Bomber served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Dry Dock's Heffe is a very pale golden color, the hue of wheat actually. The head is tight and slow to settle with some lacing.

Aroma is really wonderful, just about perfect for a German wheat. There is banana and clove as well as lemon and bubblegum.

The flavor is excellent too. It's light and crisp but far from bland. Lots of depth to the flavors and similar nuances as enjoyed in the aroma. The balance is just right between sweet, spice, tart and bitter.

Mouthfeel is light in body and nicely carbonated. Such a nice easy-drinking beer to have after weeks of heavier barleywines and stouts.

Overall an excellent German wheat ale. Probably one of the best American versions I've tried. (743 characters)

Bottle from the brewery. Pours large thick head on yellow body. Bannana in nose, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel, carbonation right there. Finishes bitter bannana, drinkable. Alcohol and acidic burn after a half pint though.Decent beer but so-so hefe. Gumbally. (257 characters)

Now known as Dry Dock Hefeweizen.

Pours a super cloudy yellow gold body with awhite head.

Huge banana with a light smoky note.

Banana, lemon peel, coriander, the spicy phenols are low to medium while the fruity esters are quite high. Light vanilla too.

Creamy medium full body with crisp carbonation.

As drinkable as it gets. I took down a growler on my own the first time I tried it. Hefeweizens rarely wow you, but this one will. (436 characters)

Mouthfeel-Medium body, smooth, balanced, dry finish

Found this at the Rackhouse.
Holy crap, this thing is good. I do like Dry Dock, but rarely get over there to get their brews.
Pours a hazy, bright golden/yellow pour with a foamed up head that just looks yummy.
Snappy nose has loads of banana, lemon, orange zest and bubble gum..no fruit added, thanfully. It's not needed.
Lemon dies down in the taste, but is replaced with some mild clove. The banana is clean and a touch of vanilla enters and exits quickly. Damn quenchable, but would perhaps like to see a bit more carbonation for that extra zip. This thing went down quick and at 4.3abv that's a good thing. (617 characters)

On tap at Freshcraft in Denver, CO.

Pours a hazy light yellow color with a 1/2 inch white head that fades to a thin cap. No lacing whatsoever. Smells of wheat, honey, banana, and clove/spice. Taste is of wheat and honey with some floral notes. This beer has high carbonation with a fizzy and crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good hefeweizen with wheat and honey flavors. I usually don’t like hefeweizens but I enjoyed this one very much. My first beer from Dry Dock. (472 characters)

Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow color with straw/hay colored hues and a half finger frothy white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. Minimal lacing left behind.

Slightly zesty, peppery aroma with hints of clove, bready yeast, banana and citrus rind.

Fuller boded than expected with a luscious bready yeast character that adds fullness and complexity. Huge banana presence that slightly overpowers the pepper and clove notes. Not much citrus flavor which is a disappointment but it's pretty easy to drink, especially during the warmer months. (551 characters)
