Tastes like a banana milk shake, super easy to drink, creamy - I thought it would be good, but it was really good.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky golden orange with a small white head. Nice aroma of banana, citrus, wheat, clove, and apricot. Taste doesn’t pop as much as the nose would lead you to believe, but it’s a nice, well balanced brew with flavors of citrus, banana, yeast, wheat, clove. Full body, smooth, very pleasant. Short, fruity finish. Excellent beer for this style and great session beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Murky effervescent golde with nearly no head retention. Typical hefe aroma with some tart-ish wheaty notes giving a mild lemon peel hint that meshes with some clvoe phenlics- a decent spice presence. Crisp light body with a yeasty yet balanced flavor. Some citrusy wheat character under mild banana esters and clove hints. A bit minerally toward the back. A decent hefeweizen.

Wow this beer has a huge nose, just explodes with banana pie filling, along with some clove and citrusy fruit esthers. Slightly light on the palate and lacking in depth, this is still a tasty beer.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Sampled during Dark Lord Day ’09 back in April via roving growler in line for a few bottles of Dark Lord. Pours a hazy golden pale colored brew with an average white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of heavy banana esters, yeast, some light clove, tropical fruit and some bubble gum. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of Hefe yeast, banana esters, bubble gum, clove and a touch of citrus zest. Finish is smooth, with a fast disappears banana and golden grain malt aftertaste. A tad more wheat than I am used to but still quite excellent.

beernbourbon (1326) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Tap at Piece. Pour is very cloudy deep yellow with medium tan head. Aroma is wheat, floral notes, lots of fruit, some spiciness, and some faint hop aromas. Smells wonderful. Flavor is true to nose with a prominent fruit flavor that is very nice. It’s a rich full hefe and really good.

64oz growler. mouthfeel is a 5 -- echoes the bubblegum found in the esters with a juicy, responsive and alive palate. aroma is a killer blend of banana and even raspberry. more raspberry in the flavor. appearance is like sludge, ultra cloudy. mouthfeel continues to impress, so soft. this is a very drinkable and quite complex weizen, its just alot of fun!

A hazy orangey blonde with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice pungeant weizen with loads of cloves, solvent, banana cake. In mouth, a sweet weizen with cherry notes, banana esters, rather intense yet quaffable. On tap at brewpub, May 18 2009.

Tap at piece. This was really enjoyable. One of the best I had at piece. Cloudy gold color wtih a white head. Yeast, bananas, bubble gum, bread and spices lead to a really enjoyable beer. Mouthfeel is very nice and flavor is very nice indeed. Wheat, banana, honey and just a nice hint of hops. Session time!
