COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top-fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a cloudy light gold with a white head that lasts through the beer. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with a hint of light fruit and clove. Flavor is similar, sweet grain and wheat with light spice.

Bottle generously gifted to me by jcwattsrugger (aka cheersjohn) on my way out of the hotel on Sunday, thanks John!
Pours a hazy orange with a decent sized head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is spicy, sweet, & clove forward. Fruity but not all together banana like.

The flavor is awfully sweet, I mean it hits a lot of marks for a Hefeweizen no doubt, it’s very spicy & has a nice banana character. The bubblegum character is extrodinarilly heavy here and really tends to dominate any more subtle or pleasant flavors.

The beer sits remarkably heavy on the palate and doesn’t display the sort of liveliness that this style needs to carry the sweeter fruit and clove notes happily across the tongue.

I am surprised at how true to style they were with this one though.

This is cloudy orange with a head of fine white bubbles. It actually smells pretty nice: a touch of banana with some earthy and floral notes. It has creamy texture with vigorous carbonation. It is sweet enough that it cloys even in a small sized sample. While that does bring out the fruitiness, it gets sticky and gross pretty fast.

@bus. Pours a light yellow appearance with a wrote head. Soapy, lemon, a touch yeasty aroma. Somewhat bitter surprisingly. Twangy lemon. Dull wheat flavor. Bleh.

BelgianBeerGal (3241) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle at Rhino’s for our hail. Lemony citrus aroma. Nice full flavor with more citrus and nice wheat. Good, maybe a little heavier than your typical German hefe.

Pours a hazy dark golden with vigorous carbonation. Big white hefeweizen style head. Clove and hop aroma. Taste is sweet pale malt, banana, clove and bread dough. Slight hop bitterness at the close. Quite good and refreshing.
