A good example of the style, my sample (bomber) was cloudy and had enough colour to it to suggest the presence of a little dark munich or crystal malt. He nose had the expected and desired banana and clove characters indicating that a true bavarian yeast was used. Mouth feel was appropriate, bready yet refreshing with a nice malt balance. Eminantly drinkable, easily passes the four pint test and one I will come back to. Great summer beer - would pair well with grilled fish, seafood and salads. Prost!

Bottle from Scott - thanks! Clear, slightly glowing yellow pour with some haze and a large and frothy white head. Aroma is banana, clove, clean wheat, and a bit of underlying spice. Taste is clean banana/clove up front followed by light wheat and some spice (pepper? no. something else) into the finish. Light and spritzy mouthfeel. Nice hefe.

Better than average hefe. Typical hefe, but less watery. Has hints of banana, spices, and, of course, wheat. Tried at the brewery on my way to New Mexico.

22oz bottle: poured a hazy banana yellow with a little white head and moderately streaming carbonation. Mild yeasty aroma and banana esters. Nice aroma. Mild banana notes with a bit of cloves in the flavor. Slightly watery finish. Decent.

Hazed yellow pour with fluffy white head and lace. Clove, banana, and paper aroma. Banana and clove dominate the flavor. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent beer for the style.

Redpointed (69) - Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Looks quite nice, pours with a good head. Aroma is pungent for a hefeweizen, quite a bit of character. Taste is very pleasant, with some yeast adding a citrus tang. Quite a long finish also.

honcho (2) - indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2011 does not count
Aroma- Huge banana maltiness dominates. It just has this very nice balanced aroma reminiscent of banana bread. Appearance- Nice light gold color with translucent like cloudiness once the yeast was roused from the bottle. Great lacing on the pint glass as the beer was consumed. Taste- Balanced and very similar to the aroma. Bready malty banana goodness with just barely enough hops to balance. Palate- Very easy-drinking and refreshing. As it warms up, more bready banana comes out. Overall- Excellent example of the style. Great balance of banana esters and maltiness with just barely enough hops to give balance. Great beer for doing anything in the summer.

Dogbrick (8688) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head that fizzes away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat, citrus and malt. Light, clean body with flavors of mildly zesty oranges, wheat, doughy malt and a touch of spice. The finish is short and fruity. Slightly above average overall.
