On tap at BJ's in Valencia, CA.

Pours a murky gold with a beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form randomly around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, clove, bubblegum, and some subtle banana aromas. Taste is very much the same with a slightly medicinal flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a somewhat thin and watery mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good hefeweizen but it's lacking in the mouthfeel in my opinion.

This was on tap in Reno, NV. Very pretty, just what a hefe should look like. Bold gold with just thick and perfect haze throughout, great head, great lace. So close to perfect, if not perfect. Good fruity aroma, not clovey, way to go!

Flavor was big on citrus, small on bandaids and clove, nice. Really brought the fruit flavor better than almost every hefe out there. Bitterness and hops are kept the heck out of there. No alcohol noticeable. Don't check this out if you don't like banana or citrus, because its very much what it delivers.

Very solid stuff from the best chain brewery in the world.

First had: on tap at BJ's, Westminster, CO

Poured a cloudy, pale, golden-yellow with a small cap of white that reduced to a thin layer of random bubbles. Aroma of bready yeast and fruity notes with a dash of spice. Sweet and malty taste, with the typical wheat profile, bready, with some pleasant citrus zest. Not as chewy and banana-y as typical hefeweizen, but still having a nice light spice to it. Light-medium body and moderately drinkable.

Sampled at the Citrus Park Mall in Tampa, FL.

Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold. Big bubbles. Bright white head drops readily. Actually looks more like a Belgian wit than a Bavarian hefeweizen.

Smell: Sulphur. Yeast. Mild citrus-like fruitiness. Low level basic maltiness.

Taste: Sweet malt that's just a touch wheaty. Lemon. Low level bitterness. It's not at all complex, but very refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Light body. Crisp.

Drinkability: It's not the banana and clove that's usually found, which leaves it fairly unique (not that you can't find hefeweizens that utilize this yeast, but they're not as common). Quite refreshing and tasty. Very drinkable.

Saint Arnold's brews this beer for BJ's in Houston

Pours ½ finger of white head. Color is a hazed pale sunset yellow.

Aroma: Fruity and yeast. Bananas, bubblegum, clove, wheat, spice, and a hint of lemon zest.

Taste: Floral and herbal hops. Bubblegum, bananas, cloves, wheat, light spice notes. Kind of sweet.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. Light bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean with spice flavors.

Overall, a really easy drinking hefe. Solid flavors all around. I could easily drink more of this one.

Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a one finger to a one and a half finger head that gives way to some decent lacing. The aroma is of wheat malt and yeast along with some subtle hints of banana and clove. The taste is of wheat and pale malt with a slight taste of banana and clove. The taste isn't that strong. The mouthfeel is low carbonation and medium bodied. The drinkability is good, it has a nice easy drinkability to it. The taste however, isn't as strong i would have hope for.

6 oz tap pour in a mini pilsner glass. 4.8% ABV, On tap at BJ's in Huntington Beach, CA.

A - The look of this hefe is solid right out of the gate. Hazy golden yellow with a foamy white head with decent retention and lace left over.

S - Harvest Hefe has hints of a classic hefe but doesn't reach the level I had hoped for. It's got the yeast with hints of banana and clove backed up by wheat but nothing impressing about it.

T - The wheat and pale malts step up a bit in the flavor but in turn, push the nice clove and banana yeast esters back to a to-thin level.

M - A lot of wheat comes out giving the body a soft and medium-bodied texture but the flavor still remains thin across the palate.

D - Smooth and easy drinking, Harvest Hefe is on it's way to being a solid hefe but it could use a little work in the flavor department.
