Atom (1296) - 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 (6211) - 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.

Cavie (3749) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle courtesy pikapp327. The appearance of this beer is rather disgusting to be honest. It is cloudy/murky golden orange with a brownish mix in the color. There is a foamy white head that dissipates quickly, but the biggest component in the appearance are the large chunks of yeast floating in it. Unfiltered for sure.

The aroma is very yeasty which is expected due to the large chunks of sediment in the pour. Spicy yeast, grains and some lemony notes as well.

Flavor is spiced lemon and coriander, with a big grain flavor mixed with bread and yeast. There is a punchy type flavor in the finish that stays with the drinker for awhile. This is odd, and almost overdone with the spicy flavors.

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Bottle from pikapp327. Opaque yellow pour with a very small white head. Aroma is spicy, banana, and orange. Taste is fruity, watery, a nice wheat edge, and a little yeasty. Quenching!

dyetube (1181) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2010
This beer pours a cloudy dull yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are skunk, clove, and bananas. The mouthfeel is very watery and lightly sweet. This was not a good beer at all. Cheers!

thirdeye11 (5488) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clearish yellow with lasting film of white bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum, and lactic acid. Taste of watery very ripe bananas, butter, lemon and spices with a watery earthy finish. Not very good.

Mora2000 (5539) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2010
The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head. The aroma is bananas, wheat, pepper and something that smells just a little bit off. The flavor is bananas, wheat, lemon and cloves. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent beer, but it tastes about like a watered-down hefewezien, which judging by the label that calls the beer a "light hefeweizen," may have been what the brewer was going for.

bottle, thanks to mora2000, yellow orange in color with a fruity banana aroma, fruity buttery banana flavors
