ben4321 (6133) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 9/20/11

Aroma: The nose is a mix of orange, yeast, banana, clove, and bubblegum notes
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy yellow color with a fizzy white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, same components as the nose, yeasty, and some spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively carbonation to it, and an average-to-lengthy finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a decent hefe. It has most of the classic components to it, and it works alright. Its a little overly carbonated, and it doesnt have anything standout about it, but it still isnt a bad one.

Bottle at cgarvieuks. Bright musty yellow, thin white head fades to nothing. Hazy but not opaque. Slight clove, lemon, bubblegum banana nose. On the palate, juicy tropical fruits and some bready malt. Clean fruit finish. Nice, slightly unusual Hefeweizen.

AshtonMcCobb (6378) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2011
Pours a hazy golden-orange with gentle bubbles and a decent head - it falls back to leave a thin layer of lace. The nose has pineapple sorbet. The taste has a tangy yeast but there is a low malt note in the background which detracts somewhat from the big sweet fruity notes. The palate has a medium structure, a tangy but thin texture through the middle and it cleans pretty well, even if thats just because the middle was pretty light anyway. Overall, its a weak example of a weizen.

JohnRMurdoch (4736) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Sour vegetable clove aroma. Cloudy yellowish brown colour, not much head. Spicy banana clove flavour. Flat & watery texture, aromatic aftertaste. Unusual but not great Hefeweizen.

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Tasted at the Breast Fest in Fort Mason, SF. This pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white head. I was expecting more of an American wheat ale, since I hadnt heard anything about this beer, but I was pleasantly surprised at how authentically German this is. The aroma is very wheaty with fresh baked bread and some banana esters while the flavor explodes with clove, bubblegum, banana, and wheat. Its nice to know we can get a authentic, fresh German hefeweizen here on the West Coast! I would have scored it higher if the aroma had been more potent.

This is a really nice hefe. Good aroma. Very fruity but not banana. Light and airy. One of the best beers I had at the festival.

Poured into a pint glass. Golden straw color with a cloudy appearance and a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, and some spices (coriander?). Flavor follows aroma almost exactly. Overall a decent wheat beer.
