chinchill (2756) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
500ml bottle with a BB date stamp of 15 Feb. 2015. Pours slightly hazy, dark amber, with an abundance of carbonation bubbles rising to a durable, light but creamy, bone-colored head. Aroma: some malt, more ripe banana and spices. Flavor: follows smell, but more malt and less spicy. Feel: light body; exceptionally smooth and creamy for a light bodied beer.

ContemplateBeer (1676) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 7, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Aroma: Banana forward nose with some light chocolate and spiced bread; clove is faint. Appearance: Murky light brown pour that really seems nearly blonde around the edges; Very fluffy bone head that settles into a soft cap. Flavor: Spiced bread, slight chocolate up front that develops into an extended banana presence toward the finish; clove lingers as an afterthought. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: A little dialed back in almost all respects, which might make it a decent introduction to the style.

Pailhead (5430) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of banana, wheat, light apple, and a touch of roasted grain/nuts. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention before eventually fading to a thick film. There is some sporadic soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light banana a touch of apple. The finish has roasted wheat and light clove. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

nuplastikk (4938) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottled as Konig Ludwig Weissbier Dunkel. Unfiltered orange-tan body, lighter than expected. Massive head takes awhile to settle down and become drinkable. Sweet malt and some banana clove aroma. Medium bodied, clean and light on the palate. Very light with the dark malts, this isn’t so far from a straight up Hefe. Bready and rather excellent.

Draught. This is a malty weiss. Nice medium dark color with a thin white head. The flavor is where it falls down.
