This beer tastes very strongly like bananas. If you enjoy bananas you will enjoy this beer. Long lasting head, nice amber color. An enjoyable beer, recommended. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle. Hazy iced tea brown with a large lasting head. Quite attractive. Dusty citric nose that is quite earthy and malty. Taste-apple, clove, candied banana, doughy, yeasty, juicy fruit gum, fruity esters, cantaloupe, and wheat. Takes a few sips for the full flavors to develop and open up, but it is quite enjoyable. The wheat doesn’t overrun the flavor profile-it accompanies the candy notes. This would be just excellent with a huge plate of sausages and kraut. can8ianben (1546) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Not bad, it doesn’t stand out to me as more than a powerful wheat beer. It does have some very fine qualities, the spice in the nose is heavy, there is great cloudy amber/yellow colour, and it has good depth, but I wasn’t really drawn back to it. It has an interesting, almost sour, flavour to it. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2005
A Mes rate:
On tap at the Princess Louise. Typical slightly dark German weiss appearance. Wheaty and sweet nose.Smooth drinking with lots of banana and a bit of apple peel. Nice sweet finish. Rather tasty. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Pours very cloudy murky deep copper/light amber. Nice frothy off white head. Lighter in color than most dunkelweizens. Aroma is light banana, hints of green apple and clove, along with nice bready hints form the yeast and malt. Flavor is slightly nutty, with hints of roast, but is moslty wheat followed by some fruity esters. Overall, this is very subdued and subtle, but very well done. Smooth and creamy palate, whith jsut a slight graininess.

(Bottle 50 cl) Murky, dark amber with a tall head. Fruity and very, very soft and almost sweetish with an almost complete lack of bitterness. 120800 oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled. Orangebrown hazy colour, huge creamy head. Sweet bananaish malty flavour with wheat also being present. Strong wheat and malt in flavour. Sweet fruit and a bit hops in finish, a bit bananaish aftertaste. lamas (1639) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2005
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A murky iced-tea brown pour with a thick, fizzy tan head. Wheaty, lemony/banana, yeasty aroma with plenty of sweet malts underneath. Carbonation is very high and definitely detracts from the taste. It’s still very apparent that this is a delightfully well-balanced beer. Ample sweet, bready malts compliment the wheat and yeasty tanginess throughout. There are hints of apple pie filling in the aroma and taste. Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Yeasty nose, but weaker than Brau Weisse. Copper to orange colored body, cloudy, medium white head. Malty flavor, with some banana and yeast flavors. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours hazed amber with an enormous manilla colored head. Very elegant looking and definitely "attractive". Nose is bananas, wheat, yeast, some strawberry notes, light bubblegummy esters, minimal spiciness, and sweet malts. Taste is nice as well. Rich fruits, banana, light candyish notes, spices, sweet maltiness, light yeast, and wheat. Medium bodied and slightly effervescent. Refreshing and at times bordering on creamy. Finishes as well as it began. Light bubblegum, bananas, ripened fruits, light wheat, yeast, light spices, and sweet malts.
