IrishBoy (3855) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Draft at Toronado; by far the best GB brew I have had; Nose of banana, caramel, bubblegum, and brown sugar; cloudy, very dark brown with a medium tan head; flavor was banana, light brown sugar sweetness, and light bitterness. Damn good WB!

On tap. A hazy rust colored beer with an off white fizzy head. Banana certainly comes to mind in the aroma and a bit of dulled citrus. Nice banana, subdued fruit, and caramel malt flavor. This beer is creamy, light,and a pretty clean finish. A nice well rounded offering.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Draught in Washington DC A good looking beer, and an even better tasting beer than I was expecting. I was very plesantly suprised. The aroma left a little to be desired, but it was delicious.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2006
On tap Columbus Ohio... Pours cloudy brown with a creamy tan head that fades relatively quick. Aroma of bananna, caramel, clove, and a bit of the alcohol and some spice. Flavor is all of the above. Nice bannana and clove, mixed with chocolate and caramel and a spicy dry finish. Palate is smooth, very drinkable and a real warmer. Quite delicious as a sipper...

Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Very nice beer, but I think I’m rating it as a dunkelweizen as opposed to the weizen bock that it is, seeming to me more like the former. Certainly the stronger ABV is well hidden. It pours a cloudy deep chestnut brown body with a substantially sized tan head. Lots of lace. The aroma has scents of aging bananas, a chocolatey malt, soft wheat, a hint of clove, and rust. Fluffy mouthfeel. The malt is caramelly in the flavor, the bananas get even older, a mild nutty bitterness enters the picture, and the spices are muted. Sweet fruity finish. Not too shabby.

robgibbens (415) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Pours an amber color with a nice head that laces nicely. The aroma is sweet with maybe a hint of banana and spice. The taste is sweet with a lingering spiciness. Very nice all around. Well balanced.

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2008
GB in Bolingbrook. Jude’s 40th. Enjoyed this- chestnut brown- their "seasonal" selection. Good head, more on the spicy side (e.g., all-spice or licorice) with hints of weiss and banana. Interesting- a bit like the Weinhestephaner Korbinian I had a couple of weeks ago.

Draft. Slightly hazy caramel colored beer with an off-white head. yeast, malt, and wheat aroma. Caramel, wheat, yeast, and banana flavor. Medium body. Sweet caramel lingers with yeast, light banana, and light spice. I liked it more than I thought I would.
