Smells and tastes buttery. The wheat flavor helps the finish, but you really have to hold your nose to enjoy this one.

Nice dark caramel color with lots of head. Plenty of banana in the aroma and the yeast strain is quite present. Good value.

WABeerFiend (274) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass in late 2013. A: Dark caramel color with a slight head. Very cloudy with yeast. The head recedes quickly. S: Strong banana. Delicious. Slight banana bread. T: Follows the nose. O: This is a great value for the price. It’s not as good as the German dunkels, but it’s still good.

malrubius (1930) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Fresh bottle from Trader Joes. Cloudy amber brown with lasting tan head and lace. Fresh mild banana clove and dark bready aroma. Mildly roasted nutty caramel fruity sweetness with wheat tang and mild minerally bitterness. LIght and extremely refreshing. Soft carbo. Fairly dry. A very reserved example of the style. Delicious and refreshing. Wish I bought a sixer.

PorterPounder (5825) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle - Murky dark orange pour, thick, sticky white head with decent lacing. Slightly funky, butterscotch aroma with some ripening vegetable notes. Flavor has some of the same ripening vegetables, a hint of cotton candy sweetness. Finishes kind of rough with some metallic notes. Thickish mouthfeel.

Aurelius (4497) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Very foggy, medium-dark brown. Average label, but a little better than the other Josephsbrau varieties. Standard 12oz longneck. Fruit and caramel, candied, mossy aroma with a faint nuttiness. Candied and lightly bitter up front, a tight carbonation break in the middle and then an almost herbal mossiness at the end. Slightly funky aftertaste with some peanuts, then it goes fadingly sweet. Tasty, sessionable. TJ’s, Tallahassee.

chinchill (2441) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2015
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of 17 April 2015. The body is dark reddish-brown, slightly hazy, with a durable and creamy tan head. There’s some lacing. Aroma: banana, clove, caramel and baked dark bread. Flavor: parallels the aroma but with less obvious banana and more prominent medium malts. Moderate complexity. O: very impressive and inexpensive version of this German style.

maddmatt639 (309) - Pacifica, California, USA - DEC 29, 2014
No retention and no lacing. Smells of toffee, coffee and bubble gum. Tastes of caramel, toffee and raisins. Sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (8317) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2014
355ml bottle. Hazed reddish/brown pour, off/white head. Inintila aroma is diacetyl and toffee, certainly not on point. Flavor is weird, definitely lots of caramel and toffee, some dark fruits, bit watery. Just not a great example of the style.
