The yeast attenuation appeared great. Hints of citrus and banana esters dominate this beer. Although I am not particularaly fond of Hefes, I feel as those that are will want to try this one.

Draft at Camp Hill location. Pours a cloudy/hazy gold color with a white head that settles to a film. Aroma of banana, malt and some spice. Medium body, good mouthfeel, taste of nice malt and yeast. Finish is a little sweet. Not a bad hefe! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WIfe ordered this draft at ABCs Gettysburg Gateway brewpub, served weizen glass with orange slice. Hazy orangy-yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat malt sweetness, banana, clove and faint spices. Taste adds a light note of lemon citrus, bread and yeast. Light body, moderate carbonation, soft, creamy with crisp finish. Alright hefe, on the sweet side and little bland.

On draft at the brewery, this pours a hazy straw into the glass with a nice thick soapy head that diminishes to soap lacing. Big banana notes upfront (unripened and ripened) and esters finish with a nice clove accent. The mouthfeel has great carbonation and is perfect for a hot summer day! Nice German hefe here.

I havent had a brand new, really outstanding German-style hefeweizen in a while. Along comes the ABC Hinterland. This hefe is absolutely outstanding! The beer pours a cloudy dark straw color with a light white head. There wasnt a whole lot of lacing inside the glass, though. I found a lot of banana and spices in the nose. The flavors are delicious, with notes of banana, clove, floral hops, light yeast, caramel, light malt and a touch of mint.

Draft at the Collegeville brewpub. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is standard banana and clove. The taste is heavy on the banana and has a solid mouth feel. Decent.

Tap at Appalachian Collegeville, 29/11/13. Hazed orange yellow with a thin off white head. Nose is banoffee pie, yeast, wheaten loaf, lemon rind, banana, light spice. Taste comprises lemon rind, light sugar, clove, toffee, banana. Medium bodied, dine carbonation, subtle spicing in a crisp finale. Ok Hefe - ticks the boxes for the style.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Pours hazy/cloudy yellow with thin, fluffy, dissipating head. Smells of mild to moderate caramelized banana, brown sugar, lemon, a subtle bit of evergreen and grain. Flavor is of clove, grain, slight banana, bit of lemon, mild piny bitterness. Texture is also grainy. Fails to really distinguish itself within the style. Not bad, but totally not interesting.
