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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Yellow-gold with a moderate white head that diminished mostly leaving little lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit - banana and papaya - mellow with yeasty notes as well. Flavor is also fruity and slightly tart in the finish with some spiciness evident as well. Medium light body and mellow carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Darkish yellow gold with the expected haze. Cereal like nose, like cream of wheat. Sort of plain tasting, a little tangy but not much lemon, bannana or clove, maybe a little diacetyl. Sort of dissapointing.

hazy medium golden, head is off-white, quickly disappearing. aroma is quite tart, yeasty and maybe oxidized. flavor is quite vinous and not hefe-like at all...fruity, and buttery...has chardonnay notes all over it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A large sized white head with fine sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body had very little carbonation, yeasty, hazy and a yellow hue. The aroma was malty, banana, spicy and clove. This beer had a sweet, banana and spicy taste to it with a smooth and watery mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with sparse lacing. There are better German Hefe's out there in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body starts out as a light hazy yellow brown color until the yeast begins to pour in and darken it to a more yellow brown color. There is a small amount of yeast floating in it but the bottle is a brown sediment that really colors the brew when the yeast is mixed in. The aroma is a pleasant yeasty doughy malty one and the mouth feel is tingly with a smooth malty feeling to it. The flavor is malty with dough and yeast. A smooth drinkable beer that can easily keep one drinking with friends at the local Gasthaus.
