Cloudy yellow, big fluffy white head. Very, y’know, wheaty smelling. Lots of banana, some bubble gum in he background. Flavor is pretty much what the aroma advertises. Nicely fruity, nicely sweet. Good stuff. Thanks to curtis for bringing this one!

Bottle from the brewery. Pours large thick head on yellow body. Bannana in nose, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel, carbonation right there. Finishes bitter bannana, drinkable. Alcohol burn after a half pint though.Decent beer but so-so hefe.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is cloudy light yellow (with a hint of green).
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread), with notes of banana and lemon, hint of clove.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Starts out with a sickly greenish-tinted pale yellow color with very little head. Basic aroma for the style. Weird sugary sweetness in the mouth with a slightly off aftertaste. Very disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Tap @ brewpub. Very hazy yellow appearance with a tinge of orange. Medium sized white head. Fairly strong banana, yeast, and wheat nose. Big banana wheat flavor reminiscent of a Southern Bavarian Hefeweizen but a little duller and a little less spicy. Good but not great.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draught) cloudy light yellow with a ring/film of white bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum, clove, cooked greens. Pretty traditional. Taste of over-ripe banana, stale wheat, very watery, not a great hefeweizen.

Banana and bubblegum aroma, golden, cloudy appearance with white foam head. Banana flavor with a hint of clove. I’m not usually a fan of wheat beers, but I would drink this again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 On tap at the brewery’s taproom on 11/19/10. The chalkboard claimed this beer has a 4.3% ABV with 12 IBU’s. Absolutely hazy pale pale yellow pour, with a small yet persistent white head. Smells of banana flavored bubblegum, sweet wheat and bread dough. Maybe some orange rind as well. Taste is heavy on the wheat with orange citrus backing up. Some light banana tones bring up the rear, and ends sweetly. A tasty brew!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at The Rackhouse - a seriously over sweet and extremely clove heavy hefe, both in the nose and the flavor - some overripe banana is pretty heavy in the nose as well - flavor is heavy on sugars and clove, with a wee bit of yeast and herbs (sage) - kind of hard to drink.
