If it smells like banana out of the air lock will it taste like banana? My second hef and I over hopped the last one so missed on a lot of the flavor. So I am curious.

From my little experience, yes, it will taste like banana. Did you use WLP300? The warmer temperature it ferments at, the higher banana flavor you will have. Read the comments here.

I just emptied my banana hefeweizen keg last night - so good!

Sense of taste has so much to do with smell that naturally you may perceive the banana taste..

In my experience the flavor isn't quite as "strong" as the scent.. and the esters may fade with time.
