(Draught) Pours a ocre, cloudy body and a white head. Nice lacing. Strong banana nose. Hollow banana flavour however. Lasting finish.

Bottle. Cloudy golden color with a nice big fluffy head. Aroma was yeasty and banana. The flavor was of crisp malt banana. And not just a little bit of banana. They may have disovled a whole banana in that bottle. I've never really liked super fruity beers, but I love bananas and this one was very different than a boring fruit beer like Magic Hat 9. Great beer.

Clean & crisp with little atertaste. Lots of tiny bubbles throughout. Citrus and bread aromas.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Cloudy yellow with lasting, bubbly white head. Banana/yeast aroma with a hint of smokiness. The flavour is a sweet banana hell. No balance just banana esters. At least no brewing flaws though.

Clear yellow with a small fizzy white head. Mild wheat aroma and light wheat flavor with cloves. Mild fruit notes. Nice.

While not as stunning as say Hacke Pshorre or Weihenshephaner, this beer is great. Nice cloudy color, rich semi sweet taste. Defintly a classic wheat which is my fave. I taste a little pear in this one. Quite good.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Amazing cloudiness and wonderful smooth taste. I enjoy a pint of this stuff nearly every week at the neighborhood bar. Add a lemon near the end to give it a little something else. So smooth and delicious, a little fruity. The most beautiful glass and amazing color.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2003
I think I was a little surprised at first at how highly this was rated, because the subtlety is strongly suppressed at even a bit colder than ideal. Big, white head, more regular and slightly larger bubbles than the Club-Weisse, dark yellow/brown/amber, mildly hazy (not deeply so). Quite light aroma relative to the flavors, with yeast and wheat being strong. The flavors are nice when it is warm enough, spicy and fruity, bananas, light pepper touch, gentle clove, perhaps a bit of bubblegum. Like the Club-Weisse, also, the palate improves as it warms, from the initial watery bleakness to a soft, fluffy carbonation with enough citrus sensibilities to think someone chucked in some lemon zest. Still, a bit flat, but the flavors are good. Somehow I would think the ideal hefeweizen would have those flavors at a slightly colder temperature than is required for this one to reveal itself.

Cloudy in texture and aromatic like dried potpurri flowers. The beer itself is not opaque which is a little suprising for a beer that is fairly light in taste. I can't see my fingers through the other end of the glass. Fluffy head. I taste fruitiness, citrusy... peach, lemons, orange peel. Decent beer with a little bite.
