Bottle pour into pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear, golden yellow with tons of sparkle, 1 1/2 finger-width white fizzy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is strong banana and clove. Taste is as aroma. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, soft to average carbonation with sweet banana finish. Overall, a light and refreshing wheat beer with strong aroma and flavor with gorgeous appearance.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a foggy darker golden yellow with a thick ring of light gray head and no lace. The aroma is banana and clove. There is a light Belgian maltiness that isn’t good and a light apple on the back end. The flavor is the same. Big Belgian yeast and clove with banana. The apple skins really help this come off not so abrasive to me, and I like it. The mouth feel is thicker and a little softly carbonated. The aftertaste is malts and a hint of apple and spice. It’s interesting, but not good.

Hmm a somewhat distinctive wheat beer, predominantly is of the standard yeasty clove and banana variety, but has a slight pale malt and straw accent from what appears to be Munich malt or other non-wheat ingredients. Nice golden slightly cloudy appearance, average. Had a cleaner finish for the style, light peppery hint over pale grain. Just enjoyable, although definitely has piqued my interest in Troeg. Thanks Vincent!

Bottle from Kroger. Pours golden with a huge white head. Smells of green banana and grass. Taste is ripe banana with grass and toast. Not bad.

Bottle, thanks Christina! Spicy yeast aroma with notes of wheat malt, clove and pepper with some banana sweetness. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head with some retention and lacing. Starts with wheat malt flavors with some banana sweetness. Finishes smooth with the banana becoming more prominent as well as spicy yeast flavors of clove and pepper. Refreshing and quite a nice hefe!

Sample @ PGH Beerfest. Pours a cloudy light brownish amber with a white head. Aroma of banana and cloves. Flavor is of light banana with a hint of clove spice. Decent tasting Hefeweizen. Refreshing and enjoyable but not the best one out there.
