Hazy darker yellow -- chill hazed in the glass...head is nice and pillowy and starts at 1/2 an inch and laces decently. Fruity aroma, a little astringency, with notes of spiced pear and cloves. A little too lemony for my tastes but theres also a lot of bready and yeasty qualities here with a spicy finish. Esters are not whopping banana. Pepper at the close. A pretty nice Wheat, with good mouthfeel, and even though Hefes will never be favorites of mine, this was a pretty good one in most aspects aside from slight sourness. (527 characters)

Cloudy, hazy yellow color, nice light fluffy foamy head, leaves I nice lace in my glass, aroma of banannas, bubblegum-banana flavor, light body and very drinkable not bad for the style. (185 characters)

The beer pours a beautiful "Chill Hazed" yellow-orange color, the off white head is prodigious, the lace lies in bulky sheets upon the glass. Nose is fruit sweet as in a ripe pineapple, maybe even over ripe peach? Begins malt sweet, the top thickset, the finish has a nice understated hop presence, pleasantly carbonated, droughty aftertaste, a quite quaffable beer. (366 characters)

Milky pale orange with a smallish white head. Fades to an edging but leaves inticate lacing.
Beautiful nose full of clove and vanilla. Banana is pushed to the background. Peppery and wonderful.
The same can be said of the taste. Heavy on the clove/vanilla/pepper spices. Lighter on the banana tones. Yeasty dough flavors are present and welcome as they provide support. Lingering herbals towards the finish, with more delectable vanilla.
A soild medium bodied brew. Carbonation is on the low end, but somewhat prickly. Fairly creamy. Delighful.
Right near the top of my favorite hefeweizens. (605 characters)

Great nose on this one....heavy cloves but also some faint vanilla...not catching much bannana...the taste is not as good as the smell in my opinion as the cloves dominate and imbed a spicy moutfeel....not as sweet as I expected...a tinge of sourness on the taste as well....not a bad Hefe but not as good as a couple others I have tasted recently... (350 characters)

The beer puors a hazy golden with great orange tinting apparant. The head is not very big and gone quickly. The lacing qualitly is still pretty good though. Great smell of vanilla, banana and slight clove/nutmeg. (The vanilla is the dominant aroma.) Really nice tasting weizen. The vanilla is a little more subdued on the tongue, as opposed to the nose. What I like the most are the spicy pepper accents and the sweet quality, which borders almost on being cloying, but is not. Mouthfeel is about medium maybe "medium-full." Just a tad syrupy. Easy drinking however. Nicely done Weizen.

I'm starting to take note of what these two brothers are doing down there in IL. Pretty good stuff (except for the Iditorod Imperial Stout). (747 characters)
