3.95/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured out a cloudy, orange color with a three-finger, off-white head of pillowy, fluffy foam. It left sticky sheets of intricate lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of clove and some banana. A touch of cracked wheat, too.

T - It tasted of sweet wheat, spices, clove and some banana. A good bittersweet blend of flavors.

M - It was crisp,sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty hefeweizen. Glad I found this one.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours slightly hazy orange, lots of light, off-white foam. Weirdly soapy aroma; orange in the flavor plus a touch of spice. (The orange taste notes make me think the soapiness in the aroma was a citrus note that just got weird). Mouthfeel of a much lighter beer- crisp and cool, refreshing.

3.91/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Has a darker murky orange color with decent 2 finger head. A little formidable looking for a Hefe

Smell - Very bready with a tingle of banana. Actually its very nice and not too sweet.

Taste - It's very well balance and smooth going down. Flavors are bready, malty mostly and a tinge of sweetness. A little crisp in the finish but very faint.

Mouthfeel - very full bodied and buttery for a light 5.3% brew.

Overall - This is a respectable and very German tasting Hefeweizen. Flavoring is a tad lackluster to me but overall this is a pleasant and sessionable German beer to go to on occasion. There are better offerings of the style out there but this one is worth a try.

3.68/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: 500 ml bottle. There are notches on the side of the back label but no freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a half-liter weizen glass. The color is deep orange with an amber tint. Three fingers of dense, white head dissipated slowly to leave an even skim.

Smell: Classic and quintessential. Lots of fruit sweetness tinged with spice. Apple, banana, orange, lemon zest, and a hint of strawberry- or watermelon-flavored bubblegum. Clove and pepper offer an adequate amount of spice.

Taste: Heavy, smooth, and wheaty mouthfeel. The flavors are somewhat muted and intermixed, but they mostly mirror the aromas: apple sweetness, a hint of banana, orange, lemon zest, clove and pepper spice.

Drinkability: Decent hefeweizen. I would prefer a little more taste but it is drinkable and refreshing.

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

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy light brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of bananas and yeast. Taste is refreshing, some banana, mild spices, easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this makes for a quality beer.

Out of a swing-top bottle and into my glass!

From the bottle: "Gebraut nach dem original bayerischen Reinheitsgebot (Brewed according to the German Purity Law)"; "Im ursprung das original (In the original, the original)".

My pour netted a huge, thick two fingers of tawny head that resembled the top of an ice cream soda. Color was a hazy deep amber. Nose was muted, more clove spicy than anything else. Mouthfeel was medium to full with a big banana taste on the tongue. Finish remained strong with banana esters, but I did catch some clove on the extreme finish. Frankly, that is exactly the taste/flavor profile that I generally eschew in the style. I prefer a more clove-forward hefeweizen. It was not the worst, but neither was it the best, either.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ

A: A great looking pour on this one. Cloudy golden orange with two fingers of white head that stick to the glass.

S: Doesn't have the best aroma for a German brewed Hefeweizen. A definite lemony tartness to it, but there is a good enough wheat and bread sweetness. A mild clove spiciness and some hints of orange are there also.

T: A significant improvement on the flavor. Sweet and bready with plenty of wheat. There's an oddly tropical flavor to the beer with some fruit notes to it and even a bit of coconut.

M: Medium in body with a lively carbonation.

O: Good in the flavor, which I suppose is what's important, but the nose could use some work.

Serving type: on-tap

A - Medium hazy straw with short white head and mild lacing.

S - Yeast, lemon and mild banana. Fades quickly.

mild hop bitterness. Light, crisp and well-balanced.

M - Light body and medium carbonation.

D - Very easy drinkin' brew.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a medium white head, solid head retention with good lace.

S: Banana, some bubblegum with citrus. Fragrant and pleasing.

T: The phenol/yeast character is not as overt in the flavour as it is in the smell. Lots of lemon and orange, secondary banana, good flavours but lacking in complexity for me in this style.

M: Light-bodied, the carbonation is a little much, spritzy, just OK.

D: Not a bad hefe, it has it's good points, but not a beer I'd go back to when there's a wealth of this style at good price points.

3.6/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500 ml flip top.

It pours a hazy orange-gold with a large but quickly dissipating and watery white head.

This one has a huge banana scent, almost pure banana with a hint of spiciness. For the most part though it is ripened banana.

The flavor follows suit, banana, and more banana, with a hint of spice and also some lemon and malt.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated but not overly. It is highly quaffable though sweeter than most Hefeweizens.

Overall a solid Bavarian Hefe.

Flip top bottle into bicentennial Mason jar.

A: Huge 4 finger head atop slightly hazy copper body. Lacing here and there. Head retention is okay.

S: Spicy mild lemon-pepper. Hints of banana and a bit of pink bubblegum.

T: All the goodness of a good hefewiezen, but toned down terribly. Green pepper and wheatiness on the get go. Bits of banana and clove but very slight bits. A very mild brew. Refreshing, but I'm left just wanting more wheaty goodness.

M: Nice almost creamy medium body nice carbonation.

D: A spicy dry brew that could use a good dose of banana bubblegum, but very drinkable nonetheless.
