Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2009
12 once bottle from a sampler. Pours a very, very, very, extraordinarily lighty hazed very, very pale golden yellow. Thin head. Poo head retention and lacing. Aroma is banana with nutty bread notes. Taste is bread with faint banana notes and maybe some other fruits. Not bad, but generic and bland. Medium bodied.

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Much better than expected, nice citrus and wheat aroma. Strong carbonation and semi cloudy pale amber color. Great flavor for a macro wheat, not skunky, no horrible aftertaste. Well balanced, notes of citrus, bread, and yeast.

Oscbert (1028) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
~Aroma is full of yeasty phenols. Banana dominates along with some clove and a mild bubblegum ~Pours a straw gold color that is mostly clear with a slight haze. Head is small and creamy. ~Flavor is to similar to aroma, although a bit more tart. Some grainy flavor. ~Medium light body with medium high carbonation. Funny tart banana finish. ~Nice hefe. The tartness in the tip of tongue and at finish annoys me. Makes it less palatable for me. Could be because I just had a porter. Decent overall. Would enjoy on a hot day.

Tasted blind. Lightly hazy yellow, thin white head. Nose is big banana, some clove, nice bubblegum presence. Sweet hay-like malt. Flavor is banana, bubblegum, clove. Finish is a bit sweet. Under-carbonated.

10/19/2009: Michelob Bavarian Style Wheat Unfiltered Ale... Aroma: Very inviting blend of banana, yeast, and clove; the banana is most pronounced and smells a bit like Banana Laffy Taffy. Appearance: Cloudy; pale but bright golden yellow; 1-2 fingers of off-white head that receeds at fairly quick pace; lasting crown; plenty of carbonation without looking overly carbonated. Flavor: Weak wheatiness; more banana, some yeast and lightly spicy clove; refreshing; thin finish; good aftertaste. Palate: Medium-light; soft texture; decent tingle on the tongue; airy, but not over carbonated. Overall: Refreshing and plenty flavorul; actually, it pretty good; a much better attempt than the Michelob Rye P.A.; I’d buy this again in the future...

12 fl. oz. bottle ( 09219 vc02) from Tmoney99. Thanks again Tom! Rating #167 for this beer.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of banana and clove. Hazy Yellow body with white head. Decent surprising flavors of vanila cream, banana and so zesty wheat in the mix. Was more of witbier to me anyway.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2010 Pour a hazy gold will a thick head that disapears rather quickly. Aromas of yeast, babana, bubble gum and cloves. Flavor of banana, cloves and yeast. Not too bad at all for an AB product.

Elwood (3211) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Cloudy goldish orange color with a foamy, off-white head. Aroma: Decent spice notes with solid wheat and banana notes. Flavor: Wheat forward with some clove, banana, and a touch of sweetness.. I am not sure I would call this a German Hefeweizen. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light, slightly dry mouthfeel and a medium-short, wheat finish. Overall: Certainly not the worst hefeweizen I’ve ever had, but a little too forward with all of it’s components. Take it or leave it.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2009
bottle. Yeah right, bavarian style. sure. bready, bananas and bubblegum aromas and flavors...but pretty artificial. Not the worst swill ever, but not really good either.
