Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of yeast, citrus and malt. Light body with flavors of banana, malt and wheat. The finish is sweet with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Keg@ L Mulligan Grocer, Dublin Hazy orange-blonde with fluffy white head. Lots of bananas on the nose with a light body, a touch of phenol and more banana.

CanIHave4Beers (3264) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On draught at the Porterhouse (Central)

Pours a very hazy yellow with a small-ish head.

The aroma is the perfect combination of spicy banana on clove. The beer smells sweet but it’s aromatic and spot on for a hefeweizen.

The flavor is spicy and not overly sweet at all, the banana is just right without being cloying or overbearing. The beer is fairly clean all around, or at least as clean as a hefeweizen can be. The level of spice is low to style.

Remarkably true to style, no way this wouldn’t pass as a true German made Hefe in a blind taste test.

culchiem (2518) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2012
Draught at O’Neills Dublin. Deep honey colour with a thin head. Wheat and honey aroma. Flavour is dry wheat with some honey, quite flat, lacks a bit of zest.

mikeschuld (53) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Creamy head with a good strong fruity aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Bavarian style fruit and clove characters are very well done and don’t overpower. A little too much hop bitterness at the finish.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Draft @ O’Neills, Dublin. Orangée avec un léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme houblonné avec des esters fruité allant vers la banane et qcq épices. En bouche, le profile de la weisse est bien présent avec la banane et le clou de girofle et une fine touche poivrée. Palais garde des notes de levure et blé et reste bien épais. Facile à déguster et vraiment bien réussie pour le style allemand.
