COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Get ready to cheat fate with a foreboding potion of wheat and barley malt temptation. Pure and unfiltered, the first taste forewarns the unsuspecting of spicy clove and smooth banana lurking around the corner.

Clear lemon yellow body with a white head that was gone by the time it reached my table. Aroma is medium sweet, banana, clove, some wheat. Taste is medium sweet, banana, clove, other spice, some wheat. Watery light body, some crispness. A solid take on a Hefe.

hopscotch (8911) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2003
The appearance is of apricot nectar. Loch-Ness Murky! Tiny, white, creamy head. No lacing. The aroma is of banana and clove. Typical of the style. 'Nuff said. The flavor is fruity and yeasty up front. Perfectly balanced with a tart hop presence on the backside. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Short, tart, dry finish. Different for a German Wheat, but very nice!

GT2 (8282) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
355mL. Pours a clear yellow to straw with a medium, bright white, suddy head forming but not sticking around. No lace. Nose is relative to style with mostly apples, pears, and spice. As it warms it picks up a little phenolic clove and old banana. But as it opens up even more, these volatile compounds are replaced by heavy oatmeal and cereal grain...maybe something corny or buttery like cornbread (diacetyl and/or DMS?). Off-character in the nose but inoffensive. Taste is slightly buttery with a soapy palate. Sweet pears try to come through with sweet banana dessert, but this is ruined by big soapiness. Poor palate. Really all over the place.

Hazed yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Bannanas and clove on the nose. Bannanas, clove and a twangy sour. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Hazy golden coloured body with a nice white head. Aroma of nice lemons, wheat and yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong yeastie flavour with a lot of lemons and a strong scent of hops! Aftertaste potent, but strong in showing the good flavours. Overall, a nice wheat - especially in the summer heat! I sampled this six ounce sample from pseudo-draught at the Old Dominion 2005 Beer Festival on 24-June-2005 in Ashburn, Virginia.

nickd717 (3471) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 27, 2011
12oz bottle as a trade extra. Hazy golden-yellow-orange in color with a small white head that leaves a thick foam ring after settling. The aroma is somewhat typical for the style with banana, clove, and a little lemon zest. The flavor is pretty typical with average sweetness. Banana, clove, spice, and citrus. Nice tingly carbonation with a light feel that adds to the drinkability. You know, it’s tough for this style to wow me these days like it did when I was a BMC guy in college. This one is well-done but does not exactly separate itself from the peloton. A nice summer beer nonetheless.

Draft, Bowie location. Pours a very cloudy, golden-yellow color; white head with pleasant lacing. Scattered bananas and cloves in the aroma; reserved. Relaxed carbonation. Medium, chewy cloves and bananas in the mouthfeel: quite fruity; pleasant hefeweizen core, but lacking some body and density. Medium, clove and banana and citrus finish.
