Pours hazy yellow with nice notes of clove and bananna. The spice shows deep throughout the palate and you have a great sense of texture as well. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 16, 2011
A: The pour is a hazy golden orange color with a fluffy white head.
S: Amazingly, this smells like an actual hefeweizen. Lots of cloves, and some banana, though perhaps not as much as I would like. Sweet bread and wheat notes with a mild yeastiness and pepper note.
T: Sweet malts and bread all the way through with lots of spices. Plenty of clove, banana, sweet bread, and wheat. There is a slight citrus peel flavor toward the back end, almost candied orange peel.
M: Medium in body with a low to medium carbonation.
O: A surprisingly decent hefeweizen, but it doesn’t really stand up to an authentic German example. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2011
(Draught at our hotel). Pours cloudy yellow with creamy white head. Aroma has loads of ripe banana, clove, wheat and a bit of bubblegum. Taste is semi-sweet with light bitterness. Medium bodied with thick texture. Smooth, yeasty finish. Pretty good hefeweizen! BeerLimey (2155) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2011
A good German style hefeweizen. Pours to a pale orangey yellow (not much foam), with plenty of banana and clove both on the nose and the palate. Drinks well, a little lemony, a little spritzy. Pretty good example overall. can8ianben (1614) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Pretty standard, a bit of spicy clove, a bit of candied banana, hazy yellow color, etc. Good, not great.

Hazy yellow pour from sampler. Nice banana clove thing going on with a nice malt backbone and a little bit sweet. Enjoyable. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
This is a strange wheat beer. Seemed to have the same cereal grain weirdness in the Dunkel as well. No banana or clove here and too much sweetness. Pours a pretty yellow color though. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
On tap at Stone 9/12/10. Murky pale yellw. Fizzy dense head. Taste is lotsa tart lemon and yeast. Clean with light bitter smack back. keepersj12 (3143) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Very nice version of the style. Light hazy yellow with a foamy head. The aroma was sweet malts and clove, banana and other spices. The flavor was similar. Very light and easy to drink. Nicely refreshing for a hot summer day.
