Pours slightly cloudy and straw-colored with a thin white head. Aroma consists of yeast, banana, and spice. Up to this point, it’s much like other hefeweizens. It’s in the taste where it is different. The palate is a bit heavier than most hefeweizens and slightly oily. Malty and sweet describes the flavor with touches of banana, honey, and spice. Finishes clean. A great beer that is unfortunately retired. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, coppery body with a tiny white head.
Smell: Mild aroma of wheat, yeast, maybe a touch of citrus. So light!
Taste: Flavor of malted wheat with a slight tanginess. Mildly sweet hint of honey. Banana, lemon, and spice present, but it’s all at rather muted levels. Finishes dry with some yeast lingering into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Soft mouthfeel.
Drinkability: I could use a bit more carbonation, but overall it’s a pleasant hefe-lite weizen. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 According to the Capital website, this is a retired beer. I am bummed. this is one of the few American-made Hefeweizen that taste like the German equivilent. This beer has a very smooth flavor with banana, clove, and a special guest peach flavors. I wish I could get more of this. Driftwood6 (214) - USA - JUN 1, 2007
In bottle during the morning of Dark Lord Day ’07. A well done hefe, but nothing outstanding. I guess I just compare everything to Schneider, and none are quite that smooth and flavorful. But a well done beer by our friends up north. Tmoney99 (14481) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2007
