Tap @ SPH. Pours that unmistakable cloudy golden-orange with a surprisingly small white head. Aroma is banana, clove, and slight vanilla characteristics as well. Flavor is spicy up front with noticeable cloves and a nice sweet finish with heavy notes of banana. Beer again remains smooth throughout, and while it did not exactly match the classic hefeweizen, it was more than worth the price of admission.

On tap at SPH. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of spices and clove. Flavor is spices upfront with a nice fruity (banana) finish. Full-bodied palate. However, after a pint of this, the spices started to annoy me. Ok hefe though.

On tap at the Publick House. Cloudy, cloudy, cloudy. Aroma of banana, reddish fruits, wheat, spices in the background. Flavor more of the same, maybe gets a bit tiring by the end. Full, creamy body. While a bit different from an authentic German Hefeweizen, a much more interesting attempt than Ive come to expect from an American brewer. Sort of like wheat candy.

Tap at Hop Devil. Lovely pour, super hazy with a nice, bright white head. As cloudy as this was, though, it had little body, making both the aroma and the taste very watery. Some of the right pieces were there, but this really was lacking a distinctive yeast character that hefes should have. Really quite unexciting.

From my long lost notes. On tap at the SPH August, 2003. Servied in a pint glass. Arrived at the table a hazy gold with a thin white head. Very pleasant aroma of bananas along with some spice. Flavor was definitely wheaty with bananas and yeast as well. A bit of spice in there as well. Fairly smooth and medium bodied. Very good summer brew.

Poured a lightly hazy, golden color, with a medium sized, creamy white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of gingerbread, some banana, and faint cloves. Taste of more banana, tart citrus fruits, clove, and a light yeastiness.

Tap at SPH. Hazy golden coloured beer. Sweet aroma of banana, some nice wheaty character in the nose. Not a lot of clove or spice. Seems a bit undercarbonated and sort of lifeless. Flavour is pretty good, medium bodied, banana and apple flavour. Lingering wheaty spice on the back. Malts seem a bit light, but its quite refreshing.

On tap @ the Publick house, enjoyed while talking with JoeMcPhee. Poured cloudy yellow into a shaker. Aroma is faintly wheaty and taste was too watery. This was one of those unimpressive beers served at the Publick house. They must of changed the yeast because their are no complex flavors.
