Comes in a hazy orange, yellow color with a foamy head.

The taste is wonderful. Huge banana bumble gum, a smooth wheat mouthfeel, and a slight hint of lemon. A round complex flavor. There isn't much spiciness, but more of that bready banana fruity roundness.

One of my favorite hefeweizens.

Best by 7/26/13.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, fermented banana, and some earthy spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a distinct caramel covered banana flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but slightly medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

Poured two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is banana and lemon with a sharp grapefruit injection. Nice though.
The taste is very "wheaty" with some banana, finishes with a slight sour note.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
A tasty hefe with a bit different taste, but still nice.

Cloudy amber in the pint shaker-- it's the classic look. Rather modest head for a Hefeweizen, but quite spritzy and sharp in the mouth.

This one is a little more tart and edgy than some of the bubblegum monsters. It does have a pleasant mouthful of the German esters. A nice banana tang. More fruity than most with a great nose of peaches and cherries. Just a hint of cloves. Seemingly untouched by hops, but somehow perfectly balanced.

Another example of the Germans knowing what they're doing with these classic styles. On tap at Pizza Port in Ocean Beach.
