First impression (smell, looks and taste) isn't great, but if you stick with it the rewards are there. It wouldn't get many takers at speed dating, but might do alright online. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint on tap at Basement Brewhouse, Bankstown. Pale yellow beer with thin creamy white head. Medium carbonation. Laces well. Nose is spice and caramel. Spritzy mouthfeel with light body. Hints of banana and spice with a lightly bitter finish. Drinkable but uninvolving.

Really sweet nose, apricot and lavender, so clear and no hint of bubbles, watery with remnants of soaked banana lolly flavour. Don’t think I could down too many of these, though it is crisp there really isnt any roundness to it.

330ml bottle. Pokal glass. Typical of the style with some banana and cloves. Not a hugely flavoured beer. Still a nice drop.

Not much fruit in the aroma, but heaps in the flavour. Lots of banana. Goes down very smooth.

Maracuja05 (1333) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2016
[backlog] 02-02-15 // bottle in Sale Motor Village, Australia. Hazy orange. Medium yeasty, some banana and clove. All in all average Hefeweizen.

3.2
Pyobon (1449) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2015
(Bottle) Clear golden yellow with tiny loose white head. Pleasant aroma - bananas, grassy hops and hint of cardboard. Light bodied and rather fizzy. Fruity start of bananas quickly replaced by citrus for a rather thin tart mid-palate, developing some peppery notes than evolve into a bit of bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, easily drinkable, unexceptional.

StevieT (2015) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2015
From a bottle. Not bad at all, the usual banana and clove present, good example of style.

2.7
anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity wheat malty spicy aroma. Fruity wheat malty weak spicy banana flavor. Has a fruity wheat malty spicy finish.

2.2
Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
330 ml bottle. Unclear orange yellow, healthy off-white froth settles and lasts. Aroma has lots of clove, some yeast. Taste is soft and bland wit malt, hefespice, creamy vanilla banana, citrus hints. Too soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Odd and not particularly pleasant. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
