Keg at the brewpub. Hazy orange, large creamy white head, good retention. Aroma of banana, orange, yeast, wheat. Taste is banana, citrus, clove, wheat. Medium bodied. Solid. rgf001 (324) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Clove but little banana. Too hoppy for a hefe. Dry finish with bitter aftertaste. Ok. nuplastikk (6358) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Tap at RBM. Extra cloudy yellow tan body. THin white head. A really nice, fresh Hefe, with a pronounced banana tones, more so than typical, has that candy runts aftertaste. Lemony clove balances out the sweet creamy malt. Bold and zesty. arminjewell (9689) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma is big banana, touch of clove and some wheat grain. Taste is some lemon, citrus from the wheat, leading into sugary artificial banana and some spice, with a sweet finish. Not bad, but the banana yeast didn’t really do it for me.

On draught at the Rock Bottom brewpub in downtown Milwaukee, WI. Pours a semi-hazy golden colored brew with a decent size white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, banana esters, a hint of clove, lemon zest and honey. Taste is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, banana type yeast, and a touch of lemon. Finish is slightly metallic and semi-sweet with a lingering banana and yeast aftertaste.

RockFest II, Chicago, IL: This was called "Heartland Hefeweizen" on the program. It poured a hazy straw body with a modest frothy head. The aroma had a lemony tartness from the wheat and some ripe bananas. Not much spice to the flavor, but it added some dough and fresher bananas. The finish was lightly tart.

On tap at Rock Bottom Milwaukee. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up toasted bananas and lemony notes upfront with a little bit of bready backing.. didn’t really pop, but it was aiight. The flavor had a bready and banana base with tangy lemon surrounding.. candied banana rose toward the back, leaving a dry, grainy finish.. OK flow to it. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. drinkable, but very, very average.JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 17, 2008

On tap at RB – Milwaukee as "Heartland Wheat". Poured cloudy medium golden with a shorter-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet banana and spicy cloves with primarily pale malt backing. The flavor found dry spices and grassy bitterness over banana and pale malt sweetness.. ugly and cloying at the back. Lighter-bodied with heavy spicy and tacky malts on the back.. dry, not-so-refreshing finish. Not good.
Golden color with a moderate white head. Pale malt aromas enhanced by light banana and mild spice. Flavors are rather thick with malt, honey and heavy fruit syrup. Too thick and heavy for a refreshing hefe. Some decent flavors get drowned out by the syrup. keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2008
On tap at brewpub under name "Heartland Wheat". Very tasty and refreshing wheat with sweet banana and clove notes up front. Wheat backbone was strong but unimposing, creating an airy quaffer for an afternoon at the restaurant. I’ve recently gotten into hefeweizens, this is a pretty good beginner brew for someone like myself. rederic (3340) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
Cloudy yellow hue, with a white head, spicy yeasty, bananaish, fruity nose, with a wheaty, grainy, oatmeal note, with a light cinnamon, honey accent, and ripe apple fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, bananaish, spicy character, with some honeyed wheat, pale malt accents, a good cinnamon-like ripe apple pie note, a bit lactic too, leading towards a fruity, wheaty, spicy finish.
