Tasted at Stone Brewery. Good aroma of banana and cloves, which are just as apparent in the taste and ends with a crisp finish. A good beer for the end of a hot day.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2011 From Bottle. Amber hazy body with a fluffy lasting white head. Ripe banana nose with bready wheat hints. Banana flavors in mouth with a rather acid finishing. Creamy and round, lacks some crispiness because of low carbonation. A well-done weizen for german standards.
Re-rate 2011: Improved carbonation increases crispiness and highlighs aromas. It is now close to the top of the weizen.

Second beer during Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Friday beer tasting of "Lawn Mower Beers." Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow brew with a thick white slowly diminishing head. Nice lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana, bubble gum, and citrus. Taste is very mild, medium creamy and soft carbonation. Finish is soft and dry with a slight banana aftertaste. A terrific summer brew.

These damn wheat beers...I don’t know..not digging them as much as I want to...maybe they’ll grow on me. It gets a 3.6 ONLY because it ranks fairly high in the separate categories. Something is just not making me desire them....maybe it’s the love of hops and malt...

Tap at the Happy Gnome. Cloudy golden yellow appearance with staying foam. Grassy aroma with some biscuits and citrus notes. Some brown sugar flavor alongside a lot of banana esters. Crystal clear and crisp palate. Easy and refreshing.
