Sampled on tap at brewery.

A: Poured a cloudy golden-orange with a 1 finger frothy white head that displayed great retention lasting for several minutes before yielding to a thin, creamy layering.

S: The nose had some typical cloves, bananas, and soft wheat scents.

T: The flavor had a sweet and creamy wheat backbone with cloves, bananas and a nice spicy hoppiness. There was some fresh oranges detected as well.

M: light in nature with a soft wheaty creaminess. Some bright oranges and spiciness sneak in.

D: Goes down pretty good. A good session hefe.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Apparently an alias for the "Hefeweizen," but it was labeled as Front Street Wheat on the tap and the bottles.

Hazy, golden-orange pour with a moderate fizzy white head that receded to a thin ringlet. Typical wheat profile in the nose, cloves and a touch of banana esters. Bready yeast in the taste, banana and clove, light twinges of citrus. Light body, a bit prickly with carbonation, decently drinkable. A nice wheat beer overall.

A-Cloudy orangish-yellow with a medium white head that reduced to a thin film. Nice lacing in the hefe glass.

S-Bready wheat malt meets soft clove and lemon.

T-Sweet wheat malt meets nice spice, light hoppiness and lemon zing. Not much banana in this one.

M-Light body with a soft creaminess and pleasnt citrus zing.

D-Easy going and smooth. This is a nice light sitrus hefe. Guy told me that the yeast he uses acts differently at various fermenting temps...lower you get lemon/citrus, higher you get banana...he opted for lower...and I agree and like his choice.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a crisp and fruity pale and wheat malt scent along with a solid hefe yeast character. There is a mild banana/clove aroma along with bit of citrus as well. The taste is average. It has an easy drinking pale and wheat malt flavor. It's light and quaffable with a touch of citrus and a faint hefe yeast fruitiness. It's not as flavorful as some hefes on the market and the yeast character is weak as well. The mouthfeel is decent. It's a medium/full bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer, but it's an average hefe thats lacking character.

On tap at One Guy and served in a traditional 500ml hefe glass. Appears a cloudy muted golden yellow color with a solid three fingers of white foam above the 500ml mark. Always a great pour. Smells and tastes of citrus fruits such as lemon, spicy yeast, mild wheat. The lemon is the star with the clove and banana notes usually found in a hefe taking a back seat. To me, this is a good thing. Crisp and creamy with medium to moderate carbonation. Drinkable, enjoyable, and approachable. Rather quenching as well.

Had this one on tap today at the brewery.

Appearance: Pours your standard straw blond with orange highlights. The crown is 2 fingers, white, shows good retention and lace.

Smell: Coriander, clove, banana, and wheat....the way a Hefe should smell!

Taste: Same as nose but it doesn't come together as well.

Mouthfeel: A bit messy but decent.

Drinkability: Pretty sessionable but the flavor and mouthfeel hold it back.

this is a nice golden, hazy hefe with a tall white head that fades to lacinng almost immediately. the requisite hefe aroma is almost all there too, the citrus, malt and a tiny bit of spice make a showing, but it's still lacking some of the better fruity esters that I like from the hefe yeast. the taste follows suite with a lot from the citrus corner, and a bit of sweet malt flavor that fades to a dry finish. plenty of carbonation left on this growler, but the mouthfeel is a bit too watery. a good drinkable hefe though.
