At an elevation of 4,293 feet on the SW slope of Mt. Marcy, lies the well-spring of the Hudson River. Pure and clear, here the river begins a wild 315 mile tumble to the greatest city in the world. Headwater Hefe is unfiltered and brewed in classic Bavarian style. Using imported wheat and barley, this beer is lightly hopped with hints of banana and clovein the aroma and finish. Serve in a tall glass to enjoy its billowy white head, reminiscent of the Hudson Headwaters. Don’t get over your head. Drink Responsibly.

On tap at the source. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a one finger bright white head. Light wheat, clove and banana on the aroma. More of the same on the flavor. A bit on the tart side. Medium bodied and "sparkly" in the mouth. Pretty nice hefe.

Draught @ the source. Hazy pale yellow with creamy white head, wheat aroma, high carbonation, medium bitter wheat taste with little hint of cloves, thin body, medium bitter finish. A bit too bitter for a hefeweizen.

Tiny shortlasting head. What the heck kind of crap is this? Aroma is sulfury, old potato cellar. Taste is washwater, sulfur, potatoes. Little bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Horrible!

12 oz bottle pours murky dark yellow. Not much aroma. A bit of orange wheat and banana taste.

Draft. Hazy yellow orange with a white head. Lemony and banana fruity, light yeasty spicy notes, and light bitterness in the finish. Good stuff.

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy yellow color with a white head yielding some nice lacing. This has clove, banana, herbal spice, hay, and a little stale wheat grain throwing it off just a touch. This is a good beer though. Everything pretty much works making jt an enjoyabke refreshing brew.

Bottle from Oliver’s in Albany. Sorta hazy and lighter in color than a usual German Hefe. Nice spice-fruit aromas. Flavor is very good. Light body. Slightly fizzy at first, but better as it goes. Flavor is nice and wheaty. Some clove. Light banana. A very good effort on a style that sometimes seems hard to get right.

12 ounce bottle pour. Cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Nice banana ester aroma. Vlassic german hef. Decent showing of style.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Yellow pour with white head and lace. Wheaty malt and corriander. Wheat, clove, and banana flavor. Light bodied and a tad fizzy. ok beer
