Growler from the RAM in Wheeling brought by ck1 to the Mom-without-Bill tasting. Thanks bro! Banana and clove. Fairly light but with some body. A decent representation of the style.

yngwie (13475) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body topped by a small, white head. Lots of cloves in the aroma, with decent leves of banana and bubble gum. Some generic fruityness and a little malty touch too. The flavor too has too much cloves, but the levels of malts, bubble gum and banana are nice. Medium body, perhaps a tad low on carbonation. Cloves and bubble gum finish, some fruityness too. Decent indeed, but not impressive. 130629

On tap at C.B. & Potts Collindale. Milky yellow-orange appearance, unfiltered with a small white head. The aroma and flavor is banana, citrus fruits, wheat malts, clove, coriander and herbs/spices. Light to medium body with a soft creamy feel. Pretty refreshing.

From notes. Draft at the schaumburg location. Decently sweet with a good deal of banana. Ok beer, but nothing to get excited over.

Cloudy lemon yellow with thin white lacing. Medium nose of clove; full bodied, creamy palate is heavy on banana with notes of bubblegum and clove.

Taster at the RAM, Schaumburg. Properly cloudy. A nice ’nana and ester nose which matches up with the taste. The menu here refers to "Vanguard" hops, which I don’t know what they mean in a German beer, but they don’t drag this beer off-style. Nice fizzy mouthfeel to the end.

Steve_0 (2595) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a small white head and decent lacing. Wheaty, bready, citrusy aroma- notes of banana, light bubblegum, biscuit, and straw. Taste is sweet banana, and clove upfront, leading to a well-round body - very wheaty, bready, straw - and ending with a touch of bubblegum and decent spice on the backend. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Damn decent Hefe, that kind-of surprised me.

Tap. Pours hazy, pale yellow with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is banana, cloves, cereal malt, lemon, and light orange peel. Flavor is bland, bready malts, banana, herbs, and light grassy hops; dry finish. Light body and low carbonation.

On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a hazy yellow with virtually no head at all, the aroma has a little bit of spices and banana but not a whole lot, the flavor has a decent amount of fruit on the front end with banana flavors in the finish, decent mouthfeel, one of the better choices here so far.
