Poured a cloudy golden color with a small rather well-maintained creamy head. Aroma was very yeasty with some wheat. Flavor had some banana & spices.. along with some wheat & grass. Light-to-medium bodied, and a smooth hoppy finish.

Cloudy yellowish gold pour. Banana and clove aroma. Clove immediately present in the mouth, banana flavor comes on in the aftertaste. good carbonation. tough to judge this beer, as i am not too familiar with the style. decent beer.

Who knew hot dog juice could taste so good? This is the one beer where my wife has to make apologies and not me. I don’t get this beer and she swears by it. Taste funky to me. The ONLY thing that keeps the rating high is that NOTHING tastes like this. She just got a sixer of it so it’s freah and it tastes like it always does. Hot dog watery. I’ll concede it still tastes "good" but then I like hot dogs. Just not something I could drink a lot of.

Beautiful, big head atop a slightly dark golden body. Very nice hefe flavor with lots of banana and spice, some citrus as well, but not the leading aroma/flavor, and hints of apple, as well. Aroma along the same lines as the flavor. Fine mouthfeel.

Bottle. Attractive hazy golden with billowing head. Didnt get much banana or clove aroma some citric fruit with a hint of exotic fruit and vanilla but nothing really dominant. Quite yeasty with mild acidity. A touch watery in the body but fortunately not too fizzy for me.
