bottle. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a large off white head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, wheat and spice. Taste is alot of banana and bubblegum, with some wheat and spices more reserved. Seemed a bit on the sweet side, but Ill have to try it again sometime.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 30, 2007
Bottled (5% ABV). A less than usual hazy dark golden beer with a huge and persistent white head. The aroma is malty and yeasty with notes of bubble gum, cloves and wheat. The flavour is quite sweet, and has notes of wheat and yeast with light spiciness and fruitiness. Light to medium body, high carbonation, some acidity and light bitterness in the finish, though I find there are more hops than usual for the style. Less filling (at least for me) than many other hefeweizen and so more drinkable. I am not a big fan of the style bit I really appreciate this one.

20071022 1pt 9oz bottle. if Ringo was around, hed dig this beer. most of what I hope for in a German hefeweizen is in this glass. Appearance, head, yadda, yadda - it looks like a hefe (should) look. Aroma is surprisingly pleasing with standard banana and clove spice, some presence of citrus, and more importantly, some very distinctive notes of leather, antique store, aging tapestry, and bold grass/straw. In fact, more than anything it reminds me of sweetgrass (or maybe Caribbean woven hats/bags). Also present on the nose are some melon rind hints and an unfortunate spritz of dms. Body is medium-light, beautifully spritzy, and a touch sticky. Flavor is less interesting than aroma but still quite nice with the standard hefe fare of banana, clove, and mild tartness, but thats just the front of the sip. From middle to finish there is an assertive tartness that kicks in, medium leafy earthiness, and an spple skin astringency. The yeast is present throughout but never overdone in its sourness or fruit influence. The finish is dry, yeasty, and with some notes of black pepper. This stuff is excellent and almost all I hope for in a hefeweizen. Kudos to Plank for yet another outstanding example in their lineup.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Pours a perfect mid-amber body with mild effervescence, opaque-hazed, under an unstoppable, creamy off-white head which falls in rocky peaks. Nose of banana, clove, honeydew, shoe leather and a splash of sulfur. Rather flat bodied with only a tickle of carbonation to offset a heavy presence. Lemony/sour milk tartness under a base of wheaty flavors. More banana and spices afterwards while organic bitters linger in a chalky finish. I bid adieu to Hefes like this as autumn now sets in...

P.S. Sorry Carl, I didnt realize you hadnt tried this before I cracked it open.

BeerandBlues2 (12835) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy and lightly cloudy brown with a large, frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw, nutty), average hops (herbs, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, earth, leaves) with notes of banana. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.
