This should be called Bavarian Hefeweizen rather than Belgian. And...it stays true to style! I am very accustomed to American beers calling themselves Hefeweizen but really not resembling the title; instead, they are often Pale Wheat Ales of some other sort. This brew, on the other hand, looks, smells, tastes, and feels like a true Hef. Lucky for me, they did not try to give it to me with a lemon. The light golden-yellow liquid is cloudy but easily translucent with a little white head. Cloves and citrus come through in the aroma. The taste is a little bitter but grainy unmalted wheat and some biscuity malts balance the hops nicely, leaving a tangy residual pleasantness. Feels just like it should; tastefully carbonated with a slightly creamy medium-light body. This is the best Hefeweizen around, but that is not saying too much.

Had on tap 7/17/09 at the brew pub pizza shop. took the lemon out.
appearance: a hazy golden shade with a nice quarter inch of pure white foam on top that laced nicely down the glass.
aroma: spicy and and peppery/clovey yeast smell -- very, very minor banana.
taste: smooth with a nice pepper/clove taste upfront, just an occasional banana flavor with a well balanced hint of malt and bitterness to balance out the spice.

North Fork's printed menu lists this as Bavarian Hefeweizen. On the beer board it just says Hef. Somehow I wasn't expecting a traditional Bavarian-style wheat beer replete with a classic cloven nose (don't you just love a good cloven nose?) and related spice phenols. The Hef is dense ochre and sits sullenly in the glass with little carbonation and not a thread of lace or head. It also shows a touch more bittering than one might expect.
A worthy tribute beer, though when served past its prime it shows obvious decay. 4.8% ABV.
