The God's of Balance came down and spread their graces upon this one! A totally spot on brew for the style and perhaps the most authentic stateside "Hefe" I've had in quite a while. If they have this in the line-up do yourself a favor and grab one or two,nicely crafted flavorful brew!

First beer of the night, while eating dinner with my family. I had this clouded banana smoothie golden colored beer sitting in a tall hefe 0.5 liter glass, with a brilliant white head creamy and cloudy appearance looked delicious. Nice introduction into their lineup, fine even intricate lacing left behind, the beer has a great head retention the wheat definitely provides some protein along with all of the yeast sediment. Aroma has bubblegum, clove, and highlights the banana esters in this one, super good fruit earth light herbal quality with some powdered yeast notes. Flavor, not overly sweet balanced mix of bubblegum, citrus sharp wheat notes, clove, and banana with the yeast working it's magic giving it a ton of flavor yet keeping it very drinkable. First off you have to be able to enjoy a good hefeweizen, by the way this is a great version of it. Dead on German style, I can't tell you many better American ones out there. Mouthfeel is light to medium, effervescent sturdy carbonation flows tight, small bubbles cascade from the bottom of the glass. Overall, this beer is hard to describe, you just want to drink it, you don't want to waste time analyzing it. Delicious wheat beer, if you don't like them quit reviewing them.

Had on tap at Fat Head's. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy amber color with a nice white/foamy head on top with great retention and lacing.

S: Lots of banana and clove, with hints of bubblegum and some grassy hops.

T: The spices and bubblegum are more prominent on the flavor profile mixed in with more banana. There is a bit of citrus rind as well and some clove and pepper.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

O: A solid hefe, easy drinking with the flavors I look for in the style.

I am a big fan of Hefeweizen. I have consumed some of the world's best of this style, including consumption of this genre in Bavarian bier gardens. This is top notch and rivals the best in the world. Seek out and enjoy. Now.

On tap at the Cleveland brewpub. Not bad,but also not that drinkable, 18 ibu. Lacey. Average mouthfeel, though expect more from the style. Carbonation and temperature is correct. Easy drinker for some, not hat interesting forme. Aroma a bit strange for style.
