16.9 oz bottle, pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, orange peel, coriander, and sweet malts. Very nice aroma. Flavor not as strong or great as the aroma would indicate. Flavor of orange, hops, and clove. Mouthfeel is a touch watery. Overall a good beer, but a bit of a letdown based on how great the aroma is.

0 beers in. Golden with twinkles of bubbles in appearance. The first whiff is over the top in hops - I love it! It smells of fresh german hops - earthy, slightly mixed with some american C - citrus on the nose. I have yet to take a sip, and I already know this is going to be a special brew! The taste is sour right off the bat. Definitely no fruit needed for this beer! At 8.2 %, this is one delicious beer! Personally, I expected clove/bananna/bubble gum esters. Instead I got sour notes... imho a little too much sour.

From bottle. Great lemon clove aroma, with bubblegum and flowery hops. Fruity-yeasty sweetness and mild funk. Cloudy pale amber body with fluffy white pillowy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation and light carbonic tang. Starts with nice hoppy bitter bite on top of a sweet banana-lemon-clove and yeasty wheat malt character. Nice little warming in the finish, with a spicy bitter taste. Light chalky character on the tongue. Fairly smooth hoppy after.

500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orangeish-yellow color with a very beautiful frothy white head that likes to stick around. Very nice lacing. Nose is a pretty traditional hefe, lots of banana and spice (coriander and cloves) with a bit of orange and citrus thrown in for fun. I do get a little bit of "hairspray" at the end but not enough to throw me off, this might just be me. The flavor is nice and mellow but still present. It is mostly banana and clove with some coriander and orange, just like the nose. It has a bit more hop presence and bitterness to balance everything out nicely. The finish is kinda sweet and there is a wee bit of alcohol warmth in my throat, but hey this stuff comes in at 8.2% so....par for the course.

desurfer (1242) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a vibrant, hazy gold with a huge white head. Some flecks of yeast floating around. Aroma of banana, orange, and coriander. Very fruity; slightly tart. Flavor is assertive but soft; there’s a definite spiciness, some mellow hops, and more fruity esters and clove. Finish is dry and tangy with some alcohol warmth. Very nice weizenbock.

Hank1980 (962) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a hazey orange with plenty cloudy carbonation and a decent head. Pretty heavy lacing. Aroma of spice, esters, orange, clove. Taste is of hops, clove, yeast, and orange. Hops are what make the beer great and unique. Mouth is well carbonated.

500mL Bottle. Pours a beautiful body - very cloudy orange with small white head. Some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is yeast and hops. Taste is wheat, bitter hops, and some alcohol in the finish. A bit too bitter for me personally, which held it back from being really, really good.. hah.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2008
Very unusual looking beer, bright golden honey colour, very dense and cloudy wiith a large head. Sharp spicy fruity aroma. Banana, clove estery with a dry hop character that could have not worked if it were stronger, but is nicely restrained. Strange and very interesting
