Had on tap at Fat Head's. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy amber color with a nice white/foamy head on top with great retention and lacing.

S: Lots of banana and clove, with hints of bubblegum and some grassy hops.

T: The spices and bubblegum are more prominent on the flavor profile mixed in with more banana. There is a bit of citrus rind as well and some clove and pepper.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

O: A solid hefe, easy drinking with the flavors I look for in the style.

This poured out as a bright yellow color with a haziness to it and a white head on top. The smell of the beer had the traditional clove and banana like aromas to it. The taste of the beer was decent, it was a little lighter in flavor than I expected though. The mouthfeel was a bit on the watery side with a slightly aggressive amount of carbonation to it. Overall it's a decent Hefe, nothing too crazy going on here.

Super cloudy, super mucky. Dark muddy orange. Retaining a thin cap well. 3.5

Bubble gum, desserty banana, tutti frutti, and light lemon and orange. Ridiculously fruity and exquisite. Only the faintest hint of clove. 4.5

More clove-y in the taste. Lots of bubble gum and assorted citrus. Big banana element blends with smacking malty wheat. Smooth flavors, no huskiness. Ripe and very expressive. Teeny trace of booze in the finish, where the clove spice crescendos. Low carbonation, but a luxurious wide body. Milky smooth. 4.0, 4.0

Long time coming before trying this. A beer I'd buy a keg of for the house. 4.5

Appearance - The appearance certainly reminds us that this is a Hefeweizen. A sour-looking cidery yellow and green. Opaque and cloudy without looking murky at all. Looks absolutely delicious.

Smell - Aromas of light apple and banana. A bready Belgian nose upfront. Pleasant, but not overpowering.

Taste - Wow, not what I was expecting. Complex and lightly sour apple slides into fresh bananas. The fruits then slide into a sweet malty back. Wheaty, but not too grassy or overdone with earth-tones. A multitude of flavors. I was very impressed with this beer.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Light, springy, with some thickness in the consistency. Lightly sour bananas and apples. Really, really nice.

Served on tap into a wheat beer glass at the brewpub

A- Poured a super hazy bright golden color with a nice frothy head that left lots of chunky lace. A perfect looking hefeweizen.

S- Very big fresh and authentic banana aroma and some bready/wheat qualities. Intensely banana smelling beer

T- This is maybe the most banana forward tasting hefeweizen I have had, some pretty big wheat/bread notes, light clove, and a pretty big mineral taste

M- Quite smooth, soft carbonation, finished dry

O- A really nice hefeweizen with big banana flavor and a nice wheat backbone.

First beer of the night, while eating dinner with my family. I had this clouded banana smoothie golden colored beer sitting in a tall hefe 0.5 liter glass, with a brilliant white head creamy and cloudy appearance looked delicious. Nice introduction into their lineup, fine even intricate lacing left behind, the beer has a great head retention the wheat definitely provides some protein along with all of the yeast sediment. Aroma has bubblegum, clove, and highlights the banana esters in this one, super good fruit earth light herbal quality with some powdered yeast notes. Flavor, not overly sweet balanced mix of bubblegum, citrus sharp wheat notes, clove, and banana with the yeast working it's magic giving it a ton of flavor yet keeping it very drinkable. First off you have to be able to enjoy a good hefeweizen, by the way this is a great version of it. Dead on German style, I can't tell you many better American ones out there. Mouthfeel is light to medium, effervescent sturdy carbonation flows tight, small bubbles cascade from the bottom of the glass. Overall, this beer is hard to describe, you just want to drink it, you don't want to waste time analyzing it. Delicious wheat beer, if you don't like them quit reviewing them.

A-cloudy yellow with a thick sturdy head

S-smells like spicy german wheats and banana. good strong scent!

T-comes in with a smooth and slightly bitter taste of quality spicy german wheats. its actually a pretty impressive taste though clearly not authentic. matching after-taste.

M-creamy medium carbonation with a semi-dry finish

O-usually when i get a hefe from a small american micro brewery, i expect it to be more of an american pale wheat ale. this tasted as close to an authentic hefe as any american hefe i've had. it was awesome tasting and cheap and i recommend this to any hefe fan.
