Transfer from BA review on 1-10-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance –Served a hazy golden-yellow colored brew with a one finger thick white head. The head fades slowly to leave a great level of lacing. Smell - The aroma is a mix of wheat and yeast with a light citrus smell, consisting mostly a mix of orange and a lighter lemon smell. With these aromas are notes of coriander and clove as well as some banana smells. Taste –The taste has many of the flavors that were detected in the nose. It starts out wheaty and bready with a moderate yeasty taste upfront. A sweeter citrus flavor also greets the tongue initially almost entirely orange in nature. The citrus flavor lessens some more toward the middle of the taste while flavors of banana, coriander and clove come to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to its end where an almost candy/bubblegum like sweetness joins the flavor as well as a very light alcohol taste, leaving a nice sweet wheat banana bready flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the brew is on the slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side as well. The chewier body is quite nice for the wheaty flavors while the carbonation is very nice for keeping it drinkable and for accentuating the spice and fruit flavors of the brew. Overall – It is kind of like a souped up hefeweizen or maybe like a hefenweizen-grand cru hybrid. It is great tasting and potent but very drinkable. Rather well done.

darioklc (511) - Karlovac, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2014
Hazy, cloudy rusted wheat yellow body. Rocky white head that pretty much doesn’t recede. The alcohol really comes out early before becoming very grainy with loads of bready notes. Banana throughout. It’s medium bodied and dry. Excellent taste and aroma, very boozy though.

Karol (618) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle bought at the bottle shop at the Weihenstephaner brewery in Bavaria/Germany. Overall a fatntastic weizenbock full of nose piercing banana aroma, yellow light golden color, delicious wheat and banana taste with a smooth and mild alcohol in the finish plus some mild hops. A superb brew!

MrBeerFanatic (848) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a cloudy dingy off yellow with a creamy frothy head with decent retention. Aromas of juicy fruit, banana ester, light mellowed caramel, grass. Flavors of slight juicy fruit, mellowed caramel, slight hint of toffee, grass, medium banana ester and light bread. Medium to high sweet. This is a good beer. Just about on the side of a desert beer. Good as a sipper. Slightly astringent aftertaste but mostly mild.
