Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, 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)

mikeschuld (52) - 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.

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 18, 2007
Had a pint of this at Ginger Man pub in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day-I have been searching around for this beer and was happy to find it. Served in a stein with a very small head upon pouring. The color was a nice hazy copper and the smell was great-wheat beer smell with some fruitiness to it. Tasted great and went down smooth. There is a hint of spice (maybe cardamom?) with a bit of taste of almost banana with the wheat taste-a great combination I felt. Not too strong and something that I could drink a couple more pints of in a session. I look forward to trying it in Cork, hopefully at the brewery, and maybe bringing back a bottle or two if possible.

sebletitje (6326) - 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.
