Draft sample at brewpub. Poured cloudy amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate banana, clove and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a solid sweet finish of moderate duration. Good refreshing brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, clove and a fruity finish. The taste is wheat, bread and big clove notes. Medium bodied. Not as much banana as advertised but still pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours only somewhat cloudy from tap which is unusual for a Hefeweizen. Some Banana on the nose. nice banana and clove flavor on the tongue but the finish is all wrong. It should be a bit drier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the brewery. Pretty big overall. Thicker than expected mouthfeel from the wheat. Definitely a big helping of banana and clove notes. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at GTMW - Pours hazy amber with no head. Aroma of light banana, bubble gum, and clove. Pretty classic, but neither as pungent or complex as the classics. Taste sadly isn’t as pronounced, it’s watery and not very bold. Very minerally, with muted taste of everything that’s on the nose. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated, but not a beer I’d pay for.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
medium yellowish-brown with huge white head. hazy. mostly clove to the nose. mild bitterness before a very nice clove and banana yeast flavor with enough residual sweetness to give this a nice mouthfeel, which most other examples lack. very nice

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Light yellow/light orange, very cloudy. Lemon mostly, with some banana and spice coming through. The wheat could’ve been more evident making it crisper, but still an easy drinking summer beer.
Although 2 years ago my ratings had huge banana in them, maybe they missed their mark this time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours hazy reddish golden color, thin white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, yeast. Mild sweet flavor. I liked this one because it wasn’t too clovey or too citrusy. Nice balance of sweet and spice, very refreshing.
