Thanks to SlimChill for the trade. Pours a cloudy, and spiced, golden color. Smell is strong, with bananas, clove and cream. Flavor is thick and bready with more banana and clove. Overall, a very good Hefeweizen. Very drinkable and not lacking any flavor. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Growler... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Beefy, fruity aroma with banana and bubble gum esters blended with clove and light smoke phenols. Medium to full-bodied and very creamy with tingly carbonation. Nice, fruity flavor offers banana, clove and gentle smoke. Fairly sweet, but not annoyingly so. Fruity, spicy finish. It’s a style of beer I really don’t like, but this one is pretty darn good. <b>Big-time thanks to GodOfThunder for sharing!</b> DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2009

Growler. Sweet wheat aroma. Crushed grains. Bread dough. A bit of clovey spice, but fairly dry and cereal like yeast presence. Pours a thick, hazed, dark gold with a massive bright white head. Lots of wheat on the palate. A hint of banana bread. Mild tartness. Very refreshing. Definitely bready and dry. Full bodied for a hefe. Creamy, lush texture leads to a perfumy and aromatic finish. Thanks fellas! GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Draft at Ginger Man Austin. Poured a hazy yellow orange color with a white head. Smelled of clove, banana, and cereal grain. there was also a whiff of orange. Light to medium bodied. Hay, cereal grain, clove, and orange flavors predominated with only a bit of banana. Solid hefe.

Draft @ the Gingerman. Pours a hazy gold, fluffy white head, nice lacing down the glass. Aroma of tart wheat, citrus, bready yeast, light cloves and lemon soaked lady fingers. Creamy tart wheat, lightly sweet with hints of lemon, bready yeasts, again very restrained clove. Lush and drying in the mouth, light and slight tartness. Really solid hefe.

Growler Cheers to my weekend highlight. Very tasty hefe, a style itself which is most pleasing. I haven’t a vertical tasting with the Town Hall version, fond memories of blowing me away, rather this stands on its own. Tasty,though a tad dry. Very creamy mouthfeel. The head looked great.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Tap. Poured a hazy straw-yellow color with a moderate fluffy white head that stuck around for a while. Aroma is mostly clove and banana with some light citrus, a light spiciness, and some dough. Flavor consists of a moderate wheatiness with some doughy malts, a strong clove spiciness, some banana and light citrus that finishes with a moderate yeastiness. Rather creamy on the palate. Definitely a good hefeweizen. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2008
