On tap @ the brewery in Milwuakee. Murky dull golden amber with very scant head formation (for a wheat beer, this is a poor showing). Aroma is wheaty with a touch of both banana and citrus. The palate is a little thin, with light banana and spice, finishing with a citric tanginess. The best of the brews we tried here, bu not a great hefe.

On tap @ Water Street Brewery, Grafton, Wisconsin. Caramel and malted milk pour. Aroma of rotting bananas. Flavor of a banana malted milkshake. Many wheat beers have a banana taste to them and it sucks. This is no different though I have had worse.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Draft at Water Street. Pours a darker caramel colored, hazy with a sticky white head. Nose is nice. Banana and clove balance is good, light citrus notes, crisp and clean. Wheat noted. On tasting, really solid hefeweizen. The wheat offers a tang and sweetness, drying finish is there as well. Good ester/phenol balance. Damn nice hefe!

Dark cloudy yellow. Wheat, banana in aroma and flavor. Not much complexity. One of the better water street brewery offerings.

JMerritt (1770) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
On tap at Water Street Milwaukee. Hazy gold with a very small off-white head that is totally diminishing. Banana and clove aroma is weighted a bit towards the spice. Musty flavor, banana is heavy yet punctuated by bright carbonation. Wheat tanginess in the finish. Overall, not a bad hefe, though I think it could be a little less dry.

Sample. Rating #52. Cloudy dark yellow with a small white head. Light aroma, banana and wheat. Nice flavor, more banana and sweet spice. Nice. (2417)

deyholla (6503) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at the Delafield location. Pours a hazy yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of wheat (slightly earthy) up front with backing banana and clove. Flavor has a strong clove note up front with more banana in the finish all backed by a wheat note.

A very very average wheat beer. Decent flavor and aroma, but not much of it.

It is pretty crapy for a bavarian hefeweizen. Watery and they have enough dumbassery to include a lemon.
