theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2009
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. Poured into my .4 L Kulmbacher glass. Pour is hazed yellow golden with visible carbonation and a frothy 3 inch white head. Head is very lasting. Some patchy lacing lines the glass as the head eventually falls. Aroma of clove, citric wheatiness and a nice banana orange fruitiness in behind that. Taste is the wheat initially, with a nice mineral somewhat sour bite, following behind that is the clove and some dry white pepper in the finish. Clean, and refreshing. Palate is medium, unfiltered and very drinkable. Nice one, thanks Brandon.

tap, very cloudy/thick bright yellow pour with no head, wonderful citrus/malt aroma, taste of citrus, wheat, banana, and a light clove overtone, zero bite/bitterness on palate, excellent beer...hope bottled is anywhere close to this!

robforbes (2074) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2008
pours a semi-cloudy orange-yellow with a medium size thick white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a good lacing, heavy carbonation throughout. smell is of wheat, touch of spice, and some bread yeast. taste has a lively carbonation on the tongue, wheat, slight banana, some yeast in the back, there is a touch of spice, and ends somewhat on the thick side with a spicy aftertaste. overall better than most of the silver city offerings.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Look is very orange, almost like cloudy orange juice, white head. Aroma is citrus, banana, wheat, yeast. Taste is much the same as the aroma but with less citrus showing. Not bad.

Draft at brewpub. Extremely cloudy banana pulp color. Very crisp, champagne-like body. Plenty of fruity banana flavor with light clove. Light, but full-flavored. Great for a hot day.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2008
From a 22-ounce bottle purchased at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a hazy bright yellow-golden with a medium-sized fluffy white top. Mild banana and clove aroma typical of Bavarian hefes. Crisp and clean, but a little dull and thin. Not the best hefe, but far from the worst.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2008
22oz bottle. The pour looks like the picture. A nice cloudy yellow orange beer with a great head. A light aroma of clove, banana, and a good amount of wheat in cereal form. Nice light fruity sweetness is accompanied by lots of wheat. A lightly sweet and pleasantly fruity hefe. Thirst quenching. Well made etc.
