I found these at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL for $2.99 each. 330ml brown bottles with a swing top cap and a freshness date stamped on the bottom of the back label.

The beer poured a cloudy golden yellow color and made a 1-finger white head that lasted a few minutes before settling to a thin white cap.. Lacing was minimal.

The beer smelled like a bowl of Wheaties with bananas on top. There was also a swweet buttery toffee aroma.

The beer was high in both wheat flavor and bananas but low on clove spiciness, although some clove was present. A sweet buttery toffee flavor was also present - like the center of a Heath bar. Hop bitterness was undetectable.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

This is a good hefewizen, but also a non typical one because of the toffee sweetness. I'd recommend it and gladly open a second one.

Pours a clear golden color with minimal head. I would normally expect the unfiltered look for this style, but this one looks rather pristine. The aroma is straight banana with some what malt to back it up. No hop presence to speak of. Taste is well balanced with lots of fruity banana flavors that are kept in check by dry wheat malt notes. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. Overall, a well balanced hefe with nice bright yeasty fruit notes.

Sampled tonight on 1/18/14. Had this one back in 2012 once before. Comes in a nice 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle with a ceramic stopper. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a nice hazy apricot in color with a thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing was seen. The aroma is of sweet grassy grains with a hint of banana and citrus. The taste was very pleasing and much like the smell with a slight hint of cloves for the finish. Goes down easy. Perfect carbonation. No harsh or bitter aftertaste and is one of the better German 'Hefes'.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a snifter.

A - A vivid wheaty-brown color with a medium head that laced the glass very well.

S - The smell wasn't too pungent. Hints of barley, wheat, clove, and other "warm" spices became prevalent from the get go.

T- An excellent balance of the clove and anise paired well with the IBU's the hops gave. Not too overpowering in one particular aspect. Carbonation was mellow, not too much of a mouth kick. Very enjoyable.

M- The mouthfeel wasn't anything to rave about. It's an excellent balance that doesn't leave too thick of a residue after drinking, nor gives too crisp of a feel from the carbonation. An excellent feel for a summers' evening.

O- Will definitely be buying again. At only $3 a pop, these easily became a staple for my summer drinking ritual.
