Big yeast smell and something fruity, but not bananas. I can’t quite figure it out. Decent hefe taste, but stronger (obviously, as the name indicates). Pours a cloudy dark amber with a fluffy bone colored head. I can sort of taste the banana-ish flavor, but it’s as strong as other tasters indicate. Slightly citrusy. Not as flavorful as hoped. Decent. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange coloured. Huge aroma of overripe bananas. Sweet and yeasty banana flavour. Thin finish. dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2005
this must be a breakfast beer. cloudy amber color. more banana flovor and aroma than i usually like. pour it over your cornflakes. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Beautifully fresh blend of lemony cut grass, and banana aroma make this a very respectable wheat. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
Forever lasting white head thrones above the delicate pure amber body. Initially seemingly simple nose: yeasty bananas and cashew nuts. It just grows on you and boasts a great palate, full, creamy with the finest bubbled carbonation, smooth and delicate. Plenty of ripe fruits (Bananas with a capital B, berries, pomegranate, orange, apricots) accompany the perfumey and bready yeast, elegant in itself and unveiling traces of cloves and even rye or grilled marshmallow sweetness rather than straight caramel. Good stuff, very malty, extremely clean with a confident balance. One of the most quaffable (while being pleasant) products I’ve encountered. Thanks Clark!

Pours cloudy brown with a huge head that fades very slowly. Aroma is of a strong hay and wheat with some banana. Flavor is wheat then caramel and banana, and a slight spice. Flavor is nice. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 9, 2005
Dark coppery color, very cloudy appearance. Little vanishing white head. Strong banana aroma with mild spices. High carbonation. Flavor has banana, mild caramel and citrus, ends with lasting dryness and biting carbonation. Thin to medium bodied. Too much carbonation, still nice refreshing dunkelweizen.

Hazy golden brown with a white head. Aroma of bananas, clove, and yeast. Expected more body. Banana sweetness gets more pronounced as it warms, nearly to the point of being cloying. carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Dry, large head, high carbonation, medium body, dark amber color. Taste very clean and crisp, subtle flavors of carmel, banana, citrus fruit, spice (clove?). Excellent. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2005
Banana, caramel and chocolate with some citrus tones and a lovely soft spiciness in the doughy aroma that seems malty but light. Hazy amber-tan coloured body is topped by generous off-white head that recedes slowly to a lasting cover. Caramel and banana flavours are apparent but somewhat subdued after the promise of the aroma. Citrus and cloves also make appearances with none taking the spotlight. Strong carbonation and medium-light body that is very dry and well-attenuated. Lager glass, fridge temp.
