On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy gold with a light, filmy white head. Very sweet-smelling aroma with notes of yeast and candi. Sweet flavor, some banana and apple, gum, yeast, candi. Medium bodied with massaging, fine carbonation. Slightly biting finish, weak yeast and some sweetness. Alright.

Muddy beige. No head. Big banana nose with light indistinct phenols and abundant wheat. Very sweet - sort of icing sugar sticky. Big banana and very sugary finish.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle thanks to Jblauvs. Pours a cloudy orange gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is full of banana and clove with a good amount of sweet wheat and some other spice. Flavor begins with more wheat but is quickly joined by banana and clove.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Orange and banana juices flow onto the sweet cereals as doughy yeast is dropped onto the muddled result. All the right flavors are there, but for some reason I dont find this Hefeweizen to be cohesive at all.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is barely a ring of foam to top the cloudy beige.
-The chosen yeast is very expressive; lots of banana esters and spicy, clovey phenols. Weihenstephaners perhaps?
-The relatively low carbonation does not help the mouthfeel at all.
-My glass was overly fruity and sweet to be all that drinkable. A rare dislike for me at this brewpub.

On tap at the brewpub.

BuckeyeBoy (7153) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 15, 2010
On tap at Portsmouth brewpub. Pours out a hazy gold topped with a cream head. Aroma was tons of bananas, spice, and belg yeast. Taste was more of the strong banana, along with a nice sweet balance. I always love a good German Hef.

AirForceHops (6954) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2010
On tap at the brew pub. Lightly hazy. Aroma is big time banana clove. A very good American Hefe, would order again. And I am truly becoming a beer snob. Good showing from Tod the brewer.
