Was great in the middle of winter and can imagine it in summer with meat. Much better than any wheat beer I have tried. A light sweetness on the tongue, a banana smoothie.

Rich malty flavour although still light on the palete, slightly sweet with a bit of spicyness and banana. Good example of this style of beer.

Nice choice for my 100th. Cloudy, dark brown with a nice head that recedes to a thin bubbly coating. The aroma is amazing, citrus notes mixed with a mild spiciness - remarkably enticing. Tastes good too - nice spice and mild tang with a refreshing aftertaste that is a bit thinner than expected. Good solid brew.

nice white head that disappears quickly... after swirling and mixing the yeast up, it became a brown diarrhea-looking beer with lots of yeast chunks floating around. medium palate. not as fruity as many hefeweizens i’ve had. spicy, a hint of banana with ardent hops at the finish. not bad...

Bottle: Aroma was lemon, banana, and cloves. Poured a dark brownish orange with a white head that lasted less than a minute. No lacing. Very lemony in taste. A little sour. Cloves in taste too as well as wheat. Highly carbonated. Short lived aftertaste that is mildly sour with a slight bitterness.

Bottled. Murky... big head. Wheaty/spicy aroma. Tastes of mild wheat, which is good as most wheat beers seem a little heavy on it for me. Good wheatbeer

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful, dark amber colored beer with a long lasting creamy head. Though it is a refreshing weissbier, it is a bit too watery for my taste

Just wasn't impressed. Head ran away quickly. Dark orange, clove and yeast aroma. No lacing. Clove taste, highly carbonated. I guess I would pass on this one.

Good, unremarkable from what I know about wheat beers, which isn't much. The usual clove and faint sour tastes are present. The taste gets stronger as the beer builds up, and I had to pour out the last inch or so of sediment.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber body with a white head. Banana nose. Some trace of smoke. Bitter. Nothing that I'd care to have again.
