Strong aroma of esthers (banana). Fuller bodied then typical. No detectable hops and very wheaty. Interesting beer but not for me. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2002
This was one of the first hefes I ever tried, and it gave me my first experience with the banana flavor the style carries. Unfortunately, this one's so strong on the banana that i've never had any desire for a refill. Nevertheless, it's a beer I've certainly enjoyed in a single serving.
