Bottle. Pours dark with a healthy head. Aromas just like a wheat beer but it seems a bit ’burnt’. Finishes surprisingly easy.

Hazy amber with a small, foamy, off-white head. Aroma: Wheat and clove. Definitely some fruit as well. Flavor was of clove, wheat notes, and perhaps a touch of banana. The palate was a bit thin, but had a decent mouthfeel. Not a bad brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Very carbonated and it had a real spice bite with a light body. Not bad, and good for a light beer.

Bottle into Sam Adams glass. A: wheaty, with a hint of sweet malt App: light golden-brown hue with creamy colored, 4 finger, frothy head. T: slight malt sweetness with big wheaty taste. Aftertaste of bitter wheat P: smooth with big bubbles. An average U.S. interpretation of a Dunkelweis

The bannana and clove shine through on this beer. A wonderful medly of full bodied flavour. Very smooth as well.

Good pour, solid white head, well carbonated. Taste of clove, orange and banana. Also tastes like a cheap imitation of weihenstephaner. If u want a good bavarian wheat beer get it from worlds oldest brewery. Similar in cost, yet weihenstephaner is superior in taste. Disapointed with many of Sam Adams commercial offerings, this wasn’t an exception.

It’s official! I don’t like sweet beers. This beer is horrid.... I usually like easy tasting wheat beer but this one isn’t good. It also has a cloudy pour and I haven’t had a beer that is cloudy to taste good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is amber-orange and cloudy. Head is minimal to non-existent. Aromas of banana, bubblegum, and a hint of nutmeg. Strong flavors of banana and nutmeg. Medium-body with lively carbonation and a strong, slightly dry, finish.
This is not a favorite of mine. The problem isn’t that the beer doesn’t have any flavor, it’s that it has TOO MUCH flavor. There are so many different flavors in this that it just ends up being a bizarre melange that doesn’t really work well together.

I rated this against other Sam Adams beers I have had. I would have to say this is my favorite Sam Adams brew. I wish I could find it in 6 or 12 packs. Has a nice cloudy, deep-orange look with a nice foamy head. Aroma is of banana/clove. I just totally enjoyed this beer and highly recommend this brew, especially if you like Hefes.
