Scipio (999) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours a bright, hazy golden with a medium white head that quickly fades. The aroma is what is expected in this style. Happily, its done well here. Wheat, banana, spice, lemon, yeast. The taste is slightly tart and slightly sweet. It essentially parallels the nose. Heavy in wheat and spice, still plenty of banana, some bread, lemon, and lesser orange. Some floral elements are found as well. Aftertaste is a mild and lingering duo of banana and lemon. Lighter in body, smooth in texture, and softer in carbonation. This one goes down really well. Id find it hard for someone not to like this.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Draught pint at the Olympic Tavern in Rockford, IL, August 10th. Hazy gold, with a big fluffy head that dies quickly, forgotten and unloved...banana and bubblegum, just a hint of clove and allspice, some graham-cracker notes, sweet and charming but not terribly original...a bit too dry for the style, or for my taste for the style anyway (I notice Ive mentioned this a few times lately; maybe this is something American brewers still have trouble with too often), a touch of sourness (apple-cherry) thats ok along with the sourdough yeasty texture...strong carbonation, and just a little more watery than I can easily forgive. Not terrible but a bit of a disappointment.

jcr (2691) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Draft. Hazy light gold body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of toasted grain, banana, bubble gum, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Banana and light clove taste. Solid take on a German hefe.

Bottle from Julios. Poured into a tall weisse glass. A slightly hazy light orange color. Not cloudy though. Thick white head settles to a thin lace. Classic banana and clove notes. Body on the thin side. Quite tasty and refreshing.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is banana, cloves, and flowers. Taste is a little sweet. Kind of vegetal finish... Not in a bad way. Light mellow hoppibess. Ever so slightly sour at the finish. Pretty nice.
