1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap @ River City. Cloudy bright orange pour with a white head. Some banana up front, bread, and yeast. But a weird vinegar and lemon juice aroma. Mild clove notes. The flavor is tart and a bit acetic. Weird. Bread, banana, clove, and some citrus. Yeast, grass, and water. Pretty low carbonation, too.

Cloudy golden. Light banana and foot on the nose. Banana and very sweet, but with a tart wheaty, spritzy finish. Refreshing despite the initial sugar blast.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: ’Unfiltered’ that’s pretty clear. Lemon on rim masks the banana odor, but taste is clearly banana. Pleasant mild beer

"more of the banana flavor from the yeast than in many other american versions, which makes it a little more complex and enjoyable. otherwise, standard fare. 5/09 - hit the spot on a hot day"

On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy golden with a modest white head and a slightly sour wheat aroma. There is a sourish wheat flavor that starts fruity with cloves and banana ester, then finishes dry and slightly bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Hazy amber beer with a nice white head. Lemony aroma with some wheat. Clean nicely balanced malt/wheat flavor. Gets a bit tiring, but that may be just me and american wheat beers. Not a big wheat bite.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apparently it was brewed in the Bavarian tradition. Kind of hazy golden. This one did not show any signs of this. It was bland with light wheat notes and a moderate zesty finish I guess. Perhaps a light fruitiness, but in minute amounts. Not all that great.
