Bottle from Jeff (doclock) Thanks! Pours out a bright yellow color with a white head initially which gives way to no head at all, kind of like this old girl friend i had that wasnt worth a shit. Smell is mostly banana, clove, some hops. Taste is smooth and fruity very full of bananas and lemons. Possibly even some orange. A pretty good take on a hefe actually. Decent stuff. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Decent, but frankly didn’t think it was that spectacular. Very grainy, with some banana and lemon. Terminus (3716) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2006
bottle-sampled at the brickskellar in DC. lighty hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. nose is banana esters and light grains. banana, grains and lemon on the flavors. pretty basic but solid rendition of a hefe. palate is solid and not as carbonated as expected. could be a good session beer here in DC for me. would like to try it more fresh someday.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of pils malts, yeast, clove, and banana. Nice scent. Poured golden in color with a large, rocky, white head that lasted. Hazy. No lacing. Flavor is mildly sweet and moderatly bitter. Tastes of cloves, banana, brown sugar, and bubblegum. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Medium length spicy, bitter finish. Overall, a nice Hefe that is a bit spicier than most. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Bottle I brought back from Philly. Fairly clear and carbonated; gold with a hint of orange. Aroma mainly of bubblegum and yeast; couldn’t detct too much spice. Very easy to drink, but not too much taste. Main tastes were wheat, some bananas, not too much spice. Ok merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Cloudy medium yellow body topped by a one finger white head that leaves some patchy lacing. Very aromatic nose features notes of citrus, coriander, and pepper. Lots of enticing orange and lemon zest accented by toasty wheat and some yeasty banana. Light bodied with zesty carbonation in the mouth. Taste mirrors the aroma, as coriander and orangepeel mix with the toasty and grainy wheat malts. The zippy carbonation enlivens, as hints of banana, earthy yeast, and a dash of clove enter the picture. Very nicely done. A tasty thirst quencher.

Decent spicy aroma with a bit of effervescent lemon. Fairly standard wheat product with all that entails. cheap (6088) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Did anyone say pale yellow american beers? Not quite. Seems a little more clear and less cloudy than other whites, no fog, without little things swirling around in there. without the yeast.Slight yeast aroma. Initial bite was slightly bitter as mild hops but the bitterness faded within minutes after the first taste. A little less than average carbonation. And yes, I did imagine banana....! Specifically, not real bananas but the taste of a good quality banana popsicle on a warm sunny day. How interesting. No lasting bitterness on the finish.
