3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong banana cream pie aroma with notes of coconut and lemon and light, spicy cloves. Opaque yellow body is topped by a decent, white, fine bubbled head that recedes to ring. Banana flavour is strong with underlying, lightly tart wheat. Medium light body with strong, crisp carbonation. Sampled on tap at the Sandlot at Coors Field.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A uniform white cap is worn by this truly murky golden body. Limited maltiness in the nose, but the yeast procures abundant banana and cloves notes into a globally very bubble gummy desserty and crusty wheat field flavor profile. Medium bodied, ful small bubbled carbonation, a bit short in flavor, but accurate and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with good carbonation and an aroma of bubblegum and banana. Flavor is a good balance of bubblegum, banana, and clove. Palate is slippery. Good, but not great.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this beer on 10/8/1999 on tap at the pub. Aroma is faint but nice. Color hazy gold with very good head. Taste is good with a mellow Hefe like taste but a bland finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coors Field. Hazed golden appearance, finely-bubbled white head. Overall not a complex hefeweizen but basically contains no brewing plans, only suffering from a simple recipe. So, the minerally yeast esters with a touch of banana and clove is nice. Medium body with an enjoyable fizziness. Refreshing, simple summer drinker.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
You know that you make beers appeal to the masses when you have to call it a "Banana-Clove" Heffeweizen. That’s what the bartender at the Sandlot called this beer before he served it to me. That’s like serving a "Piney-Citrus IPA".
It was probably the best beer I could get at the ballpark, so I wasn’t too dissapointed. There is definately a banana-clove flavor, more banana than clove. It was pretty easy to drink though, especially on a hot day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is mostly lasting.
Body is hazy light yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana, light note of clove.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
I’m being maybe a little enthusiastic with my score, as it’s quite sweet and a little one-dimensional in the nose (banana, banana, banana, and bread). However, it is unquestionably enjoyable and rich for the style, and I enjoyed it the most of the three I had in this session.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great big yeasty aroma, nicely spiced, with the clove and banana, taking the forefront as your would expect. Banana bread maltiness, slightly sweet with some lemony acidity, balanced out by just the right amount of carbonation. Decent for a ballpark beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coors Field. Cloudy gold pour with a creamy head. The smell is wonderful, even out of the plastic cup it’s served in. Deep notes of banana and vanilla mingle with lighter notes of clove and fruit. The medium body is creamy and smooth with more banana and bready malts. Really tastes like banana cream pie, with a hint of lemon. This really is a good example of a Hefe and would gladly drink it time and time again over the other BMC offered at the ballpark. Now only if they would serve their beers throughout the park and not just on the main concourse!
