Unfiltered Bavarian-Style Wheat is an example of the consistency one would expect from a great German wheat beer. Thanks to our Munich-born weizen yeast, this unfiltered wheat ale has a fresh ripe banana flavor and aroma with a hint of cloves.

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sample poured from a 12 oz. bottle at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a nice, dull, cloudy gold color with a finger-thick white head. Looks unfiltered to me. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, sweet malts, honey, wheat, clove, and a grassy, earthy note that overwhelms the other hefeweizen notes just a bit. This smooths out in the flavor, which brings banana, sweet malts, honey, clove, dough, wheat, and cereal. Medium-bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Really nice German hefeweizen and a good sipper.

Strykzone (7182) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
12 oz. bottle. This pours an orange brown with no head in the tulip glass. The nose is yeast, cloves, and cloves and could be more genuine. The flavor could use some work, too. Powdery dried figs, bananas, and tangerines. Spices that are almost Fall but dont get there.A sourness permeates that puckers and clashes with the sweetness. Some beers just should not be put into production and this is one of them.

vyvvy (6311) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pour hazy yellow / orange with a nice sized white head. The aroma has bubblegum, candied banana, cloves and what seems like plastic or band aids. Medium body thats a bit slick and it has frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with a fake-ish banana flavor, brown sugar, cloves and a fully wheatiness. The finish is sweet and plasticy. A fair hefe, but it is better than most in the lower end price range.

hayduke (5138) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Sent to me by Strykzone in a trade. Poured a dingy orange with little head. Nose of cloves and yeast. Light body. Acrid mouthfeel. Flavor is "off" with a weird sourness that overwhelms everything else. Banana finally shows in finish. This bottle may well have been mishandled after leaving the brewer as other ratings show this to be quite acceptable.

Pour is a cloudy gold with a large white head. Aroma is ok with some banana and clove in there. Flavor is a little bit of a let down. Some cloves and a bit of lemon show up but nothing to carry this one over to the good side. Average at best.

It poured a dark gold color with a white head. The aroma was of bananas, cloves and some bubblegum. The taste was similar with a prominent yeast flavor, some banana, cloves, and the bubblegum flavor.

Bif (2183) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head that fades to just a bit of lacing. Aroma is primarily of fresh grain with traces of fruit and sweetness. Fresh grain taste with a mild trace of banana and citrus. Has a touch of bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nice beer for the style. Much better than I expected. A solid kick back and relax beer.
