Tap at Pizza Port OB. Cloudy brownish yellow with a one finger white head, fading to a thick film before long. Also, in a shaker pint. Lots of banana esters in the nose, some old grain. Flavor continues with fairly strong banana, but the spicy clove helps things from getting seemingly sweet. Nice balance in the flavor, didn’t think it’d be spicy enough from the nose. Not getting the old grain in the flavor. Scant bitterness, dry finish with a little wheat. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. Actually pretty solid, have never even heard of this brewery, perhaps a newly acquired import?

Slight smell of banana, similar to Belgian white without the spices...all malt no hops...good bold flavor

Idiosynkrasie (3587) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, dark amber colour with huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, off-white head. Wheaty and yeasty aroma, herbal and minimally peppery spicy yeasty, some clove and nutmeg, a touch of apple. Taste is moderately sweet wheat malty, some baked banana, spicy yeasty notes with hints of clove and nutmeg, you might imagine some cinnamon. Not really refreshing, not really fruity, but superbly spicy in well correspondance to the malt sweetness. A paradigmatical alternative interpretation of the style.

Trying a bottle at The Keg of all places! Good job on the new drink menue having something other than Rickards. Really refreshing! Golden orange pour with a nice foamy head leaving some nice lacing. Tastes of spices, bananas, apples, wheat, straw, hay, with a crisp finish.

Couleur ambrée trouble, forte mousse blanche cremeuse. Nez fort fruité, banane, levures. Gout doux de fruits (bananes) et levures, notes d’épices, bien cremeuse en bouche. Pas mal

My personal favorite German Hefe Weizen, but I'm partial since I lived in Bayreuth from 1987 to 1990.

Cloudy orange colour. Fluffy head. Orange, banana and vanilla aroma. A little bit sweeter than other hefeweizens I’ve had, but nice citrusy and banana notes in the flavour.
