3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light wheat malts on the nose, big banana clove aromas, but delicate. Hazy light amber color, big frothy head. Light malty backbone balanced by the spicy flavors, no hop aroma or flavor, no real bitterness to speak of, light and crisp. Lively carbonation, light body, easy drinking, but nice subtle complexities. This beer would stand up to the better German versions any day!

Bottle with Andrew and Carla. Pours a very hazy yellow/gold with active white foam. Smells dry with hints of wheat and slightly spicy. Tastes lightly sweet with hints of wheat with plenty of banana and a bit of cloves. Feels creamy like bananas.

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.

(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.
