Bottle brought back from Wisconsin. Pours yellow gold with a nice rocky white head that lasts and plenty of bubble trails. Aroma and taste of banana, clove, and orange. Clear and assertive. I can see why itís rated highly for this style- wish I had a few more.

In a 12oz bottle. Flavor is banana-heavy fruit salad with a big dose of hops. Despite all of that going on, the flavor is strikingly dry. One of those summer-in-a-glass kind of beers.

beerbaaron (1708) - Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Clear radiant gold. Big rich lusciously creamy lasting white head. Creamy wheat. Great yeast character. Gentle banana and peppery spice, some bubblegum. Citrusy hops perfectly layered within. Soft with a little zip. Semi dry finish with a hint of spiciness. Superbly made as always, seeming as though theyíve been making it for generations. Its modern yet traditional. Nothing gimmicky.

Theydon_Bois (12864) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle split at Scopesters on melt day, from an IP trade, 01/07/15. Clear golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is pale malt, grain, vanilla, light citric peel, bread dough. Taste comprises tangerine, floral notes, vanilla essence, soft bread, melon. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style but canít quite fathom the high score this one has attained !

youdictategood (434) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle to pint glass. Pours mostly clear, bright gold, medium head that foams away fairly slowly. Mild aroma of citrus peel, hay, a little candied fruit. Flavor is similarly mild - honey in the background makes a little bit of an impression, but mostly just citrus and wheat as expected.

BreWedge (399) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
12 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours a near-clear gold with a substantial white head. Aromas are banana, clove, and citrus. Tastes are more hefeweizen than APA with banana and some spiciness being dominant. A little chalky with a dry spicy finish. Very unique beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle share at Paulís. Thanks to loins. No date or ABV details. Yellow, clear, sparkling, decent foamy white head. Aroma is wheat, soft banana, papery, some booze. Mostly light banana. Body is medium, quite foamy, low carbonation. Taste is a little buttery, some wheaty cereal and biscuit malts, no real bitterness, some perfumey fruits.

Scopey (9362) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to Cloin at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, soap, peach, wheaten bread and banana. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, bready, wheat, banana bread, candy, bubblegum and light alcohol. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, but pretty drinkable stuff.

Tropical Croydonia Bottle Share. Thanks to the Bois. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry with modest fine carbonation. Dry wheaty malts bring mild creamy sweetness. Nice banana streak. Mild bubblegum. Trace of fruits on the back end. Semi dry finish. Itís fine.

Bottle @ Croydonia. Gold with a small eggshell white head. Nose of general honeyed bread and little else. Pretty inoffensive. Taste is similar. Bread, apple and pear fruit salad. OK.
