UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 smells and tastes like bubblegum. Also a little spice flavor. good with a bratwurst. RERATE. on tap this is just phenomenal. doesn’t have the extra effervescence from the bottle conditioning so it’s really smooth, and was an awesome refreshment on a hot summer day.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 The banana palate rings of fizz, and is aluminumy with the alcohol showing its presence. the Flavor is smooth with hints of grapefruit thus citrusy. I had this after a lenten meal of tuna and it was a nice dessert beer. The flavor never lets up and lace stays with the glass till the inevitable end. ENJOY!

One memory of this beer stands out, and that is the taste of banana. This leaves the beer a bit on the sweet side.

My staple drinking beer. For the price this beer is a steal! I get a 12 pack for about $12. It is standard hefeweizen with lots of banana and clove. Very refreshing and tasty. A great year around beer.

A beautiful golden color. A taste of wheat and hardly any bite at all. A malty flavor with a lemon zing. A refreshing beer. A good beer to have towards the end of the night.

Murky, deep golden lager with a large, frothy, white head which diminishes to a small, creamy, white head. Thick, creamy lacing.
The nose is spicy and malty. Soap, clove, honey and lemon. The flavor mirrors the spicy, malty aroma and then delivers a big blast of lemon zest. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, semi-dry, tart finish.
