Mora2000 (5727) - 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.

thirdeye11 (5555) - 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.

This is a decent hefe. Not a lot of aroma, the flavor is mostly thin and indistinct. Nothing to get excited over.

nick76 (4223) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2013
The aroma is off with corn grains and Herbs. The appearance is hazy gold. The taste is a bit like wheat with some corn. The palate is smooth. Overall not the best of the style.

wlajwl (3897) - 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.

Cavie (3798) - 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.

Poured a light golden color with aromas of light wheat, banana yeast and clove. Flavors are the same it’s a basic hefe overall.

Headbanger (3311) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
22oz bottle 5/18/13 (Binny’s Naperville) my bottle says 5% ABV-42° in Weizen-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a big loose white head. Aroma of banana, clove, and yeast. Taste of the same with a lot of sourness. This light bodied brew is either infected or something has terribly gone wrong.

thegreenrooster (3220) - 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.
