This one so far is tied with my favorite hefeweizen to date. I love getting this from the brewery. Dry Dock has a lot of good beers, so I don't get this one as frequently as I would like.

Fantastic amazing beer. On tap at the brewery, possibly the best German hefe I’ve ever had. Huge banana taste! honcho (2) - indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2011 does not count
Aroma- Huge banana maltiness dominates. It just has this very nice balanced aroma reminiscent of banana bread. Cwrw42 (51) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Appearance- Nice light gold color with translucent like cloudiness once the yeast was roused from the bottle. Great lacing on the pint glass as the beer was consumed.
Taste- Balanced and very similar to the aroma. Bready malty banana goodness with just barely enough hops to balance.
Palate- Very easy-drinking and refreshing. As it warms up, more bready banana comes out.
Overall- Excellent example of the style. Great balance of banana esters and maltiness with just barely enough hops to give balance. Great beer for doing anything in the summer.
A good example of the style, my sample (bomber) was cloudy and had enough colour to it to suggest the presence of a little dark munich or crystal malt. He nose had the expected and desired banana and clove characters indicating that a true bavarian yeast was used. Mouth feel was appropriate, bready yet refreshing with a nice malt balance. Eminantly drinkable, easily passes the four pint test and one I will come back to.

Great summer beer - would pair well with grilled fish, seafood and salads.
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 Draft at the brewery. Nice yellow hazy pour, cloves and some banana. Spice notes on tongue, medium body. Clean palate, dry on the back of the tongue. I am drawn to this delicious beer. bcasadei (4) - Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2010 does not count
Banana and bubblegum aroma, golden, cloudy appearance with white foam head. Banana flavor with a hint of clove. I’m not usually a fan of wheat beers, but I would drink this again. tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Well I’m on my 3rd growler of this stuff, as if thats not sayin enough. Here we go, as the description says huge banana on the nose, classic hefe color, thinner mouthfeel and a perfect carbonation, at least for my tastes. For the style it close to perfect IMO, when your not looking for a hoegarrden beer that’s heavy on cloves, this is awesome. Try it if you can! agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Aroma - heavy banana, vanilla, faint clove; ads135 (5064) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 22, 2012
Appearance - golden, very hazy, fluffy head, excellent lacing;
Taste - slightly sweet banana front, clean wheat back, mild notes of banana and clove throughout the finish;
Palate - smooth for the style, nice body;
Overall - quality brew, well built in all areas and very drinkable.
Better than average hefe. Typical hefe, but less watery. Has hints of banana, spices, and, of course, wheat. Tried at the brewery on my way to New Mexico.
