Nice opaque banana color with huge airy/bubbly head. Almost spicy aroma; yeast is here of course, but there's also the a different fruit flavor, almost cinnamon. Excellent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
