Yeast Flavor (bananas and cloves)

I had the great pleasure of having a summer wheat ale (several actually) at the Red Hook Brewery. Was told that the yeast produced a banana and clove flavor. Any one know what type of yeast would provide that flavor to a home brewer?

For those flavors, look at the German Hefeweizen yeasts.  Something like Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Weizen...

Wyeast 3068 Weizen yeast.
I ferment both Hefe and Dunkelweizens at 63/64 after pitching at 60 and let it ramp up to 65/66 after 3-4 days.

Yeah what he said
