The pour reveals a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Good aroma bubble-gum and bananas, the flavor is also good and has the same combo of bananas and bubble-gum. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. After going through three wheat beers, a golden ale and a honey ale, it felt great to sample an interesting beer, this nicely done hefeweizen.

Very nicely done hefe. A little overly heavy with the banana esters, but rather refreshing on a hot summer day.

A lighter hefe than last years version which made me drink more of these on the hot night we stopped in. Nice pour good lacing on tap. Nicely spiced, but a bit to much banana I think. Overall a good job on this Hefe.

Cloudy yellow and served with a lemon wedge. Sweet aroma and the taste is mainly spice, yeast, and fruit. Banana and clove combination in the aftertaste. Tasty but missing something.

Damn the wedge!

Served a cloudy yellow/amber with a small, white head. Classic dry, wheaty aroma with banana yeastiness and an alcohol-affront similar to their St. Nick’s Strong. Moderately bittersweet throughout with light acidity and sourness to finish in a chalky ending.

Pours a hazy light orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is med. heavy banana with light clove and vanilla with a touch of citrus. Flavor is heavily acidic, maybe a bit infected. Bananas are somewhat there but nothing can really get past the acidity. Super light body. Some possible cinnamon in the background Almost a cross between a Berliner weiss and a hefe.

lots of banana in the aroma (ow!). cloudy apricot color, nice white head. way too banana-y for my taste. not a very appealing brew. reminicent of a banana popscicle.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Tap and served in the tradional weizen glassware, I made sure they didn’t add any fruit before hand.

Pous a nice cloudy yellow haze with a big fuffy white head and excellent lace. Looks the part of a grand hefe and smells like one too with heavy esters of banana, clove, lemongrass produced by traditional yeast. Could be still a bit bigger on the nose and there was a off-aroma of soap detected sadly. The taste is it’s downfall. Sure there is some nice yeasty notes of fruit and wheat but it isn’t has crisp or sharp as I would want. Missing the spice and/or lemon notes. The feel is equally so-so and missing the snap and refreshment I would want in a top-notch hefe, again another brewery that could gain a lesson from Piece on how to make a great hefeweizen. Good try but doesn’t meet potential. Still geek worthy at least one time.

Served in a pint glass with a lemon slice. Very cloudy yellow with a slowly falling egg-white head. Very big up front banana nose and taste, then a slight bit of clove and citrus. Bananas may be overdone even for this style, although that may fade as the beer settles. There is a bit of malt and bitter aftertaste lingering on the tongue after a few sips. Still, I ended up squeezing in the lemon slice just to cut down on the banana flavor. Just seems to need a little complexity.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Very hazy yellow with a tall rocky white head, this brew has timely arrived at the start of hot weather in Chicago. It has a strong yeasty aroma, lots of banana, and a whiff of lemon zest. The flavor is full of banana and bubblegum with a refreshing zing of wheat driven, lemony acidity. Great stuff for cooling off in the shade on a muggy day.
