beer_rookie (667) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 20, 2017
Pours an orange golden color. Two fingers bone colored head. Okay retention, okay lacing. Lots of sediment.

Aroma is interesting. Light cloves, light yeast, light coriander, very light banana. It has a little more orange than your average hefe. Touch of nutmeg.

Taste is same as aroma. Light cloves, light yeast, light coriander, very light banana. Moderate orange.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Creamy, smooth. Highly drinkable. A little lighter bodied than I like.

Overall, it's alright. Too light bodied. It won't knock your socks off. I probably would not buy it again, and I would probably not buy it again.

Idiosynkrasie (7980) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2017
355ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, macropore, rapidly diminishing, white head. Weak, wheaty and fruity aroma, hints of apple, pear, banana, a touch of clove. Taste is dry, wheaty and slightly yeasty spicy, hints of banana, dried banana, a touch of sage and clove; light, minimally watery. Adequate composition, but for real "Bavarian style" a tad too light.

blipp (9713) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Draft. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Fruity yeasty base, mild spicy notes, and just a touch of sweetness. Pretty good.

tightslice (1440) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Flowery, maybe Orange Blossoms and wheat-y. Definitely not my favorite style but this was floral and fruity.

On tap at Sacramento Brewing. This cloudy yellow beer poured with a thin white head and a flowery wheat aroma. The wheat base is tasty and there is a fair amount of hop bitterness with some banana ester.

Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Strong banana clove vanilla and bready aroma Pours a hazy golden color with white frothy head that starts to disappear Clove and banana flavor with bready malts. A bit heavy on clove for me Medium light bodied with medium high co2, lingering clove spice finish Not one of my favorite Bavarian style hefes. Yeasty clove phenol is a bit too overpowering for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.6
arbine (8) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015 does not count
Fresh with an intensive lemon taste. Doesn’t look like a real Hefeweizen though: not enough fermentation, i.e. froth. And also not tasting yeasty enough, imho.
