This one is tough. I can't help but to feel I'm being over critical of the Funky Buhhda image, and that I probably look like I'm hating on hype. Oh well. My other funky buddha reviews will be much less critical than this one.
My least favorite Funky Buddha offering, and I generally really appreciate Hefes. Bananas all the way from aroma to finish. It's really overwhelming, almost like eatiing banana runts. Remember those? What I appreciate about FB is that they can take a taste sensation and turn it into a spot on beer. And though I didn't know it when ordering, I really didn't want to revisit my youth through runts candy. Beyond that dominant aspect--which resulted in a uni-dimensional flavor--the finish was extremely short. I appreciate hefe's, just not this one.

Notes from 7/2012
A somewhat hazy pale yellow pour with a thin cap of white foam. Huge banana aroma with just a bit of lemon. Taste is similar, with a touch of bubblegum thrown in. Definitely light in flavor and body, even for the style, which was intentional from what I understand after talking with the brewers. A slight tartness as well, but pretty refreshing overall.

Tap at Proof. Slightly hazy tan-orange with off white head, medium-thick collar. Aroma is really citrusy, I get some plenty of wheat-like grains, and some berry. Light in body, low carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, this beer fades quickly from my palate. Taste is pretty much exactly like the aroma.

Served on tap in a shaker pint glass
A - Slightly hazy pale wheat with 1 finger white head with good retention and moderate lacing
S - Wheat, banana ester, honey.
T - Nice strong wheat backbone with moderate-high banana esters, sweet honey, touch of orange, very refreshing.
M - Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp.
O - Great lawnmower bear, more banana in my hefe than I life, but overall though it had a lot of flair.
On a side note this is beer review number 200 for me on BA. Woot!

Very light orange/yellow color reminds me of a Florida sunset, which seemed appropriate. The head was stiff and thick but airy.
The nose was ripe with bubblegum-like aroma, yeasty esters, dry wheat, pepper corns, cloves and a breadiness.
The flavor replicated the aroma to a tee. The bubblegum is apparent but blends well with the wheat and bread like maltiness. The clove or peppercorn serves up near the finish.
The feel is dry and light and is an easy drinking beer but not overly thin.
Not a big Hefe fan but found this to be closer to a Tripel, and a good one at that.
