3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery. Thin light head, lovely cloudy, pale yellow colors, pleasant mild spice nose, thin in the mouth, but, with the usual, spice, citrus flavors. A very nice wheat, a style which is often too light.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appropriate esters, not much head retention, great body, great flavor: some banana, great citurs, and subdued clove. That’s the way I like it. carbo a bit low, but allowed the beer’s sweetness to show through. Overall a great beer. I had three.

as cloudy as a dank morning on the moors, this weizen is the soft yellow of oily grilled onions. i saw enough of the head to say it was white as garlic and in a hurry to get off the beer and vanish. while a headless murky yellow beer brings to mind a ballpark urinal in serious need of a flush, this beer makes up in personality what it lacks in looks. the aroma is a fetching kind of rich melange of banana chips, pencil shavings, citrus, morel mushrooms and raw potatoes-- plus i discern a beckoning note of alcohol. soft, medium-bodied, dangling vivid visions of wine-like peachiness and apples embedded in bulging fresh dough. a grainy sweetness is moderated by balsa-dry yeastiness and accented with clove. i liked it enormously, and was soon saying silly flirtaceous things to it, and making all kinds of promises i couldn’t possibly keep. i think the attraction lies in it’s resemblance to a mild belgian trippel i once had a wild fling with. an outstanding wheat beer.
