AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Pale yellow cloudy body, thin white head, aroma is straight up bavarian style banana and clove, flavor is clove and mild banana flavors, palate is nice and full, some wheaty spritz, a very nice example of a bavarian style hefe, exactly what it should be

spittle8 (132) - California, USA - APR 13, 2016
From the bottle, San Diego. Very sweet, malty aroma. VERY malty aroma, smells almost like boiling malts. Very sweet, not much of the bite I like from a hefeweizen. Very simple beer, which is good, but it just doesn’t have the right set of characteristics that I want in a hefeweizen. It isn’t refreshing.

gunnar (7400) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2016
Can from Ales by Mail. Pours almost clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of sweet ripe banana, weak citrus and cloves and some malty toffeeish. Taste is light sweet malty and banana, weak citrus dry finish, I liked the aroma, tastewise it was too sweet for my likings.

dfinney23 (2575) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Intensely hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is more lemon than banana and clove. Actually, the taste leans that way too plus a peppery finish.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Rating #1576 - 21.03.2015 - On tap @ Venice Ale House - 1/5 beers served to me in 5oz samples on a skateboard..Pours a hazy, golden orange colour with a frothy, white head that fades fairly quickly to a foamy ring. Aroma is yeast, banana bread, and a floral whiff. Taste is very much a bready, banana flavour with a spicy/herbal note lingering into a smooth finish. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is clean and superb. Excellent.
