Citrus aroma with some cloves. Cloudy bright gold in the glass with a thin head. The banana flavor comes through most in the flavor with the usual cloves and citrus. Tasty and refreshing. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the McKenzie Brew Pub. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Musty aromas of yeast, cloves and lemons. Tastes of yeast, bananas, cloves and citrus. Ended with a light tart lemon taste. egajdzis (6589) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, and light cloves. Taste of yeast, bubblegum, tart wheat, and more cloves as well. Thin, oily mouthfeel. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Growler in the parking lot after Old Dominion Beer Festival 2005... Clear, light yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Smells of grass, lemon peel and straw. Perfectly balanced flavor with sweet corn and lightly tart lemon. Obviously filtered with no notes of banana or clove. Short, crisp, clean finish. More like an American wheat than a German Hefe. Not great, but refreshing. Thanks go out to BuckNaked for sharing the growler.

Pours turbid yellow/gold, with medium fizzy head. Aroma of citrus, hops, cloves, banana, bubblegum. Tastes the way it smells, with more coriander in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Cloudy, very light yellow. Wisp of head. Nose lemon and yeast. Thin, with a bit of clove and bubblegum, not as much as it could have. Fair amount of lemon and is quite fizzy, kind of like lemon seltzer of some sort. More American Wheat than actual hefe. sloth (2906) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2004
served in a 12 oz pils glass. Medium sized white head, fair retention and lace. Hazy light gold color.Good Hefe nose, bananna, clove and malt. Light body, good carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Bananna flavors are subdued but there, not as much as i like. Good wheat malt , toasty flavors with a mild spiceyness. Nice Hefe. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Re-rate; Draught: Same as prior rating except:
Hazy, not cloudy. Flavor much different and less complex, with no bready malts etc. Pronounced metallic flavor. Quite sweet though too. Thin texture.
Draught (6/8/04): No head. Cloudy, hazy light-yellow body. Good lacing. Grainy, bready malts with spicy citrus, orange, lemon hops. Also tasted of banana, pepper, and coriander. Easy to drink. Lively carbonation. A bit sweet, but not undrinkable. Overall, the best beer I had here. 8/4/8/4/15=3.9 pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2004
On draft at Johnny Brendas. I'm leery of most US-made weizens: they just don't stand up against the mainstream German brands, but this one is true to the style. Served withOUT lemon, a great thirst quencher after an afternoon of dealing with a broken down truck.
