COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An old fashioned Bavarian favorite, this "yeast-wheat" style has enjoyed a popular revival in recent years. Made from a 60wheat mash and fermented with a special strain of yeast, its complex flavor, with notes of clove, banana and vanilla, is unique in the world of beer.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a hazed amber brown. Yeasty nose that is just bringing the funk. Full banana on the flavor, which is kind of a good sign that these guys maybe sort of know what to do here. Nice robust and earthy profile. Full body feel on the mouth. Smooth carbonation. Overall very drinkable. Just a nice robust hefe.
