True, traditional Hefeweizen. This unfiltered wheat ale presents pleasing clove, vanilla, and banana notes from traditional Bavarian yeast strain.

Infected bottle courtesy bu11zeye. And by infected I mean, infected. Slightly hazy golden yellow color with a tall foamy white head. Big head response on this one. Aroma is light wheat tones, some orange with a tartness. Wow quite sour. This has lots of acidic sourness with some tart fruit and citrus finish. Unexpectedly sour.

A nice Heffe style, cloudy with good head. Nice spice and banana notes, a good beer, but nothing too exciting.

Bottle:   Orangish straw, large fluffy white head, strong carbonation, clingy lacing.   A little more amber in color than expected.   Wheaty nose, slight barnish funk, a little wet dog, some spiciness.   Minor clove and banana on the tongue.   A little heavy and mealy versus the wheatiness I enjoy.   Still better than most.   Flavor falls flat somewhat quickly.   Feels pretty thick, wheaty but mainly mealiness.   Smells decent, looks decent, but kinda falls flat there at the end.

A good smelling beer; right balance. This is good! Flavor is wonderfully balanced and right on for a good German hefe. Excellent for a style I’m not big on.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2009
True to style German hefe, and pretty well done at that. Solid grainy wheat malt backbone with heavily pronounced wheat spices, soft clove, light banana, and tart citrus. Yeast notes through out. Crisp and enjoyable.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pouts cloudy golden in color with thin white head. Aroma oranges and wheat. Taste lemons, oranges and wheat with bitter finish.

Draft at the brewery 6/21/09. Hazy yellow, little head. Citrus aroma with hints of yeast and toffee. Not much flavorwise, but a decent finish.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. Poured into my .4 L Kulmbacher glass. Pour is hazed yellow golden with visible carbonation and a frothy 3 inch white head. Head is very lasting. Some patchy lacing lines the glass as the head eventually falls. Aroma of clove, citric wheatiness and a nice banana orange fruitiness in behind that. Taste is the wheat initially, with a nice mineral somewhat sour bite, following behind that is the clove and some dry white pepper in the finish. Clean, and refreshing. Palate is medium, unfiltered and very drinkable. Nice one, thanks Brandon.
