Pretty beer, great head, hazy gold, OK lacing. Aroma was mild and centered on clove. Flavor was lightly wheaty, some clove, and a not so enchanting pencil lead finish. Faintest hint of lemon as well. Not bad, but the yeast esters were simply too restrained.

Bottle. Yeast, malt, banana, apple aroma Orange yellow color - cloudy with small head. A well blended mixture of wheat malt and banana/clove. A bit watery. Nicely drinkable but could use a more intense flavor.

Hazy amber with frothy white head. Yeasty aroma with notes of citrus peel and caramel. Thin and watery with lively carbonation. Sweet and spicy flavor. Nothing special.

Had this at the corkscrew tasting in Urbana Illinois. For a Hefeweizen this was pretty good but I just cant get into it. Mostly because I just dont ding the Hefe’s. Quite a bit of banana. so thats pretty good I guess

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy pale yellow body with lazy carbonation and a tall head that - - that disappears more quickly than I’ve seen on a hefeweizen before! It has a delicate aroma, grassy fresh with a mild lemon twist. The banana shows up for the taste - and it’s an old banana at that. Cloves make a brief hello. Very clean finish with perhaps a drop of lemon to cleanse the tongue. Acceptable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy yellow pour-- like you’d collected a soft, golden ball of peach fuzz and packed it in a glass. head as white as a our national rotunda, and it laced in great dreamy sheets that comforted the weary eye. aroma is a woodshop of dank lumber, sawdust and fresh varnish. blogs of yeast slumped like sunken vessels on the bottom of the bottle, and sent up a scent of clove cigarettes, mildewed documents, with green bananas and brown apples. begins as a moderately sweet and thin-bodied drink, with bright carbonation, but dries out quickly with a pronounced vinegary component amid a very woody oak-apple flavor and a metallic citrus finish. this is like a very well made movie, but one in which i don’t really identify with the plot or motives of the leading characters. good acting, well Scripted; and, while one can imagine a well meaning yeast lover dragging you to see it, it didn’t really light my fire.

Pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head. Very wheaty aroma with hints of orange peel, clove, and a light caramelized malt hint. Taste is citrusy and bready, light caramel notes, then finishes off with a light floral hopping. Very dry and crisp, with a aftertaste that reminds me of the smell of orange peels.

huge, soft rolling white head, nice and tight. plenty of tiny carbonation fill the caramely wheat colored body. Aroma is prevailed by wheat and bananna, accented by clove & a bit of grapefruit. classic wheat beer! boy do I miss home. flavor shows a surprising grainy/flaked barley character. toasty. effervescence delivers the lfavor to all corners of the mouth, a bit of cloying holds it there. becomes sweeter and more wheaty as it warms up, blending pleasantly with the spice and fruit aromas.
