slawek (90) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Amber with big head, very hazy. Aroma of clove, grain, some sweet fruits. Dry taste, no bitterness. Flavor of bread, some banana. Typical harshness of wheat beer. Very light body, low carbonation. Beer is very watery. I expected something much better.

MadRobin (1829) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap at Baja Bean Company in Staunton, VA. Hazy amber with a 1-finger near white head and good lacing. Aroma of banana, wheat, cloves, spice and yeast. Taste of banana, wheat, cloves, spice and toast. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. This had a very nice mouthfeel until it was marred by a few floating pieces of sediment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rdb84 (62) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a typical Weissen color: hazy golden/orange. Nice sprinkling from the carbonation. Very generous foam head. Aromas are slightly overripe bananas, wheat. Hint of cheese even from the yeast. Nice and fresh. Large banana taste, more natural then most Weissen but still a little like sweets/candy. Does not interfere with the overall taste, which is light wheats. Medium sweet. Aftertaste gives room to the banana flavor again. Not bad.

chickenflea (326) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Redlight Redlight. Color a little dark. Rich creamy head. Good aroma. Taste’s too sweet, almost cloying as it warmed. The balance of banana to clove was good, but too much sweetness spoiled the refreshing quality of this style. Body was medium heavy. Good carbonation. A good hefe but just a little too heavy.

On tap. Pours a hazy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a light aroma of clove, banana, and wheat, with a light flavor that is banana and clove up front with a bready, slightly sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pint on tap. Real good beer, all the flavors you’re looking for in all the correct proportions. Pours a rich cloudy dark gold color, no lacing but nice stable head. Banana, clove, slight alcohol in the aroma, and the taste. Great palate, just what you want. Nice finish, not abrupt, but short. Definitely recommended.
