Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet wheaty, and so is the flavor, but here notes of bananas mixes in. The end is slightly dry.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 19, 2005
In the 0.5L bottle at the Huber Haus German Bier tasting. Hazy amber-orange in color with a small white head. Aroma of banana esters, but no spices. Flavor is yeasty and meaty with strong wheat taste. OK, but nothing special.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2005
Hazy yellow-orange beer; huge, very dense, fine & resistent off-white head. Rainwater, mopwater, cloves & bubblegum nose. Ouch! I hope this is the glass - but I fear not. Terrible off-taste, making me think of olives on brine or stale, oxydized olive oil, on top of banana and clove flavours. Betterfood cookies in the finish. Typical wheat slickness, oily feel. Long aftertaste with the above characteristics. Seen this one was presented to me by joss, and some of the other ratings, I fear there’s somewhat wrong with this particular sample.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Bottled (BB 02/2006)
Hazy orange, big tight creamy off-white head. Strong wheaty banana aroma. Crisp, dry, lemony. A bit smokey. Good clean and balanced hefeweizen. Interesting to see comments about sweetness, this bottle certainly was not sweet. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
Re-rated draught@Hofbräuhauskeller Freising
Hazy orange-yellow color, good cloudy white head. Leather, bubblegum and lemon in the nose. Medium-bodied. Semi-dry, fruity with lemon-apricot flavors. Weak finish. Refreshing and drinkable, but not much character. (6/3/5/2/11 2.7)

Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle, RBESG 2005 Grand Tasting. Cloudy brownish yellow colour. Typical hefe aroma of bananas and cloves, cloves are dominant. Typical hefe flavour, maybe a tad sweeter than many other hefes. Nice enough.
