UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Cloudy pale color with nice head. Smells of banana, clove, and citrus. Banana and spiciness throughout. Pretty taste beer but still no match IMHO for Weihenstephaner’s hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to ambergirl for this one! Cloudy pale golden pour with a sizable white head. Just a little sediment in there. Aroma has some banana esters as well as some citrus, honey, and floral (overall very sweet). Sparkly and well-carbonated, so light on the palate. Flavor had a wheaty base that was followed by bananas and citrus. Sweet banana/honey finish. Very easy to drink and perfect for the season

Cloudy pale yellow with a generous white head. Aroma is banana, yeast and wheat. Flavor is sweet, banana, a little clove and a hint of bubble gum. A touch of lemon in the finish. Smooth watery palate. ( I’m not crazy about banana and bubble gum in beer).

Bottle. Golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet and yeasty with the obligatory wheaty pattern. Fruits and light citrus flavours balances the flavour and palate.

Have grown to love this refreshing hefe. A great foamy head and fruity spicy flavor. I bring a case back whenever i visit my mom from DC as i cannot get it where I live at all.

Nice medium head. Body is a light golden, cloudy with lots of bubbles. Aroma is lightly bitter with some citrus. Taste is fruity citrus, balanced malt sweetness. Lots of bananna esters, finish is slightly bitter and dry. Very tasty and balanced.
