Nice representation of a German hefe. Definite hints of banana and citrus in the nose. The taste reflected the nose and didn’t disappoint. This would be a great hot-weather beer.

Strykzone (7362) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Draft at Global Brew Edw. golden with only a tiny ring. Soft fruit, cloves, and banana are smelled. It smells like a classic German hefe. Flavorvis a little like fruity candy. Earth is tasted. Those hefe flavors that I like are here but are not quite big enough. The sugary candy leads. Still, I do like it. A nice summer quencher on a hot day. A bit of butter in the finish.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw hue with lively carbonation. Frothy bright white head dies to a small ring, laces ok. Aromas are a bit fruity, flaked wheat meets some apple, gentle banana and faint clove. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit of fleshy apple and banana. Touches of fruit, flaked wheat, straw. Middle is a bit bready, gentle tartness. Some touches of yeast, flaked wheat. Clean fermentation shows some decent yeast character, nice fruity compliment is cool, banana driven. Finish is a bit sweet, lingering fruit and gentle yeastiness. Nice, refreshing, doesn’t overdo the sweetness.
