AndresTM (307) - Vienna, - SEP 24, 2012
A hazy amber beer with a propensity to grow a thick, leathery head. The aroma is mostly banana, clove, and other yeasty esters, with some caramel and grain from the malts. The taste is similar, with grain, caramel, and timid banana in the finish. Thin mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

tmoreau (2424) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap at the Chicago Beer Society’s Umpteenth Annual Picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a decent layer of soft white head froth, and fair cling to the light lacing. The nose was banana, some additional esters as peach & orange, and light, spicy phenols as clove. Light to medium bodied, with almost too much liveliness to the carbonation, the taste added low bitterness, and slight tartness to the crisp finish. A refreshing, quaffable Hefe.

chinchill (1869) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2014
From bottle at the 2014 German Bierfest (ATL). Hazy light amber with a decent head. Light body with crisp medium plus carbonation. Light clove, typical banana, and high tartness for style. A pretty good mix of flavors but would prefer more malt and less banana.

HonusWagner (1380) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
A pretty typical Hefeweizen with the expected German estery characteristics and light sweetness. Banana flavor not as pronounced as I usually prefer, but good enough beer.

sinfull (833) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma of wheat , banana and pears. Wheat , yeast and fruits in taste. Moderate sweet with light bitter notes in finish. Good German beer.

villevav (217) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Samean appelsiininkeltainen, tiheä pysyvä vaahto, hieman sitruksinen, hiivainen ja vehnäinen tuoksu. Miellyttävä raikas ja hieman makea suutuntuma, ei katkeruutta. Maussa sitrusta, purukumimaisuutta, vehnämallasta, hiivaa. Erittäin hyvä olut. Lyhyt jälkimaku, täyteläinen, kermainen suutuntuma.

EyeAmBaldman (229) - Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white, soapy head. Aroma is fruity, with bananas and clove. Taste is fruity, a tad citrusy but not hoppy. Lemons on the tongue as we’ll. This is a pretty good Weissbier.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draft at Bru in Philadelphia. Pours a cloudy straw color with a small, thin white head. Lemony, grassy aroma with some yeast and black pepper. Body is light-to-medium, somewhat fizzy, with a brief, dry finish. Lemony flavor with black pepper and a light grassy note.

generallee08 (680) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
The body has an orange like beige colored body with a creamy white head. This head is extremely thick and long lasting which makes for some good lacing on the glass. The aroma has some typical banana peel notes with some mild clove, citrus and light hops in the background. Its medium body has all the good dry wheat, fruity yeast with notes banana, dry spice and a hint of barley grain. The hops add a light bitterness and some dryness to the rather snappy finish. Its active carbonation keeps thing light, lively and refreshing.

drdisque (525) - Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours cloudy deep gold (more orange than most hefes). Light dough ester aroma. Flavor is Light and wheatey with little depth of flavors. Some banana in there. Tasty but a bit too bland and definitely unexceptional.

TXBadger (1385) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a bright and cloudy orange color with white head. Bananas, cloves, and wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice yeast note.
