Oakes (12777) - 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.

Dogbrick (8507) - 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.

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.

Fin (7616) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Milton Keynes, consumed at home Monday 26th May 2014 Pours hazy light amber with white filmy head, overipe banana on nose. Taste is really quite convincing, little bit sweet maybe but plenty of banana more of this than clove. Nice, refreshing, I have served this a little too cold to pick out everything but its good. Wheaty with a little sweet clementine, good. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

sebletitje (6859) - 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.

Braudog (5873) - 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.
