Nice cloudy appearance, with a wheat/banana aroma. Wheat, banana, slight smoke and some sweet spice came through nicely. Very good and refreshing.

On tap @ Islands. Cloudy, nice yellow color. Served with a lemon slice, wheat was dominated by citrus, but nontheless it was very easy and a great session beer. Nice rich feel, I was suprised at how easy this went down, and down and down...

jgb9348 (5524) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a thick, dense white head. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a very fresh yeast note - a touch of sugars too. Light to Meidum-bodied; Creamy, wheatie flavour with a good dose of light spices that leave the mouth very fresh. Aftertaste shows a little alcohol, a little fruit and a nice pungent yeast note. Overall, a respectable german hef with some nice yeast and wheat flavours, but the cool refreshing spice flavour is definitely still noticeable. I sampled this pint on draught at the LAX Terminal 7 location in Los Angeles, California on 23-June-2010.

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 (3766) - 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.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ Karl Strauss Brewing Co (La Jolla), San Diego, CA. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, a bit of coriander, sea water and floral notes. Flavour of wheat, husky graininess, floral hops, a bit of saltiness and some yeastiness. Light bodied. Refreshing. Not that complex but very easy-going.
