A traditional Bavarian style wheat ale with flavors and aromas of banana and clove created by the yeast, combined with caramel and chocolate flavors from the malt. Very complex yet super drinkable.

Draft at Haymarket. Pours a murky brown with a sticky white head. The nose has notes of banana and citrus, generic clove-like notes and some plastic. Sweet in the nose with a hit of toffee as well. On tasting, it’s a touch metallic and fruity. Sweet but has a drying finish. Still just don’t care for the weizen yeast that is used here. More of the plastic with some appley notes as well. Not my favorite.

Theydon_Bois (13459) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Haymarket pub and brewery, Chicago - 04/11/12. Cloudy mid brown/dark amber with a thinnish off white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose comprises banana, toffee, sweet sugars, cloves and a little plastic. Taste follows nose with a little yeast, caramelised brown sugars, banoffee pie, bread. Medium bodied with smooth soft carbonation. Decent enough stab at a D’weizen.

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed brownish amber pour, some darkness, thicker girth with frothy offwhite head atop. Laces well and remains as a mellow film that covers the whole beer. Aromas are firm yeasty and clove elements, banana and lemon fruit come into play. Some apple, toast start to grow as it warms. Kiss of chocolate, tart apple and lemon with bread, biscuits. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied preaching a strong banana estery presence up front. Bread, banana, vanilla kick with cool sweetness. Gentle apple, richer banana, some lemon. Middle gives some bread, biscuits, kick of toffee, faint sweeter chocolate element. Yeasty and clove start to show up, backend preaches banana and biscuity and mellow darker malt slant. Kisses of cocoa in backend and finish, but still a big banana fruit presence. Not as "Dunkel" as I expected, some big fruit flavors that seem to have fermented well (no off sulfur or yeasty elements). Bit of toast, cocoa, biscuits, bready grainy malts. Not bad. Just expected it to stray a little farther to the dark side. Banana esters have taken it by the reigns and led it where it wants.
