Slightly sweet with banana flavors profile - September 27, 2013
Was really hoping it would taste like what I had in Bavaria. Sorry to say it did not. Too much sweet and too much banana/clove. Not smooth enough.

Fruitiness - Banana. Very smooth. The spice of clove is quite palatable. Excellent with or without an orange slice.

Banana and cloves are prevalent. Lighter flavor. Would be good on a hot day. Hefs are growing on me in general profile - March 25, 2013
Best hefeweizen out of the bottle in my humble opinion.

Had high hopes for this one. Aroma is ok. Started out nice bit became really bitey at the end. Not a very good Hefe

Run of the mill Bavarian Hef. I wish I were more impressed, but it lacked a zing that you find in other hefs. As much as I bitch about over-cloved hefs, I found myself longing for clove in this brew. The one thing that makes it different is the claim of bubble gum hints. That came through more clearly than I have experienced with other hefs. Aftertaste is more banana than the body, which was odd because I am used clove aftertaste. Still, cheaper and more easily available than better brews. Bottle.

This beer tasted awful, it might have been a bad batch

Unmistakably Hefewiezen and yet not as refreshing as a true Bavarian.

Not a bad hefeweizen, especially one made in the US. A little bit of that banana flavor. It is a little bitter in the aftertaste.
