On tap at the Hilton Hotel in Parsippany. Pours a hazy, cloudy pour with moderate frothing. Pungent aroma replete with wheat, lemon, and hay. Acidic flavor. Not a great depiction of the style.

On-tap @ The Hilton hotel bar in Parsippany, NJ.

Served in a pint glass, it's a cloudy, bright gold color with a small creamy white head. Prominent banana and spicy clove in the aroma. The flavors of a typical hefeweizen are there but they're amped up quite a bit. The softness you would find in a Bavarian hefeweizen is replaced with a heavier, thicker, more full bodied feel. No sign of the higher ABV whatsoever. Sits comfortably between a standard hefeweizen and a pale weizenbock. Delicious!

I had this on draught in a bar. It was poured into a pint glass. It pours a cloudy golden-honey color with a thin, milk-white head and minimal lacing. It smells of banana, lemon peel, cloves, wheat, and yeast. It's a very fragrant beer. This is a tasty hefe with lots of banana, clove, wheat, and some other spicy funk. It's a light, refreshing beer, pleasantly carbonated, and with a a moderate ABV of 6.7% it is easy to drink. This is one of the best American-brewed Hefeweizens I've had. It's well-crafted and fun to drink.

8/29...on tap. Pours murky dirty gold. No foam, and the top is very still. Bubblegum nose. Soft wheat flavor, subtle and refined. Clove-y. Nicely made, simple.
