On tap at Clybourn.
A-Very hazy, white filmy head. Burnt yellow color.
S-Clove, banana bread, malty.
T-Like most other hefes but with some alcohol bite. Also some phenols. Overall quality is grainy with nice notes of banana like esters and cloves.
M-Nice smooth body.
O-The alcohols take away from the drinkability of this hefe. A bit bitter in the finish for my taste.

On tap at Wrigleyville. This is an easy drinking. Orange and wheat aroma. Middling mouthfeel, which is a little light for this style. Carbonation is right there. Somewhat sweet, a tad of banana.A little yeasty. Altogether a summer beer. In a word, competent.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the Wrigleyville brewpub.

And here the 2011 Bachelor Party extravaganza beginneth! It pours a cloudy sunset amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises cracked wheat, clove, light banana peel, dry grass, and light orange rind. The taste picks things up significantly, with notes of mandarin orange, banana, clove, and light buttered biscuit. The body is a hefty light, with a very light moderate carbonation and a silky smooth feel. I have never had a hefe go down so smoothly. Overall, a very nice hefe, though the smell leaves something to be desired. I'd definitely rather see this stuff bottled over 312 and the like...
