Swirled in all kinds of bottom-can yeast to get a truly turbid sunset color. Head rose and popped down to a disintegrating foam cap. Looks the part.
Bubblegum, lemon peel, hefe yeast, German wheat, musty banana, and a touch of mace. Nice and spicy. Great nose.
Spicy clove, wheat, lemon peel, unripe banana, yeast muck, nuttiness, touch of white pepper, and bubblegum. One of the spicier hefes I've tasted. Hints of grains of paradise notes and orange rind. Kind of a clove bomb, with a touch of white pepper. Good stuff.
Milky body with some slickness. Holds mouth weight. Carbonation is only a sparse tickle. Slammable.
Very good hefe. Pretty spot-on. Some craft flair that doesn't go awry. Done right. Love that it's in a can.

Appearance: 1.5 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, hazy
Smell: banana, coriander, and fresh wheat
Taste: banana, lemon, coriander, and fresh wheat
Mouthfeel: sweet, medium bodied and moderate carbonation
Overall: A really good domestic hefe where the wheat shines. It seems really fresh in the can. Hits all the typical marks in the style as the banana taste is spot on. Easily do a six of these.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.
Appearance: Pale cloudy yellow. Looks orange when held away from the light. A relatively aggressive pour plus the high carbonation produces a fast forming foamy head but subsides faster than I would like without much lacing.
Smell: Wheat, banana and only a hint of clove.
Taste: Strong wheat taste with a good amount of banana as well. The clove is pretty light. There is a lingering wheat aftertaste that just barely detracts from an otherwise outstanding tasting Hefeweizen.
Feel: Pretty high carbonation, with a very smooth, creamy body that is fuller than expected. Mostly dry finish.
Drinkability: Outstanding Hefe, up there with Schell's as a top echelon American made example of the style.

3.45/5 rDev -10.9%
Hazy wheat hue unfiltered 100%, beige head fine speckled lacing. Aroma big over ripened banana notes with clove and vanilla exploding on the senses. Flavor has bubblegum sweetness, clove and vanilla, a hint of citrus and malted wheat notes. Big over ripened banana pushes it into the realm of almost cloying, which doesn't settle well with me considering a can of Nebraska Brewing Eos hefeweizen cans in the Burgh will run you around 40 bucks plus tax. Needless to say there's many better PA brewed versions including Yuengling Summer wheat, the mouthfeel on this has some sturdy carbonation big malt layers, sharp wheat/citrus some balance but the yeast phenolics here are out of control with the ripe banana, vanilla, clove notes making it a bit cloying for me. Overall, still easy to drink and a solid American version of a hefeweizen just nowhere near as good as the German versions or Pennsylvania Deutsch population that has carried on the tradition of great hefeweizen.

halfway between a regular wheat and a hefe.Decent drinking beer, not the best of the style. Orange coloured body, lacey. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. A little clove,a tad of bannana,understated carbonation and that's a good thing. On tap at The Ginger Man NYC.

Pours a hazed amber with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Pretty average for lacing & head retention

T: Green bananas, sweet breadyness pears, slight grassiness, slight metallic hoppyness up front. More green bananas, pears & metallic notes as this warms. Finishes with green bananas, sweet doughyness, pears & a little bit of dryness & cloves
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation
This impressed me, pretty well thought out hefe, very drinkable

On tap @ TJ’s (Paoli, PA) on 5/14/11. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a hazy gold, topped with a finger of bright-white colored head. This retains with a thin sudsy look, leaving back some minimal lacing. The aroma is very estery smelling, with notes of ripe bananas and spicy clove. A crisp bready twang of wheat is quite supportive underneath. The yeast really gives this some thickness in the nose.
The taste is a combo of bready biscuits and tight twanginess on the palate, with soft fruit and assertive clove flavors taking control. This finishes lightly grainy with some lingering dry fruitiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a moderate crispness to the carbonation but this does have a certain amount of heft to it that unfortunately keeps this from being overly refreshing feeling.
This was decent. The yeast definitely added a healthy dose of flavor to this but also held the drinkability back some as well. Flavor wins out though in my book. Get a pint of this if you see it and take your time.

Pours a hazy golden color with a pure white head that settles into a solid ring. Nice banana aroma, with some clove and bubblegum as well. Not much else to say, spot on. The taste starts off with a lemony tartness which is followed by a candied banana flavor and some grains. A bit too sugary and not enough of the yeasty phenols but decent bavarian hefe taste. Light to moderate body with fizzy carbonation. Feels a tad thin for the style. The hefe drinks very easy and is fairly crisp. Good beer to drink outdoors while grilling food. Worth a try but it won't blow you away.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bananas and spices. Taste is the same, some banana, spices, a touch of wheat, highly refreshing and the glass is getting empty quick. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a great warm weather session beer.

On-tap at Nebraska Brewing Co. - Papillion, NE...
Appearance: Very cloudy / hazy golden body presented with a lemon inside of the Hefeweizen glass.
Smell/Taste: Banana, cloves, vanilla. They nail this one right on the head as far as a German style Hefeweizen is concerned.
Mouthfeel: Light refreshing body with plenty of carbonation and a clean, crisp finish.
Overall: On point.

Served on-tap at TJ's.
A: The hefeweizen is a golden color, hazy and clouded over. A finger of white head along for the ride.
S: Wheat, pleasantly tart, along with biscuity breads and banana sweetness. After the still-resonating clove intensity of Penn Weizenbock, a beer of this subtle nature easily gets lost. Late in the game clove returns.
T: Another good hefeweizen, summer's almost here! Sweet banana and tart wheat, more predominantly the wheat, are present throughout. A grassy hop finish is an undercurrent, as are the clove flavors. Biscuity malts are a pleasant support for the wheat. The wheat leaves a dry finish.
M: The mouthfeel is banana and wheat, tart and sweet, with a drying aspect that makes me want another sip. My second run-in with Nebraska Brewing and I like what I taste.

4.03/5 rDev +4.1%
A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and does not have any visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that completely faded away.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of wheat and sourness in the nose. Hints of lemon are also noticeable.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is slightly tart and sour with flavors of wheat plus hints of bananas and clove.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a light amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very refreshing and easy to drink. The sourness and tartness is unique for the style and makes this rather interesting compared to other hefeweizens.
