Sampled from growler courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a daker and cloudy brown color with a very small sized white head. Aromas of bananas, bubblegum, and some citrus. Tastes of wheat, lighter bananas, cloves, and citrus. I found the tastes to be on the weaker side, especially compared to the aromas. egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Poured a hazy brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, clove, bubblegum, and caramel malt. Taste of more bananas, and caramel malt, tart wheaty citrus, and a funky, dry yeasty finish. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Thanks to egajdzis for picking up this growler. Pours a hazy brown orange with an average off white lightly lacing head. Aroma of banana, wheat, clove and lemon. Flavors of the same with some roasted malts in there. LilBeerDoctor (4147) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at Stewarts. Pours a cloudy orange/brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of vegetal notes, clove and spices. Flavor of those same notes, lots of spices and vegetal notes. I didn’t really enjoy this.

Poured from a fresh growler into my weizen glass, courstesy goodgrief/doulos31. Aroma was roasty caramel, firm bananas, sweet bready yeasty elements. The flavor followed, a tad on the sticky side, some hoppy elements in the beginning (floral works) that faded as it warmed. Chocolate works its way into the profile with roasty elements supporting it all. A fairly boring take on the style, but decent. Mouthfeel was a little undercarbonated, slightly sticky, kept honest only by the roastiness when all was said and done.

Eric’s growler. Cloudy chestnut body with a fading off-white head. Big banana esters plus cloves, chestnuts, and sour plums in the aroma. Flavor reminds me of sautéed bananas plus dark fruit and nuts. Balancing sweet malt and medium tartness. A solid dunkelweizen with good depth.

Growler from Stewarts. Murky brown color, smallish head. Aroma was full of bubblegum. The flavor was loaded with fruity/perfumy sweetness that seemed almost out of place. Light clove notes over a wheat base. I don’t know, for some reason, I wasn’t really digging it. GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2009
On tap at Stewarts. Poured into a pint glass. Light brown in color, small head. On the nose a small hint of banana. Taste is wheat, sweet bread, yeasty and banana. Rich in texture, sugary sweet. Overall a beer that I enjoyed. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma of clove, citrus, hint of bubblegum, earthy hops. Flavor sweet with the citrus and bubblegum, banana comes into play for me here. Rather heavy in the mouth. Just ok. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 15, 2009
Straight from the growler during eagles game. Aroma was of caramel, bananas yeast. Flavor was much the same, sticky and floral hops, some rootedness as it warmed. Not bad but a little to sticky for my liking.
