Very cloudy golden color, head lacking for the style.

Smell is bananas up front and bananas in the back. Hops slight. Hints also of yeast, bread grain, clove, and fruit (maybe some apricot).

Carbonation is moderate, body is lighter.

On the tongue, banana and yeast. Finish is not dry, but slick and refreshing, with bananas and yeastiness lingering. A little chalky.

Banana is everywhere, and plenty of it. A good hefeweizen from the Mash House. I wish they would start bottling more of their styles.

I was not expecting much from this small regional restaurant family, but this one was a pleasant surprise. The Hefeweizen provides a solid first impression, but I'm not convinced right away because it doesn't seem hard to make a good looking wheat beer. This one fits the standard mold, with a cloudy lemon yellow color, but no head because of an overly-generous pour. My opinion starts to turn with the first smell. The aroma is predominantly a dry, fruity sweetness. The flavor is not too bold but is likewise surprisingly pleasant, with dominant flavors of bananas, with additional notes of clove, yeast, and a hint of lemon. The mouthfeel is silky, smooth, and quite enjoyable. Overall, although not powerfully flavorful, this selection is tasty and drinkable.

Enjoyed a pair of these tonight at the restaurant with an excellent beef stroganoff. I don't usuallly think of March as Hefeweizen time but we've had some unseasonable heat lately. Served in a standard MH pint glass which obviously throttled the head potential and it was down to a cap by the time it arrived but did feature a beautiful tannish orange color with great cloudiness. The nose wasn't real strong but smelled pleasant and very natural, without some of the over the top banana//clove ester stuff you get sometimes in domestic examples of the style.

The taste was likewise undrestated but tasty and obviously very fresh. Had a likable yeasty quality and the texture was spot on, without overcarbonation and a crisp, quenching finish. Definitely worth a shot at the brewpub; these guys almost never disappoint.

One of my best friends is stationed in Fayetteville and the brewpub there is his favorite after work stop, I was fortunate enough to go with him during my latest visit. This was, unfortunately, my least favorite brew that they offered.

A - Deep orange haze that fades out to a milky yellow, almost reminiscent of Widmer.

S - Very strong blend of banana and clove, which was quite sweet.

T - Too much spice, not enough citrus, and the alcohol was undetectable. I thought I was drinking some sort of protein shake.

M - Light to medium light body, but overly spiced.

D - For someone not looking for a beer, this would be a great drink, for hefe fans however, I would not recommend.

Poured on-tap at The Mash House and served in a weisse vase, the beer is opaque, with a peach-orange coloring, and no head. Nose of subtle orange peel and coriander, with a bready backbone. Flavors are slightly sour forward, with orange peel, curacao, and clove. The sour tones really blow the whole deal for me. Smooth, light bodied, with a subtle spice linger in the clean finish. The aftertaste is more of the sour notes.

My first beer of the night at the Mash House. Served in a Weizen glass with a cross section of orange attached to it (which I quickly discarded). Looked good, nice size bubbly head with good retention and more lacing than I am used to on a hefe. Cloudy straw gold color.

Smell was good. Had all the usual suspects: Cloves, banana, wheat, spices. Tasted good....not overwhelmingly great but not a "Widmer-Brothers style" mediocre hefe either.

Taste did not disappoint. All the flavors you would expect, a bit subdued but still refreshing and true to style.

Mouthfeel is crisp and rich. Carbonation is just right.

Overall a good take on a Hefeweizen.

Served on-tap at Bogart's in Raleigh in a pint glass with a slice of orange. Removed the orange.

Poured a murky golden/orange/yellow hue with quite a bit of wheaty haze. Relatively thick white head. Nose was strong with wheat tones and some slight bits of cloves and citrus around the edges.

Flavor was a solid, striaght-up hefewiezen. Loads of wheat with banana and clove flavors coming through. Some citrus too but that may have been more from the orange, not quite sure. Heavy, pleasant mouthfeel that was not cloying at all. Just a slightly dry finish.

The beer arrived on the table a murky tannish golden but very lightly so. The head was well lasting and white and laced the glass.

The aroma was restrained fruitiness, namely banana, with a nice clove spice complexity and wheat aromatics.

The flavor was banana most notably with a slight spice as the fruit flavors lessened and the beer warmed. The beer also contained a nice malt backbone and a good wheat flavor.

The finish was just dry with lasting wheat flavor coupled with light banana fruitiness into the finish. The body was medium and well done. Nice job for a not overpowering hefe.

On tap at the Brewpub, served with a lemon. 5% ABV, 10 IBU.

Sampled at the brewpub. Hazy and opaque with a slick film top and a vaguely yeasty aroma. This drinks smoothly with a sweet fruit esther base, not quite as pronouced as tye prototypical banana, but nice. True to style, but somewhat restrained , light and fizzy-bodied, not as "chewy" as some hefeweizens. (#2803, 4/21/07)

Standard hefe weizen look, more cloudy yellow then orange, served with just some patchy lace over the top. Nose is fresh banana. Taste starts with malts and fresh banana, slightly sweet not too grainy, there is a very mild clove taste along with very mild hops on the finish. Not bitey, smooth body, pretty decent for the style.
