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.

skmikeg (1203) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a small white head which fades quickly. Aroma is of wheat malts, yeast, banana, some cloves, and some faint bubble gum notes. Taste is similar with yeast, wheat, and banana dominating. has a medium body with a slightly watery moutfheel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a pretty good, above average hefe.

Barreras (1175) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow with a lemon zest aroma. Taste is crisp and a bit gritty because of the unfiltered beer. A refreshing beer that would be nice on a warm day. A hint of sweetness, possibly vanilla that makes the aftertaste nice and mellow.

llcooldave (1161) - 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.
