12oz bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellowish, small white head, nice aroma of fruits, cloves, wheat. Taste of bananas, cloves, citrus, with little wheat, and even some sweetness (a little too much for this style). Well-balanced, fizzy and bitterness on the finish, good drinkable beer. I would consider buying this by the case.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy light golden color with a ton of foamy head. Strong hefe yeast aroma includes lots of clove and lesser amounts of bubblegum. Yeasty esters are also strong throughout the taste. Banana and nice Juicy Fruit gum flavors mix well with some vanilla and dry wheat malts. Better than expected body for the style. Lively carbonation. A pleasant surprise for sure.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2011
This beer pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium thin white head that evaporates relatively fast. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grainy malt and spice. Medium body with flavors of malt, mildly tart fruit and cloves. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

12oz bottle. Pours cloudy golden yellow with little white heady. Aromas of banana, clove, and wheat. Flavors of banana, clove, and a little wheat. Not a very good example, but drinkable.

A nice cloudy golden color, with good carbonation. Clove aromas. Flavor is more clove and less citrus and banana. Little sweet biscuit. More fizzy than I am used to. Finish is a little flat.

Draft at the brewery. A great surprise! Poured a cloudy, unfiltered yellow orange with a lovely white head. Aromas of grass, citrus and some floral hops component. Flavor profile followed closely with loads of citrus. Palate was lovely, great carbonation and very quenching. The greatest flaw, in my opinion, is that it struck me much more as an american weizen than a true hefeweizen. It just was simply too clean in profile, nothing herbal, cloyin, dirty or grassy about it.

Bottle, slmost no head whatsoever, murky light orange colour, aroma of bubblegum, candy and some spicey touches, almondy flavour with bubblegum and some fruitiness, pleasant sour fruity aftertaste. Nice true to the style weizen.
