Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a small head of bubbly white foam. The head fades super-fast, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a yeasty smell along with other aromas of a more wheaty and bready smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of fruit and spice, with the fruit being a mix of orange, banana, and pear and the spice being of a clove and coriander nature.
Taste – The taste begins as a blend of fruit and wheat with the fruit being of an orange and pear nature. There is also a decent showing of some yeast and spice from the start with these flavors getting stronger as the taste moves onto the end. The spice is heaviest of a coriander nature upfront with more and more clove and pepper joining later on. Other sweeter tastes of banana and a slightly candied sugar taste join the flavor profile later on, leaving one with a rather sweet, yeasty, fruity, and nicely spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the fruity, sweet, and yeasty tastes of the brew the feel was rather nice making for a rather crisp and refreshing but flavorful brew overall.
Overall –A rather nice easy drinking and slightly sweeter and yeastier hefe. Not a bad summer style brew.

Thanks, James McBrewer! Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a nice cloudy light amber color with full white foam, some lace. Very aromatic yeast, banana, apricot, some clove and black pepper, some mild malty aromas underneath. Flavor was very mild and balanced, not too sweet, not too bitter, notes of bread and caramel, biscuits with honey, lots more apricot. Light body, chalky/yeasty mouthfeel, very refreshing dry finish. A nice true-to-style Hefeweizen with some added fruitiness. Tasty. pinkzambia (2124) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Tap: cloudy gold with a small white ring head. Aroma of rubber, spiced apples, blunt yeast. The flavor is yeasty, tangy banana with kind of a weird aftertaste. Not a fan.

A cloudy golden body with a white head. Head had minimal retention and no lace. Aroma had some nice bread and wheat malts upfront, some soft pepper notes with mild lemon/ Flavor had a good wheat malt base and a subtle presence of lemon and pepper. There was a bit a sweetness in the finish. A nice smooth body, with minimal carbonation. A easy to drink. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2011
