2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

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.
