Draft at the brewpub. Oh, the ills of so many American-attempted hefeweizens. Lemon juice. Super light yellow funk. (#5778, 10/7/2014)

On tap, at brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow body with a minimal fizzy white head. Very lemony nose with touches of bubblegum and ripe bananas. The flavor is a little thin, but there’s some character here. Light banana bread and maybe a touch of clove. Finishes with a little yeast. Mouthfeel is thin and fizzy up front with a little clinginess and light fizzy carbonation. Overall, not terrible, but it could use a little more yeast influence and a better, more soft texture.

On tap in the Kutztown local. Hazy light pale yellow. Light citrus and wheat on the nose. Pale hop wheat texture with mild bitterness. Some banana notes.

deep yellow and cloudy, not really even tranparent. very sweet, some grapefruit, some bubblegum...a bit watery and not that spicyness that i like in a Hefe.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Tap @ the brewery. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a 1" thick head. Nose is wheaty and citric. Flavor is citrus, pleasently sour, with a nice wheaty body. Somewhat sweet but lacking that banana undertone which I so love in a hefe and could have had a bigger mouthfeel. None the less, I enjoyed the refreshing qualities of this brew.

Nejhleader (1559) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2007
This wasn’t much of a hefe. was a tiny bit cloudy, bit of a citrus flavour, body was like most of there brews a bit watery.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
On tap at the Golden Avalance Brew Pub. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Served with a lemon slice. Aromas of clove, bananas, and citrus. Tastes of clove and wheat with very light bananas.

Appears a hazy light gold with a small pure white cap that slowly fades into a collar. Little streams of carbonation pump their way up to the top of the glass. Smell is of Bavarian yeast, banana, cream, clove, and sulfer dioxide. I asked the brewer, Chris Rafferty, about the sulfer smell and he agreed that it is there. He also said that he felt that it belonged there with the style. Taste is of the banana, beautiful wheat, bubblegum, clove, along with that funky sulfer that is slightly obtrusive but not overly offensive. Mouthfeel is sweet, crispy, smooth, and semi-dry.

on tap-pours a white head, with plae yellow color that has just a slight haziness. Aroma is wheat. Taste is wheat, something unpleasant, and watery.
