3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very light aroma and mild clean taste. More subtle in flavor than the bigger German Hefe’s. A friend of mine only drinks hefe’s and he loved this and took a few home with him. Easy to drink, but generally I prefer the bigger flavored ones.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Hi-Time. Hazy peach color with a decent white head. Aromas of bananas and wheat, with a hint of spice. Flavor starts with clove, a touch of citrus, wheat, then more citrus. Not getting banana, except for something like the strings from inside the peel. Finishes a bit dusty and rather dry. In the end it’s pretty much a wheat beer with some extras. Quite refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle and served in my Ayinger glass: Initial big foamy head which lasts for the most part, some lace, hazy golden hue. The aroma has phenolic notes of banana, bubblegum, wheat husks, biscuit, and a hint of butterscotch. No real spicy notes on the nose. The taste is a bit tangy and fruity at first supported by wet grains and wheat. Again missing most of the spicy qualities associated with the style. Seem sort of one note and less than impressed. The mouth feel is soft and watery. A poor example of the genre if you ask me. Disappointing.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very disappointing hefe in basically all areas of rating. The aroma is stale and hard to detect. There is no floral scent that usually dominates this type of brew. The appearance is poor at best. The lacing is no existent and the head disappates in seconds. In addition there is no carbonation to tickle the nose.
The flavor and palate is tart and flat.
Overall, I was extremely disappointed
