I am brewing a simple wheat beer and am looking for a good yeast. I have used Wyeast American Wheat 1010 in the past and am not a big fan. I would like to try something different but keep it close to its simple style.
Just brewed a simple German Weissbier with it and it turned out amazing. Fermented at around 70F. The beer came out light and crisp. There is a note of banana on the nose but nothing overpowering by any means and it fades to a solid malt backbone.
Not that it would effect your recipe but I used some Wheat LME, aromatic malt and a touch of pale malt. Hops were kept simple with just an ounce or so of hallertau. Probably one of my best beers to date. I really liked what Wyeast 3068 did to the beer.
I am thinking about doing a wheat soon. I have allot if friends that enjoy the wheat style. I find that I am quite sensitive to banana and clove. Not something I really enjoy in any amount. I have found American Styles like boulevard and a local one from olde main to be tasty. Would there be any Wheat Yeast produce a cleaner profile without any banana or clove. Or would I be better off with a plain old 1056 American Ale.

Both those sites are definitely helpful. The only problem is that I am not experienced to know how the different nuances will actually taste. For example, I don't want strong banana flavor but I am sure it isn't that strong.
