Tap at Flying Saucer in Nashville. Pours a light yellow with big white head. Aroma is banana city with slight cloves. Taste is again very banana and clove forward with slight barnyard. Not my thing.

Poobah (262) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Lemon-colored with no head and a spicy, banana nose. Mildly-carbonated with a mellow palate finishing with a peppery, banana, lemon, and yeasty finale.

fluffy (1506) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Finally an American hefe that tastes like it supposed to. None of this overly hopped bullshit, or that watery clear crap. A perfect example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CPH2200 (281) - DENMARK - JUL 8, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pale yellow colour, more like a belgian witbier than a german weissbeer. Taste very much like a paulaner hefeweissen but with fruity citrus notes. Pretty good for a 4.5% abv weissbeer and not watery at all.

Pours a cloudy yellow wheat color into a 16oz pint draft, served with a lemon wedge. Not much on the nose : slight clove, and lemon. Flavors of banana, lemon, and earthy wheat bread like notes. Probably wouldn’t drink this much, but I do enjoy it in the sun or on a hot patio.

sonnycheeba (3382) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours mostly clear yellow/gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is banana, cloves, cereal malts, floral notes, light herbs, and light bubblegum. Flavor is light bready malts, light fruit esters, faint floral hops, and light sweetness; semisweet finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

snoworsummer (1950) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy yellow gold with a fizzy, bubbly white head. Tastes like slightly sour, slightly musky, like wheat and light lemon. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty, malty banana.

troyc (2432) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Bottle] Hazy and golden pour. Pillowy white foam head. Banana and yeast aroma. Taste is pretty decent... more clove, lots of banana and milder bubblegum notes. Wheat grains and mild funk in the finish. OK palate for a US made wheat beer, but thin when comparing to German versions. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2014
It poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of banana and citrus with a light wheaty back ground. The taste was similar to the aroma with a very pleasant tartness. Not bad.
