Hay, some banana, cloudy, golden straw, dissipating head, poor lacing with good carbonation, slightly sweet with some wheat tang, a bit of clove spice, refreshing, thin, a decent beer on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours mildly cloudy with a 1 finger soapy white head, lacework is ok. The aroma is banana esters, clove, wheat, all the trademark aromas for the style. The taste is very strong on the banana, wow, it tastes like a piece of banana taffy, very interesting. The body is full, carbonation is medium. Overall I was impressed with this one, that flavor is very drinkable and unique. Half way through the glass I started detecting sour notes in the taste, so the taste drops from an 8 to a 7, the overall drops from a 16 to a 13, this beer did not finish well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an impressive white head that shows excellent retention. Wheaty, slightly lemony aroma, but no real spiciness for me. Palate delivers the same-- more of an American style wheat than German. Slightly tart finish. Just okay.

On tap. Pours golden with bubbles and a beige head. aromas of candy sugar and some clove, not too much banana. Not too hefe-y, which I like. Creamy palate with a bit of banana and clove.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice and cloudy, tall sparse white head. Little banana/clove thing going on, not as intense as imports, but respectable. Nearly spot on, clean, fruity, lots of banana, almost seems turned though. Still on the edge of good and I enjoyed it.
