Great Hef. Easy drinking, refreshing and just the right amount of banana without going overboard.
Pours golden/amber with a nice haze. Tastes and smells like a grainy hef ought to. Light on the palate without being watery.
On tap at the Venice taproom. Hazy golden orange with a one-finger head, good retention, and very nice lacing. Strong bready aromas with a touch of citrus and yeast. Flavors were similar, with a nice addition of spices. Sweetness yields to a slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body, lots of carbonation, and a nice soft mouthfeel. ffbot (430) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pour is a nice semi hazy gold with a thick and lazy head that retains decently and leaves some sloppy lacing. Smell is ripe lemon, malt, and a nice citrus bouquet. Taste follows, it’s tart forward but balanced with a long lemony dryness to it. Marheb (5901) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 13, 2015

Hazy yellow golden colour with a small white head.
Yeast, mild dryness and wheat in the aroma. Like a real Weizen.
The flavour is yeast, wheat, dryness, mild bitterness and some grainy notes. Not a regular American Hefeweizen but a real German Hefeweizen.
nice for the style, all the requisite parts (banana clove and bubble gum with a hint of citrus) play parts. good hefe. DSG (15035) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/17/15] Draught at Firestone Walker in Paso Robles. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of banana, bread and a spicy hint. Sweetish flavor with bread, banana, graininess and a spicy finish. Quite light-bodied. Bacterial (3027) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Hazy pale yellow pour with a slight white head. Wheat nose and taste. Pretty simple and straightforward. Slight yeasty finish. daniele (9444) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2014

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Part of a 6-pack sampler at The Yard House. Pours very cloudy, the way it should. I could smell the yeast, and I’m glad it was a small amount, because it was RICH! But, that’s what I expect from a heffe.
