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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap at the Humperdinks on Northwest Highway in Dallas.
The beer pours a very hazy, light creamy-yellow with a white head. About what you would expect from a beer of this style. The aroma is bananas and cloves, with the bananas being prominent. The flavor is more of the same with wheat and some other citrus mixed in as well. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Decent, but nothing spectacular.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy straw tinge with light head and lacing. Aroma is delicate with lots of banana/clove esters and lots of yeast & bubblegum. Clean, watery mouthfeel and a light citrus zest bit. A session wheat for sure, must be drank delicately to really savor the flavors here.
