Cloudy amber orange sunset hue with a flat layer of head. Fresh wheat aromas pour from the glass. The wheatyness is accompanied by zesty banana notes and perhaps a soupcon of clove. This beer follows through with a fresh wheaty flavor. Vital and tasty with touches of banana and the slightest perception of clove--as if it is an element whose influence can be felt if only vaguely remembered. Top-notch hefeweizen worthy of another round. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Body looks the part but there is no head. Nose is a little orange & not much else. Vaguely Blue Moon-esque. Flavor is some banana, malt & unripe berry. Orangey in the finish. brewersspot (97) - , California, USA - OCT 28, 2010
I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh.
Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2010
cloudy orange pour with a small yellow head. great yeast aromas and taste. this is a very standard wheat beer. rayg1 (594) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours out a neon orange color with a bit of head that quickly goes into nothing. First and foremost this beer smells very good, perfect esters of clove and banana mix with a nice yeasty smell that all quality weiss beers have. However, the impressive moment is ruined on the first sip. The beer was completley un-balanced. Way too overspiced, followed by astringent and boozy flavors. Harsh. This was pretty awful to be honest. Watery mouthfeel and no realy body to it. This isn’t a heavyweight in the ABV% content but it sure tasted like it. Rough.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange-gold with a small off-white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, lemon citrus, clove, yeast, and pepper. Pretty much the same notes hit on the flavor along with some bready malts. Medium-bodied, with a wheaty mouthfeel and sweet finish. Nice, solid, straightforward hefeweizen.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a tallow-cloudy gold with no head. Good clove and banana esters with an equally good matching flavor. Certainly tastes like a rich hefe, but the fact that the beer’s head died before the bartender could get to from the tap to me (only seconds!) is a big detractor. Ask any German.

Hazy yellow color/ fleeting white head. Nice banana clove aromas. medium body. Good tart wheat, lightly sweet estery banana, spicy clove flavors. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Serving: Draft at the brewpub.
It has a slightly hazy yellow color with a foamy white head. The nose is floral, wheaty, and has a bit of clove. There is also something in there I coudln’t quite place. Sort of an earthiness. Perhaps a bit mushroom? The flavor had lots of earthy notes to it. You can also expectt some clove and a strange tart note. It’s a little blase on the palate, but overall fairly refreshing.

I sampled this beer on tap at the brewpub in New Orleans, and was probably my favorite of the five I sampled. The beer had a hazy gold-straw color with some sediment and a decent-sized, foamy white head that had good retention and cling. It had an aroma that was a mix of citrus hops, some fruit, and a touch of lemon, yeast, and grain. The flavor was a fairly zesty bitter with some fruity sweetness as well. The beer had slightly above average carbonation, but was a bit watery and thin without a great mouthfeel.
