Draft. Cloudy golden orange color, large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of spiced lemon and banana. Taste is banana, clove, bubblegum. Classic. Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
Keg at Euston Tap. Pours cloudy golden brown with a thick, white head. Big wheat, yeast and clove nose. Fairly sweet, with nice wheat notes, slight metal and citrus, more yeast. Light to medium in body with heavy, creamy carbonation. Finishes with light wheat, some bubblegum, light dryness. Very decent. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazed amber color with a finger or so of white head.
S: It’s definitely got some hops to it. Starts off with citrus and hints of tropical fruits. Past there, there is the usual aroma of sweet malt and wheat bread with a somewhat mild banana and clove note.
T: The flavor isn’t quite as good, however. Light banana notes and a strange tea flavor. A good dose of citrus peel, as well as some floral hops and a light grassiness. Plenty of sweet bread and wheat.
M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.
O: While the aroma was nice, the flavor was lacking and overall just wasn’t the most enjoyable beer to drink. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Good folks. Pours dirty, hazy gold with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Mild banana aroma. Medium body; foamy carbonation. Flavor is roast caramel with some banana and clove. There’s enough hop to make it bitter, but it seems like tangerine peel, at least that comes to mind. It is a little acid/citric I think. Very different take. Ratman197 (14830) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2010
500- ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of wheat, spicy hops and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, fruittiness, light carmel and a hint of spice with a crisp fruity finish.

Bottle. Poured an hazy orange amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy floral hop and sweet malt, soft clove aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2010
50cl bottle. Large off-white head atop a cloudy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, banana, bubblegum, some spiciness. Taste is moderately sweet, bubblegum, some spicy, grape, light banana, cream. Effervescent medium body, some acidity. crossovert (12912) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
500ml brown bottle with no date. Says it is a extra hoppy amber hefeweizen utilizing the Saphir hop.
Pours with a huge, uncontrollable white head that is slightly foamy. The body is an amber/gold that looks decently filtered. They head takes a long while to dissipate leaving some pretty nice lacing. On the second pour I swirled for yeast, even after a minute of swirling not all of it had come off the bottom- there is a lot of yeas hiding in this bottle.
The smell is as one might guess, yeasty, with heavy spicy clove and a hint of banana, but there is also a nice grassy, herbal, and spicy hop presence that is welcome.
The flavor is super-citrusy, almost like a witbier. Tons of lemon, almost tart. The clove makes a smaller appearance in the taste along with the wheat and a heightened bitterness form a normal Hefeweizen, though not at all super hoppy.
The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and prickly, this makes it refreshing on a hot summer day.
This is a great Hefeweizen right here, surprisingly it isn’t talked about much.

Bottle. Banana, orange, and caramel wheat malt aroma. Dark amber with moderate head. Sweet banana, orange, and toffee wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Pretty good. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark orange-yellow and hazy appearance with a light tan head. Some sediment dispersed in the body. Slightly darker wheat malts with a different hoppiness than most German Hefeweizen while still having the characteristic banana smell. Creamy mouthfeel. Lemon citrusy beer that’s a bit sour with wheat malts. Kind of a dull wheat aftertaste.
