22 ounce bottle pours a nice cloudy golden orange color. Aromas of oranges, light banana, tons of wheat, and some light grain. Flavors are all wheat up front and tons of oranges after the first taste. Really nice beer and very enjoyable for the summer time.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy and golden. Perfect aroma -- banana, one of the oddest resulting beer aromas ever, I need to learn the science of that. This drinks with a sweet edge, same banana, and even a little pineapple. Creamy feel. For style, quite good and quite authentic to the Bavarians. (#5654, 8/28/2014)

Tripplebrew (777) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a hazy lemon orange with thick frothy white head. Aroma is hay, clove, bread dough. Flavor is a mix of banana, clove, caramel. Body is creamy but offset with very active carbonation.

Great classic Hefe. Cloudy hazy yellow. Lots of bready yeasty flavor. Nice tanginess. Subtle hops. So good.

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Grayed out golden pour, hazy and laced. Lemon oil, cleaning product, clove and banana nose with a healthful dose of pleasing mineral water content. Undetailed and clean.

Soda cracker, lemon zest, spearmint flavor, cooling and soft. Low on stylistic checkpoints, higher on those herbs and general plucky tartness than the cushy banana and bread sweetness. Lightly pungent and evocative tarragon notes.

Zippy, mineral water clean texture; simple white bread flavor mid palate leading to a dry, soft finish. This example is an archetype of this brewery’s style, a key aspect of which is its attention to texture, balance and cleanness.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 Bottle shared at Brad Fest 2012 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a cloudy yellow color with white head. Lemon, wheat, yeasty, citrus aromas and flavors. Re-rated on tap at Steel Toe: 7/6/13 - spicy, citrus, coriander, wheat flavors. Refreshing wheat.

bookman10 (641) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Pours a very cloudy, light, pale yellow, with nothing in the way of head. Aroma is dominated by a pronounced sour banana smell. Flavor is likewise mainly banana and fruit esters. Full, solid mouthfeel. This is a very good take on a Weiss beer, maybe not as complex as some, but one I’d definitely try again.

Atom (1344) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Growler from brewery, pours hazy golden/orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of clove, coriander, wheat, and bananas. Take is mellow and drinkable, bananas and bubble gum with the yeast rather subdued. Clean and drinkable. Not my favorite style but very refreshing!

22 oz bottle. Pours a very hazy lazy sunshine yellow color with a quickly dissipating head. Flavors are wheat, banana, yeasty esters. Light bodied. Finish is crisp and clean, with just a hint of pepper or clove spice. Solid beer.
