Big thanks to zathrus13 for sending this one via Eric. Pours a cloudy apricot color with a medium white head. The aroma is full of many different things; dried bananas, wheat, cloves, and some wheat. The flavor is also quite nice; a rich apricot and spicy mix, some yeast and dry wheat flavors, a bit of citrus, tangy lemons and some apple cinnamon too. A great full and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a rich and tasty Hefe, and a nice example of the style.

Best american wiesse I've had better than most Germans to my taste. Fresh. And in cans (best by 7/20/14).

A: A cloudy dark golden yellow apricot. Sports a finger tall creamy dense white head that slowly reduces to a thin film with moderate lace.

S: Nice aromas (to style of) banana and clove, with some orange citrus.

T: Follows the smell, with estery banana and clove flavors. Plus orange citrus and wheat.

M: Tingly, medium bodied, bright. Creamy.

O: Loved it. Recommend for summer.

Definitely a sweet aroma on this. Good amount of banana found on the nose with a hint of citrus. A delicious smelling hefeweizen.

The taste doesn't let down. It's one of the more fruity, banana forward hefe's I can recall drinking. For me this is a positive. I love that. Cloves are also present in the passenger seat. Just a hint of citrus and wheat comes along for the ride, but in the end this is a fairly sweet beer. Also, carbonation seems to be pretty high in this one. Just an observation.

I did a taster at Sly Fox, and this is one of the two beers I bought to take back with me. I think it's their best I have tasted. Top notch!

A: First hefeweizen out of a can for me. Poured a bright straw yellow with about a finger coaxed out of it. Foam had big white bubbles that faded fast. Thick cloudiness and medium light carbonation.

S: Big sweet banana smells. Spice or coriander and nutmeg. Big yeastiness. White bread and crackers.

T: Starts off very bready with bread yeast. Fruity pineapple sweetness rounds out the wheat. Finishes zesty and tangy with orange, spice and saltiness. A whole lot of tang at the end with coriander and an herbal basil sort of flavor. More wild yeast funk follows up.

M: Big and viscous. Lots of mouth coating unfiltered particles. Finishes tangy which really cleanses most of the big yeast and heavy bread notes.

O: This is a great hefe. I really like the how big and bold the flavors are, yet without overpowering and leaving a heavy feeling at the end. It's all about the finish with this one.

Unfiltered, this beer pours to a cloudy golden hue with a frothy head of white- colored foam. A good whiff reveals scents of wheat, herbs, spice, cloves, and banana peel. A positive impression greets the senses long before taking the first sip.

Tasting this beer continues the positive vibes. Flavors of wheat, yeast, clove, honey, and some dough form the backbone of the flavor. Bitterness is low, at least based on IBU, and other fruit flavors like orange and lemon become more noticeable with each drink.

This is a tasty hefeweizen overall with some good complexity and interesting nose and flavor. I wasn’t so sure with my first can, if I really liked this beer as much as I should, but my second can quickly won me over. The herbs, spice, fruit, yeast, etc., make this beer an enjoyable one and keep you guessing. It’s definitely a beer worth trying of you get the chance.
