COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sommer Fling (formerly Uber) hefe is our traditional German-style hefeweizen that pours cloudy with a straw color and a white, fluffy head. It imparts an aroma with faint bready and spicy notes from the use of wheat and German noble hops; however, the aroma is dominated by cloves with bubblegum. It tastes slightly of bananas balanced with clove phenolics. Overall, this is an effervescent and refreshing beer perfect for enjoying outside as we welcome warm weather.

Huhzubendah (3697) - Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2017
Draft at The Hilton in Norfolk, VA. Hazy yellow body with an inch of white head. Aromas of raw, cracked grains. Mashed banana, clove. Grainy with mild sweetness. Just a bit off. Lacks the amazing drinkability I associate with a great hefeweizen.

Can: Banana, lemon, and clove nose, evident but not strong. Clear amber, thin head. Lemon and wheat flavor, mild peppery coriander finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. A good attempt at the style from an American brewer.

wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2016
375ml can into Hefe glass, served cold Aroma: White bread, spice, dried fruit. Straightforward, uncomplicated and light. Appearence: Lightly hazed pale gold. Quickly dissipating white head, little to no lacing. Taste: Not too yeasty. A little white pepper, more spice-driven than fruit. Still, light enough to be refreshing. Palate: Light, clean, high effervescence. Very prickly! Overall: I wanted a nice summer hefe to enjoy on a hot day, and while I personally prefer the nice, classic, banana flavor, there is nothing wrong with this guy. I like it!

A spicy aroma of coriander with bready notes. A slightly hazy golden color with a white head and nice lacing. A spicy coriander taste with notes of honey and a bread. A lighter body with a spice finish. A very refreshing beer great for the summer.

Ctplt777 (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2016
I love a good juicy hefe and this is exactly that. Theres a ton of bready, clove, banana and spiciness in the aroma. The clove and banana are the most upfront though. Taste is spicy with tons of banana and clove and theres a big citrus taste. Its a pretty juicy hefe which is awesome. This beer would be too easy to crush on the beach all day. Cheers!

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Draft at RVC. Pours a fairly hazy gold, decent head. Wheat and spice aroma. Like Tia, I caught coriander. In all honesty, I would have pegged this as a saison. There were definite phenol and ester notes present, and they were pleasant. But they came across to me as more Belgian as opposed to the clove/banana German here combo. Maybe my palate is finally fatally shot. In any case, since this is entirely hedonistic, I still liked it quite a bit. :)

Tap @ RVC. Yellow with thin head. Smells sweet and wheaty, spiced, coriander. Wheat flavor. A bit watery.
