3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Banana bread, banana taffy, perfume and clove with some strange chemical / glue notes and a lot of nondescript fruit (peach, nectarine, old orange, whatever). Thick, syrupy, sweet, a bit rough, papery, and a tad sour.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy yeasty aroma with coriander and lemon. the flavor is lemony, with some light sourness, coriander, and light spicy yeast. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2017
12oz can pours with a pale gold colored body that has a light haze and supports a tall off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet sugary malt infused banana, earthy banana, a bit of lime and stale hay to go along with a mild yeastiness at the end of the draw. The taste delivers loads of sweetness peppered with chunks of sweet banana and then balanced by a nice somewhat sweetened juicy lime like note. To midway it gets softer on the palate as the wheat kicks in and as the modest citrus like juiciness ramps up a notch or two. Pretty nice but overall too sweet.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bottle:   For a German Hefe this one has one hell of a quick fizzy head.   Otherwise, no lacing, lightly cloudy, looking like some dirty straw.   Pale bready nose, smells more like an American example.   Oh vay, a little tart wheatiness on the tongue, bready, but no real aspects of this being anything evenly remotely close to something German.   No banana, clove, or yeasty aspects.   Certainly wheaty tho.   Nearing the thin side for a wheat beer, not filling or heavy at all.   Finishes like a Birther finding out Obama is actually a United States citizen, unhappy and retarded.


2.6
wlajwl (6801) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2012
Aroma is spices and an off aroma, possibly old or oxidated. The flavor is citrus, lemon, bananas and a mildly tartness/sourness that lasts into the finish. Thin and not incredibly interesting but not nasty.

2.8
ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2016
12 oz can from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Hazy orange appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of bread, spices, herbs, banana, clove and hints of citrus. Similar flavor, a little dull, with an average body. Drinkable.

dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2010
This is a decent hefe. Not a lot of aroma, the flavor is mostly thin and indistinct. Nothing to get excited over.

2.4
thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clearish yellow with lasting film of white bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum, and lactic acid. Taste of watery very ripe bananas, butter, lemon and spices with a watery earthy finish. Not very good.
