3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy dark yellow / orange with a fluffy white head. The aroma has creamy wheat, some banana esters, light spices and is a bit rich. Medium / full body with lots of flowing soft carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, but is very smooth and full with smooth wheat and some cinnamon-like spice on the finish with lots of effervescence. This is very nice. It’s not as complex as some in the style, but everything that is her is solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an oddly hazy golden, expecting something darker, huge sustained rocky head... Aroma of overripe banana, clove, big floral aroma, wheat, yeast, bubblegum... Very flavorful up front, notes of banana and clove dominate, taste is of strong hefe... Almost a thin finish for the style/weight, overly drinkable, lingering banana flavors, medium bodied, Very Good, but not at the top of the list...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cL bottle, no date. Opaque goldenrod (damn you crayola), stark white foam, decent retention and great lacing. Big banana nose with some bubble gum. Flavor falls real flat, bubble gum up front that fades rapidly to... not much, a little bit of wheat grain and not much else. Palate seems really thin also. Big letdown for me, came into thinking "ZOMG I LOVE Celebrator and Brau Weisse, this is going to be AWESOME". Stupid expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into weizen and produced a large foamy head that released a lovely aroma. The aroma includes spices, grain, wheat, and some light fruits. Taste expands on those with a definite banana, bubblegum, and alcohol palate and a nice smooth finish. Not very carbonated or biting. OK weibock

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange, highy carbonated, white foamy head. Huge aroma of clove and banana, lots of wheat malt. Very sweet flavor, rich wheat, clove, and a bit of banana puree. Heavy bodied, rich and flavorful. Overall, it finishes with a forward charge of bold hefeweizen character. Lots of hefe... its and Imperial German Hefe. Awesome and rich.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bottle Barn. Pours hazy orange gold with a foamy, 4-finger white head. Very nice banana aroma, backed by a little clove. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is wheat, followed by clove, and then banana, finishing different banana impact. Really good stuff. It’s very tasty. Banana in the long haul.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy golden-tan color, lighter than I would’ve expected. Big foamy off-white head. Some wheat and banana is the aroma. The mouthfeel of this beer is awesome. Smooth, sweet malt tones. Well-defined hefe-yeast banana-clove flavor. Creamy and thick, with some light pungency underneath. Wow, this beer is excellent. World class German beer.
