On tap at Hinterland. Poured an almost clear pale golden with a short white head and sticky lacing. Aroma picked up sweet toasted banana and wheaty notes with a nice soft balance. Flavor was of sweet toasty bananas & light caramel with a touch of dusty clove and bubblegum through the tasty finish. Lighter-bodied and a bit spicy with very good balance. Enjoyed it. wlajwl (6737) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2016
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. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Dark straw color with a diminished white head. Light wheat and bubblegum aromas. Sweet wheat and orange zest flavors mingle with a touch of banana phenols. A cross between a Oberdorfer and a Hoegaarden White. Skyview (5907) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Picked up a 12-oz bottle from the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that totally disappears clean. Aroma of mostly corn grits, flowery hops with a touch of banana esters and cloves. Taste is semi sweet, medium bodied, very little carbonation with flavors of toasted malt, some bananas and vegetable. Finish is slightly sweet with a dry banana bread aftertaste. Nothing memorable on this brew. notalush (5866) - 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 weren’t that easy to notice - light and easy drinking, just lacking a bit of character.

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 it’s got here.

12oz bottle-A cloudy orange body with a small white head which has an aroma of wheat, yeast, and coriander. Taste the same. A great tasting weizen just like a true hefe. A great German hefe from a US brewery. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2008
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. 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.

The latest in a series of decent hefe’s this week. Banana dominates some faint clove but smelled fresh enough. Well bleneded banana and clove in the body.
