malrubius (1854) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle from Costco. Hazy golden copper with lasting head and lace. Aroma is heavy cloves and light banana and bubble gum. Medium to heavy peachy fruity sweetness with wheaty tang and spicy minerally bitterness. Medium body creamy. A little heavier and sweeter than I like my hefes, but fairly authentic. Not bad.

On tap @ Lumberyard. Slightly hazed golden pour with a white head. A lot of banana and bready malt. Mild tang and a bunch of clove. Flavor is kind of sweet and candy like. A ton of taffy and cotton candy. Some bread, orange peel, and cloves. Slight bread. Okay.

madquacker (1051) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2014
Bubble gum and vanilla and a somewhat cloying sweetness is a bit over powering. Would prefer more wheat less of the bubble gum.

Ferris (4981) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Draft - Banana and clove. Hazy pale yellow with a rich head. Banana, clove, spice and a very nice creaminess. Very good classic Hef.

dwyerpg (4640) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
Smells a bit wheaty and a bit fruity but not banana or too strong. A medium cloudiness. The flavor is definitely a bit on the heavy wheat side and the finish is too much also. Also, as the last beer after a long night at the Bruery, I am completely done.

DiarmaidBHK (3527) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours golden but not particularly cloudy with a thin white head which does leave some lacing but it disappears quickly. Clove and lemon on the nose. A bit of yeast and banana on the tongue but a sourness as well that seems to have walked over from a berliner weisse. Clean finisher. Not bad.
