Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head that retains well. The aroma has a strong sweet banana, slight spice. The taste has a medium sweetness, plenty of banana, a lighter spice than average. Nicely done.

joeneugs (6231) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 21, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It pours cloudy yellow with an aroma of cloves, bubblegum and dirty dish towel. Not so good. The flavor is better with clove, bubblegum, and a bit of lemon. Nice German yeast character without the off notes in the aroma. Descent, but not one I would seek out again.

kramer (6483) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Tap, Bethlehem. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow body with a minimal white head. Big estery nose, lots of banana and clove, light yeastiness and some wheat. The flavor is too thin with minimal wheat and yeast flavors. Too much bubblegum and not enough wheat and yeastiness. Thin and watery body with minimal complexity. Just barely passable for the style.

Just listed as Hefeweizen now on the BBW menu at 5.2%. Pours cloudy from tap. Big, big banana and clove aroma. I could smell this all day. Big estery taste notes on the tongue but not cloying. Finishes strong and dry. A fantastic hefe.

Golden white pour hazy bananas and clove in the taste with some vanilla was decent if you can deal with a good amount of clove flavor in the taste. A very good brew.

This isn’t one of the best hefes I’ve had, but I don’t think it’s the worst either. The only thing that really drags this beer down the finish and the body. There isn’t enough of a body with a hefe-like character, and the finish doesn’t contain that real ’smack-in-the-face’ type of flavor. The beer pours a beautiful, hazy orange color with a big off-white head. There is some banana and clove in the nose, as well as in the flavors. But it just lacked that extra flavor that puts other weizens over the top.

hopdog (11984) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On tap at the BBW Brew Pub and listed as just ’Hefeweizen’. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Served in a .5L Hefe glass with a slice of lemon. Aromas of lemons, bananas, cloves, ’sweaty’ wheat and a trace of bubble gum. Tastes of citrus, lighter bananas, and lighter cloves. Thirst quenching on this hot day.

Tap. Yellow cloudy color. Aroma is of lemon and banana. Odd mix that just wasn’t quite balanced. The spice flavors were present but kind of weak.
