look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cloudy yellow body with moderate head and lacing. Aroma has very little going with just hints of yeast/wheat twang and a little bit of bitter citric notes. The bitter citric/orange flavor in the beer overpowers everything and there is very little fruit sweetness, very little yeast to keep things smooth as at times the beer is just a bitter mess and very little spices to perk up the beer.

3.38/5  rDev -4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a clear honey color with a modest head; not much lacing

Smell: Banana and clove, with hints of lemon and coriander

Taste: Tart wheat flavors, up front, with hints of lemon, banana and clove; lemon and coriander pull through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not up to the standards of the other Olde Hickory beers, this beer lacks the mouthfeel, carbonation and banana dominance of the great hefes

Serving type: growler

3.58/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some brassy highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy (almost soda-like) head that fairly quickly reduces to absolutely no head whatsoever. No lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of banana with some lighter hints of clove. Minimal aromas of wheat are present as well.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat that is followed by much stronger flavors of banana (one of the most banana tasting hefeweizens I have ever tried). There is a light hint of clove towards the finish but overall the beer is slightly sweet.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly effervescent carbonation (like in a champagne).

O: I was a little disappointed in the appearance of this beer - I was expecting something more slightly orangish in color, cloudy, and with the huge head that I expect for the style. The mouthfeel was interesting, a little lighter and more effervescent than others in the style but the banana flavors were quite nice. Easy to drink and easy to enjoy.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of bananas are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of flavors of bananas from the yeast along with notes of wheat and hints of clove.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This hefeweizen has lots of nice banana flavors and is a good representation of the style.

well its 100+ outside, so a hefe is in order.

Cloudy white body, but no head at all. Even with an aggressive pour, I get a thin ring. So sad.

Wheat twang comes to mind on the nose, but some banana and clove accent. I want more yeast esters, not accent flavors.

Very spicy wheat twang upfront, but I get a lot of banana in the middle. I think the spicy wheat twang hides all of the clove flavors, but they do come out. Slightly sweet, but very twangy--almost sour or tart late.

Finishes very chewy like a good hefe should. banana notes linger around, along with some spicy clove. Finishes exactly how it should. Started off a bit scary, but finishes quite nicely.

On tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh

A - hazy orangish yellow with a thick cap of pure white head that has great retention

S - coriander, lemon, banana

T - banana, lemon, straw; all of the flavors are rather subdued

M - light bodied, crisp

This is a decent, lighter beer that is perfect for these hot summer days. The flavor is light and the drinkability is high. It's not going to win over the hardcore German fans but it is worth trying.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a white head that doesn't stick around for long. Aroma is wheaty and yeasty with just a touch of citrus, typical for a hefe. Wheaty flavor has a firm yeasty note and a subtle undertone of somewhat sweet fruit - I get hints of orange, lemon and banana. Texture is fairly smooth, with above-average body and a strong fizz. Overall, an average but still pleasing hefeweizen.
