Murky, deep golden brew. “Blink and you miss it” head.
The nose is of caramel, banana and clove.
Yeasty, beefy and lightly fruity in flavor. Some honey in there too.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, lightly sweet finish with hints of oak.
An odd hefe, this one. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
One of those that you start out drinking for the rating and hopes it gets better but it never does. Very musky and unbalanced, oily and a little too sweet. I would not try this one again. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Aroma of dirty hops and malty sewage. Flavor is lightly piney and citrusy. Palate is musky and not refined. I'm not that fond of american wheats, but this one makes them look like a monkey in a pinjata. scottyg (79) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2003
A nice smooth wheat beer. Nice color. Yeasty, and a little sweet. The fact that it is unfiltered leave a cloud in your beer. dingo (37) - USA - AUG 30, 2003
I really wasn't impressed with this beer at at the brewery off the tap, nor from the bottle. It poured nice enough, but for my taste it isn't a high ranker. I miss the lemon taste that it is supposed to have.

A nice hefeweizen. A bit more of an amber color instead of a golden, lots of foamy head, and the standard taste of wheat and lemon. Just a touch of peach on the 'backblow'. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2003
This one has a murky, deep golden hue and the aroma of banana-nut bread, with a rich, pleasing wheat taste. Yes, the head on this one was a bit lame, but the rich flavor more than makes up for that! PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 Rerate Faint bubble gum, some cloves, not quite as profound as before Original 3.3 Had on tap at an Outback in Burlington, Wa. Good, solid domestic hefe. cloudy, light orange appearance. Has the patented banana, bubblegum aroma one comes to expect - flavor - similar. Has a pleasant thick mouthfeel - went down very smooth.

This beer poured a medium white fizzy looking head. It was cloudy, which is good for the style. At least it wasn't filtered. I wasn't impressed by this hefe. It wasn't foul - it just didn't taste like, um, beer. TogBean (47) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Had this one on the Outer Banks. Favorite vacation so far, not my favorite beer. It poured like unfiltered apple juice with a thin head and little to no lacing on the glass. I've mentioned before my problem with bananas so it shouldn't surprise you to know that when i smelled that, it soured me on this beer. However it was mild enough that I was able to discern some other aromas, mango, nutty hops and yeast. It was a thin beer, more fizzy than carbonated and it had a stange pine-y undertone to it. And again, the banana thing. If it wasn't for that, it'd be an easy drinkin light summer beer.
