Bottle from Hopduvel. Hazy copper-orange color, with an good beige head.
Aroma great hops (like an IPA) fruity, not an Hefeweizen like.
Taste refreshing, good hopbitter, fruits, citrusnotes, and little fruitsweetness. VERY NICE brew ! mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - SEP 3, 2010
In this yeast series, yeast doesn’t have much of an impact on flavor. All the beers are basically double IPA’s. I was hoping with this one that it would have that cloudy hefe aspect. It is a super excellent double though. Bitter, perfume, citrus, smooth, quality as always. Now I am adding a real hefe to it to get get what I was hoping for. Addition complete.............. Oh man! Now this is what I was hoping for! A hoppy hefe! You really should try this yourself. Mixing beers. Incredible. BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2010
Perfect amber colour, big hop driven aroma which is quite complex with pineapple and rich malt. There is an unusual ester profile which I can only attribute to the combination of big American hops and hefe yeast. It’s a very interesting beer, I would be interested in trying the rest in the series. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Another Mikkeller beer and a very excited beer lover waiting anxiously to try it. This one was made possible from the great people up at the Charleston Beer Exchange. I have to get up there one day to see their fin establishment. I was sort of confused when I opened the bottle, poured it into my Dogfish snifter glass, and got a big whiff of hops. Seeing the word hefenweizen on the bottle I expected a more citrus/fruity aroma to, but being a IPA lover I wasn’t disappointed in the least. The color was a very dark gold with brown tints. The aroma, as I mentioned before, was very hoppy with citrus/grapefruit notes as well. The carbonation was excellent, as was the head retention. With a ABV at 8% it’s not too big and not too small, just at the perfect place where you could have a few and still be satisfied. thewolf (12535) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2010
Tap @ CBF, 2010.

Pours clear amber with a lovely, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lovely banana, fruit, apple, maltiness, light grapefruity hops. The yeast kinda hides the hops away a little. Medium carbonation, fine light and softly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely, good banana, fruity, grapefruit, apples. Bitter, delicious finish. Light malty, wheaty sweetness. Very lovely.
Huge, pale mango-yellow head, fluffy, over copper-coloured beer. Very nice IPA-like citrussy hopsnose; very un-Hefeweizen like really, marked passion fruitaroma. Hopbitter, very fresh, citrussy and resiny retronasal. As to banana, cloves, zilch. Candy-like sweetness underneath, but also fruity sweetness. Quite slick - one would hazard wheatslickness as only wheatslickness as only wheatlink. Very nice IPA. Utterly un-Weizen. Leighton (21089) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2011
Tap at CPK. Pours a cloudy, amber-gold with a medium, off-white head. Lots of fruity esters in the nose with definite hops and yeast. Very sweet with some bread and banana, plus citrus and grass hops. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Finishes dry and grassy with lasting yeast and some sugary malts. Very good stuff.

Creamy off-white excellent fully lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Some yeasty notes. moderate bitter flaor. Long great bitter finish with some candis notes. Creamy palate. The yeast series beer that I enjoyed the most. Alphadelic (2235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Spicy clove and fudy fruit on the nose. A perfect showcase of the yeast for me. No hop is really present. Smooth, fat and delicious. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Hazy golden amber with decent rocky off white head. Plenty of lacing as it falls away. Aromas of caramel malt, citrus hops and some fruit ester which I am assuming are coming from the yeast. Flavours of light sweet caramel and some resiny hops. Decent IPA. Dont really get much from this particular yeast though.
