Cloudy golden straw with a white head. Nose is sweet banana, light lemon, clove, and sweet bready malt. Some hints of bubblegum and pepper, too. Nice sweetness to the flavor of bread, banana, and bubblegum. Yeasty, some clove, a hint of pepper, and a light citric tartness.

theisti (3416) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
~16 oz draft at California Adventure in Anaheim, California. The pour is a cloudy white yellow with a smallish white head. The aroma is grain wheat, light citrus, and a fair amount of clove banana yeast. The taste is a nice balance between the grain wheat, the zest of the lemon and finishes with the Hefe yeast notes. Decently clean flavors. The palate is medium to light bodied, pleasantly unfiltered mouth feel and clove banana and earth wheat in the finish. Hit the spot.

Draft at the brewpub in RB. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Tastes like earthy wheat malt, cloves and bananas with light hop bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like spicy and earthy wheat, malt, coriander, cloves, and bananas.

On tap at Columbia Street brewery. Hazy yellow with nice white head. Classic sweet malt and wheat aroma. Sweet malt flavor matched nicely with wheat. Tasty Hefe rendition with good lacing.

Dogbrick (9183) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
On draught at Islands restaurant in Huntington Beach, served with a lemon. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Wheat, bananas and clove in the nose. Medium, clean body with wheat, tropical fruit and sweet spice flavors. The finish is fruity with a lingering wheaty aftertaste. Above average overall.

(11/2/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of wheat and banana. Sweet wheaty flavor with some bread notes, fruity esters and light spiciness and a bit of tartness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Pleasant.

On tap at beer stand in Disney. Thanks again to Ratebeerians, for the alert on this being the only semidecent beer in the place. I opted for the slice of orange. Very hazy, somewhat pale, constant head made it look nice. Big banana nose, once you get past the orange. Palate is sour yet dry and astringent, very carbonated in a good way. A very solid German-style hefe.

Part of a sampler in San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of banana, citrus, and cloves. Similar flavor, a light beer. Decent overall.
