COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered Bavarian-style wheat ale. The special Bavarian yeast used lends a distinct clove and banana aroma with just a touch of citrus bitterness on the palate. A very light summer beer with a very full mouth-feel. Available June-September

I had a sample of this at the Flour City Brewfest in Rochester NY. I was disapointed in the Hefeweizen. It must have been the sourness. Maybe having 30 other beers 1st had something to do with it. I did not finish this one.

Dark and hazy amber color with yeast in suspension and a thin head. Nice aroma of bananas and bubble gum. Weak flavor of bananas, maybe clove too. Very full and creamy body.

No head, super yeasty-cloudy...end of keg? Clovey smell, slight bubblegum, pear notes. Nice wheat overwhelmed with chalky and sourish yeast notes. Not enough esters; apart from the sourness, it’s kinda bland.

Opaque tan; slight clove notes. Fruity, with some barnyard in the aroma. Hint of acidity. Funky, unique, interesting. It is basically a German hefe, with low phenols, where there is some brettanomyces or related mutation in the US. It adds a fascinating dimension to a beer that would otherwise be an everyday beer. So while the infection/mutation is not entirely deliberate, the brewer had the good sense to keep the beer because the effect is very desirable.

12 oz. Bottle: This one was a cloudy, somewhat orangish-golden color. There was very little head. Fairly strong yeast and wheat aroma. Maybe a hint of citrus (but not hoppy) in there also. Somewhat sweet taste, which actually turns slightly sour in the aftertaste. A bit bland, however.

Golden colour - a bit darker than a normal wheat, with a very thin white head. Slight yeast & wheat aroma with a hint of lemon. Light to Medium-bodied; Subtle yeast & wheat flavour with a bit of honey sweetness. Aftertaste subtle and sweet with a decent honey flavour. Overall, more of an American Wheat, but fairly nice for the style. I had this pint on draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.
