Brewmaster Phil Markowski has taken a “bahn” less traveled to create our version of the classic Bavarian wheat brew –perfect for the warming temperatures. Beautifully cloudy with a generous head of foam, a wonderful fruit aroma and a dry finish, our Hefeweizen is a refreshing version of the original; with just a little bit more of everything.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured light esters and a soft grassy hop.

The taste offered somewhat muted esters with a thin chewy malt and touch if lemon zest.

The mouthfeel was toward theft thinner side of the style.

Overall a tasty light bodied hefeweizen. (395 characters)

I'm a big fan of Hefeweizens, having consumed/rated just about all the notable German ones (plus the awesome Kellerweis from SN). I know a good hefeweizen when I drink one and this No Limits brew just misses the mark by a bit. It's tasty and refreshing for the summer but the yeast profile lacks that characteristic "oomph" that you get from the opaque German versions. It has a moderate hefe flavor with a bit of tang coupled with some sweetness from the light malts. It has potential but will need some more attention. (520 characters)

I was up in NYC last weekend to finally meet the great JenRay in person after oh-so-many CAN Trades with her in furtherance of The CANQuest (TM) and I even scored some new CANs over the course of the afternoon! What a coup.

From the CAN: "2R:HEF3"; "Take the Bahn Less Traveled"; "Here's to taking the road less traveled, in life and in beer!"

The Crack! was music to mine ears, but an inverted Glug was not to be since it was a pint CAN and this was a super-carbonated beer and foam was its middle name. I have to admit, though, the two-plus finger cap of dense, bone-white head looked like the top of a lemon meringue pie. I was a little disappointed by the beer's presentation, though, as it was hazy but not cloudy. Color was a light lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was kind of muted, but the banana and pink bubble gum was there. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was very muted for the style. Bubble gum was the main flavor, but it just lacked Oomph. I kept agitating the CAN in the hopes of stirring up some lees, but it was not happening. Finish was watery, semi-dry, moderately disappointing in total. I do not know if they filtered it (I hope not), but I think that they could leave more yeast in it to make the flavors more pronounced. (1,259 characters)

Delicious and refreshing, but not exceptional. Certainly not a "bad" beer by any stretch of the imagination, but there's nothing that grabs me and says "wow" about it either. (174 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

16oz tallboy can with no freshness date.

Look: Cloudy pale yellow, great looking lacing on the glass

Smell: Banana taffy, powdered clove, chalky yeast, apple skin, bready, faint bandaid

Taste: Big crispness, very smooth, clove, plantains, spice, banana pith, doughy malt, mild bubblegum, light hopping, grainy finish, ends nearly all the way dry

Hits all of the bells and whistles and then some, perhaps not as mellow as some but none of its attributes are more than any other. Seek it out if you are into wheat beers. (522 characters)

Tall boy 16 oz. can, w/o freshness or canning date info.(there is something printed on the bottom of the can, but it is unintelligible)

Pours heavily hazed, lighter tangerine with a lemony hue. Fluffy and lasting one inch cap. Leaves ample and staying ringed strands of lace.

Bananas, wheat malts and light sugar on the nose.

On the palate its more of the same, mostly mild notes of bananas and sweet malts.

Decent Hefe and in a can to boot....worth a try (461 characters)

Had on tap at the brewery

Appearance: 1/4 inch frothy head, moderate carbonation, bright yellow in color, hazy

Smell: banana and clove

Taste: wheat, clove, orange, and banana

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a slightly bitter middle and a sweeter end, medium carbonation and bodied

Overall: Two Roads has wowed me so far by putting an extra and surprising element into their beers. This I feel is very solid, true to style, but does not have that wow factor that their other beers have had. I like it, but there are other hefs that I like more. (544 characters)

Wanting to try another local beer. This one did catch my attention since it was a Hefeweizen, so I was looking for the typical spices, the wheat and the overall taste.
Not a lot to say about the pour. Some what uneventful. The nose, bouquet and aroma ( they can all be the same at times) picked up the wheat and coriander marks. This one was full of coriander.
The initial taste was fine, full and soft, but on the after taste, the strong coriander flavor stayed too long.
I think I would have enjoyed this one more if there was more of a cirrus flavor. There was some lemon at the end, but it seemed to be more of a sweet, sugary lemon, than natural. (652 characters)

Pours a cloudy honey straw color with a big puffy pure white head that slowly settled into a fluffy cap. Not much lacing.

The aroma is both tart, fruity and spicy. There are some green apple and lemon notes that provide the tartness. Banana, bubble gum, and clove provide the fruit and spice. Traditional Bavarian aroma but more on the tart side.

The taste is more yeast driven. Big ripe banana flavor with subtle notes of clove and bubble gum. Not much tartness in the flavor, perhaps a slight lemon twang. Very creamy flavor.

Moderate to full feel. Creamy feel but does have some prickly carbonation to breakup the body. Sweet on the palate.

The beer is like liquid banana bread. Very banana forward hefe. Could use a touch of clove, pepper or more tartness to contrast the banana but it is quite enjoyable. (824 characters)

My favorite regular offering from Two Roads, this German-style Hefe is loaded with bubble gum, banana, and clove. The mouthfeel is creamy and silky, with a beautiful bready malt backbone that complements the yeast perfectly. One of the best American Hefes on the market. (270 characters)
