Appearance is a cloudy yellowish/orange. Aroma is citrusy. Flavor is slightly sour with some bananas, lemons, and oranges. Bananas are the dominate flavor however. A nice beer but I honestly dont enjoy this style of beer very much. Its alright.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Sample- 500 ML bottle- Poured an off white and thick head. Cloudy yellow body with small amounts of sediment. Aroma was apples/bananas and lemon with lots of clove and yeast. Taste was fruity(banana, lemon) and spicy(clove), quite floral and yeasty. Sweet, tart, refreshing. A great beer all around.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Cloudy light amber beer with champagne-like carbonation and a large white head. Immediate smell of banana, apple, and clove. Taste is awesome, bready and yeasty, with lots of fruit and spice. Pleasantly sweet. Good citrus notes as well. Very refreshing and a great example of this style.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Head quit at about halftime. Nice estery aroma with hints of cider. Sharp wheat mouthfeel. Not much really going on here, just your standard weizen.

hopscotch (10523) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Murky, golden lager with a large, creamy, white head. Great retention and thick lacework. Hearty aroma. Malty and spicy with notes of clove and bubblegum. Well-balanced, sweet-tart flavor with hints of citrus fruit (grapefruit and lemon). Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Acetic, dry finish reminiscent of a nice, dry chardonnay.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Golden, with a white head that was a bit less than I'd anticipated. It dissipated quickly to nothing. Gentle malt with the disctinctive wheat wang to it. Nice floaral character, with fruity esters like apricot or peach. The yeast in this beer has some really distinctive characteristics. Clean finish. slightly sweet.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
Big frothy head on top of a cloudy amber body. Citrus and yeast on the nose and then a little spicy with maybe a hint of coriander. Nice.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 26, 2004
12 oz bottle. Massive lasting head tops beautiful bright orange nearly opaque body -- yeah, like every other proper weizen. Low key banana esters in the nose, pleasant but nothing to stand out from the crowd. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel, quite sweet, lightly bready, not at all acidic. I love an even halfway decent hefe, and this is certainly well-done, but doesn't seem like anything special to me.
