3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Illegible, smudged dating on the neck of the bottle, unfortunately.
Appearance: Pours a lightly clouded, pale gold body with a small-sized, short-lived, white head.
Smell: Very gently toasted golden wheat nose with smooth banana notes and spicy clove accents. A little lemon showing moments later.
Taste: Malty wheat with some crunchy toastiness to it, perhaps a low touch of grain. Lightly honeyish quality and not overtly sweet. Faint, faded lemon fruitiness, then, the near-ripe bananas followed by spicy notes from the clove phenols and German hops. Drying finish pointed by the crispish carbonation.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Passably refreshing and sufficiently representative for an American-born hefe.

my only real complaint is this was a little too filtered to be a german hefe. it looked more like an american wheat or wit. but otherwise, probably in my top 2 or 3 of american made hefes. i hope they make this a regular part of their lineup.

On tap at Rattle N Hum, July 2012. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of spices, bubble gum, pepper and glove. Drinkable but not that interesting.

Bottle. Hazy pale golden pour with a medium-sized, fluffy white head. Aroma was lots of clove, bubblegum, creamy banana. Flavor was that plus some light malt. Fairly sweet. Creamy, slightly thick mouthfeel. Solid hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
7/16/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden pour with a nice off-white head that cuts in half but lasts and laces in foamy rings. Creamy banana aroma with light spice and a definite creamed corn aspect. Very nice flavor though with cream, banana, marshmallow, light spice, esters, and more. Surprisingly good based on some of their other offerings.

Bottle: Pours a hazy golden color with a thin off-white head. Yeasty aroma has hints of bananas, lemon peel, wheat, and cloves. Flavor is banana and wheat with a spicy tingly mouthfeel that finish with a mild dryness. A refreshing and well-done Hefe.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma of wheat with banana. Taste follows, really watered down. Banana and wheat are there but faded. Not great

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow with a heavy wispy head. Mild aroma with a hint of citrus. It has a modest sweet taste with a very long and smooth finish. It is definitely a summer quaff for long afternoons.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy straw yellow with a vanishing white crown. Aroma is bready with grains, lemon, nuts and mild banana. Taste of banana, clove, wheat and light caramel wrapped up in an overly fizzy body. Finishes dry and yeasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Musty hefe aroma, a bit of wet dog and wet cardboard in there. Bad label, standard US longneck bottle, somewhat foggy gold beer, thin filmy white head. A pleasant bitterness, pretty dry, biscuity. Some light floral notes on the backend. Sturdy mouthfeel - the palate of this beer was its best feature. New Leaf Market - try it with the textured soy vienna sausages.
