gripweed57 (2914) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Hazy, yellow gold color. Thick, dense, rocky white head. Sweet wheat malt aroma. Notes of clove and banana. Flavor follows nose. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Fruit malt notes. Tart yeasty finish.

Bill Becker (1910) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 24, 2017
From Apr 2007

It pours from 12oz bottle(best by Aug 2007) a cloudy straw colour with a very small head of foam that dissipates completely after a very short time with no lacing.

The smell has a wheat nose with some citrus and spice.

The taste on first sip has a nice burst of banana and clove followed by wheat and yeast. Another sip and there's some tartness, no actually, a lot of tartness...very lemony. That's something that would work quite well in the hot summer days of Casper, no doubt.

The mouthfeel is good for the style, the carbonation is light. and the finish ends up with the banana that I noted on the first sip. Solid. Good. Tasty.

Bottom line: This would be a good thirst quecher for the summer season and I thank jwc215 for including this one in our trade!

Bottle. Sour milk, orange/banana, clove, wheat malt, and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate white head. Moderately sweet banana, orange, wheat malt, and moderately bitter clove/light hay flavor. Very good - another winner from High Point.

weihenweizen (4162) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle best by June 2017 from mikeq215 poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy with small white head. Aroma is yeasty, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is yeasty and some clove.

Scotty001 (573) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Poured hazy and yellowish with a nice tight head. Standard weissbier aroma of clove and citrus fruit. Filling mouthfeel and flavour of citrus and a dry aftertaste.

Dacrza (1047) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Date: July 19, 2015... Glassware: Weihenstephan wheat... Occasion: recovering from the nine family party with a Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf viewing... Appearance: Begins with a two-finger white head that thins swiftly; an opaque, hazy yellow body that erupts in effervescence; zero tracings in the glass.... Aroma: lemon, clove and a bit of pepper make for an inviting profile; light malts suggest a balanced blond... Palate: smooth, medium-bodied, and with a bit of fizziness...drinkable and sessionable, but not nuanced or textured... Taste: clove, pepper, and malts are a flavorful treat, with a medium-bodied impact and indeed a balanced wheat; the apple/banana arrives at the end of the sip.... Overall: a refreshing, substantial hefeweizen that kept me quenched during a HOT summer afternoon....

(bottle) A well crafted American Heffe-Weizen brewed locally in NJ. The freshness stands out. Nice cloudy unfiltered golden complexion with ample head. The flavor is classic with banana, green apple and faint clove. Well done.

revolution2718 (383) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2014
Very hazy, minimal head. Nose is banana, lemon, clove, malty wheat, standard hefe fare. Taste matches nose, very effervescent and bubbly. Not bad, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got this as an extra in a recent trade, can’t remember who sent it but thanks. 12 oz bottle served in a Hefe glass. Best before October 2013.

A: Pours a clear yellow color with some light shading towards the top. A white head forms on the pour, about two fingers high, and settles down to a thin, wispy film. Some light splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Typical hefe smells. Light clove, some mild fruitiness with a solid wheat backbone. Banana esters are present as well. Light pie crust as well

T: The banana esters take over with a brown banana sweetness and rankness to it. The wheat is there with some mild sweetness. Slightly vegetal in natures as well. Doesn’t really mesh well together and isn’t that particularly inviting. After a few sips it becomes more bland and even less flavorful

M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Very banana ester forward on the finish with a high level of sweetness.

O: This just doesn’t work. The yeast profile they used wasn’t very inviting and while it had the typical hefe flavors it was extremely unbalanced. More hops and wheat would have been nice. A little fuller body to.
