Poured into a hefe weizen glass.

Appearance. Cloudy copper in color. Pours with 3 fingers of dense bone white head. This slowly dissipates leaving clumps of lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell. Spicy, this one leans more toward the cove side of the hefe spectrum. At the same time, though there is a definitive banana character in the background. All together it is reminiscent of banana bread.

Taste. Starts out sweet on the palate, like a banana creme pie or a banana milkshake. Some tartness cuts this and lingers for a while before a more spicy and nutty middle palate. The banana returns to compliment the spicy clove and walnut notes. This slowly transitions into a finish with a slight lingering tartness.

Mouthfeel. Overall it is creamy, but broken up a bit by aggressive carbonation.

A lot of complexity in the flavor of this one. It really gets the full range of the hefe weizen flavor profile. Love the color too.

Pours a cloudy light amber with a huge foam head. Some lace.

Clove and banana, but not a sweet aroma. Some wheat and yeast.

A very different here, as the sweetness you expect is not there. This dries out fast, with toasted wheat dominating. SOme spice and yeast and mild bitterness throughout. Not quite as refreshing as other versions of the style.

Lighter bodied, well carbonated.

A very good brew, and a bit of a surprise. Probably much better with food than others, a little harsher version to drink on its own. Worth trying for sure.

Poured a massive head that took awhile to calm down. Good head retention and lacing. This beer is darker than expected, a coppery-amber with a fair bit of haze.

The nose here is quite fragrant and fresh. Some light banana and honey. Quite creamy with no bitterness.

The taste is soft, with a more creamy malt feel. A bit of banana and some slightly sour phenol flavour. Some fruitiness with a hint of citrus. Not much carbonation present. The finish is quite mild and pleasant, fresh and just slightly dry.

The feel is quite creamy, but with a slight sour edge.

This is a pretty solid Hefe, the sourness is throwing me a little bit, but this is refreshing and quite flavourful. It isn't overly aggressive and is very drinkable. Worth a try, quite pleasant.

Pours darker than usual. Ranges from sort of a golden color at the bottom to a dark orange/amber at the top of the Weizen glass.
Banana, clove, wheat and a little spice character are all present in the nose and tongue.
Has a medium body and is quite prickly on the tongue with carbonation.

One of the best from a brewery that only does weizens. Dark for a hefeweizen, but full bodied. Flavor is like a nice farmer’s loaf of dark bread. This one’s a real treat.
