Aroma: Lots of banana and clove aromas, with hints citrus. Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Taste: Medium sweetness straight through. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long soft finish. Overall: A nicely developed hefe, but nothing mind blowing or standout.

On draft at brewpub
This was by far the best release at the brewpub. As a general rule it seems that if you stick to the German styles here then you might come out with something that is more than a forgettable pour. I’ll certainly keep that in mind next time I visit.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy yellowish base looks almost like diluted fresh squeezed orange juice with a clean white styrofoam cap. Vanilla, ripe bananas, orange peels and dough push this to the bready side of the style without a doubt.

Flavor / Palate - An easy drinker fills the mouth with its fluid presence. Lemons, bananas, and orange pulp enrich the profile and move it from run of the mill to above average. Vanilla custard and honey bookend a well balanced spectrum. I am glad I ordered the 20 ounce pour of this rather than any of the other current drafts.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a murky orange-yellow color with a thin white head that burns away to a film relatively fast. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bubblegum and wheat. Light, clean body with flavors of banana, bubblegum and cloves. The finish is wheaty with a sweet banana aftertaste. Slightly above average Hefe overall.

swoopjones (5900) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Growler courtesy of Bill Metzger. Nice hefe. Aromas of banana, clovey. Supposedly modeled after Weinhenstephaner. Not as good but better than large majority of American attempts Ive come across. Well balanced & quite good

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Pours yellow big yellow head. Loved how they said they use weihenstephan yeast I love that yeast. The aroma is banana all the way. The flavor is much the same banana, cloves, some lemon and hallerataus, it tasted exactly like a hefe I made, good beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Hazy, pale and lemon-tinted caramel orange in color with a persistent white snowcap for the head. Sugary bananas are aromatically represented with a buttercream base and milky vanilla characteristics. Sweet cream sings with vanilla wafers, and a slight waft of cotton rides its coattails. Creaminess drops for the lemon banana chiffon flavor to come full circle. The vanilla’s there, in a wafer crust sort of way, getting soggy as the banana persists upon it. Gentle carbonation lacks the effervescence, but the pastry portrayal fills in for her flavor. The otherwise medium body kilters toward yogurt intuitions, encouraging vanilla, lemons and bananas with a subtle breezy bitterness in the end.
