Reviewed 3/16/2008 (Sampler @ 4 Queens, Las Vegas, NV):

Pours a cloudy yellow colored body, but with absolutely no head. Has a very lemony aroma. Has a lemony, banana flavor. Fizzy palate. Pretty tasty and refreshing. Probably the best beer I had here.

This hefeweizen had a hazy yellow colour and smelled of sweet Belgian yeasts. Tasted sweetly malty with citrus, and banana fruit notes given from the yeasts. The wheat was present as well, but everything was well blended.

Would I buy this beer again? Yes.

Thanks forgetfu for this extra
A: A hazey orange with slight caronation present. The head retreats super fast is leaves nothing behind.
S: Wheat aroma that has a grainy note.
T/M: subtle notes of orange and clove. A good hefe, but missing some carbonation. Light on the mouthfeel as well.
D: easy going brew, but missing key flavors.

Consumed 05/11/08 at Chicago Brewing Co. & Cigar Lounge, Las Vegas.

Cloudy medium yellow. A little ring of foam clings to the glass sides.

Aroma is Bavarian style: banana, citrus, wheat.

Flavor is like nose: banana, orange peel, wheat, maybe even a hint of clove. Texture is nicely smooth. Undercarbonated, though.

I've had worse...

Poured on-tap into a pint glass. The Wheat is an unfiltered, and has a nice bright yellow-ish color. There was only a very slight smell to the beer, one of light malt, which became surprising once the beer was tasted. The beer has a heavy nutmeg and lemony flavor, which is sneaky after the lack of smell. The feel and finish of the beer are fairly typical of most wheats. Easy enough to drink, but not overly memorable.

Appearance: hazy pale yellow in color with a 1/2" head. The head falls rather quickly. No lacing develops.

Smell: grainy wheat and some bananas.

Taste: the wheat backbone is slightly weaker than expected, and the bananas, coriander, and hint of citrus were up front. Very dry overall. Barely any bitterness.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp and very dry overall. Mildly refreshing. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Drinkability: not bad, but the overall dryness gets slightly tiring after a while. With so many better offerings at Chicago, you may want to pass this one up.

Cloudy murky pale yellow pour. Smell is light clove, and the standard in hefeweizen yeast, but muted somewhat. Some wheat in the taste and light clove along with an enjoyable wheat finish. This was decent and one of their better beers, although I don't typically enjoy the style a lot.

Consumed 1/3/10 at the Four Queens in Vegas.

A - Cloudy like crystallized honey. Low bone color head. Good lacing.

S - Thick and yeasty. Fruity notes especially apple and banana peel. The balance was great.

T - Sweet, crystalline. Yeast and malty flavors come out and balance nicely on my tongue. Really one of the smoothest and tastiest Hefeweizens I've ever had, and I'm not the biggest fan of this style.

M - Frothy, smooth, silky going down.

D - This was a great Weizen. I don't usually get into this style but this was pretty good. I'd have this again and again. It's not overly hoppy or sour like a lot of people make it.

Thin head on a cloudy golden with slight copper hue body. Honey, banana, pineapple, other tropical fruits, pale malts. Flavor follows almost exactly with syrup notes too. Oily palate coating mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and medium body. Very drinkable, decently flavorful too. As good as I would expect for the style but still not memorable.

Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin ivory colored head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of wheat and banana. Light, clean body with flavors of wheat, banana and a touch of cloves. The finish is fruity and leaves a mild spice and wheat aftertaste. Fairly straightforward and average all around.
