Usually I'm against a fruity beer, but I make an exception for the banana flavor in this beer! It's a quality hefeweizen and the initial taste is incredible, as is the smell. I only wish we got it in bottles and cans in Pittsburgh! Please get on that. I get it on draft at a bar in southside all the time and I'm never disappointed. Light look and feel with a hint of banana smell and taste. My glass never seems to last long enough. A very enjoyable beer that I have grown a strong liking for

Growler

Pours a cloudy lemony yellow gold.

Smells like banana bread, walnuts, and citrus.

Tastes of wheaty malt, banana esters, some mild citrus and a hint of clovers.

Medium body with light tingly carbonation.

A pretty decent hefe, the taste and nose are interesting and a little strange. I'm not sure if I like this more or less than other hefe approaches. But its very refreshing and a good summer session brew.

First had: on tap at the brewery

This is one of their more popular beers, but honestly I didn't care for it too much. Still good, I just have to be in the mood for wheat beers, even fine hefeweizens. Pale straw-yellow pour, cloudy, with a puffy white head; decent retention and lacing. Light wheat essence in the nose, banana and clove typical of the style. More of the same in the taste, biscuity wheat, banana, clovey spice. Pretty light body, close to medium, fairly drinkable, just not for me on the day in question.
