On tap, hazy golden pour with a white head. Aromas of yeast, banana, and subtle spice. Flavor is malty upfront with banana notes in the finish. Very drinkable. Patrickctenchi (6693) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Draft: (re-issue at 5.3%/36 IBU....at brewpub)
Very cloudy, light yellow-orange with a small, off-white head.
Banana, light wheat, orange aroma.
Taste is sweet..banana, wheat malt, a bit of bubblegum...very little spicing.....a light white peppery-ness.
A little plain, but solid....not over-spiced like so many others. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013

At $2.00 a pint on Sunday afternoons you cannot beat the prices at the Upland draft room. Among the ten taps I went with one of the last pours of a decent hefeweizen that was on its last legs. Assuming you are still sitting on bottles drink them now. If they are still on the shelves wait until next summer to grab some fresh.
Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy rose gold body was wrapped under a dense clean white head. Banana nut bread, sweet malts, and lemony notes highlight a fresh feeling beer. It isn’t really at either end of the hefeweizen spectrum but squarely in the middle.
Flavor / Palate - Chocolate chips, lemon zest, and orange glaze start with a mild impression. As it moves into the throat it adds some doughy textures and a dash of honey. Almost like a meal in a glass it has a filling presence. With no glaring flaws or major strengths this beer is worth a tick if you catch it on sale.
Draft to taster at Upland. Labeled simply as "Weizen" on the draft board. Looks solid; transparent for a heft though. A very slightly hazy gold with ample white head at dissipates into lacing. Smells of dough and heft yeast with mild notes of clove and banana. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Tap at Brewhaven. Sweet banana, wheat, and citrus aroma. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Banana, wheat malt, and citrus flavor. Medium body. I was looking for clove or coriander, but just didn’t get it from this beer. Good, but didn’t blow me away.

Flight pour on tap at the Indy Tasting Room (Indianapolis, IN). A new rate. Pours a richly hazed golden hue, like a lemon milkshake. Healthy bright glow, good haze, and big cakey bright white head that dies to a thicker film, good lacing throughout. Aromas are rich touches of banana esters, some apple and pear, with firm lemon, touches of spicy clove. Flaked wheat, bready malts. A vibrant banana life comes in and takes hold, touches of lemon and other fruit. Initial is creamy and smooth, light bodied overall, but on the more girth end with banana, a bunch of apple. Gentle lemon, flaked wheat and bread dough. Firm growing estery banana, touches of pear, with gentle spice, more apple and crisp malts into the middle and backend, apple and banana take over, touches of lemon, gentle grassy element. Doughy and crisp cereal malts. Finish is mellow sweet, a touch tangy tart fruit, apples really take over with firm banana, a rich fruity element. Still, quite a drinkable wheat beer. A unique spin. Nose is a bit muttled but flavors are good and the beer is quite pretty. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2012
On tap at Bloomington pub. Pours gold with little head. Nose is strong spices and various bright citrus with background notes of bananas and pears. Flavor is again spicy, lightly citrusy, light bananas, pears, and apples. Also some light vanilla in the finish. Drinkable. Low in malt richness but flavorful. Heavy on the spices. Moderate carbonation. Liked it. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, Bloomington. Fairly nice pour, cloudy deep golden with a decent carbo level. This one’s a money-maker in this heat for sure. All in all it’s a more or less competent take on the style. Bright hops, quaffable and smooth mouthfeel, a bit of yeast and banana (not much evidence of spice). Average.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a cloudy yellow-straw color with a decent head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Nose is some faint banana and even fainter clove along with some light grain. The taste is slightly yeasty with a bit of straw and grain. Light feel with good carbonation. Comes together in the end, drinking fairly well.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewery. Pours a heavily hazed golden with a white head. Cloves are the main aroma with just a bit of mustiness. Flavor also leads with cloves and is slightly tart with wheat, bubble gum, and a bit of sweetness. A solid hefeweizen.
