aromas of clove, bananaand yasty bread aromas. hazy golden color with a substantial head. sour orange and creamy wheat flavors a slight nuttiness perhaps apples like fujis. dryish finish. quite refreshing. doesnt have a tremendous complexity, but is easy to drink without to much thought.

Looks, smells, and tastes like a hefeweizen. Banana and clove aromas. Cloudy golden color, big frothy head. Fruity, slightly tart flavor. A little more wheat flavor and a little more bitterness than other German examples. Smooth mouthfeel. Good example of the style.

Cloudy yellow, white head. Tall weizen glaas, tap. Banana phenolic typical aroma. But I am not a big banana fan. Malty beer with a nice lingering malt profile. Banana and clove flavors mixed in nicely. Quaffable.

Nice wheat beer! Poured a blanchy white head, with a cloudy gold body. Aromas of clove and banana are present, but I am also getting another fruit in here....apples or plums??? Tastes similar to other beers of the same style, only I find there to be less alcohol present in this one. Doug Shoemaker hooked me up with this, and I am glad he did. Thanks Doug!

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.

Cloudy golden-yellow with nice white head. Lots of banana, honeyish sweetness, vinous notes? Right on Franziskaners heels.
