Yellowy orange color with a frothy off white head. Nose of bananas, puffed wheat and baked beans. Flavors of banana, clove, puffed wheat and some berry fruitiness. Interesting take on the style. I just couldn’t shake the baked beans in the nose. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle from Beerman6686. Pours into a weizen glass, a hazy orange with some brown hues and a lasting thin head. A little darker than normal for the style. First aroma is of wheat malt, second is of banana and clove. Flavors of banana and bubble gum appear at first, with some wheat, maybe caramel malt - seemingly some toast - and a touch of spice. Rather carbonated brew with a bit of a warming sensation finishes with a nice wheaty crispness combined with fruity sweetness. A very nice hefe. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Nice pour, somewhat amber for a hefe, with a medium creamy white head. Really nice aroma for a wheat, can’t believe I can actually smell some hearty wheat malt, just the right amount of clove, lots of fruit and the banana is very faint. First taste is bitter and lots of alcohol followed by some spiciness, pepper and caramel ripe-banana. Yeasty / bubblegum finish. Lots of depth for a wheat. Balanced, but rather unique. Extremely smooth body and carbonation. This is a hearty wheat ale with a nice American twist. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden orange body with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, clove, lemon zest, and banana. Flavor of wheat, coriander, and clove. Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bomber. Courtesy of Alexsdad06, thanks Brad! Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sudsy offwhite head that disapated to a small ring. Nose of clove, wheat, orange and mild sweetness. Initial taste is of banana and clove moving into a more dominant yeast and wheat character. Finish is mildly sweet with retaining the yeasty wheat characteristics and mild hops. Palate duration is average. Light to medium body.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy no visible carbonation dark orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was malty orange peel and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and breads. An OK brew just nothing special. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle at Joes, thanks to someone. Very wheaty with some caramel sweetness. Spices round out the mellow flavors. I would like some more to rate again. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle, thanks to someone. Orange - yellow pour. Aroma is wheat malt, bubblegum, some clove. The flavor is the same, slightly earthy and some honey in there too. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Average wheat. Cloudy. Malty aroma with tastes of banana and slight cloves. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Solid freaking wheat beer with some banana/clove/orange elements but nothing extreme which makes for a well crafted and fine hefe. An easy session beer with a swig of hops, medium texture, and balance.
