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.

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.

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.

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.

BelgianBeerGal (3776) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Draught sample at Aces & Ales. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white head. Massive aroma of banana, plus a little spice lurking in the background. The flavour is more banana and a little bubble gum. Very light, but maybe focusing on lowering the calorie count also pulled some of the flavour complexity out. Refreshing above everything else.

The aroma is way off with lots vegetal flavors, the taste is decent but it's kinda thin. A little worthy of drinking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

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.
