3fourths (8099) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle at Herrmann Keller in Ampferbach. Phenolic banana, clove, white pepper aroma, very juicy and pulpy orange / lemon expression. Off-dry, quenching acid, zesty, tart and estery throughout. Sugar cookie malt and tropical fruit phenols. Some filminess / oiliness late. Tangy, flavorful, expressive.

Ernest (6257) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle at the Herrmann keller. Head is fully lasting. Body is cloudy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of clove, banana, lemon, pepper. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A wonderful rendition, surprising since their kellerbier was quite dirty. It’s rare that I can get a lot of enjoyment from this style, but this one really had it all...beautiful appearance, lovely aroma and flavor balance and texture, and seemingly very clean. Very enjoyable.

Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, banana, some yeasty, mild spicy and citrusy notes. Flavour is quite similar in a nice balance. Wellbalanced, and also gets some slight toffeeish notes in the flavour.

Hazy orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is light malty, moderate yeasty, rubber, banana. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average duration, fruity, rubber. Body is medium, texture is watery - creamy, carbonation is soft. [20100718]

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle at the brewpub’s Keller. Distinct banana aroma, quite rough. Cloudy yellow/orange colour. OK stable white head. The flavour also has a distinct banana note, better than the aroma. A little sweet, hint of bubble gum. Good for the style.

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2010
It’s warm yellow-golden with a huge, creamy and white head. The aroma is fruity with notes of banana and peach and a little yeast. The flavour is sweet with notes of banana and peach, light yeast and wheat. It’s mild and soft with a slightly spicy finish, and initially the banana flavour is very weak, but it becomes stronger and stronger as the beer becomes warmer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2009
@ brewery. think it was bottled. Bright yellow, scant lacing. Bland boring aroma has orange, and noting some phenols. Palate is spritzy. Alright, has a nice acidity in the finish.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2009
@ the Keller. Tan, cloudy. Fairly sweet smelling with light wheaty note. Spritzy carbonation obscures some footy funk. Wheaty tart finish refreshes. Good, functional wheat.

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2008
Draught at Herrmann-Keller, Ampferbach. Cloudy dark yellow, lively head. Light citric nose with some berries and yeast. The mouthfeel is rounded, but excessive carbonation detracts. Finishes with mashed banana flavour. Not the most refreshing of weissbiers.

pivnizub (8919) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2008
Bügelverschlußflasche (purchased at the brewery): Visible carbonation, mid-sized to bigger, firm, beaten egg-white-like head, golden coloured, only a bit hazy; citrousy-clovey nose with a good dash of yeast and wheat; sweetish-sourish flavour, quite light bodied; sourish and tart finish, rounded by a lemony fruitiness. Not very convincing, bur drinkable..........
