mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2009
[2339-20090728] 500mL bottle. Light fruity fresh yeast aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Light fruity yeast flavour has fresh banana puree notes. Medium body. Tasty; the label could kind of look like "mabelís" weisse, ha ha.

Oakes (15277) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
Draft, street performerís festival in Bamberg
Cloudy dark tan colour. Slightly fruity, dusty aroma. Balanced character, light yeast, some wheat and light banana. A sweet example but nonetheless retains some drinkability and balance.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 2009-07-28. Hazy golden body with a modest white head. (3+) Pleasant aroma is relatively mild, sweet yeast, generic fruit, alternating touches of banana and other esters. (7+) Flavour is similar with a sweet base, light bitterness and mild banana esters, modest tart wheat notes. Overall impression is on the sweet side. (7+) Average palate is smooth. Pretty decent hefe! Bottle from Carvills, Dublin

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a small, fizzy white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, cereal, caramel), light hop (herbs), average yeast (leaves) with notes of vegetable, apple, and pear. Medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

dwyerpg (5489) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Pretty nice orange color. Decent head, nice fresh aroma. A bit frothy, not too much banana, overall a quite nice German hefe.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Draft @ street festival. Dark orange russet color with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is clean with dried apricot and orange pith. Clean quaffable palate with medium carbonation. Dry entry with sweeter finish that leaves yeast on the tongue. Fruit character is nice and although it has little complexity I like it.
