12 oz can. Pours hazy straw gold with a small white head that quickly disappears. mfrato (110) - - JAN 28, 2013
The aroma is sweet wheat malts, banana and a little clove spicing.
The flavor is wheaty malts with some sweet fruit and banana and some earthy yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.
Overall, an OK hefe. Lots of banana and wheat. Sweet and watery.
Fantastic amazing beer. On tap at the brewery, possibly the best German hefe I’ve ever had. Huge banana taste! flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Cloudy golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is light with a predominant banana flavor. Drinkable and tasty. wilnatp (730) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Tap @ Dry Dock on 1/14. Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with lovely lacing. Banana aroma. Not a lot in the taste but a wonderful aftertaste. Good Hefe.

GABF. Cloudy yellow/gold pour with a fluffy white head. Yeasty and spices are up front with some nice wheat notes. Flavor of coriander, a hint of orange, wheat, crackers. Nice brew. DiarmaidBHK (6266) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle from heritage liquors. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Big fragrant nose with lots of banana. A bit dry on the tongue but the banana notes are still big. Clean finish. Very nice. GarrettB (1746) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Summer 2011 - Dry Dock holds a special place in my heart. When I evacuated Japan after the 2011 earthquake, Colorado was where I returned, it being home and a refuge with family support networks. And Dry Dock was a surprisingly important part of that. It’s where I went with friends to shake off the the general stress of a summer spent like a ship listing to port. I had momentum, but it was taking me in circles. Dry Dock reminded me why I enjoyed beer culture and breweries - good people, experimental brews, and fascinating variance in the beer itself. I premise this by saying this is a negative review, and that there is a positive review coming. The first time I had Dry Dock Brewery’s Hefeweizen, it was from a bottle and spent over an especially heated board game. I didn’t like what I had. The second time I had their Hefe it was fresh from the tap, and was a totally different brew. Today I’m writing about that first go - insipid and flat. There was very little head, and the beer poured a dark tapioca, almost like an aged cedar plank brown. I should have suspected that the bottle was bad, but I lowered my nose anyway. There I found a thick aroma full of corn tortilla, light pepper notes and cracked wheat, but not much else. The carbonation felt appropriate on the first few tastes, but grew limpid later as I tried to reconcile the faint flavors with the mouthfeel. Soft overripe banana, a mid-taste shudder of hops and a light astringency delivered their flavor, and then hurried out the door, leaving almost no aftertaste, and no satisfaction. Admittedly, this was a bad beer, and it turned me off of Dry Dock. It was my first beer with them, and I had high expectations that this would be ideal for a summer board game session. It was only later when I took a trip to the brewery proper that I was able to recognize how good Dry Dock really is. puboflyons (3626) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 6, 2012
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. The pour was a hazy pale yellow with a large foamy white head and considerable carbonation. The nose pleasantly wheat-filled with banana and citrus zest. The body is light and smooth. The taste is a fine example of a Hefe with crisp wheat, yeast, banana and a low bitterness. I liked it. Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2012
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 On tap at Rackhouse with friends. Poured hazy orange in appearance with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Sweet bananas, biscuit, big bubblegum, lemon zest, biscuit, citrus, and wheat in the aroma. Taste is spice, banana, clove, yeasty, a touch of sweet malt, biscuit, hay, bubblegum, fresh melon, honeydew, melon peel, and dough. Medium body with high carbonation. Damn decent hefe and a lot better than I remember it. Nice stuff!
