COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a brass opalescent blond coloured beer. It is topped by a thick compact foam which sticks to the glass and is sustained by a strong effervescence. Its fragrance is one of cloves with a hint of bananas, all of which is wrapped in an aroma of warm baked bread. Its a light tasting and fruity beer with only a mild flavour of hops. It is a very smooth tasting beer with a touch of acidity.

Hazy gold honey color, with a shy white head, yeasty, wheat, banana-like, with an orange note also in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty mellow wheat flavor, with a fruity banana note, leading towards a wheaten finish.

Very hazy yellow, only slight ring around the glass. Smell and taste is very yeasty and banana. Noticable citrus taste as well. A pretty decent Hefe in my book.

Shining gold pour with a light veil. Head is white, 1-inch tall, frothy. Stronger than average aroma. If they did can bananas, I assume it would smell a bit like this. It comes out slightly lactic with cinnamon and cloves afterthoughts. Sweet banana/mango palate with an honest bitter kick. Plenty of mouthfeel, an effervescent lemon pie. Pretty good for the style I found.

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
Hazy golden body topped with a large frothy head. Decent malty aroma with some spicy hints. Taste is well-balanced but lacks some complexity. Finish is fairly bitter, but is too short. The beer is OK, but there are plenty of better Hefeweizen.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Pint at DDC in the company of tiggmtl. Bright, opaque luminous gold with a large but fast-decaying head...super-banana-rum-cream concoction of a nose, perhaps too sweet with little spice but splendid anyway. Bananas & cream on the tongue, just a bit of citric tartness late. Fairly simple and quite sweet, but very pleasant and eminently drinkable. Mmmm.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Draft at the brewpub. Cloudy golden ale, funky yeasty aroma. Thick rich taste of overripe banana. Easy on the clove and spice notes. Awesome.

Pours a hazy blonde color with a thin qhite head. Aroma and flavor of wheat, bananas, meringue and spices. Medium body, medium oxydation, creamy texture.

Full spice and wheat aromas, hazy white/yellow, little creamy head. Spices and wheat are pronounced and appreciated. Light bodied, smooth, a very good example.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Wheat, clean spicy aroma mixed with orange peel and ripe sweet banana. Cloudy gold wheat beer, small creamy head. This beer got creamy smooth body. Banana at front and bitter finish. Interesting concept. Such bitterness made this beer les clean and drinkable.
