Pours a slightly hazey golden colour with a fluffy top. Sampled this two different ways. The first way was warmer then the second. Huge difference in everything. Fruity and bananna notes come out full force with the warmth of the beer (dur, makes sense). Pineapple and lemon zest. Aroma is super pleasent in every aspect. It’s so great to finally taste german brew that is so close to it’s style.
Tap at the brewpub. Light yellow pour with bubbles. Nose and taste is more grain and honey than it is clove / banana. Pleasant enough though. madvike (3260) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2011
On tap at the brewpub as "Badger Wheat" - Pours with a huge foamy off-white head with a clear amber body. A real odd nose, with more honey and tropical fruitiness than the traditional banana and clove. Pretty sweet. Taste is actually a bit grainy, with tropical fruit sweetness, a touch of sugar, and some noble hops on the finish. There’s noticeable graininess on the finish, and some floral hops, with a sharper finish as it warms. Not my favorite hefe. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2011
On tap at Das Bierhaus. Hazy yellow with a white topper. Aroma of banana, yeast, lemon and wheat. Taste is slightly sour with lemon, wheat and yeast and light banana and clove. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a very hazy very lemon yellow with thin white head. Aroma is nutty notes/almond mixed with lemon and bitter notes similar to the kind of citrus fruits. Flavor is tart lemon with yeast notes. Definite tart flavor. Body is creamy light with fair carbonation.

Tap. Pours a hazy sunshine yellow. Crisp wheat notes, followed by a bit of bitter citrus zest. Dry finish. Well carbonated. Mild banana notes. Lingering zesty finish. Light bodied. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Sampler. Aroma of banana, wheat, and citrus. Nice flavor, sweet and tart. A liitle bit more Berliner weiss than hefe. tennisjoel (1458) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2008
As this is one of my favorite styles, I tend to be fairly critical of it. Banana, clove, and bubblegum aromas with some faint lemon. Spritzy texture, highly carbonated. Filtered, which I don’t prefer. Fairly average hefe, nothing mind blowing. Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2008
July 2nd, 2008 Sample platter. Toasted straw or hay like aroma. With a white head that mostly diminished. Nice yellow brew with a slight hazyness on a count of the yeast. Medium body and nice carbonation. A great drinker. akevitt (97) - Valhalla, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2008

Draught at the brewpub. The beer had the appearance of lemonade. It was lightly carbonated with a moderate amount of foam. Banana, wheat, and yeast were present in the aroma and flavor. It had a banana/wheat finish. It was lighter on the palate than most hefe’s, but not in a watered down way. Very thirst quenching! I could drink this all day!
