On tap: The aroma consists of banana, wheat, light citrus, apple, and clove. It’s a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small white head. The flavor starts with wheat and light banana. The finish has light citrus/lemon with a touch of clove. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

tap at Wrigleyville. Easy drinking. Orange and wheat aroma. Middling mouthfeel, which is a little light for this style. Carbonation is right there. A bit sweet. Altogether a summer beer. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2011
[Tap] Part of a sampler at GI-Clybourn in early September. Pours a dark golden color with a cloudy body. About an inch of dense white head on top. Nose is of clove and vanilla, with lesser amounts of banana and bubblegum. Tastes like a typical hefe, with more of a phenolic taste to it. Mild wheat malts, sweet honey rolls, and decent banana notes throughout the taste. Good flavor profile, but I was hoping for a slightly better body. It’s not bad, but not great either. Still very drinkable. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap at GI Clybourne.Aroma: Banana, light cloves and bubblegum. Appearance: Slightly hazy gold. Taste: Sweet, banana, lemony, light spice, not yeasty at all. Palate: Smooht silky palate. Highly drinkable. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Flight on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a glowing golden hue, touches of orange, with a loose white decent sized head that dies to a small film, laces small. A sturdy wheat haze. Aromas are the typical fresher banana esters and clove, wheat bread, touches of vanilla, and flaked wheat and bready cereal malts. Sweeter, but gentle. Initial is a lighter end of medium bodied Hefe, preaching banana esters, some pear, with bubblegum, touches of cloves. Moving into wheat bread, flaked wheat, cereal grains. The fruity esters clear up a bit more on the back of the palate, with some smooth vanilla and banana, Nilla Wafers, with some bubblegum. Pretty nice, fresh and lively, I’d like the fruit esters to pop a bit more but this is quite drinkable, with a nice mellow growing sweetness that doesn’t interfere. Quality brewpub Hefe, not quite my top of the barrel, but very nice. A decent, fairly fresh brewpub Hefe with a decent body. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Listed as Hefe-Hawks Win at Gi Wrigleyville. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Aromas of clove, banana, yeast, and bready malts. Flavors of orange, banana, clove, yeast, and bready malts. Mouthfeel was rather thick for a hefe. Carbonation was a little on the light side for the style. Not a good hefe, but not a bad beer overall.
