On tap at Mr.Dunderbak's in Tampa. In a weizen glass the beer was a hazy brown color with a thin white head that still left a little bit of lacing. The beer had a sweet malt aroma, with a little spice. Nice sweet malt taste, some citrus, and a little clove. Comfortable, easy drinking. Enjoyed it.

Since the location where I had this is not listed yet but it has to be brewed at one of the brewing locations so I'll go with this one. It's a pretty thick tan amber with a modest white head and similar lacing. The aroma is clove and light banana and some sweet malt. The flavor is firm clove wheat, bread and subtle citrus. It's a well carbonated brew with a good feel that goes down easy. A very solid, refreshing brew.

On-tap at the brewpub. I wasn't blown away by the other GB beers I tried, but this was a pretty solid option. It seemed to take inspiration from weizenbocks, with occasional dark fruit notes. Otherwise there a big sweet banana (like when a banana has black spots) taste along with a bit of cocoa, rum, and raisins. I'd order this again.

Poured into a tall pilsener style glass. Beer has a nice 3 finger head that holds pretty weel. Beer is dark brownish-orange in color. Ample carbonation continues to feed the head, looks delicious. Strong banana smell is tempered by a sweet malty nose along with some spices . . can't wait to drink it! Taste does not disappoint. Extremely smooth beer with hints of banana, clove, toffee and some fruit. Nothing overpowering in the taste but an amazingly well balanced and complex brew at the same time. Could drink quite a few of these and will continue to order them when I visit the restaurant.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. A hefeweizen with lots more chocolate malt, nothing wrong with that. An above average mouthfeel with bananna consistency and taste. A good dunkel, good looking with lots of lace. Milkshake, though taste is on the sweet side and no complexity.
