12 oz. bottle thanks to weihenweizen, nice brew. Label reads 3-5-15. Really? Most wheat brews fall off quick, this didn’t. Big yeast phenols, banana, clove and light spice.

The yeast profile is about as authentic German as you can get, nice esters. Body is medium with a light chewiness. The finish has the sweetness plus light spicy notes. Nicly made.

Banana wheat hefe smell. Taste is wheaty hefe with a dash of banana but not much. Overly high carbonation with some foam.

weihenweizen (2196) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from shrubber85 poured into a weizen glass. Aroma is big clove, medium/light body, medium/light body, medium/well carbonated, little small-bubble lacing. Taste is clove, banana, bubblegum, and yeasty backbone. One of the finest American hefeweizens I have had.

arminjewell (8622) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, wheat, some slight coriander and clove into a bit of white fruit, slight lemon. Taste was a mix of wheat, grass, lemon into a bit of biscuit, bread, some spice into a hint of vanilla, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

Bottle: Hazy, golden-yellow with a tall white head. Orange, banana scent. Tangy, banana, orange, wheat malt flavour. Light but, full flavoured. Very pleasant.

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of banana, light spice and wheat grain. Flavor was lemon, cracked wheat, banana and clove. A nice example of the style.
