12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color and is topped with an inch of off white head that leaves no lacing.

It has a spicy nose. I get banana and clove.

It has a banana and clove taste and a clean finish.

Moderate to thin mouthfeel

This is a solid American version of a hefe. It doesn't stand up to the great German ones though.

Poured from a bottle into a wheat beer glass. Pours golden yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Smells of banana and wheat. Tastes of banana and wheat, very nicely balanced. Beer is light bodied, very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle. Murky yellow body with a bubbly white head. Huge hefe yeast aroma with banana, bubble gum, and clove with faint citrus. Fruity flavor (maybe overly fruity) with notes of lemon zest, biscuity malt, and yeast esters creating clove, banana, and bubble gum. Effervescent light-to-medium body, finishing with some lemon zest lingering. Not a bad hefeweizen. The aroma is the best thing about it, but its flavors falls short in comparison to its German counterparts in my opinion.

3.92/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours cloudy and goldenstraw colored, with a tall but fizzy head; nice retention and a few clumps of lacing linger

Smell: Spicy clove/nutmeg and tangy wheat tones more prominent than the banana here

Taste: Tangy wheat dominates the front, with the spicy clove tones developing; just a hint of banana peaks through, in the middle; caramel sweetness intermingles with the banana, after the swallow, though the wheat and spice remain prominenet

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with buoyant carbonation (a bit too bubbly); lacks a creamy character

Overall: An unusual take on the hefe style; mouthfeel issues aside, it is rather enjoyable

Thanks, Virby44, for the opportunity

Pours a huge head, easily over two fingers even with a controlled pour, brilliant bone white, while very airy and whipped up keeps a nicely even surface, the lacing very large splotches with just below average stickiness. Mild haze to the pure gold colored liquid, randomly scattered large bubbles, no tight beads. The nose leaps forth from the glass with bubblegum, banana, clove and a solid amount of apricot, pear to apple fruit scents, as it warms there’s additional pepper, more pronounced wheat as well as mineral water notes. Medium-bodied, fairly dry and stern even as the carbonation has it frothing across the palate. The dryness prevents a round mouth feel from really filling it up though. The flavors come close to exactly replicating the nose with strong emphasis on bubblegum, clove and banana. More mixed orange to grapefruit citrus and more yeasty than wheat-driven. The apple, pear, apricot, peach fruit pairs up with golden raisin and fig, this without any real sugariness accruing. Unavoidable retronasal perfume fills the mouth after swallowing. The flavors more simple than intense which appears to be the intent behind this beer in the name of higher drinkability.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Hazy yellow-gold body, fat large bubble white head, lots of bubble, and definite ropy lacing.

S - Strong yeast nose, banana and bubble gum.

T - Huge explosion of bubble sugar and banana flesh, sweet and lush, followed by a subtler grain sourness, that trails off with lingering fruit.

M - Prickly carbonation with a sharp acidity in the trail.

O - Oh my this is so good. Rich fruit, tart close, so drinkable. One of the better American Hefeweizens, for certain. Delicious.

A 12 fl oz bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Reidel weizen glass.

Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow with a nice big two finger fluffy white head that had excellent retention and left lots of lacing.

Aroma: Nice strong clove, banana, bubblegum and wheat.

Taste: Much like the aroma, wheat, clove, banana and bubblegum flavours that combine well.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with high to moderate carbonation.

Overall: This was so tasty. It’s been a while since my last Hefeweizen and drinking Bubbler just makes me want to go out and buy more Hefe’s.
