Aroma: clove and banana, wheat malts. Pours a very hazy golden color, slight tinge of orange, white head with fair retention. Flavor has the expected clove phenolics and faint banana, bready wheat malt, a bit subtle. Body is on the thin side, medium carbonation.

Growler pour. Extremely dense creamy yellow/orange pour, frothy 1/4 inch head and a nice spicy banana nose. Flavor is also slightly creamy, heavy on the banana and cloves and finishes with a little bitter herbs and lemon. Really tasty, but not sure if I’d pay another $24 for a growler of this.

gyllenbock (4622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2011
On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011. Hazy yellow with a small white head. This is a descent German Hefeweizen. Aroma and taste of banana, clove, wheat, citrus and some yeast. Not a bad beer for the style.

Enjoyed on tap at 3 Floyds Brewpub in Munster, IN while having a scotch egg & some french fries with good friends. Appearance is like a mimosa, looks like orange juice in a weiss glass. Aroma of pure bananas, sweetness, like one of those Doles pineapple orange juice containers. Taste of hefe yeast, banana notes, not too many spices, tastes more like beer than juice, but still has a juice like quality to it. I like it, just a bit unusual.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Poured on draft into a weizen glass. Appearance is a densely hazy straw color with an everlasting head of white foam. Aroma is loads of fresh cut oranges, spices like coriander and cardamom, and loads of bananas and other esters. Taste is just like the aroma. This beer is what I feel every hefeweizen should aim for. This beer is delicious.

Growler. Light yellow hazy pour. Looks like pear juice. Aroma and taste of clove, citrus, and banana. Wonderful.

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange. Aroma of orange and yeast. Taste is banana and citrus with acid on the palate. Not bad.

Light and crispy. Lots of great fruit flavors in the nose. Some crispy and wheat flavors. A bit of hops in there. Decent.

Phone rate. $6 draught. Cloudy bright gold with 2 1/2 finger white, hood retention. Mod to high banana, mod spicy clove, wheat backend, as expected. Flavor still dominates with banana , wheat following with a little less clove behind. A tad sweet, but maybe it’s the bananas. Semi-dry, bitterness minimal. Mod prickly carbonation with a medium body. Craftsman still makes the best US made German hefe, IMO, as I like the wheat and clove more than the banana. This would be 2 or 3 on my list, however.
