Typical wheat beer. Murky, lightly golden lager. Banana and clove nose and flavor with citrus fruit notes. Medium-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish. Good, fruity, refreshing beer.

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.

Drew (2411) - 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.

2.4
scraff (2121) - 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…

3.2
roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2008
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.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Date: 08/23.08, draft at Front Street Brewing in Wilmington, NC

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.

3.3
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.
