In a pub once, I had a waitress carefully explain to me that a hefeweizen had hints of banana because "they add banana juice to it during fermentation." {facePalm}

Speaking of banana juice I had a buddy that lived in Germany for a little while and he swore that he use to drink half banana juice and half franziskaner and swore that's how everyone drank it like that.

Idk man...that's a new one to me. I love Franziskaner. Midwest's PM Berlin Wheat kit turns out tasting like a cross between Franziskaner & Paulaner Hefe to my taste buds. Amazingly good wheat beer for the cheap price & simple ingredients. You oughta try it if you like either of the two wheats mentioned...

Yeah I've had franziskaner and paulaner and enjoy both of them. That's why I couldn't figure out why someone would cut it with banana juice.

I've had it that way in Italy and it is quite tasty. Really any good wheat beer and banana juice is great. 1/2 and 1/2 is a little much for my taste, but 1/4 to 3/4 is great.

I'm still stuck on the ... Head part of this thread, and the banana juice thing keeps putting me over the top.

I lived in Germany for two years and the local beer house would do that at lunch. It was more 1/4 banana juice to 3/4 Paulener.

Idk...They're ok with banana esters,juice might be a bit much to me. The cleaner wheats are quite tasty to me.
