Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Sampled at theCreve Coeur location. Unfiltered and hazy with a steady white layer of foam. Spider web lacing. A nose of cloves and wheat. A hint of banana and spice. Those ara all tasted and there is a hint of lemon and some mild bitterness which might be from zest. Refreshing and decent.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Draft from the brewery/restaurant in Kansas City. Not a lot to this beer. Poured a hazy yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was buscuit, banana, and malts. Grass, yeast and malts in the flavor. Very thin and weak. Nothing to this beer.

jandd1983 (2619) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2011
It poured a very cloudy yellow color with a small head. The aroma was of banana and spice. The taste was of the same. The flavor was of a typical hefeweizen, with some hints of banana and wheat, clove and maybe a few other spices.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Cloudy straw color with a white thin bubbled head. Mild banana and cloves in the aroma. Some wheat and malt also detected. Fairly light, but slightly sticky. Banana and a touch of tropical fruit also found in the flavors. Bits of cloves in the finish. Passable.

I hate this place, but when one came to town, I had to try all the beers. They’re all average to bad.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
10th rating. I had this one while spending the night in Fargo. Had a nice 7 sample tasting of Granite City brews. This was a nice hefe. Very little bannana, and some clove. Quite nice actually.

GJF (1258) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2009
It’s okay. Slight citrus and yeast. Like most granite city, there’s just nothing to it. I’ll say again, it’s okay.

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2008
draft at Fort Wayne brewpub - Pours hazy yellow with a one finger white head. It has a light citrus accented yeast aroma. The flavor is sweet and a little fruity. It’s light bodied and goes down very easiliy. This one is alright for a summer quaff. Like the other GC beers I’ve had, there’s just nothing remarkable about it.
