look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Came with a 2 finger light tan head that dissipated slowly. The beer is hazy orange in color.

Smells of wheat, malt, bananas and cloves.

Tastes like the smell... wheat, bananas, cloves and malts.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth, fine carbonation on the tip of the tongue. Clean, smooth finish.

Drinks very easy. A very refreshing beer on this warm summer day!!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orangey-gold into my Duvel glass with a nice foamy white head that dissipated after a few sips.

Smell: Big sweet wheat aromas with a sour background.

Taste: Huge malty-sweet wheat flavors up front with hints of banana bread in the background. Cloves and spicy hop notes round out the flavor. Excellent hefe.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with medium-to-high carbonation, but very well done. Not too thick or syrupy.

Drinkability: Delightfully refreshing, even during the Minnesota winter. Goes down easy with or without food.

I went to Town Hall to get a growler of their IPA, but found that they were out of it. I had tried the Hefe the previous night so I "settled" for a growler of that. It is a very solid, flavorful, refreshing Hefe.

Very cloudy opaque appearance. Smell is very sweet with hints of banana and vanilla. When tasted the banana becomes much more pronounced. Tasty beer. Classic hefe style and similar to other's I have had of this style. Easy to drink, fun to drink, a good all around hefe weizen.

Pours a cloudy pale orange. Wow, the banana aroma is huge. I also get orange, cotton candy and cloves. Really interesting smell. The banana comes out even more in the taste than on the nose. It is thick and sweet with mild carbonation. The sweetness lingers in the mouth and the banana flavor is carried through to the end. Very nice I think.

It's weird, I never used to like hefes but a few days ago while visiting Town Hall a friend offered me a sip from his pint glass. My tastes must have changed drastically because I ended up walking out with a growler of it.

It pours out a nice light amber yellow with little foam on top. True to its style it is very hazy. Up front you get tons of bananas with a slight bit of spice in the background. Somewhere in between there are some delicious sweet malts along with some clove. The taste is pretty much the same, but with a bigger banana flavor. It's very smooth and extremely easy to drink.
