COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet mixture of spices and fruit with hints of clove and banana, this refreshingly pale German wheat is top fermented, unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and unmistakable cloudy appearance.

Tmoney99 (10817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Draft sample. Poured an hazy dark orange color with an large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus, banana and clove aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium spicy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle… Florida Craft Beer and Wing Fest 2012… Hazy straw-colored ale with a small, white head. The bouquet offers nuances of clove and banana with whispers of smoke and bubblegum. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with prickly carbonation. The well-balanced, sufficiently bittered flavor presents overripe banana with a hint of clove and a rumor of acidity. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and a tad dry. Well crafted and cleanly brewed. Simply not a favorite style of mine.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
On tap at the Frankenmuth Brew Pub. Poured a yellow color with a small sized head. Cloves, spices, and bananas. Stronger aromas and weaker flavors. Thinner body.

Dogbrick (8251) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Sample at the brewpub (no lemon requested or offered): This beer pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a medium thin white head and very little lacing. Aroma of wheat and cloves. Light, clean body with equal parts wheat and banana flavor, albeit not in great amounts. The finish is clean and a little watery, with a wheaty flavor and a light clove aftertaste. Above average, but could be better.

Bottle. Sweet banana, apple, clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet banana, orange, clove, and wheat malt flavor. A very nice Hefe.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a very hazy no visible carbonation dark yellow colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty banana and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt fruity banana wheat yeast and mild dough. A decent brew that I would consider buying again.

jgb9348 (4772) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Hazy honey gold coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus and some light sweetness - very nice! Medium-bodied; Creamy light citrus and curacao flavour with a good wheat backbone, some yeast and a lot of citrus. Aftertaste clean and smooth as well with a good citrus and yeast flavour which is the only thing noticeable. Overall, a very nice beer and great to sample here on tap in Grand Rapids! I sampled this pint on draught at Hop Cat in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 06-November-2010.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Draft at Frankenmuth Brewery. Served with a slice of lemon. The above description says "Served with a lemon upon request". I did not request a lemon and there was one on my glass. This was brought to the attention of the waitress for future reference. Poured a small white head that mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, cloudy, and no visible carbonation. Banana, spicy, sweet, and clove nose. Flavor was spicy, clove and a banana presence. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body. For this style, the aroma was way too subtle and somewhat boring.

Pours clear fora hefe. Smell is a little citrusy. Taste is stronger for ahefe, more like a wheat ale. Good sizzle on the palate. Yes, that ale attribute is really getting on my nerves. Yes, starts out a little citrusy then has a slight processed ale finish. Does have some bubble gum and banana notes.
