3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Tons of wheat flavor in this Hefeweizen, while bananas, citrus zest and herbal hops complete this flavorful pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A white sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-This is very flavorful and rich for a Weizen, which might lessen drinkability a bit.
-The second half of each sip is hoppy and bitter.
-This could be more refined.
On tap at their stave-like bar.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Nice citrus aroma with a one finger white foam. The taste is also a crisp citrus aroma that goes over t a almost too mutch spiced weiss. Feel some cloves in the aftertaste. Not too bad but not my first choice

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap@Amundsen, Oslo. Creamy white top, leaving fine laces. Hazed, bronze colored body. Discreet aroma of soft wheaty malts and herbs/mild spices. Barely any fruit esters. Medium sweet, fairly clean, wheaty malt body. A light lemony fruitiness, and a good amount of herbs/spices. Lively in the mouth. Medium full. Light soapy endnotes. Went well down. A decent Weizen, without standing out.
