This brew pours a rather clear golden wheat color with little yeast I can see and moderate carbonation compared too many hefes in my experience. The head is lacking compared to the last one of these I drank. To the smell...this is a properly spiced and somewhat fruity Weiss. The balanced smells on even if the banana character is a bit strong.

Glug glug glug

Ok first off... big banana and fruit flavors, underplayed by the spices which are balanced and supportive of the overall flavor. The overall effect is that this is a crisp and tasty wheat beer that's not over or underwhelming at all. I could ask for a bit more, but this beer is fine for the style and serves as a good representation of wheat beers.

On-tap at the Grey Lodge Pub - Philadelphia, PA

The beer appeared to be a slightly opaque straw yellow with a thin white head, foamy and a surprisingly well retained. The beer had a very nice aroma, banana and cloves, just what one would expect from a Hefe. The taste was very good. Followed the nose perfectly. The beer had a lighter feel to it with good carbonation. The beer was very refreshing, crisp and very enjoyable to drink. Overall, this is a good beer and one that I would drink again.

Thanks to Dim for this fantastic extra
Bottle poured into a Wiezen glass produced two fingers worth of white that that doesn't last to long, on top of a hazy almost grapefruit juice colored body.

Great bananas and bubble gum aromas of the yeast cloves and wheat come thru as well

Tastes sweet and wheaty with a light spice bitter finish in your mouth. Very light in the mouthfeel tons of carbonation for your tongue

Good drinkability on this brew great representation of the style

Wow, gotta say, this is a great American made hefeweizen! Very similar to hacker-pschorr, which is a classic. Not much lacing, great smell, of pears (maybe?) and definite banana. Tastes of raw banana and wheat, and cloves. Very nice! A bin of a thin mouth feel, yet true to style, very crisp and tasty, and you can drink 50 of these in a sitting. Recommended highly!

With a swirl of the bottle to rouse the yeast, Stoudt's Heifer-in-Wheat pours the traditional cloudy golden orange body of a Bavarian hefeweizen. Surprisingly, the head drops fairly readily, and it leaves little lacing behind on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and distinctly wheaty, threaded through with notes of soft clove.

In the mouth it's medium-bodied with a dextrinous edge, and soft and smooth with a very fine-bubbled, seemingly natural carbonation that lightly tickles the tongue.

The flavor is as the nose suggests with a very flavorful and sweet wheaty malt base. The yeast lends soft clove, a hint of vanilla, and some mild smokey and plastic phenols. Hops are barely found, but what's there is grassy and floral. The bitterness is kept to a minimum, and it's definitely on the sweet side.

A good representation of the style. Quite drinkable.

12oz bottle with best by 10/20/11 printed on bottle, poured into Hair of the Dog tulip, reviewed on 6/25/11.

A: Pours a cloudy golden straw color with white head. Lots of visible cloudy and wispy yeast floating around.

S: Lots of yeast with some wheat and cloves as well as hints of banana.

T: Sweet pale malts and wheat with the typical banana and clove of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. The banana really comes through in the finish and lingers around for a while.

M: Definitely creamier than your typical hefe but in a good way. Medium body with medium-light carbonation and a dry finish.

O: Solid hefeweizen, nothing extraordinary but the flavor and mouthfeel are great. Really refreshing on a hot summer day.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of lace left behind.

Zesty spice aroma with some pepper, coriander and clove along with bready yeast, light fruit and citrus.  There's also a subtle banana character but the citrus/lemon and spice notes are most prominent.

Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a really nice balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, light fruit and crisp citrus.  Heavily spiced with strong clove and pepper flavor that's nicely complimented by citrus juice and lemon zest.  Slightly tart with some banana and bread notes toward the finish.  Well balanced, really refreshing and easy to drink.

A- Hazy straw yellow body. Pours with a tiny fizzy white head that disappears quickly. No lacing is left behind in the glass. When held up to the light bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Cloudiness is medium and denser in some spots.

S- Banana mixes with clove and peppery spice well. Peppery spice is slightly dominant over the banana for the scent. A sweet, bready yeast can be detected in the background.

T-Some banana and citrus upfront with a mild sweet yeast backbone. A citrus/funky yeast sourness comes in for the finish as the other flavors fade. Clove and some of the sourness linger long after the swallow.

M-Medium to high carbonation and light body. Yeast can be felt but not enough to make the entire body smooth.

D- This is a nice hefe that Stoudt's has released. It's very drinkable and not over the top with any flavors. If I see this again I may pick it up.

A: half finger head with nice lacing on a murky pale golden body.

S: clove, vanilla, pineapple/banana citrus and wheat.

T: clove, lemon custard, wheat, slight musty grains and peppery zest.

M: light body and very high carbonation, definitely too much. crisp.

12oz bottle

A- Pours a hazy golden orange with an off-white head that quickly disappears.

T- The taste like the aroma features some sweet malt with banana, cloves and yeast.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

D- Overall, not a bad Hefeweizen and is definitely one that I enjoyed.
