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.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi’s friend. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of graininess, vegetables, overripe fruits, a smoky note, a bit of spiciness. Slightly swetish flavor, with bread, yeast, graininess, some spiciness, fruitiness, and a vegetal touch. Quite light-bodied.

Dogbrick (11492) - 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.

hopscotch (10609) - 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.

rosenbergh (10372) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Draught at the Frankenmuth Brewery, Frankenmuth, MI. Clear pale golden color with a tiny white head. Yeast, rubber and wheaty malt in the aroma. The flavor is dry yeast, rubber, wheat and dry malt. Thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Nearly totally clear yellow color. Thin white head. Decent lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Vanilla, light banana, light spicy hefe flavors. Moderate sweet. Alright hefeweizen, despite being completely clear.

Pour on tap at HopCat, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of banana, clove, pepper, some white fruit, biscuit, yeast. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, lemon, clove, banana, spices, yeast, some bread, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy.

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.
