Wonderful creamy flavor with some banana, vanilla and spice coming through. Mostly clove though. Cloudy yellow in color. Nose is a bit spicy with more of the clove aroma shining through. Overall this is a pleasure to drink. It actually reminds me more of a wit than a hefe. Good stuff!

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap served into a weizen glass. Initially, I thought I picked up notes of blueberry, peach, and even some yeast on the nose, but after awhile, the standard banana and clove dominant, with a hint of lemon. It pours a hazy pale with a thick, creamy white head that retains well and leaves lots of micro bubble lace. the beer is a blend of medium-light sweetness and a very light bitterness along with a trace amount of sour citrus. The beer is light bodied with a thin, watery texture. It kinda has the feel of a watered down lemonade. Its very crisp, and clean with a low amount of soft carbonation - very refreshing summer session type beer. In the mouth, its mostly a banana and caramel taste that finishes with a faint orange rind and leaves a mild bubblegum aftertaste which doesnt last long.

Tap. A very nice hefe. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Nice strong aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The taste follows through big time. Great balance, with both the clove and banana yeast esters shining on their own. A nice lemony finish.

On tap at Disneyland. Pours a golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Good aroma of wheat and bannana. Very refreshing and drinks smooth. Very nice after a long hot day.

KUEric (972) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2006
On Tap: A very average hefe. Thought it was a good example, but kind of weak and sterotypical. Bannanas, wheat, cloves, bubble gum, were the flavors and aromas. I agree that it was drinkable but kind of boring.

Sampled on draught at the Hilton Anaheim. it hs a hazy pale yellow colour with a white head, and the aromas are tangy, with typical wheat beer scents. The taste is good and fairly typical of the style, with yeasty lemon notes and that distinctive banana and clove flavour. What makes this beer different is that the there is a bass note of vanilla to counter-balance the upper notes of citrus and spices. This makes for a really interesting and well-balanced beer, full of vivid flavours. Highly drinkable.
