UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Bottled. I found this in a convenience store at the Doral Building on Michigan Avenue, tucked behind the Coors Light tallboys. Tasted it on the train home, since the rush hour schedule wouldn't let me stop over at Flossmoor Station. Drank this from the bottle, so I couldn't tell the color well. But drinking from the bottle did kick up a nice foamy head inside, and there was a fine coating of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Presented a nice wheaty nose when I opened the bottle. The usual clove and banana tastes only became apparent after the first few sips. Between that was a nice malty sweetness balanced unobtrusively by German hops. Further down the bottle, the lemony taste becomes evident, which builds to a nice tartness as it warms up. All in all, a good, tasty beer to find.

nathanvc (180) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2016
Pours hazy golden with an orange hue and a huge foamy white head. The aroma has malts, banana and other fruits, wheat, yeast and caramel. It tastes medium to heavy sweet with a light wheaty finish that gives it a bitter touch. Creamy mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation and refreshing. Better than, say, Erdinger, but not as good as a Paulaner.

Fules (303) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 11, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, szűretlen, borostyán szín. Citrusos, malátás-banános, búzás illat. Íze enyhébb, gyümölcsösebb mint a szokásos búzasöröké, de ízjegyeiben tipikus. Utóíze a kortyot viszi tovább, de a gyümölcs gyorsan lecseng, a búzasörös aroma marad még egy darabig. Nem sok test szorult belé, de nem vizes. Könnyed, frissítő, de az alkoholtartalma miatt csak óvatosan. Becsapós sör.

A brewery with really good beers, but this one doesn’t stand out for me. I suppose it’s well done and might be really good for fans of the German Hefeweizen style, I’m simply not one of them. The beer is very style typical with strong banana and clover aroma on wheat background with average bitterness and decent palate.

Hazy amber beer with a white foamy head. Bready banana aroma. Flavour has the same qualities Banana, doughy bread, a hint of citrus hop. Sharp on the tongue. I could drink this all day.
