Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2011
Cloudy papaya colour. Smells like a sugary, banana-accented weizen. Sweetish taste. Nice banana accent. A balanced, sweetish weizen with a slight bit of hop in the finish.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Cloudy orange with small thight head. Banana aroma. Thin but nicely flavored brew. Soft. Mellow banana esters lead to a doughy finish. All round decent, though.

Had this one some time back and can’t remember the details. The only thing I really remember was that it was distinctly average.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2009
Tap@PorterhouseDublin. Light fruity aroma with hops notes. Cloudy, yellow colour, white head, good lace. Sweetish, bitter, hops, hint of banana, lightly spiced. Medium body. Not much like a real German Hefeweizen. I like those sweeter and fuller.

Braudog (5758) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the brewpub, even served in a nice weizen glass. Straight outta Munich, this delivers the requisite banana, clove and yeast. Very well done and smack dab in style. (#3666, 9/13/2009)

[2176-20090520] Tap. Sweet fruity yeast aroma with strawberry or raspberry leaves. Clear, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Some banana esters and green twigs flavour with mild sweet floral cardboard corn notes. Medium body is tangy. Seems fresh, average.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
2009-05-20. Dark yellow with a moderate white head and lace. Aroma of lightly spiced yeast, sweet undertones of wheat and grains. (6+) Flavour is similar, light spice throughout, mild yeast and light bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste after sweet wheat and grains in the finish. Average palate. Rather pleasant. On tap at Franciscan Well, Cork
