500 mL bottle. Pours a deep reddish/light brown color with a large lasting head. Typical sweet banana aroma with just a tad of roasted malt as well. When I started drinking this it was too cold, but after letting it warm a bit, flavors of clove, banana, and bubble-gum came through. Very well balanced with a slightly sweet finish. Good complexity for the style.

Cloudy light brown pour with a large, well maintained head. Acidic flavors dominated by clove with little hop note. Astringent finish that is very refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Colorado Springs. Pours an yellow-brown with a lasting head and clinging lace. Aroma is a thud of banana and clove, with just a touch of spice in the rear. Flavor is clove, bubblegum, and it finishes almost exactly like the taste left by eating a ripe banana. Palate is slick. Overall, an above average Hefe-Dunkel.

Excellent clove/spice, banana, overripe fruit, candi sugar, it’s all in there. A really good beer, not overly sweet like some.

Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of allspice, cinnamon and clove with a bit of a peppery note in there. Taste is of figs, brown sugar, pepper, and banana as well as a touch of perry. Well balanced and very enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bronze, with a gigantic swiss cheeze head.
Rich, grainy aroma with plenty of yeasty spices and a bit of booze that mingled together very nicely.
Easy drinking, the wheaty malt can become a bit cloying. It finished silky smooth with witbier banana ester yeastiness. Mixed along with something salty to kill off the sweetness, this Beer is fantastic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice appearance. Light, mostly clear brown with just the right size white head (small/medium). Aroma of caramel malt, maybe a bit of chocolate. Much the same in the flavor except that i also seem to get just a hint of a nutty flavor in there too maybe. Also i can notice a bit more chocolate in the flavor. Only a small hint of wheat. Not bad at all. A good all around beer that I wouldn’t mind to drink again.
