auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Sadly, served with a lemon. Aroma creeps through the citrus to give a classic yeast-phenol bite. Pours heavily clouded in a darker yellow-bronze. No head (thanks slice). Flavor is pretty traditional, but it comes with a lack of carbonation that kills this beer. Soapy. Flavor runs between lemons, banana, and clove oils through a wheat oil. Too heavy for the style. Not something I would want to quench my thirst with. Finishes a nip sticky.

Great. Surprisingly full bodied for the style. Not overly complex, but excellent flavor. Citrus, wheat and yeast in the taste. Not much spices. Highly drinkable and refreshing.

jredmond (8004) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2008
On tap at Brewpub. Served with lemon - pours a hazy orange body - little head. The aroma is lemon-citrus, wheat and yeast. The taste is light - including the same elements as the aroma.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Pours a cloudy straw yellow colored body with a frothy white lacing. The aroma is mild bananas and yeast with cloves and a little citrus. Flavors are spicy banana bread with nuts and brown sugar. Not bad.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Draft, Selins Grove Brewing Co. Pours a cloudy, yellowish-brown color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Decent amount of cloves and brown sugar in the aroma; some citrus. Relaxed carbonation. Plenty of doughiness and brown sugar upfront; decent dose of cloves and fruit, but a bit on the light side; not watery, but light. Medium, clove and creme brulee in the finish.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2007
On draft at the brew pub. Light and slightly hazy pour. A bit of spice with Banana, cloves, and lemon and a touch of yeast. A pretty good Hefeweizen overall.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Draft at the brewery. Barely murky, not really that cloudy or opaque for a hefeweizen. Nose of sweet corn and lemon, simple smelling sugars with just a little touch of dusty yeast. Simple, bland flavor, with sweet candy corn and lemon and only a small hint of wheat. Boring.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Pours a moslty hazy nice gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light banana- more skewed towards clove and vanilla phenols but also has a lemony citrus character. More lemon in the flavor light wheat- grainy, lightly salty, slight banana and clove. Light and tart flavor- a bit weak in the body. Not the best hefe - I was a bit dissapointed.
