On tap at Piece Brewery Chicago.
Holy hell! What a great beer! True this is my favorite style of beer, but this drink was damn near perfect! Appearance was perfect cloudy yellow with thin white head. Smell was yeasty and wheaty, with strong banana notes. Taste was just perfect...I would have gotten another one had I not already had the Stout and Kolsh! Mouthfeel was smooth and crisp. Overall a damn awesome beer! I'd make the trek to Wicker Park just to grab this one again and again.

Review based on a beer-judging sized sampler. Appropriately cloudy, even a little white like a Belgian. Has an extreme banana and lemon nose that overwhelms the other hefeweizen spices. Very "German," maybe even a little overdone. But you don't need a lemon, that's for sure.

5.5% ABV. Cloudy and gold in color. Thick white fluffy head. Good retention. A few patches of lace left on the glass. Looks pretty tasty.
A whiff of tartness in the nose up front. A bit of clove and bubblegum. Pretty nice aroma here.
Tart up front with a bit of banana and bubblegum. Just a bit of earthy hops to balance things out.
Medium body, with a higher amount of carbonation, fitting in well with the style. Very easy to drink. Solid.

A - Cloudy, medium color of gold with a slight orange tint. Pretty good sized, creamy, thick, fluffy, white head. Good retention that settles into a nice creamy layer of lace.
S - Some banana along with a good amount of malted wheat aroma. Good amount of clove and some other spice and a fair amount of vanilla present.
T - Good amount of malted wheat and bready flavors. Fair amount of banana present, although it isn't the most banana forward Hefeweizen. Faint bubblegum taste toward the finish. A touch of lemon and yeast tartness along with a slight tangy taste.
M - Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. A bit of a zesty and tingly feel.
D - Very drinkable beer with a nice refreshing feel and a fair amount of zesty taste. Overall a very refreshing beer.
Notes: A nice refreshing Hefeweizen. Not the most banana/bubblegum forward, but it is a good, refreshing beer and has a good spiciness. Very enjoyable beer, especially on a warm summer day.

Piece Brewery Top Heavy Hefeweizen served on tap
Appearance: Small head with a cloudy golden body.
Smell: Strong wheat
Taste: Wheat, yeast, and slight spice.
It is very refined and smooth. It is also very flavorful and not heavy. It's a very good hefeweizen.

Appears a hazy cloud of gold with a white head that slowly fades into a mild cap. Scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of tart wheat, ripe bananas, vanilla wafers, cloves, ripe fruit, and a touch of sulfer.
Taste is of the aromas with the classic Bavarian hefe yeast filled flavor coming through with a gentle tartness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, and very deliciously refreshing.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate yellowish color that is quite cloudy and has a nice white head. Nose is yeast, wheat, and light citrus. The taste is wheat and citrus with a bit of a yeasty kick. Nice body with good carbonation. A bit heavy but drinks well.

First had: on tap at the brewpub
Review from notes. Hazy straw-yellow pour, topped with a cap of foamy white head; moderate retention and a bit of lacing. Yeasty aroma, wheat, banana esters, light spice and a bit of citrus. More of the same in the taste, bready yeast, banana and clove, light citrus, wheat...pretty much a typical hefe. Medium body, fairly smooth, decently drinkable overall.

Served in a weizen glass at the brewpub.
Continuing my march through Piece's offerings. This one pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises banana, clove, light orange peel, and vanilla. The taste brings in more of the same, complete with a veritable blast of bananas and cream. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth-as-hell feel. Overall, a very strong hefe, possibly the highlight of my visit today.

This beer pours a cloudy pale orange color. The head is two inches in height, and recedes slowly into a lingering cap of foam. The aroma is of cloves, banana, and tangy wheat. The taste is full of banana with cloves in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, this is one of the better American versions of a hefe. I could easily drink this all summer long.
