Aroma is strong toffee and light wheat and spices. The flavor is toffee, wheat, citrus/fruit and a mix of slight tart/sour and spices in the finish.

badgerben (5058) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Courtesy of Skyview. Clear golden color with a large rocky head. Tart lemon and old banana aroma. As I started drinking it, I got the distinct impression I was chewing on a banana. Wheat and very fiant clove, but as Guerde said, this is a banana bomb. Definitely tastes like almost over-ripe bananas. Not spectacular, but certainly better than the 3.25 its got here.

Guerde (1297) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2009
(bottle from Skyview) Pours a hazy gold with a large white head that sticks around, but settles to a fine film. A surprisingly good aroma of dried banana chips and cereal, along with a bit of vanilla. This aroma is very sweet and estery, with a touch of pear and kicks of clove showing up too. Gets a bit musty as it warms. The taste is really sweet too, and is quite a banana bomb with some bubblegum as well, but the beer finishes quite crisp with a tart spike of lemon peel right upon the finish. The mouthfeel is lively and appropriately substantial for a better than average hefe. This is a really good beer that would be a great drink for the summer months. and I dont know why but it is incredibly underrated. Thanks Bob!

From a 12 oz bottle. Hazy orangeish yellow with an thin white head. Aroma of banana, clove, yeast and spice. Taste of banana, yeast and spice. Drawback is it’s a little watery but overall a better than expected hefe.

On tap at the Green Bay location. Hazed yellow with a white creamy head. Bananas and clove are all over the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel with lots of banana, a little lemon and clove in the finish. A hefeweizen that’s heavy on the banana and clove but decent for what it is.

notalush (5855) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2008
The least favorite beer I had here - it had the look, though - very hazy gold/orange, with a frothy, lasting head - lemony aroma, with strong yeasty qualities - bready, yeasty, earthy - understated banana flavor (which is good in my book) - a bit of grainy character - the flavors wheat usually imparts werent that easy to notice - light and easy drinking, just lacking a bit of character.

When I opened this beer, the aroma of wheat and honey poured out immediately. After the initial taste I noticed the banana undertones which were very pleasent. This is a classic german style wheat beer, it wasnt as sweet however.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow-orange color with a fluffy white head. Pretty standard hefe aroma with banana, light clove, and a bit of yeasty bread dough. Delicately sweet and light to medium bodied. Ample carbonation. Tasted of banana, clove, and a hint of caramel. There was also a pleasant fresh cereal grain note that extended into the finish. Nice.
