UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 23.06.2013, tap @ Boston Beer Works Canal St.:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wheat, yeast, banana, hay, dough. Taste is slightly citrusy and grassy, light malts, hay, citrus peel, cardboard, almond essence, grass. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Boring!

I found this to be a little too much orange, not really the typical light tasting hefe, heavier and tasted like it was brewed with orange peels. Ok, but the least favorite of the 3 beers I tried that night. Didnt really taste like a hefe.

Cloudy golden color. Frothy white head. Staunch wheat aroma. Nice and cloudy. Woodsy flavor. Good enough to enjoy for an outdoorsman. Anytime! Thank you!

Beer Works Hefeweizen - On draft in Salem. Pour was hazy straw colored, lacking full cloudiness, partially filtered? The lacing was good. The aroma was bananas and faint phenolic spicing. The flavors were caramel and bananas, lacking a real phenolic presence, included even a slight sour element. Mouthfeel was only medium bodied for the style.

Tap @ the Fenway Location. Unfiltered and cloudy with a half inch frothy head, excellent appearance. Too bad thats the best aspect of this beer. Light bread nose. Taste was light yeast and nothing else, you really need the lemon or orange wedge because it just didnt have any flavor. A very poor example. In fact Im not a fan of a chain restaurant that brews beer. Thats all this place is.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2011
had at the fennway location on cask. Clouded yellow with touch of orange. Aroma was a little clove and bannana with some grain behind it. Taste was light yeastiness, was improved with a lemon wedge. Clean cool palate. not amazeing by any stretch but a good choice for those who might wind BW a little plain.

Draught at the Boston brewpub. Good clove aroma. Hint of banana. Cloudy yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is a tad bitter for the style, but OK. A little banana and clove also, but not too sweet.
