Draft pour light hazy gold nose banana, clove, spice, light wheat. Taste similar to nose, banana, light fruit, clove, spice. Starting mid palate and lasting through the finish a pleasing wheat flavor. No off flavors. An excellent example.

Hazy dark golden with a thick creamy white head. The nose is very wheaty with some floral coriander and a mellow clove note. Very delightfully traditional. The flavor is wonderful, lots of mellow earthy clove and sweet bready wheat, a touch of banana and lots of aromatic coriander.

kevinator (1141) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
For the style, this is top notch. Strong aroma of spice and wheat with some citrus. Cloudy yellow color with a white head. Full palate with not too much carbonation. The weight was light. Flavors are blended well with the wheat as a backbone supported by spices and a little pepper on the finish. Impressive.

Pours yellow hazy with this white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet with light citrus and banana. Tastes of wheat, hint of banana and citrus. Delicious the whole way through.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Growler: thanks, Michael! Murky & translucent goldenrod with lighter yellow hints; super big & creamy white head, chunky and slow to settle to a ring. Aroma is sweet piles of cornbread, banana taffy, lots of wheat, clove, light mint, sweet Bazooka Joe bubblegum, a light bit of some spice, maybe cinnamon or nutmeg(?) & a touch of residual sugar. Touch of musty hops in the finish, too. Taste is so smooth; creamy body with cornbread, banana, clove, wheat, bright bubblegum... Such a nice flavor from the hefe yeast. Smooth, so easy to drink. Very light hop notes with a touch of bitterness mid-palate that fades into a sweet & wheaty finish. Some lemon zest & apple sweetness opens up with warmth. I get some nice vanilla notes, too. Bready, yeasty, & tasty. This is truly awesome stuff.

Great hay and cereal aromas with a hint of citrus. Its an unfiltered wheat so it’s cloudy but a beautiful golden color with a sturdy head. It fits the hefe style beautifully it’s refreshing and not too sweet. The carbonation is noticeable but not overwhelming. No bitterness or astringency at least not to me. Overall this is a great beer if it’s hot outside or you are just feeling hot.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a murky yellow with a thin white head. Good lemon and bubblegum aroma with banana and faint hints of clove. First taste is heavy in lemon with some bubblegum. Lots of good banana flavor throughout similar to the nose. Finishes crisp with light noble hop bitterness. Just a touch of clove. Thin mouthfeel and good carbonation level. About right for the style. Finally get to try this highly rated beer and it doesn’t disappoint. Subtle flavors are spot on. Banana and lemon are highly present and clove is low, just how I like my hefes. Oustandingly smooth. I could drink this all day.
