I loved the appearance. But my drinking notes show I was over shocked by the banana flavor. If you love bananas try this beer

Bottle from some fantasy baseball winnings. Thanks, Derek! Pours hazy yellow golden with a fluffy white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly. Really nice aroma of banana esters, honey, yeasty hefe funk, pears, sweetness. Flavor is sweet banana esters, light honey sweetness, pears, yeasty yeasties, lingering sweetness. Light bodied with plus carbonation as expected from the style. This is really nicely done actually.

dinkle50 (1025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Clear golden pour with a massive head. Aroma of sweet bananas. Medium mouth with a heavy banana element. Taste is refreshing. No off flavors at all and very easy drinking. You could call this an extreme Hefeweizen as the flavors are quite pronounced.

Kodos (205) - USA - NOV 7, 2014
An almost perfect Hefe. Cloudy with a nice head on the pour. Typical Hefe flavors in spades, very well balanced with enough sweetness to really make it shine. An absolute must for Hefelovers. Tap

jonnyguns (1070) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2014
Draft at Three Floyds Brewpub. Aromas of banana, cloves, vanilla and yeast. Taste is a banana explosion. So much banana. Cloves/herbal tones coming through. Not bad for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled@Beer Hunters, Pori. hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, some mild syrupy notes as well as nice spices aand some banana. Flavour is the one of a quite good hefewizen, along with some sweetish malts, spices and some mild syrupy and raisiny notes. Actually surprisingly bodied for a 5.5 % beer.

Pours a hazy light golden with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of banana, clove and nutmeg. Taste banana cream, clove, biscuit and wheat tang. Semi creamy mouthfeel and medium bodied with medium/ high carbonation. Finishes with a bit of sweetness. Solid Hefeweizen.
