Bottle from Sam’s Wine and Spirits. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is creamy orange with coriander and citrus. Citrus orange and yeasty flavors. Tangy and spicy. Nice American influence on a Bavarian style.

Pours a golden amber color that becomes a creamy cloudy muddy water color when the sediment mixes in with a thick foamy head. Smooth rich flavor with a nice hoppy bite. Excellant Beer!!!!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nearly opaque, slightly orange, yellow with a thick, creamy, large-bubbled head. The aroma is of bananas, lemon, and a crazy amount of piney, grapefruity hops. The flavor is dominated by the fresh, flowery hop taste, which adds a unique and delicious element to this hefe, which is a style that I typically despise. The finish is crisped by the hop content and overall makes for a unique and delicious style-bender.

Much thanks to theisti for this great beer. Very nice orange pour with a full inch frothy head that lingers at 1/4 inch the entire time. Great lacing. Aroma is lemon, honey and hops...oranges too....very interesting.Mouthfeel is creamy and thicker than I expected. Chewy spiced malts soaked in lemon and honey and sprinkled with hops...mmmm. Not a fast drinker, but one to be enjoyed. Thanks T.

Fabulous looking pour with a deep and cloudy orange body and a huge frothing head. The aroma is even bigger, with just a ton of banana and clove in there. A fun beer to swirl around in the class, letting the yeast mix and the smells waft out. It’s a bit hot to taste, combined with the bite of the Hallertau hops (which I find pleasant), yielding an almost peppery finish. That combined with the banana prominence make the beer very quirky, but certainly winning.

Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: Hazy amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing. Citrusy hops, wheat and spice aroma. Medium, clean body with wheat, earthy malt and fruit flavors. Light spice underneath as well. The finish is fruity and lingering with a banana and clove aftertaste. All around good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle: From trade with pantanap (thanks a lot) Smells absolutely wonderful, like fresh picked fruit and a wonderful floral hop aroma that is to die for. Pours a cloudy and pulpy orangish/brown with a medium sized tan head that lingers for quite a while. Taste is got a nice hop texture, wheat, yeast, citrus(orange mostly) and a light spice note that comes toward the back end. Palate is somewhat bready, viscous, and carbonated at the back of the mouth. Overall, I could really enjoy this brew if I got it around here. I would buy as much as I could If I has a regular supply.

Bottle. Super nice golden/amber color. Aroma is not what I expected - instead of the usual banana/clove aroma found in many german weizens, this beer has a nice yeast aroma, akin to a belgian ale. Flavor also reminds me more of a Belgian ale. Nice flavor with a hint of sourness. Pretty good.

this beer is DRAFT ONLY. only 39 ratings? wow. my first BOTTLE we drank way too drunk because cmubeerman wanted to. the second one shattered in a calamitous refrigerator accident (half msonnnenberg’s fault). finally i’m having it properly (if the hops are a few weeks faded oh well). deep brown orange hefe appearance with generous head. holy shit the dregs were thick. now my beer looksl ike mud. smells like candy. then you get closer and the hops show as well. i was thinking this smells a lot like bubble gum, then i saw the bubblelicious sitting less than a foot from the glass. nevertheless, great aroma. honeyed tripel on top of a hop background. the hops remind me of lagunitas farmhouse hop stoopid. first sip is a little bland and overcarbonated. as i continue to drink this i find myself not impressed with robust flavor but rather enjoying the mild balance. i think the hops have faded.
