Given how much I enjoyed the TJ’s hefe, this one seemed like an obvious winner. Aroma of banana and molasses. Cloudy tan color. Sweet taste of spiced banana bread and brown sugar. Smooth buttery texture. Not a match for the hefe, it is a good discount beer nonetheless.

Bottle, 12 fl oz, Trader Joe’s, Fort Lauderdale FL. Decent, clear features of banana in aroma. Not that complex aroma, though, as expected.

Bottle at home. Reddish brown pour. The aroma is ripe brown banana, spice, toasted wheat. The taste is toasty malt, spice, yeasty esters, dark ripe fruits. Nicely balanced finish.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a dark amber color with an off-white head and some lacing. The aroma is bubblegum, banana, yeast, and clove. The taste is banana, clove, funk, and yeast. There is a lively carbonation to it with some sour notes on the back end. I bought a six-pack of this once and got tired of it. A single bottle was enjoyable though.

Bavarian_Beer (43) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
Pours a dark Amber color with soft tan head. Aroma of bubblegum, clover and spices. Taste is light and full of the same flavors. Palate is light and thin for style but not bad over all.

Bottle. Medium brown in color. With a medium off while head. Aroma was clove and banana bread. Taste was banana bread with hints of caramel and a slightly bitter finish.

cheap (5110) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Nice darker hefe looking thing from a bottle. Mild sweet candy olfactory. At first a little difficult, again seems somewhat aged but date is 9/12/15. Perhaps more bitter and medicinal than was expected. Creamy hefe co2 is welcomed on gulps. Getting better as session continues. Banana is more apparent on the finish.

Sarlacc83 (1735) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2015
12 oz bottle, because, really why not? A: Dark amber color with a firm, foamy creme colored head. Very slight lacing. N: Rye bread, clove, banana, some toffee, some cinnamon, bits of toasted biscuit, white peppercorns. T: Sweet side with a bittering element, but somewhat bland here. M: Light to the point of watery, fizzy carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Honestly, not half bad. I wouldn’t want a full six pack of these, but given how well the nose comes off, I wouldn’t refuse another one, either. I just wish the body didn’t make the taste seem so flavorless.

12 ounce bottle, label says best before 10/30/15. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a hazy amber/reddish brown color with a couple inch frothy light tan head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like cloves, bananas, wheat/grainy malt and some caramel. For the most part I think the taste is the same as the aroma, but with the addition of some apple-like fruitiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I liked this, even though I don’t drink dunkelweizens very often I might have to grab a sixer of it. $1.08 a bottle at Trader Joe’s.

youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy copper/brown pour with a finger of tan head. Aroma has an artificial sweetness - sort of like banana Laffy Taffy. Not much else. The flavor is balanced much better though - standard banana/clove weizen notes with a liitle bread/malt. Very watery mouthfeel. Just fine for supermarket beer.

weihenweizen (2888) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy medium brown with small beige head. Nice banana aroma, medium/light body, medium soft carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is dark malt, caramel, and banana.
