A: Hazy straw yellow, small but persistent head of foam, minimal lacing. S: Banana, clove, wheat yeast. T: MIX of cloves banana and wheat. Im thinking, this fits. M: Kind of thin bodied but not out of the realm of the style. O: An ok example of the style but not an exemplary example. Glad to try it.

Can. Cloudy golden orange with long lasting head and some lace. Nice banana and subtle clove aroma but theres a hint of something vegetal in at. Nice soft honey peach fruity wheat tangy sweetness with mild mineral and hay bitterness in clean finish. Medium very soft body. I cant place the aroma thing, but Im going to give this the benefit of the doubt -- maybe its me -- because this tastes and feels like a top notch hefe.

16 oz. can purchased at 7 Eleven, Kittery, ME. Canned on 6/3/16. Lightly hazy golden color with slow dying head. Aroma is banana, clove, light amounts of bubblegum.

The flavor has cereal grain base with the correct German yeast byproducts. The carbonation is low but for me its still ok. The body is medium with all the correct flavors and no flaws. I killed the can easy, but I really enjoy the style overall. I feel some have been a tad harsh to this.

Bulk_Carrier (5934) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Draft at On Tap Bar & Grill, Essex Junction. Yeah, so they poured it into a pint glass, but I think I get all appropriate characteristics of the style for this one. Heres the rest. The appearance was a cloudy burnt rusty orange color with a bar pours kind of slim white head that quickly dissipated. The smell started off with all of the normal characteristics of a good hefeweizen = strong sweet bubblegum up front and then the banana esters and a sly amount of clove. The flavor is basically the same. But the aftertaste leans more towards the sweet bubblegum than expected with a definite sweet bubblegum finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation rides fairly light. Some stickiness, slightly leaning towards the bubblegum, clove doesnt hit as hard as could have been like some other hefeweizens. Overall, Id say its a good one for the most part, could be a decent starter hefeweizen for people who like the sweeter side of a hefeweizen. I didnt mind for me.

Howler Purchased at brewerys tap room in S. Burlington,VT. Enjoy the hazy, yellow-gold color and its aroma with banana and pear as well as a bready smell. Fruity, bready, grassy tastes with light carbonation. A watery aftertaste is a negative, however, a very nice beer. Glad to see them in my neighborhood!

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Bought directly at the brewery in Farnham. Pours a cloudy golden of good opacity topped by a finger or so of creamy off-white head showing pretty good retention and lacing properties. Some pretty vivid carbs can be spotted through the dense robe. The nose is yeasty, doughy, some green apples or Williams pears. Some lemon peel in the back. The taste is dominated by the yeasts (had the yeasts be given more room, the brew would have come out cheezy), giviing the brew a doughy backbone paired with pears, apples and melon. The hops do come through with a fresh grassy features lifting up the yeasts even more. Nice round body with a hint of sharpness from the carbs. The finish is long and mellow of ripe fruits. Very fruity and refreshing. Cheers!
