BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours with way too much head and with way too much yeast. Muddy orange in color. Aroma is pleasant with bananas and mangos, heavy yeast influence. Taste is spicy peppery up front and at the finish. Heavy yeast and dryness throughout. Alcohol type tingle of the tongue and all around not a good beer. This is not a drinkable beer.

12 ounce bottle poured a dark orange color with aromas of spice, clove, wheat, yeast, and some banana. Flavors are the same, a nice wheat followed with some clove and banana aftertaste, a very nice hefe in my book. And this was an awesome extra.

Draft sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Yeasty with wheat and funk. Not too shabby.

weihenweizen (4143) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours muddy light brown with huge fluffy beige. Aroma is banana, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is ripe banana, vanilla, black pepper, yeasty, and astringent. Hard to drink.

apple_test (7) - - OCT 6, 2013 does not count
Draft sample. Poured hazy copper color with an average white fizzy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus, yeast and clove aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that met my expectations.

ryecatcher (1467) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy, burnt orangey hue, massive (not an exaggeration) rocky white head that took more time than I had anticipated to pour the whole thing into the glass -- not a beer for the ’hurried’. Nose is spicy -- lotsa yeastiness, cloves, white pepper and hint of banana. Mouth is medium-full bodied, pineapple and banana up front, then cloves and a wave of spicy yeast mingling with bitterness, then it mellows out into bread and citrusy finish. Really nice hefeweizen -- even if i did take a long ass time to pour. .

nuplastikk (6471) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2013
12oz bottle. Opens a little enthusiastically, pours with a suspect infected mega head..makes Rayon Vert seem fun. Wheats are a pretty forgiving style, and if it is infection, it hasn’t completely killed it. Not really pourable/drinkable with the massive foamy head...moving on. Has a real effervescent, quality mouthfeel...making me curious to try other Greenbush beers. Nice clove. almost lemony bite..doesn’t have much banana. Kind of harsh mineral tones. Infected...yet promising.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy dark honey color. Huge white frothy head. So big that it took a couple minutes to get a complete pour. Classic heffe aroma of bananas and cloves. Flavor is more of the same with a yeasty finish. This is a pretty nice heffe. Another nice beer from this brewery.

Nice opaque yellow. Light head lingering throughout. Good light yeasty and fruity flavor with just the right fullness of body.

4.3
jgb9348 (6512) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Super hazy golden coloured body with a bright copper glow and a ridiculously nice, three centimetre tall tan head - this is perfect for the style. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, curacao, light yeast, a touch of corn, some dough and bread and a little sweetness. Medium-bodied; Earthy, bready, yeastie flavour at first with some noticeable pepper kick at first, some light wheat, a little herbs and some hops noticeable, then the coriander seed, wheat and yeast really kick in. Aftertaste shows a good sweetness from full oranges, some bubble gum and bready notes at the back end with a good complexity and a solid, smooth-drinking beer with plenty of refreshing notes. Overall, a well produced beer that blends refreshing and easy-drinking with complex and to-the-style - definitely worth trying if you can find this and one that I’d be drinking all the time during summer, if I could find it - I’d have this more than Oberon, for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-September-2013.
