Hazy dark amber colour and a footy, chocolatey nose. Some light apple and banana notes, a fair bit of acidity, but mainly stale, lifeless rudderless malts. Poor example. Tmoney99 (15135) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Bottle from Indiana. Hazy copper color with a medium head that diminished slowly and produced good lacing. Good spicy fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Moderate wheat, spice and fruit flavor with a average sweet finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Cloudy amber body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, clove, banana. Taste is medium sweet, clove, banana, some lemon. Light-medium body, some effervescence, very refreshing. shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle. Clove and over-ripe banana aroma. Tannish yellow color - cloudy with little head. Mildly sweet banana, clove and wheat malt flavor and a light lemon finish. A very well crafted beer that is comparable to its German brethern. b3shine (9281) - Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2013
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.

12-ounce bottle. Thin and soapy, light head that fizzles, fairly bland-looking amber body. Undistinguished in every way, though, other than the soapiness, not an obviously flawed beer. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
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. Patrickctenchi (6812) - 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. jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Hazy amber colour with a dense, fast-dying tan head. Aroma almost purely of yeast. Some spice and coriander seed comes out, but a bit of sweetness is also noticed. In addition, I definately smell some hops in the nose of this one! Medium to Full-bodied; Spicey sweet initial flavour with some cloves and wheat popping through. Aftertaste actually very mild and subtle-only characterising a bit of the wheat and yeast characteristics. Overall, a very nice wheat, although the beer is a bit dark (just as the Commercial Description notes) compared to others in the style. Overall, definately worth trying and is a fairly good representation of the style from Americans! I was lucky enough to get this twelve ounce bottle in a recent trade with BigBadBear63 and sampled it on 18-December-2003. Thanks again Mike! BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2003
On tap at Upland- Unfiltered brown "apple cider" look with a little head and some lace. Banana, sour apple, spicy, and lemony aroma. Traditional hefeweizen taste: wheat, yeast and lemon detected. Smooth on the palate with a lingering yeast aftertaste. A nice version of an hefeweizen.
