Draft… RBSG 2010… Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. The aroma offers clove, smoke, banana and pink bubblegum… too much clove phenol. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. Well balanced flavor. Banana and pink bubblegum stand out. Mild clove here, along with subtle acidity. Crisp, fairly clean, refreshing finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is light cloves and bubble gum. Flavor has the standard cloves, bubble gum, and wheat flavors of a somewhat light hefeweizen. Alright.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was somewhat spicey, wheaty and yeast. Flavor was a bit fruity and citrusy with a nice wheaty character. A pretty decent german Hefe.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2010
Nice fruit and spice induced nose with a sour ending. Weak white head. Pours a very cloudy light orange in color. Lots and lots of suspended yeast. I better let this funk settle down before I proceed. Fruit and spicy taste a Belgian ale. The taste grows on you by the bottom of the glass.

esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Cloufy golden yellow with next to no head. Aroma of grains, grassy hops, apples and mild skunk. Not what I’d expect out of a hefe. Taste of yeast, lemon and mild sourness. Bliss, I don’t think so.

17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2009
12oz bottle. Ranked 4th out of 4 in my blind Hefe tasting [3rd Sam Adams, 2nd Stoudts Heifer-in-Wheat, 1st Victory Sunrise]. Pours a fairly ugly murky orange peach color with basically no head except a little bubbly fizz. Aroma of crackers, sweet, phenolic, honey-like, very light banana, something tart and slightly sour, a hint of vinegar. Flavor stale crackers, some sharp honey-like medium sweetness, dull flavors, light infection, seems like some stale hops as well. Tastes like dirty wheat water. Basically no carbonation, medium bodied with a dull heavy water feeling, yucky. Easily identified this beer as the Arbor as it shares characteristics with their other bottle offerings... dull, low carbonation, and infected.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2009
On tap at the brewery in ann arbor. Murky orange amber with small white head. Aroma is pure hefeweizen with banana, clove and medium sweet wheat. Flavor is sweeter wheat, banana, slight chalk. Medium to light highly carbontedbody. Perfect to style and really refreshing.

3.1
Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2009
12oz bottle 7/12/09 (Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids)-Pours a hazy yellowish golden with a big white head. Aroma of wheat and light clove. Taste of citrus, grass, and wheat. This light bodied brew has no Hefe tastes or smells. Pretty weak attempt at a Hefe.
