This brew has always had memories for me and so if my review is high that is probably mostly memories. Reviewed February 3, 2012. Poured a 12 oz bottle into a Weizen glass.
A: This poured a nice cloudy Sunglow. This was one of my first pours into my shorter Weizen glass and because of that the pour was over 3+ fingered. The head lasted all the way till the end.
S: A nice strong fruity banana. A nice sour yeast is nicely present and this is what dominates this brew.
T: Sour yeast, banana, and coriander.
M: This is easily one of the smoothest drink I have ever had. The alcohol taste isn't even there. this feels like a summer drink no questions asked.
O: This is just a nice easy drinker that I think those that don't know beer would even enjoy.

I've had this beer so many times I can't believe I haven't reviewed it. Luckily the bar down the road serves it in the proper glassware. Cloudy gold, big, dense white head. More banana pronounced than most in the style. Clove is in the background along with some vanilla. A nice wheaty, cereal note gives the beer some depth. Creamy with a lively dose of bubbles. Good stuff, and as a plus it's available all over the place these days. My preference is still for Weihenstephan and Schneider and Sohns, though.

Poured into my pint glass a very dull yellow with a nice big fluffy head.
Smells fruity with undertones of yeast and malts.
Tastes of banana and orange peel but was expecting a little bit more due to the smell.
The right level of carbonation, light and smooth.
A very good wheat beer, easy to drink. Would enjoy a few of these during the summer.

.5 L brown bottle poured into a pint glass tumbler.
A: Beautiful cloudy, tawny in colour, quite a lot of fizzy head, even with a slow, deliberate pour. Dissipates moderately quickly, leaving no lacing.
S: Mild spice with the sort of chalky/powdery scent with a mild sweetness too.
T: Upfront sweetness, but not distinctly fruity or malty, just sweet, but a mild sour presence as well.
M: Initially there was a thick, syrupy goodness, but that was quickly replaced by a bit of tangy fizziness. Underlying all is that chalky, almost powdery presence.
O: I love wheat beers, and here's another reason why!

A - dark brown, nice foamy head
S - "yeasty", breadlike, very pleasant aroma
T - Awesome! You can tell the German influence in the aftertaste, but is definitely not overpowering. Very pleasant
M - light carbonation, not heavy, but a creamy texture
O - one of the better Heffas I've tried. Great taste, no alcohol aftertaste. You've gotta try one!
