thegreenrooster (3720) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a decent banana and clove. Flavor is is wow super tart and sour. Finish is again sour. This had to be infected at some point but other rates seem to have gotten the same thing. Started out good but went down hill fast.

wlajwl (5053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2012
Aroma is spices and an off aroma, possibly old or oxidated. The flavor is citrus, lemon, bananas and a mildly tartness/sourness that lasts into the finish. Thin and not incredibly interesting but not nasty.

Orangeish amber in color hazy with a thin head. Wheat aroma with a grapefruit flavor. Light hops this was big malt forward taste. Light summer ale taste. Not too bad

DuffMan (8624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy lemony yellow, lively white head that collapses rapidly to a thin ring. Aroma is very sour, a little earthy too. Really weird for a supposed weizen. Palate is sour and yeasty, no room for anything else. Finish is coarse and acidic. Not a fan of this one.

Atom (1969) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2011
12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a murky orange/golden with no head after an aggressive pour. Aroma has a slight sour aspect with hints of orange banana and spice. Taste also has an odd sour funk presence, which is almost nice but certainly out of place among the poor flavors of clove and banana. I have no idea what is going on with this one. The American Lager would be a better Hefe.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bottle:   For a German Hefe this one has one hell of a quick fizzy head.   Otherwise, no lacing, lightly cloudy, looking like some dirty straw.   Pale bready nose, smells more like an American example.   Oh vay, a little tart wheatiness on the tongue, bready, but no real aspects of this being anything evenly remotely close to something German.   No banana, clove, or yeasty aspects.   Certainly wheaty tho.   Nearing the thin side for a wheat beer, not filling or heavy at all.   Finishes like a Birther finding out Obama is actually a United States citizen, unhappy and retarded.
