dmschefke (570) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Pours an expected slightly hazy gold with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma obvious of wheat, yeast, banana, and minimal spices. Flavor matches well and comes together nicely, not my favorite style, but this makes for a nice refreshing brew, definitely better than the ratings it gets.

"nice flavor and malty backbone to this one, but not enough to really seperate it. slightly better than average. enjoyable, but not worth going out of your way for. better option than Pyramid."

A decent wheat ale but misleading to label it "Hefe". Decent wheat notes but no banana or clove.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a tulip glass. A: Pours a hazy yellow "wheat" color. Small white head (???). Not much lacings left (a real Hefeweizen would have a huge head) S: Very discreet to a "Hefeweizen" beer. It does not smells the traditional "banana & cloves". It smells malt and hops. Not bad but... T: Follows the nose. It does not taste like a Hefeweizen, Itís a malty and refreshing beer but thatís all M: Light body and low carbonation D: Not bad [ BA Review @ 12/14/2010 ]

Bottle pour. Somewhat hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has big banana and coriander notes. Taste is more bland bready sweetness. Moderate carbonation. Light mouthfeel.

Brookfield254 (5) - Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2014 does not count
Bottle from Hy-Vee Wine & Spirts in Cedar Falls, IA poured into a Weizen glass. Pours a nice yellow/orange but lacks much of a head and what little is there dissipates quickly. Aroma was of bread with fruity notes. Taste was the same but with a somewhat bitter finish but this appears to be typical of the American Hefeweizens. A bit hoppy for my tastes but a good American beer nonetheless.

Not a lot of good here. Not pretty in the glass, some hop bitter but not quality. This is very reminiscent of adjuncty beer.

Pours a hazy yellow with a small head and a citrus aroma. Refreshing taste, but plain overall.

Mr_Hops (116) - Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2014
This beer pours an opaque dark golden color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma is purely wheat and yeast, and the taste is slightly sour and a touch sweet. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a fairly abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
