A big thanks to Drew who supplied me with a hefty sample of this beer. This beer poured an ambery orange color with a very actively carbonated body and a slight white head. This beer was super cloudy looking as well. The aroma was definitely banana, wheat, and cloves as was to be expected. The mouthfeel was very light with a heavily fruity start while the finish in unbelievably sweet and bready. Surprisingly most of that wild carbonation disappears near the finish. Dry and sweet finish, malty and fruity, a really good kick ass hefeweizen! Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Big bananna ester nose. Fizzy head dies quick. Body is a nice hazy orange. Medium bodied with a nice citrus and clove taste that slowly slips away and becomes nicely bitter. Good balance with the sweetness. My only complaint is that the finish doesn’t last longer. aracauna (3651) - Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2004
This is quite dark for a hefeweizen being a cloudy medium tan. The head forms nicely, but isn’t large, but has trouble lasting. The aroma is more on the clove end than esters, but the flavor is more bubblegummy. Something almost vegetal in the finish, but not bad. Good little hefeweizen, but not up to Schneider quality.

Very cloudy orange color with a beige head. Aroma of fruit, wheat and yeast. Flavor of mostly bannanas, with notes of sourness, wheat and spices.. NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Really dirty, dark yellow/gold. Fairly rich yeasty nose where the banana overtakes, but not overpowers the clove, and is enhanced by a little hint of bubblegum. Really full on the palate. Chewy, even. Hops lightly tickle the tounge. Not overly complex, but very pleasant malt profile that reminds me of cereal. Heavy on the wheat. Quite a bit of banana in there, too. Long, slightly sweet finish.

Damn good weiss. And damn pissed that I’ve misplaced my notes, but even so this was good enough to have burned itself into the memory banks. I remember thinking at first that it would probably just be a simple and unremarkable wheat beer, but boy was I wrong. As it warmed it just got better and better. Loads of flavor that just kept on coming. Thanks yet again to Rockinout JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Draft at brewery: Very cloudy, yellow-orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is spicey and sweet, fruity (banannas, oranges), light and airy. Flavor is sweet and, in my opinion, much more like a belgain witbier than a hefeweizen. Subtle candi sugar notes, hints of orange and lemon, faint black pepper. Smooth and easy drinking, good summer brew. Not amazingly complex or anything, but a good drinking brew. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Cloudy straw color,small white head that lasted for a decent time then bailed to leave a nice lace behind.Fruity wheat,bubblegum aroma with maybe a hint of hops,and bannana.Banana abounds throughout this brew with a nice sweetness and mild hops presence.The wheat is a bit subdued by all the banana but still it's a nicely done brew and a bit unexpected for flavor.There is also a light spicey note coming through as the brew warms up.with the after taste being mostly banana and maybe some hops with a finish of fruit and a semi-sweet thing going on.Well worth trying again,and thatnks to Drew for sending this brew my way. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2004

Pours a hazy tarnished brass body and a massive cumulous nimbus rain cloud of a head. The nose is vast notes of wheat, yeast, lemon, and a touch of coriander. Reasonably tasty treat here; a nice freshly cut wheat field, nice use of grains, citric lemon, but not astringent, lemon grass, small note of basil & coriander, and a hint of green beans. Medium palate, lemony and yeasty wheat finish, Quite Nice, Thanks Drew!
Paid $2.79 for a 1 pt, 6oz bottle.
Clody pale... looked light while I poured, but looks more like smashed banana water now that it's in the glass. BIG frothy head.
Slight banana smell, slight "beer" smell.
Going in, it tastes nice: banana hinted, etc. However, that aftertaste rolls around, and it tastes like I just took a big bite out of a candle. Kinda waxy, yucky bitter... maybe I got a bad bottle, but this still is far from drinkable.
