Bottle. Pours with a very murky golden orange hue with a large, bone hued white head. Good lace and pretty decent retention. Aroma from a mile away is ripe banana. Upon closer inspection: ripe banana, vanilla, 4VG (clove) - lighter end of things, cardamom, and quite a bit of a grainy wheat character. Esters and a bit of fusel alcohol. Bready and biscuity, light caramel. Besides the somewhat harsh alcohol, this smells quite good! Flavors fall a bit short. Lots of vanilla and banana esters. Sharp, somewhat solvent and lightly peppery alcohol notes. Really nice bready and perhaps slightly too caramely/caramelized notes. Minimal phenol. A slight bitterness towards the back of the tongue in the finish that I cannot place (doesn’t seem to be hop based). Creamy carbonation, somewhat light bodied for what I was expecting. Warming. Alcohol is just a too harsh on this one. Beautiful yeast notes otherwise and a very nice malt character. Very close to very amazing. Good as it is.

Bomber from the Roseville BevMo. Pours orange amber with a slight off-white head. Roasty toasty wheat/malt with a bunch of citrus and yeast/spice. And banana, damn it. Not getting identifiable clove tho. Very full bodied. And the clove is quite intense, followed by a lot of slightly over-ripe banana. We got enough of those around our house, I have no doubt. It’s rich malt with clove, banana and some burning bitter - which might be the clove. Just when I wondered whether these guys had lost the magic touch - bam!!!!!!!! Forgive me for doubting. Brilliant ale.

hazy golden with mininal lasting head. nose of cloves more than esters. thick mouthfeel before some tangy whear flavors and a lot of clove esters, the residual sweetness is appropriate for the abv and style, while the alcohol is subdued due to an excellent ferment. very nice and immediately drinkable for such a huge beer

Pours very hazy orange/ golden color. Distinct smell of wheat and sweet scent I can’t put my finger on. Taste is rich of wheat and felt thick and syrupy. Lots of flavor of wheat, caramel hint and maybe even banana?? Maybe that’s the smell I can’t figure out. Overall was impressed

AmEricanbrew (6954) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Hazy light orange color/ ivory head. Mildly tart bready wheat, banana, caramel, spicy peppery clove aromas. Medium body. Rich dark bread, fruit cake, banana, clove, yeasty malty flavors--most tasty

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2011
There are just way too many fragrances in this brew to identify them all! The same goes with all the flavors!! Dry, spicy, and fruity-sweet from start to finish. Love the light alcohol fragrance/taste throughout. This brew has a great ’zing’ on the palate on the finish from the alcohol that is very pleasing and warming. Very flavorful and one I highly recommend anyone to try!

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate bubblegum, light banana, clove, and a touch of citrus. It pours a hazy, not quite cloudy, golden orange with a small off-white head that quickly settles to a thin film. The flavor starts with orange and lightly tart lemon. There’s a moderate caramel presence in the middle. The finish has moderate bubblegum, light banana, and light clove. There is no sign of the 9%. Medium bodied moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s a tasty Weizen Bock, but the caramel flavor mid-pallet is a little too heavy for my preferences. Definitely worth drinking again, but tone the caramel down a little it would be top notch in my opinion.

rollinsr (817) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 5, 2011
Lots of banana-clove esters typical of Belgian yeasts on this one. Nice amber body with almond-colored head. Taste is slightly nutty and biscuity as the initial banana-clove notes subside. Nice smooth finish that provokes the palate for more of the same intoxicating malty-clovenana-goodness.

arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Hazy orange in color. Great hefe nose. Full of spice, yeast, citrus, biscuit, and an acidic twang. Big citrus, orange, lemon, yeasty esters and spice, fresh bread, mild alcohol, and a decent spicy hop bitterness on the tail-end. Trailing bitterness and acidity. Medium-medium full body for a weizen style. Loving this for $4.50 a bottle.

dogfish120love (1364) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Aroma consists of clove, banana and earth. The appearance is a hazy "Bert" colored orange. The flavor is rather sweet, with some notes of bacterial infection shining through. The palate has only a slight tinge of carbonation and is medium bodied.
