Pours super cloudy, milky looking, pal yellow with a thin white head that leaves good lace. Smells of bananas and yeast, sweet. Tastes the same. Bananas and yeast sweet, slight honey. Medium, watery body, light carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Served far too cold and with a huge lemon wedge at California Pizza Kitchen. However after warming slightly I could tell this was a solid offering. Very cloudy yellow. Not transparent at all - almost like an orange smoothy in appearance. A big frothy white head and maybe a little too much carbonation. Perfect balance of sweet/sour citrus notes blended with the classic banana and clove aroma and flavor. Somewhat dry and bitter in the finish, but a delicious beverage none the less. Rerate: Just had this a second time at Islands Burgers without realizing that I’d already had it. Again served too cold, VERY high carbonation. Some weird off flavors - almost in a cheap homebrew malt kind of way. Going to knock it down a bit.

Foxbush (1268) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2006
This beer replaced the Extra Special Bitter that was out stock. The beer was cloudy and yellow. There was flavors of fruit like banna with some head. This was too sweet for me and was the lowest of all beers tasted.

llcooldave (1082) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Wonderful creamy flavor with some banana, vanilla and spice coming through. Mostly clove though. Cloudy yellow in color. Nose is a bit spicy with more of the clove aroma shining through. Overall this is a pleasure to drink. It actually reminds me more of a wit than a hefe. Good stuff!

~Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. ~Scent is banana fruity. ~Flavor is banana, yeasty and spicy. A bit watered down. ~Feels light and fluffy. ~This is good, unfortunetly taste is a bit "mellow yellow".

Tap. A very nice hefe. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Nice strong aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The taste follows through big time. Great balance, with both the clove and banana yeast esters shining on their own. A nice lemony finish.
