Pours cloudy orange/gold with large white head. Strong banana aroma and flavor. Hints of yeast and clove. A little sweetness. Good mouthfeel. A nice wheat. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Deep amber-colored, murky, with a large white head. Aromas start delicate and dry, then open up to full-on yeastiness... bread dough and over-ripe banana with mild moldy notes. Smooth flavor, moderately sour and bitter to start with light acidity and bitterness to end. Held a creamy texture with a dry finish. Good Hefe.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 Pours a hazy golden with a thin foamy off-white head. Nice blend of sweet banana, soft wheat, and mild spice. Medium bodied with a very soft mouthfeel and lush carbonation. A great hefeweizen that I last rated on 8/18/2005, with same score. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Pretty boring though certainly unoffensive wheat. Flavor has a little lemon in the finish, mostly just yeasty. Little nose, palate a tad watery, appearance typical. ryananderson (118) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
500ml bottle. Aroma is light hoppy and wheaty with a good amount of banana, especially as it warmed up a bit. Average size think white head with most lasting to the end. Colour is light gold and cloudy as expected. The banana flavour is well balanced with a slight sweetness and light to moderate bitterness. Good light-medium body mouthfeel - probably from the suspended yeast and wheat. After finishing this bottle I wish I had bought more especially on a hot day like today.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottle (500 ml). In my Hacker-Pschorr glass. Poured an opaque, very hazy, lively juicy orange with a large white foamy head, nice thick drapes of lacing. Aroma - oh yeah, it’s wheat-y! - of coriander, clove, sharp,ashy hops, lots of fruit essence (citrus, banana - these are esters?), maybe a bit of candyish malt. Taste - mildly spicy, the hops are there but restrained, enough lemon to make me think someone squeezed a slice in while my back was turned (not the case), again strong on the fruit essence as above, couldn’t say there was malt flavour, but it balanced over to the sweet side. Very juicy and a bit acidic mouthfeel, definitely a beer to consume many of on a fine summer day. SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 20, 2005
1pint 0.9 oz bottle( October 2003) Only $2.29 +tax & of course CRV. Aroma is a welcoming of bubblegumm, spice, clove, wheat, and perhaps malt as well. Created a thick yet soft pillow of head and it sat gently over a gold crystal clear beer. The flavor is rather bland, but it does contain some tiny signs of bubblegum, sourgrass and lemon squeeze. It’s okay, but in my opinion falls short from meeting what i expect in a hefeweizen, especially a German import.
