I generally prefer wheat beers, especially with banana. This beer is easy and light to drink with a pleasant, sweet flavor that doesn't overwhelm. It is smooth without froth distracting the feel. The smell is consistent with the taste; no surprise shift from the beginning to the end.

Pours out an extremely cloudy honey color. Head is white and dense with phenomenal retention. Not seeing any lacing.
The nose is full of clove, wheat bread, fresh banana peel, a hint of bubble gum, and yeast.
Up front in the taste you get some lemongrass and bread. Cloves come in through the middle and linger a bit. Finishes with a banana sweetness.
Mouthfeel Is light to medium bodied. It feels very soft with a nice touch of carbonation.

Hazy gold in color with a nice white foamy head. Lots of bubble action. Aroma is a pleasant mixture of caramel & banana. Taste is slightly salty with a hint of sweet. Very nice flavor: banana, caramel, apple & honey. Thin & well carbonated. Very thirst quenching & refreshing.

A: Pours with a chilled haze, a straw/yellow color. A dense white head forms with excellent retention, that lasts and lasts. Some lace left behind as well.
S: Husky, zippy wheat snaps up front. Light peppery spice, and more lemon rind than banana aromas. Just excellent.
T: Follows the nose, with husky wheat that snaps. Light peppery and clove like spice, tart lemon rind, along with doughy malts. Which all makes for an excellent experience.
M/O: A light to medium body. Perfect carbonation that is effervescent, crisp, and ultra smooth at the same time. Supremely easy to drink. All day with this.

An excellent example of the style. I had an old review from maybe 8+years ago here with about a 3 score. Which just shows not only how tastes change, but how stupid reviewers can be when they first start out. I love this, and has been a great staple for me for a long time now.

Got on tap at Bar Munich at Champions' League final.
Good beer, beautiful smell full of bubble gum, banana and wheat sweetness. The taste didn't hold for long though, later sips weren't as good as the first one even though it was only a few minutes.

Half clear/half cloudy golden color with a beautiful yeast veil and moderate activity. Slightly foamy and creamy white 3-4 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with poor legs and swirl reaction. Flavors of wheat, sweet grains, caramel, lime, apples, banana yeast, coriander, and floral hops. Slick and smooth medium to full body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, bready and moderately fruity, a bit more spicy with balanced hops. Nice intensity and quite fresh. Highly drinkable and filling. Classic style representation, overall excellent quality craft.
