Bottle from trade with shigadeyo. Pours a hazy amber hue with an large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good wheat and banana aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium well balanced spicy flavor with a good sweet finish of moderate duration. Good soft drinkable beer. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2002
Hazy gold color with a thin white head. Slight citrus aroma. A little better than the average German Wheat (I thought it was on the same level as Weihenstephaner) but I am still not a big fan of the style. It is too wheaty/citrusy for my tastes. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2005

12oz bottle acquired in trade with DavidP (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of bananas, cloves and some citrus. Tastes of wheat, bananas, spices and citrus. Thinner body that is typical of this style.

(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a descent-sized white head. Aroma of whole grain cereal and bananas. Similar flavor. Very tasty! Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2006
Thanks to FlyingBison for coming through on this. Like an American pale wheat that has a sourness, only more aggressive wheat and carbonation. This is not a smooth hefeweizen BVery (11461) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Hazy hellow pour, big white head. Yeast and citrus, banana and clove. Solid hefeweizen. jercraigs (11087) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2005
Bottle courtesy of JPDIPSO who plucked it from my wishlist into a trade. Why did I think this was from Washington DC? Oh well. Fairly clear golden body, with a white head that starts out well but diminishes quickly. Sweet fruity aroma has a belgian yeast quality to it. Sweet flavour with more muted fruit and malt. Some hops in the finish. More ’belgianness’ in the aftertaste. Average palate. Decent beer, but not much of weizen. Doesn’t seem to achieve the status described in other peoples ratings.

12 oz. bottle from my wife’s aunt in Madison. Pours a mostly clear, bright gold with a thick, frothy white head that takes a long time to go down. Aroma of bready malts, wheat, banana, clove, straw, and grass. The flavor has a lot of lemon, with bready malts, straw, banana, apricot, and peach. Just a little clove. Light-bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel that finishes dry and medium carbonation. Not quite on style but good.
