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.

mutz (898) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2016
Van de tap als Maiselís hefe weisse. Geeloranje kleur mooie fijne kraag. Ruikt naar banaan en kruidnagel, smaakt idem met een wat bitterzure afdronk. Mocht wat voller van smaak zijn.

Reid (2302) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Crowler purchased from Growl Movement in Salem OR $6 Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a large thick and frothy off white head. Very strong fruity/over ripe bananas aromas. Sweet pink apples come to mind for some reason. Nice. Taste similar to aroma but has a nice creamy aspect. Excellent mouth feel silky smooth. A very good drinkable weiss bier.

Pudelek (330) - Gýrny Slýnsk / Oberschlesien, - AUG 2, 2016
Piwo lane 0,5 we Wrocławiu. Kolor brązowawy, piana szybko opada i osadza się. Aromat pszeniczno-bananowy, w smaku też lekko wędzone. Dobry, niemiecki pszeniczniak słusznie wysoko oceniany.

Gehbe (177) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 1, 2016
Cloudy amber with a nice offwhite head. Nose of spice, banana, yeast, lemon. Tastes sourish with some sweetness, well balanced. Creamy texture, high carbonation. A nice hefeweizen, but no memorable perks.
