RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thick three finger high head that settles slowly to a solid cap. The resulting lace is a bit tattered, but sticks nicely, leaving a broken webbing behind. Smell; lots of strong bananas and cloves with a big wheat backing. After this warms up a bit, a little lemon peel and some sweet malts come through, as well as a touch of bubblegum. A bit more weizen than weizenbock in the aroma, but still very good. Taste; the bananas, cloves and wheat are just as prevalent in the flavor as they were in the aroma. Bubblegum and a zesty lemon fill out the middle, and then a sweet maltiness, and a bit of a tartness, come through in the finish. Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a very creamy smooth carbonation, and just an incredible drinkability. This one goes down so smoothy. If this was available anywhere near me I would keep some on hand all of the time. I picked mine up in Grand Rapids, MI.

Draught at Pigalle. Rich creamy banana, nice mouthfeel, honey, vanilla, pepper, pretty much all I love about that style, finish is quite dry. Solid weizenbock, nicely smooth and creamy.

Zlotta (1329) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2015
0.5 l bottle from ’Biermuda’, best before May 2016. Cloudy, brownish amber with a huge, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy aroma of banana, honeydew, vanilla and cloves. Sweetish, slightly sourish, yeasty-spicy taste of banana, honeydew, vanilla, some honey and cloves, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, sourish, spicy finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Moreish, tasty stuff.

shoulderbroken (3452) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2015
Keyaki. Nice. Banana, wheat, creamy, quite thick. Hides the booze. Just a hint of something fruity cherry which usually means booze for me.
