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.

Renobob (619) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2014
Bue à la pression. Nez floral. Au palais, c'est très acide pour une blanche allemande donc surprenant. Pas désagréable à boire mais une pinte suffira.

chinchill (1808) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2014
11.2 oz bottle. Deep amber body with a durable, creamy head and excellent lacing. Flavorful, with moderate levels of banana and yeast/spice over a good wheat base.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic Bavarian Hefeweizen with yellowish white, irregular, creamy, initially rocky head and deep peach blonde colour, darker than usual for the style, cloudy. Deeply fruity aroma of pear, banana and apricot, cloves, almond, yeast, wheat, bread. Very fruity, sweet onset, soft, nice yeasty spiciness, light hop bitterishness in the finish, where the wheat sourishness also develops, ending dry. Great example of this refreshing and elegant style.

Brewhemia (29) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Light hazy amber color and white head. Great Fresh and fruity banana aroma. Nice fresh light taste that with the banana notes present and a very nice mild and light mouthfeel. I imagine this will be a perfect match to a hot summerday.

Tselloufc88 (107) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Golden brown in colour, aroma is of some bubblegum and a bit of sweet apples. Taste is apples, banana and a or ounces sour note. Refreshing and pretty tasty. A straight up Hefeweizen.

monk191 (899) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
A very nice Weiss. A bit of Dunkel flavors. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a thick white head. Smells of orange, banana and cloves. More of that in the taste, along with some cinnamon, and a nice sweet finish. Had on tap at Mill Valley Beerworks.

ejr (145) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
Flott uklar oransje med et stort hvit skum. Aroma av malt, hvete, frukt og banan. Smaken følger aroma, men fint innslag av syrlige frukter og avsluttningen er søt banan.

Strong malt and banana taste. More alcoholic taste than other wheat beers. Really good one, but not easy drinking.
