This American version of a traditional Bavarian wheat beer is pale gold in color, flavorful and very enjoyable. Two row malted barley and malted wheat give it a crisp but layered maltiness with a light sweetness. Hand selected Spalt Spalter hops impart a bright finish and Bavarian yeast adds a special spiciness. Cheers! Jim Koch

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Found this in a drugstore on Manhattan only later to experience that it was at least 18 months past it’s best of date. Presumably this does not affect the flavours which I found extremely fresh and fruity as in the best German Weissbiers. Orangey almost amber in colour with a decent if not exactly overwhelming head. Excellent.

Syrupy floor polish nose and flavor, with a soft, smooth witbier flavor that make it’s not completely awful... fluffy marshmallow flavors, oily chemical scents and a resin-like coating of hop oil, as best I can desribe it... that typical SA flavor.

Boston Oktoberfest 2004. I enjoyed this. Wonderful banana notes in both aroma and taste, smooth and crisp, I regret not getting another pint.

Pours cloudy yellow with a nice head. Aroma is citrus and a little banana. Flavor is good. Nice; sweet, yeasty, with nice banana and fruit finish. A little more tat would be nice. A little light and watery on the mouth. A pretty good wheat for a large US maker.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Nothing special about this. A typical american wheat that was crisp with a mild fruity aroma.No cloudiness at all. I WISH mine had the big banana taste that others have noticed. All I caught was a hint at the finish. Drinkable but I won’t be buying again.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Tiny, departing head, amber color. Tinny, coppery, spicy aromas, slight citrus, a hint of anise...and BANANAS! Yes, the Southern Bavarian weizenbier style does have that banana/clove component, but the Boston boys stuck a whole banana tree in the mash! Flinty taste & texture, thin body, not much for the tongue to do. No yeast, either. I don’t enjoy weizens sans hefe. Actually, it says unfiltered, but I can neither see nor taste the yeast. Lousy finish. Not a good beer, at all. Yes, they have bananas, but not much more.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Pours pale straw, with good head and lace. Aroma of malt and yeast. Tastes weissy, with a yeast, citrus, fairly smooth finish.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2004
Might as well call this Banana beer. AFter the inital attack of banana, I thought this had a good taste. Fuller bodied than most wheat beers.

DYCSoccer17 (3706) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2004
Nose is extremely mild--basically non-existant. Pour is a hazy blonde with w a tiny white head. Start is sweet--lots of banana. Finish is smooth without much else going on. 1 dimensional.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 30, 2004
soft orange with a quickly dissapating white head. strong aroma of wheat. The flavor is weak and watery with hints of fruit.
