On tap. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a thin, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of wheat malt, banana, bubble gum and yeast. Tart flavour of wheat malt, lemon zest, grass and clove with a crisp, dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Disappointing. wombat23 (1415) - Texas, USA - APR 29, 2017
12 oz. can. Pours murky bronze with a small fizzy head that completely disappears in about three seconds. Aroma of banana and clove. Taste is weak banana, clove, a bit of pineapple(?), peppery notes. Watery finish. Disappointing. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Light and effervescent is right. Watery flavor and body. Clove and lemon. Another boring beer from BD. Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of light citrus. taste is watery lemon peel. Plain. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2014
(bomber from Sparky, thanks E!) Pretty warm out on this 11th of June, so I figured a hefe would be a good drink for the evening. Pours a very cloudy light yellow-orangish color with a medium white head that settles to a thin white cap. Aroma holds a rich cornucopia of scents, with some creamed corn, big time wheat bread, must, more wheat bread, mineral water, lemon zest, and more wheat bread. There is no trace of the banana or clove in my estimation. Flavor holds more of the Mendota Springs mineral water with lemon flavor, some more bread, and a glimmer of sweetness towards the finish that has a faint trace of Cream of Wheat with dried banana chips and vanilla. Finish snaps pretty good and is quite refreshing. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, but it could stand to use a little more carb. The creaminess is one feature of this beer that is present which I seek in the style. Overall this is a decent hefe, but it needs some work in the aroma.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a head of huge bubbles that quickly dissipate... not impressed. Aroma is faint but pleasant: caramel, hay, floral, grass, light citrus, some dough, light butterscotch. The smell is the best part of this beer IMHO. Flavor grew on me as I drank more (I’m up grading the flavor rating as I type): Medium sweet, very little bitterness, and medium sour, quite enjoyable. A slick light to medium bodied palate with an abrupt lightly bitter finish. Probably wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase again BUT wouldn’t mind drinking it when in the mood for a Hef’ and pickings are slim. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Hazed yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light sweet wheat. Flavor is sweet wheat and floral hoppiness. Light medium body with smooth carbonation. DuffMan (10421) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at the brewpub, Vegas. Cloudy pale yellow with a thick meringue crown. Lovely smooth and wheaty with soft yeast, spicy clove, light banana, and a lightly tart finish. Man, this was a really good hefe! Ron (3955) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 1, 2013
On tap at Bib Dogs casino at Vegas. Poured a nice cloudy unfiltered grapefruit looking glass with small head. Aroma of citrus and clove. Flavor of citrus, banana and clove. Good stuff. jb (3250) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Had at the brewpub. This is a very well done version of the German classic. Bananas and cloves all the way.
