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 (5570) - 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...

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