Draught at the brewpub in Las Vegas
Hazy dark amber color. Clean aroma of ripe banana. Sweet taste, mix of their Hefeweizen and Dunkel (caramel and banana) and this one as well is not much hopped.

Draught, GB Miami
Milky looking rich chestnut body with a thick head. Banana and marshmallow aroma. Sort of tart, with some banana and hints of chocolate. Kind of funky/sour note is a little weird, but otherwise a std example.

3.1
Sammy (12091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. A hefeweizen with lots more chocolate malt, nothing wrong with that. An above average mouthfeel with bananna consistency and taste. A good dunkel, good looking with lots of lace. Milkshake, though taste is on the sweet side and no complexity.

slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"kind of an odd mix of flavors that ends up working fairly well. like the spicyness and fruit in the aroma and flavor...a little on the thin and overcarbonated side which takes away from the whole just a little."

3.5
shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle. Sweet banana, orange, clove, and caramel malt aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with moderate head. Sweet banana-orange, clove and light caramel wheat malt flavor. Very nice - above average dunkelweizen.

3.5
DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle from Squires. Pours hazy brown with nose of banana, dark malt, clove, spice. Tastes malty, with banana, clove, spicy brown sugary, and caramel flavors. Solid balance and complexity but waters out a bit late.
