge… at first sight this looks like grapefruit/orange juice. Solid, cloudy. I notice that none of these samples seem to have much head. After a good amount of citrus goodness goes straight up my nose (there I go again), I feel the full aroma. Spoiled by the orange, I remove it. I still smell the rind on my fingers. Suddenly every encounter I’ve ever had with an orange flashes through my mind. Its aroma is citric, nothing more really. It’s flavor, though… you can actually taste some hay (unless that’s all psychological), with serious orange and lemon. Not sure why they would add an orange wedge to intensify this. I think I’d be drinking orange juice if I had left it in. I dig the palate, though. Thick, well-constructed. Lively, but not carbonated, tangy. Tastes natural, alcoholically, of course. Really not that bad.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2008
On tap at the brewpub; nice cloudy yellow color with an average white head. Aroma was predominantly banana/bubblegum. Lacked much spicing or balance in the flavor. Found it a bit sweet; lacked great flavor for me, but it definitely was solid. The beer looked and smelled really good.

kidmartinek (3623) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2008 Deep, cloudy yellow, candy sugar sweet aroma. Aroma is also very dirty, dirt earthen and beertank-like. Very cloudy, Small lacing. Fizzy mouth feel but not overly so. Just enough to be differently satisfying. Bold strong wheat flavor, accentuated by the fizz, but the taste is a little watery on the finish. Taste also has orange citrus flavor. The fizz lingers on the finish for a minute or more which is very satisfying.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Draught. Lemon and banana aromas with various yeast subtleties. Cloudy yellow with a good white head. Hardy and refreshing. Good balance of acidity and bitterness with some spice and ester presence.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - DEC 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 An outstanding hefeweizen! Cloudy, ochre colored with a nice head & lacing. Nose is clightly citric, with some clove touches. Flavor has perfect tartness intermingling with cloves. Yeasts are not banana-like, but certainly play with your tongue. Awesome carbonation, with lots of fancy bubbling. Quality brew.

From sampler- came with lemon, bad bad bad, wanted it without to try first. Cloudy yellow in appearance. Aroma of wheat and fruit, nice. Hit the mouth a little watery, some fruit taste did stand out, but was gone long before it was swallowed.
