3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma very initially had a sweet rown sugar characteristic. This dissipated in a yearsty, banana, estery, sour aroma with hints of pineapples. Wood chips, wood stove fire notes as well. Remarkably aromatic! Pours a mildly hazy dark garnet copper/amber color with a big light tan head. Start is somewhat sour and a little astringent. Slightly thin and malty middle. Yeastly banana chocolate malty finish. This is a good beer, but unfortunaltey, the taste doesnt totally jive with me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange or light brown color.fairly decent off white foamy head that lasts.Malty ,yeast aroma with hints of hops light spice and posibley citrus.Highly carbonated malty sweet taste with a mild hit of spice,wheatmild hops and some bitter orange although it seems a bit light on the bitter scale.Very light after taste mildly sweet with a wheaty taste that is followed up by a few hops and spice.the feel is thin and highly drinkable.Theres not a whole lot of flavor explosion in this one,but it is nicely done and by seeing that it hasn't been rated in nearly a year i would say if you can find it get one.Pretty decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a rich opaque brown with a quickly disappearing bubbly head and high carbonation. Aroma of banana and clove. First sip is stronger than you’re ready for, with flavors of banana, clove, and earth. Everyone says chocolate... did I taste chocolate? I need another one. Great brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from State Line. Looks like I enjoyed this one more than most. Hazy coppery ruby body with huge khaki head. Aroma of fruit, British hops, slight tannins, caramel malt, with the flavors being the same plus the addition of some richer caramel, cabernet red grapey, and slight cognac hints in the mid-palate and finish. There was a good amount of black sediment on the bottom of my bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours with a copper tan color with a slight
hint of cloudiness. Brings a thick head and slightly
spiced smell. There’s a good bit of clove and spicy
test, not a whole bunch of hop bitterness. Easy going
down, little bit of aftertaste, a touch
of spice, then it fades away...interesting for a Weisse.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown color. Large white foamy head. Aroma is malty, biscuity, hints of banana, clove and caramel. A light to medium bodied German Hefe. Malts are fruity and sweet. Nice banana and clove flavors. Hints of caramel. Hops are slightly spicy. A nice light and refreshing hefe. The taste is maybe a little watery, but it makes up for it with a nice crisp dry finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially huge, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (bread, caramel, toasted grain), trace yeast (cobwebs), with notes of brown sugar, banana, clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Decent dunkelweizen, nice aroma and balance, less fizzy than most, great appearance. Just a tad bland, though, and not crisp enough.
