Specialty which is born in Munich and brewed in Pittsburgh. This beer is loved by the world. Rich fairly sweet old style wheat beer. The taste is a wonderful combination of banana and clove.

Draft on 04/29/16. Served in a 1L dimpled mug. Arrived at the table a hazy gold color with a thick off-white head. The pleasant aroma featured some bananas, cloves, bubblegum, sweet wheaty grains, and a touch of citrus. Went down thin to medium-bodied. The taste started with a sizable grainy presence. A little caramel, bananas, bubblegum, and some citrus fruits followed. Nicely spiced throughout. A solid example of the style. Dangerously drinkable.

Draught @ Brewhouse: This one poured a cloudy to opaque straw yellow color. There was a large white head on it. It left a good amount of lacing. The nose was nice, but a little light. There was wheat, clove and a hint of lemon. The taste is good. Wheat, clove, a touch of banana and citrus. Decent body. A solid hefe.

(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA) Cloudy orange pour with a thick and frothy white head. Really nice banana and clove aroma with some dry wheat notes under it. Flavor is a very sweet fruit and spice note at the start. Good banana and bubblegum flavors with a mild spice middle and a smooth and dry wheat and banana finish. Really nice.
