4.5/5 rDev +29.7%
Had this on tap at Exile. It pours an awesome orange hazy color. The smell of the beer is some orange, clove and banana. What I really enjoyed about this beer is the taste. It does not have a huge flavor explosion in your mouth like most hefe's, which I like. Lots of clove and banana in there with a touch of orange. Probably my favorite beer at Exile Brewery.

So glad to have found my notes from a late August 2012 visit; I enjoyed 2 half-liter glasses on a late summer afternoon. 'Pints' at the brewery are served in sturdy steins, tall and slender. Enjoyed one in the shady heat of the outside patio, another inside with dinner.
A: A cloudy and yeasty deep golden pour with a healthy white topping, dense & creamy. Lace doesn't stick much in this glass, maybe a wider or flared shape would help? Fairly steady carbonation.
S: Enticing bready/clove/bubble gum scent - as 'authentic' as any of the better US-versions of Germanic hefeweizens I've come across.
T: As good as the scent is, flavors are equally as good. Rich hay, dry grass maltiness, touch of lemon, ample clove/candy sweetness. Very likable.
M: Creamy, well-built and satisfying carbonation. Never too thin - just very refreshing and vibrant. Body is light-medium, the way a lower alcohol weissbier should be.
O: Quaffable. SO good on a hot day. As mentioned before, it's about as authentic a 'German' as I've run across in the US. Love the style and very much liked this version. Well done, Exile!

12oz bottle without a clear best by date. Poured into a hefeweizen glass 9/1/2014.
A- Hazy copper body. Looks like apple cider. Two finger white head with very good retention, but nothing close to what a German hefeweizen would look like. Leaves a thick film on the surface. Not much lacing to be seen. 
S- Grainy wheat and a bit of clove. Not much else. I don't get a lot of banana or bubblegum qualities from the yeast here. I'm not sure what's going on here, but this isn't impressing me very much. [2.5]
F- A bit of pale malt sweetness, some wheat, and a sharp bite of clove. As in the nose, there isn't much of banana or bubblegum that I would expect from the hefeweizen yeast. I'm not sure what kind of yeast they used, but it's not quite right. [2.75]
M- Medium body, smooth and not terribly difficult to drink. Not watery, just not a complex flavour profile consistent with what it says it is. Sharp clove bite on the back end. 
O- This is a solid beer that doesn't quite fit what I have in mind when I hear Bavarian-style wheat ale. I'm not sure what yeast was used, but it's not anywhere near as interesting as the original German versions. [2.75]
Final score: 2.7375

A- hefe yeast comes through with a little bread, some clove.
Smell: Clove, maybe some bubble gum.
Taste: Strong bubblegum and almost bandaid taste. There is a presence of some spice from the yeast.
Mouthfeel: Sharp from the combination of the high carb and the spice from the hefe yeast.
Overall: The bubblegum/band-aid flavors made this undrinkable. Just not for me. I normally like Hefe's so I was a little surprised.
