Hand bottle… Cloudy, deeply golden ale with no head. The nose offers banana, pear, toffee and clove. Light-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is clean and thin while presenting nice notes of toffee and banana. Crisp, watery, refreshing finish. Sample provided by ericandersnavy!

Cloudy pour from tap at Plano Tortilla Factory. Very pleasant banana bread and pepper taste. Light creamy mouthfeel. Solid wheat beer, wish they still sold it at PTF.

(draught at Fillmore pub in Plano, tx) pours cloudy yellow orange with nice lasting creamy head. Nose of funky wheat and spices. Taste of dirty water, wheat, spices, overripe banana and a creamy finish that’s slightly dirty with more very ripe bananas.

On tap at Gingerman Fort Worth. Nice flavor and smell. Awkward mouthfeel in the back-side of my throat.

Tap at brewery.
Pours a cloudy, thick yellow with a healthy white head that lasts throughout the time spent drinking the beer. Aroma is trash water, pure and simple. Yuck. Flavor is slightly rank clover and ripe banana. Clean mouthfeel that leaves a slippery film of flavor on the tongue. Good beer, but the stink detracts.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Clouded orange pour. Wheat aroma and taste with lots of citrus notes. Quite a good wheat, probably the best thing to come out of Franconia yet. 4.1
RE-RATE 4/9/11 Tap at the brewery. This beer pours a cloudy golden orange color. It has a nice frothy head. Very hazy which is due to being non-filtered.
Clove sweetness on the nose, wheat tones and gentle fruit. I would say this is banana aromas.
Banana flavor for sure, with light bread and fresh grain. Yeasty aroma and flavor as it warms. Tasty. I haven’t had the wheat in quite awhile but I am liking how it has changed over time.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 On tap at trinity hall. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Nose is faint clove, coriander, banana creme brulee, and wheat. Taste is pretty much the same with notes of caramel as well as butter and a slight tart white vinegar like element. Moderate carbonation. No wow factor but actually kind of interesting.
