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...

somewhat fruity wheat with a very generic feel to it, wouldnt recommened it, but it did have a nice head, a bit over-carbed

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2004
On tap in Broomfield, CO and bottled from Ft. Collins. Both versions of this one were fairly good quality. Very nice sweet banana aroma with some floral notes. Body is a thick golden haze with generous head and lacing. Taste is refreshing, crisp, citrus. Nice summer beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Actually fairly decent for an american made hefe. Pours a light cloudy yellow color with a small white head. The brew had some good spicy in the aroma with a hint of lemon. The spice came through well in the taste with a good wheaty flavor and a bit of lemon.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Another weak brew from Big Horn. There just isn’t a whole lot going on here, but it was a little bit better than the blonde. Not much wheat taste or aroma - banana or otherwise.

thedm (5063) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 4, 2004
This draft brew at the brewery in Indianapolis poured a small head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lace. The body was a hazy yellow-white color and it had a banana wheat yeast aroma that was very nice. The mouth feel was smooth tingly and fruity with a banana malt flavor. This was very nice for a Hefe-Weizen made in the USA very true to the style and very good.

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2004
On tap at the Ram in downtown Indianapolis. This beer formed a small sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles. The body was cloudy with a straw yellow hue. The nose was spicy, clove and banana. The flavor was clove and banana with a smooth mouthfeel. This beer was light-medium bodied with fair lacing.
