Holy lord, is this banana juice? I hate bananas, so i about gagged on this brew. Most good hefe’s have some banana and gum flavor/aroma, but this was so over the top and sweet that i hardly chocked down my sample. Great Waters sure is hit or miss with their brews.

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Big banana--too much. Nice appearance. Light carbonation, light hazy yellow. A bit thin at first and then way too thin--it couldn’t sustain my attention, both for palate and flavor. Banana and bubblegum, but not particular delicately. (on tap at brewpub, St. Paul)

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/23/07: Slightly hazy bright goldenrod with a dense, well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet wheat with mild peppery clove and a hint of lemon citrus. Body starts fairly full with a light wheaty sweetness and some mild citrus tartness before a thinner, bland, lightly doughy finish. A decent hefeweizen.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Daft @ Brewpub: A very slight haze, light head and lacing. Nose of bright banana and a touch of nutmeg, allspice with the typical sweet wheat notes. The flavor is very sweet and banana-y. Nice hefe (I think).

Stine (1624) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Cloudy, light golden color. Staying white crown. Aroma is slightly distant. Hints of pears, grass and disinfectant. Bubblegum, clove and banana flavors, unmistakably true to form. Moments of foul sulfur tastes. Balanced and refreshing for the most part. Very close to the mark.

Pours a hazy straw amber. Topped by two inches of soft and creamy white foam. Nice head retention and lacing. Prominent banana bread in the aroma. There’s even more banana in the flavor than in the aroma. Wow, this is probably the strongest banana flavor I have ever had. And it is ripe, or even over-ripe banana at that. I don’t like eating ripe bananas, I like them slightly on the green side. But in a beer, this is really nice. It also lends a little spicy, yeasty, and bready characteristic. Theres’ clove in the aftertaste. What was that sweet clove chewing gum? Beaman’s or something like that? This beer lends some sweet clove that I actually enjoy. Medium to full body, creamy smooth, and softly carbonated. It feels thicker than it is.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Semi-hazed and dulled golden-orange in color with a milky white head. Aroma staggers with bananas and freshly cleaved cotton, vanilla buttercream and lilac scented dryer sheets. Well-acclimated souring lemons with a touch of banana cream pie and lime accented marshmallow fluff fulfill the flavor. Eased, mild carbonation lends to a medium-body that eventually presents sharper, buttery sourdough traits. Acidity is only around for a short while, but the alpha acid contribution is a touch too aged, bitter and dry. Takes on some pineapple smoothie traits at the outset.

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 July 2005. A great banana aroma. I have never smelled such a strong banana aroma in a hefeweizen before. Citrus and banana flavors. Good, but there just seems to be the smallest thing wrong with it that I can’t quite nail down what it is. Mostly good flavor but thin body.
