Reviewed 12/6/2007 (Tap @ BJs Clear Lake):

Pours an orange cloudy colored body, with little head, white in color. Has a sweet aroma, with clove, and fresh light hop & fruit. Sharp taste, banana, somewhat fizzy, light fruit. Tasty and not too light tasting. Really fizzy as it warms up. Orangey.

On tap at BJ’s in Allen, Texas. The beer pours a hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and banana, about what I expected. The flavor is not as good as the aroma. I gt some wheat and banana, but I also get something that reminds me of a plastic bucket. The flavor starts off OK, but as I drank more, it just became gross. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Enjoyed on tap in Glendale. Didn't look it, but a serviceable hefe. Cloudy dark yellow colour with a white lacey head. Drying, with bannana, a little sour in the finish combined with sugar. Average mouthfeel still smooth. A drink of contrasts that still worked.

On tap at the Rancho Cucamonga, CA location. Poured a cloudy yellow about the color of a semi-ripe banana. The smell is pretty mild. Wheat and not really much else is apparent to me in the aroma. The taste is primarily wheat and a nice backing of banana. The banana is not too overbearing, it mainly comes through at the finish and is very pleasant. The best tasting hefeweizen I've had, though I don't drink them often. The mouthfeel was good, there was nothing too wrong with it. With the mild banana taste and nice mouthfeel, this beer is easy to drink, especially in hot weather like right now.

Hazy yellow, poured with minimal foam. The head that was present stayed for a bit.

Banana aroma, with some vanilla, and a bit of bubblegum. Typical, nice hefeweizen aroma.

Tart up front, big banana falvor, with vanilla and bubblegumnot far behind. Not quite enough bitterness, as I found this to be a bit sweet for my tastes. Still very nice.

Light bodied. Could use a bit more carbonation to make it spritzy and refreshing like the classics. Overall, very nice. Well done.

I had the beer at a BJ's in Gainseville, FL.... it had a nutty taste with some spicy hops. Overall the beer was a little boring, but good. It would go good with a pizza, but unfortunately, I did not have time for that. It had an orange color, and no strong lacing. If I went back, I would order this again.

This hefe displays an extremely cloudy, medium gold appearance with a thin white head. The glass was served pretty damn full, hard to blame the lack of a traditionally large hefe foam on the beer. Otherwise a pretty good looking hefeweizen.

Nose has some bananas and lemons with a crisp wheat aroma. Minimal clove, but the bananas are pretty nice here. I'm glad this is a German style hefe as opposed to another American wheat masquerading in a hefeweizen name.

Tastes pretty good as well, better than the last time I remember having it. Banana is the most prevalent yeast ester with a bit of mild clove making an appearance. Silky finish but unfortunately not overly creamy, could use a bit more body. Some grainy malts give a nice complement to the wheat. A pretty solid hefeweizen and one I would gladly order again, especially considering the severe lack of brewpubs in Houston.

Poured a very nice orange with a heavy yeast cloud into a weiss glass with a 1" head, and maintained fairly nice lacing. The nose had subdued notes of banana and clove, but mainly wheat came through. The same thing could be said of the palate...a touch of banana and clove, light bubble gum, sweet wheat, and a touch of bittering hops. Overall an OK hefe, good for someone who typically drinks light lagers and is felling adventurous.
