Sampled a pint of this beer at the brewpub in Winston-Salem, NC. The beer had a light, somewhat cloudy, straw-gold color with an average-to-small white head that had average retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma featured bananas, but also had some lighter notes of straw, lemon, cloves, bubble gum, and a bit of wheat. The beer had a light wheaty taste and was a touch sweet with some banana character, but also had a bit of bitterness. It was a fairly wet beer with a lighter body, and had low carbonation and a light mouthfeel.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Beer 51 Asheville trip. Cloudy yellow, slight head. Aroma is lightly of wheat, bit of clove. Flavor is wheaty, slight clove, slight banana, hint of bubblegum - appropriate to the style, but wish it had been ramped up a bit more. More banana than anything else. Too bad, I had really hoped for an awesome hefe on the trip.

Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, thick white head. Aroma of banana bubblegum. Taste is buttered popcorn, odd.

Tap at universal joint - pours a cloudy yellow orange in the dim pub light with a white head. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, and clove. Taste leans sweet, palate crisp finishes thin. Overall, solid hefe, though not spectacular.

Pours cloudy and golden with a moderate head. I get a slight citrusy smell off it and a somewhat wheaty taste. Definitely pairs well with the slice of lemon they served it with.

Draft at Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria in Asheville. A hazy yellow-gold color with a thick creamy head on top. This is light-bodied with wheat, banana, and clove flavors. A light herbal spice joins in but it’s a touch thin. Definitely a good choice for the summer though; thirst quenching and pretty tasty.

b3shine (5343) - Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; golden and hazy with nice lacing. Smells pretty good too; yeast with a zesty citrus scent (which could be the orange slice it was served with too). Tastes decent; could have a little more zip on it though. Docked for feel because it’s lacking hefe kick. Still decent though.

tkrjukoff (4042) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2012
Tap at the brew pub. Pours cloudy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is weak to medium acidy dry fruity a bit yeasty. Flavor is almost sour, acidy, thin body, a bit yeasty, fruity citric and fairly bitter. Finishes bitter acidy.   Darn good summer brew, would like to see this brewed with fresh raspberries.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Draft pint. Hazy straw-gold with a small lasting disc of foam. Nose is dry cereal, light lemon and spicy yeast. Taste is lemony wheat, bubblegum and clove-banana. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is well balanced.
