Banana is light on the nose and fainter in taste. Soft fields of wheat and toasty, dry bread mix well with sweet malts. Finish is toasty and dry.

This brew poured a small head of finely sized white mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a hazy yellow colored uncarbonated body. Its aroma was fruity with banana notes and its mouthfeel was bubbly with a lingering banana finish. The flavor was also like banana and bread.

Golden, hazy, high carbonation. Usual beautiful head. Aroma was surprisingly dry - despite what others have to say, I couldn't find any trace of banana or bubblegum. Dry taste, slightly tart finish: nothing too original, but the result was very thirst-quenching. Nice.

Middle of the road. Pale and cloudy, aroma of banana and vanilla. Thin body. Some acidic notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well-blended, not overarchingly banana, some minor bitterness, a tad thin. Some clove, tartish and crisp but not at all sweet - nice and very drinkable.

16.9 oz. bottle Chunks of sediment at end of pour, clouding the clear golden colour of this beer to a lovely dirty yellow. Clouds of fluffy foam on top, floral & citrus scents. Smooth and delicate, a great beer to begin the summer with.

I was truly floored by this beer when I had it out of a mini keg. The color dimensions of a sunrise. Hint of vanilla flavor.

Very hazy pale yellow (if there were such a thing as banana juice it would look just like this) with a typical massive white head. Nice banana, wheat aroma. The flavor was okay, just a little too bland. The feel was a bit too thin for my tastes. Average German wheat beer.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2003 Pale yellow colour, less cloudy than other Hefe-weiss beers. Huge head, not really lasting. Yeasty flavour, with banana traces (very typical for this kind of beers). The flavour is pleasant, quite sweet and yeasty, delicate and not sour. Spicy aftertaste. One of my favourite wheat beers.
