COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The aroma and flavor of this classic hefeweizen (or weissbier/wheat beer with yeast) is decidedly fruity with clove, nutmeg-like and even vanilla-like phenolics. Banana-like esters are also present. This beer is made with over 50 percent malted wheat, and hop rates are quite low, with hop flavor and aroma being absent. Hefeweizen is well attenuated and very highly carbonated, yet its relatively high starting gravity and alcohol content make it a medium-full bodied beer. The color is very pale. Because yeast is present, the beer will have yeast flavor and a characteristically fuller mouthfeel and is appropriately very cloudy. Alcohol by Weight (Volume): 4.6% (5.9%) Bitterness (IBU): 14 Color SRM (EBC): 4 (8)

On tap at the brewpub. The body was cloudy dark gold with a white head. The aroma was lots of banana with some glazed donuts. Little to balance out that sweet character. The taste was medium banana with some vanilla. A nice creamy mouthfeel.

This has a very cloudy straw colored body with a lofty, fluffy head. Nice lacing. The aroma is rife with bananas of all ages backed by a sturdy clove spiciness. The flavor also contains soft wheat malt, bubblegum, and a mild trace of lemon. Very nicely done. If this was Summer, I’d have brought home a growler of this to enjoy outside.

(Tap) Pours a cloudy golden color with a billowing white head. Aroma of banana, yeast, and spice. Distinct clove notes. Also notes of wheat grain and bubblegum. Some vanilla in the aftertaste as well. The factor that sets this beer apart, however, is the palate and mouthfeel. Fine carbonation introduces a silky mouthfeel at first, but then the beer really has a thick, oily finish. I thought this was an excellent hefeweizen!
