On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy light yellowish gold with a white head that sticks around for a while, the aroma was pretty weak for a hefe, a touch of banana and clove, the flavor is weak as well, the spices and banana come through but it just feels really weak and watery compared to other nice hefe’s. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Draft @ Carlyle. Pours a cloudy yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of banana, clove and wheat. Taste is about the same. Pretty good Hefe. Absolutely a great summer beer. nuplastikk (6634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy orange-brown-tan. Medium off-white head. Soft carbonation, a little watery. Sweet, with some orange-banana tones. Smooth, medium bodied, not much depth. OK, rather unimpressive. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2008
On tap 10/11/08. Pours a clear yellow with a solid white head. Aroma is a very nice banana and clove flavor with a bit of wheat pulling up the rear. Flavor has a heavier clover flavor with a banana undertone, great med-high carbonation which leaves great lacing on the glass. Very easy to drink.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/20/07: Pours a hazy light bronze with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma boasts sweet bready German wheat and yeast along with mild earthy clove and citrus. Body starts with a touch of lightly sweet wheat, good fullness and a bready yeasty finish, but not as crisp and flavorful as others.

In a pint at Carlyle. Good body with scents of clove and banana. Pleasant grainy flavor. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2006
Pint at the brewery. Aroma of banana and clove with a nice twang to it. Very cloudy yellow with a white head. Flavors of bubblegum, banana, malt, spice etc... A decent hefe that doesn’t taste too much like fake banana candy. Medium body with a creamy texture. SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Cloudy kinda yellow in color with a slight head that left fairly good lacing on side of glass. Nose is mostly bannana with some fruit and grains. The taste at first was some wheat then to bannana then more to some barley. As the glass warmed the bannana became very present and almost too dominant. Very drinkable and pleasant.

Mostly translucent pale yellow in color with a fizzy body and thin white head. Aroma is bananas, pepper and cloves. Some lemon accents, but a fairly sweet, subdued and enjoyable whiff. Some harsh lemon acidity leads the flavoring, luckily transitioning to crisp lemons, bananas and cloves. Acidity and pepper manifest in the finish. Fair, but could be better.
