Consumed at brewery on 07/31/09.

Beer is a moderate cloudy yellow with a small, dense white head.

Proper hefe aromas: clove, banana, wheat, citrus.

Palate follows sinuses: powdery soft flavor with mingled banana, lemon, tangy wheat and cloves. Complex, well-balanced and somewhat light.

Properly carbonated mouthfeel.

I could drink a couple of pints of this one!

The beer is amber-orange in color with a white head. Really intense nose of coriander, clove, bubblegum, and banana. A little bit of white pepper, too. There is a decent malty sweetness as well. The flavor has a moderate malt sweetness and good banana notes. Very heavy on the clove with a decent bubblegum flavor. Some notes of citrus and phenol as well.

Wish I could find this more places. Found at Pitfire Pizza on Westwood in Los Angeles. It's the best tasting and best feeling hefeweizen I've ever had.

On tap at Wolf Creek Brewing in Valencia, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, spices, and a huge banana aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild banana flavor and a fairly strong soapy taste after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer taste wise which is disappointing because this one smells great in my opinion.

The howlin hefeweizen is the perfect example that the American craft is succeeding from its European counterparts
