In short: A very problematic wheat beer. Bad.BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2012
How: Tap at brewpub, this batch at 6.55% (currently listed on ratebeer at 5.8%).
The look: Cloudy straw color body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is a bit sharp and weird, smells like old orange juice and urinal cake. Houston we have a problem. Taste is dominated by crushed aspirins, old acidified apple juice that has been sitting in the open for two weeks, young green bananas, some wheat. An overall chemical sensation. Pretty much undrinkable, I can’t believe I was served a pint of a crap like this at a brewpub, don’t they taste their own beer? Not only was the beer bad but when I smiled and winked at my waitress she told me I was an ugly piece of shit, I’m telling you, I’ve never been so insulted in my entire afternoon.
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Milly’s in Manchester, NH. Outstanding hefeweizen - banana and clove jump out of this one, making it very interesting and enjoyable. Far from a bland wheat hefe - this one has plenty of character. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Hazy straw pour with a medium sized fizzy white head. Huge spicy banana and clove esters give way to unmalted wheat ans bubblegum notes. Very typical of the style, but nothing special going for it. Light body with fizzy carbonation. AirForceHops (7693) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Draft @ the brew pub. Served in a pint. I talked with the owner / brewmaster. He uses German yeast and you can tell! The nose is lots of clove and banana, with a hearty yeast body. Flavor was well balanced between the malt and the yeast, no hops at all here. Lightly sweet and refreshing with light citrus to go along with the banana and clove. The body is fuller and really makes it close to what you get in Germany. Excellent example of the style. And I will go back before the end of summer to get another few pints. High drinkability.

Quite a bit better than the raspberry version- but not that great overall. Pours a light golden hazy with a thin head. Aroma is slight diacetyl and buttery light sweetness, ok bready and some wheat- ok hefe character a bit too phenolic with some clove and more butter. Lightly spicy flavor- phenolic clove, crisp crackery wheat malts and overall a bit weak and watered down with a lower than expected carbonation making the beer feel a bit more slick.

Another great selection from Milly’s. great wheat beer that is clearly unfiltred and served ice cold from their hand pump. try it hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2006
on tap at the brewpub. Hazy light golden. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat. Taste is banana, some spices and yeast, light tart finish. Good hefe. tonyc603 (43) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2006
I always ask for this type of beer without a lemon, this time I forgot, so I ordered a second pint and drank the lemon one after I was finished with the non-lemon...everyone follow that? Cloudy golden color(lots of nice yeast still in there of course),with a nice firm white head. Aroma is wonderful, nce banana, and a bit of clove, though not the bubblegum some people say. Flavor was well balanced between the malt and the yeast, not much for hops here.Slightly sweet and refreshing with a hint of citrus to go along with the banana and clove. The body is fuller than some hefes but it doesn’t make it less drinkable. Balthazar (86) - Clinton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Served to me on tap at Volgons... This was the last pure glass from the keg... haha Volgon’s last beer... another victory for me!
A clean honey color. Immediate light hints of banana. The banana accentuated the aroma in the second taste. A nice mix of yeast and malt with light hops... like I like it. Would be great on a hot summer day.
Glad to get a taste before it was gone :) jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2006
