Draft offering at the Pittsburgh location served in a weizen glass. The brew appears a clouded yellow color with a thick, dense white cap that perists throughout the experience. It leaves some spotty lace on the glass with patches when swirled.

The aroma is a banana bomb with accenting notes of bubblegum and clove spice coming in secondary. There is some overall wheaty grain touches to this but the overall feel of the nose comes primarily from the yeast and in a very pleasant way.

The taste is sweet with a wheat and fresh grain backing. Spice like clove, bubblegum and banana are all present. This is exactly what I have come to expect of a well made hefeweizen and boy does this deliver with beautiful balance as complexity mostly driven by the yeast.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp and clean and super easy drinking. If I didnt have places to me, I could have drank several of these but opted for one and done. Looking forward to having this again next trip.

Pours a light hazed gold. Heady white topping and plenty of lace. Aroma of banana and clove, along with perfumey noble hops. In the flavor, a good bit of banana, clove, and herbal hops. Nice fresh flavors, even, clean finish, small malty sweetness. Medium bodied feel, well carbonated. Overall, a solid hefeweizen, good and fresh tasting.

Draught @ Brewhouse: This one poured a cloudy to opaque straw yellow color. There was a large white head on it. It left a good amount of lacing. The nose was nice, but a little light. There was wheat, clove and a hint of lemon. The taste is good. Wheat, clove, a touch of banana and citrus. Decent body. A solid hefe.
