I had this at Global Brew. Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Taste sweet, fruity, banana. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

12 ounce can into weizen glass, canned on 721/2015. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness, yeast spiciness, and wheat tang on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth and creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a great hefeweizen. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2007
(Tap) Pours a cloudy golden color with a billowing white head. Aroma of banana, yeast, and spice. Distinct clove notes. Also notes of wheat grain and bubblegum. Some vanilla in the aftertaste as well. The factor that sets this beer apart, however, is the palate and mouthfeel. Fine carbonation introduces a silky mouthfeel at first, but then the beer really has a thick, oily finish. I thought this was an excellent hefeweizen! drdisque (886) - Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012

12 oz. canned 08/25/2016. Foggy, golden pear colored with a thin film of foam. Nose has banana, citrus, bread and a touch of clove. Flavors of spicy banana bread, light lemon juice, earthy-spiced pear and caramel. Finish has some crisp wheat and spicy dryness. Near-medium bodied with medium carbonation and a good drinkable balance. Nice American replica of the venerable style.
