On tap. Called "El Hefe". Hazy amber with almost no head. Scent of banana and wheat. Taste is clove, wheat and banana. hypn0toad (267) - Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Called "el hefe" in the brewery. Very mild. Sweey. Light beer. Almost a bit watery? Not bad. Light blue moon. Coffee smell. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Draft - Dark cloudy gold, white creamy head. Soft banana clove aromas with a light white bread foundation. Earthed wheat and banana spice remain balanced and bland. Watery and thin with light carbonation. This one needs some serious help… Drew (2470) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Presented as an "organic" heffe - well, who knows? How can you tell by the taste? Anyway, it had a great cloudy Heffe appearance. Aroma was nice, couldn’t say this had any banana, but the spicyness was there. Flavor had a nice "ka-zing" and finished with a full fruitiness. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Listed as organic on the board. Hazy orange color. spicy phenolic aroma. Lemon, banana and spice

Date: 08/23.08, draft at Front Street Brewing in Wilmington, NCroder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Aroma - Fairly classic hefe aroma with banana esters and clove, neither of which is overpowering
Appearance - Hazy yellow/orange, head is somewhat small for a hefe, but some good rings of sticky lace
Flavor - Starts with some honey sweetness, followed quickly by a mild lemony tartness, and finally a soft spicy bitterness right at the finish.
Palate - Light to medium body, medium carbonation, clean palate,
Overall - A decent hefe, drinkable, refreshing, perhaps on the conservative side for the style, and this is not a criticism.
Pours cloudy brown yellow color with foamy film on top. Aroma banana very much with lots of spice. Flavor sweet banana, lemon and dough with much spiciness. Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow, light orange. Thin head with a thin lacing. Aroma was wheaty and light. The sign in their brewpub read 4.6%. Flavor was light and grassy, typical Hefeweizen. Nothing too special. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with bubbly white head. The aroma is dried leaves, banana, some spicy clove notes, and a hint of fruit. The flavor is acidic and somewhat lemony at first, then grass and lemon. Tart finish with some bready notes. Pretty good. muddyfeet (72) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Poured a murky orange-tan color. Heavy on the orange. Light on the carbonation. Aroma was full of orange and wheat. Flavor was a conglomeration of wheat, orange, cloves, lemon and just a slight hint of hope. However, there was not much in the way of a balance with the traditional hefe flavors. The orange flavor was also a bit too akin to simple orange juice for me. Kind of made me think they just mixed some O.J. with the beer after fermentation. Medium to full mouthfeel with the wheat giving this beer a nice body. Easy enough to drink but not one of the better takes on the style I have sampled.
