COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Bavarian wheat beer combines the flavors of banana, clove, bubblegum and citrus in a wonderfully refreshing summertime ale. No spices or fruits are actually used to create this beer, only barley malt, wheat malt Hallertau hops and a funky wheat beer yeast from the world's oldest brewery.

Draught, 5% at the brewpub. Weak banana aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweet with some clean banana. Hint of spices. OK sweetness. Good bitterness for the style.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Very bright banana/apricot aroma. A little bit of melon and a touch of light lemon as well. Creamy palate. Despite the bright aroma, the flavour seems a little bit muted. A touch of clove but this is also quite dim. Finishes quite watery. Meh.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Properly cloudy yellow color, and juice-like in appearance with a white head, moderate thick lacing on the glass. Very punchy, spicy, doughy yeast scented, with pulp-like orange and lemon scents. Chewy and sweet on the tongue, juicy, a bit too much for me even, like a heavy pulp fruit juice (with respect to texture). Lacks dryness and a little sourness, but otherwise it’s tasty and well-made. Frothy up front, then a bit oily on the palate, then finishes prickly and spicy.

On tap at Bullfrog. Pours a very hazy gold with a small to medium sized white head. Banana, wheat and musk. Crisp yeast and wheat. Light esters. Crisp and light with some spicy yeast. Nice stuff.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap July 2008: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of sweet malted wheat and some banana esters with good German yeastiness. Body starts fairly full with good sweetness and some authentic clove spice and a drier more bitter biscuity finish. Pretty drinkable and true to style.

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Draft. Pours hazy gold with an off white head. The aroma is fruity, both banana and lemon, some spice. The flavor is fruity sweet and has a bit more spice than the aroma.

Poured a cloudy, orange-gold color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, vanilla, clove and yeast. Taste of more bananas and cloves, wheat, and some tart citrus qualities as well.
