Reviewed on 6/21/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, spices, but mostly lots of sweet malt. Flavor is dominated by the wheat malt with some sweet fruits and spices. This is more of a wheat ale vs. a hefeweizen but overall was pretty tasty.

Presentation was an off brown and orange color with a nice cloudiness. Really no head when served. Had the typical aroma of banana and clove, but it also had the extra presence of malt and hops that I usually don't find in this style as much. Medium bodied, strong wheat presence. Nicely carbonated and easy to drink.

Had this on tap at their Oktoberfest event.

A - Cloudy yellow-orange, like a wheat beer should be. Not much head, but as with their Oktoberfest they were pouring a lot ahead of time to accommodate the crowd.

S - Wheat, citrus, clove and banana, malt.

T - Fruity, spicy. You can pretty directly taste the clove and banana.

M - Bit of a sour finish, but overall smooth with medium heaviness.

O - Only had this one twice in two years, and I'd have it again. Fresh and pretty easy-drinking.

Had on tap on 7/20/13. Color was a cloudy yellow with little head. Smell was skunky which is not typical for this type. Taste was sour and finished terribly. Overall a lousy beer. Perhaps it was a bad batch but I wouldn't have it again. I make better hef's at home.

Cloudy yellow color, typical to the style. Looks like a liquid banana. The smell to me was very unpleasant and reminded me of sulfur and rotten eggs. Taste was much better but still did not compare too well to some of the better hefes I've had. A lot of citric acid and lemon, but not much else. Light in terms of alcohol and drinkability wasn't bad. At best, a pretty average hefe.
