Pours a slighty cloudy yellow, but needs more haze. Aroma is clove and banana. The flavor starts promising with banana and slight bubblegum, but finishes weak and flat. Thick mouthfeel. Needs more assertiveness in the finish to be better.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Cloudy orange haze. Light estery aroma with hints of fruit (orange, banana.) Nutty and sweet malts flavors, quite balanced, with banana, clove and orange flavors, along with a hint of vanilla. A pretty nice recipe for a hefe and this batch was brewed quite well.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2005
On tap Arlington, TX..... I orderd another full glass after the sample of this beer. I kinda enjoyed it. It really looked like a unibroue beer, without the big head. Very small head. I could really smell the bananas in this beer. The taste is really close to a unibroue beer without the alc and wood flavor. Decent beer.

stoutchap (416) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2005
On tap in Schuamburg, IL. Cloudy yellow appearance - typical of a hefe. Average white head. Light banana aroma with some wheat and subtle fruitiness. Nice medium mouthfeel. Aromas come out in flavor, without overpowering you with fruit or bananas. Good finish - a solid and refreshing Hefe.

Draft in Indy. Cloudy amber hue with average white head. Complex aroma and flavor of wheat, banana and clove. Medium to full body with long sweet finish.

Ratman197 (9868) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Good banana aroma, nice yellow color but not cloudy enough for the style looks more like a krystal wheat. Flavor is fair, but not enough banana and clove flavors for my taste.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 A cloudy, hazy orange drink with a sudsy off-white head, this has a strong banana aroma, complemented by grassiness, a dab of malt, and some spiciness. Very soft in the mouth, this tastes like banana, cloves, a touch of lemon, and light malts. It’s got a very clean finish and makes for a refreshing drink.

Always a pleasure to buy a growler to take home. This is good stuff, probably because I always have on draft. It has hints of banana and vanilla, very refreshing and easy going.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Cloudy yellow with thin white head...smelled just as you’d expect, bananas and cloves...tasted sweet with bananas, like a banana split with diet ice cream with artificial sweetner...not bad, but a fantastic example as to why I don’t like most Hefes...
