Sampled from the tap at the Mundelin beer fest. Pours a cloudy slightly pale gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma is slightly perfumey with a good amount of clove and backing sweet grains and banana. The flavor has a good amount of sweet grains up front with the clove and banana coming out in the finish.

Draft at the Tacoma Waterfront location. Cloudy lemony yellow. Very patchy lace. No head, little carb. Cloying banana sweet nose, smells almost synthetic. Creamy flat, medium body. Banana, sharp clove, and some sour orange on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2003 RERATE: The Indy version is much better, more hefe in nature, more citrus and crisp more complex taste than previous entry. The new rating reflects the increase in quality...In tap at Humperdinks in Arlington, Texas. A light cloudy appearance. The nose had an banana and malty aroma but not much spices. Sweet but works well with Tex-Mex foods. Drank 3 this last trip. The best of the Big Horn brews.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight grass, clove, banana, hints of bubblegum, touch of biscuit, bread, slight more spice and yeasty notes, fairly clean overall. Taste is a mix of slight bubblegum, clove, hints of biscuit and bread, slight spice, finishing yeasty, slightly sweet, dry.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Musky yellow-orange with a good banana aroma. Smooth banana-creme flavors. This isn't as active or carbonated as a classic hefeweizen, but this is an OK version for the suburbanites.
