Pours to a hazy yellow-orange color, with a creamy white head. The aromas are of wheat, cloves, and fruits--- bananas. The flavor is fruity, clove-like and of wheat malts. It finishes dry. This is a light bodied refresher, a great summertime brew. Tasty hefe.

On-Tap at the brewpub: Super clouded thick, nearly opaque, bright peachy yellow color. Small whitish cap sits loose and frothy. Lacing in strings and spots. The color is remarkably unique to look at up to the light. It generates an awesome glow even though it comes across as being thick as paint. A marvelously picturesque color!

Aroma has a pretty strong clove overlay which sits upon a steady wheat malt base with fresh lemon zip and slight banana.

Flavors are fine, but I keep getting the clove as a cleaning agent. It gets in the way for me, I can't quite get a good hold of the banana and lemon, which is there, but the spice takes away from it for me. I let this sit for awhile to see if maybe the warmth would help subdue the clove spice, but nope. It pretty much stays level throughout.

Feel is good, about right for a hefe, textured and fluffy carbonation, fizzy bits of sprite lemon zip and a whole bunch of clove spice everywhere within its medium body.

Perhaps too much of the clove for me, I like more of the underlying hints then a smack up side the head with the clove stuff in hefes. More banana too. Still, this probably might be more likable then I'm leading to believe. Definately better in quality then most of the brewpub hefe's I've had locally.

Hazy golden. Decent sized white head. Big vanilla on the nose. LIke it. Some subtle clove as well. Yeast. Flour. Spicy. And a little banana. Great nose. Love the taste. Some nice vanilla. Big banana esters. A little bubblegum. A little must. Clove is light. Pepper even lighter. And some lemon tang thrown into the mix as well. Pretty damn good german style hefe. As a matter of fact, my personal favorite.

Appearance: a very solid yellow, with a fine, sturdy white head. The tone is already being set here, for it perfectly hits all the right notes for a hefe weizen.
Aroma: big fat lemon, and I wish the server might have asked whether I needed the addition of a slice of said fruit. Probably out of sheer habit, the way one would be foolish to NOT serve a Corona with lime. The masses like, I don't. She merely tossed it out, after I did. The lemon looms so large, that the slice is overkill. Spicy, sparkling, zesty, uplifting, fresh, perfect.
Great weizen texture, too, lively play, decent hop showing, just-right malt spine. Creamy, tasty, refreshing, full-bodied.
Sweet fruity flavors persist all the way down the pint, which was fully enjoyed. A bright shining example of a hefe weizen. I'll try to take in more of these while summer lasts, and make the most of it!
Good job again, Town Hall!
