3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The yeast attenuation appeared great. Hints of citrus and banana esters dominate this beer. Although I am not particularaly fond of Hefes, I feel as those that are will want to try this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy/cloudy yellow with thin, fluffy, dissipating head. Smells of mild to moderate caramelized banana, brown sugar, lemon, a subtle bit of evergreen and grain. Flavor is of clove, grain, slight banana, bit of lemon, mild piny bitterness. Texture is also grainy. Fails to really distinguish itself within the style. Not bad, but totally not interesting.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a gently hazed but mostly clear yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Big banana yeast, soft wheat. Sweet, bananas, gentle and subtle soda flavors, a bit too sweet. Easy bitter finish with yeast and wheat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ ABC Harrisburg. Cloudy gold/yellow with the tiniest head. Typical German Hef aroma of banana, tiny bit of clove and wheat bread. Taste is the same with sweetness that is balanced by some hop bitterness and a light sourness. Medium body, a smooth mouth feel and a lightly tart finish. Pretty good.

Had on draft at the gettysburg location. Pours a hazy dark yellow with manilla bubbly head that dissapates quickly. Aroma very spicey yeast and tad bit of lemon. Flavor is very very doughy with lots of spice. Overall, wasn’t a fan.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Spicy aroma, bread, yeast, nutmeg. Smooth body gives way to typical clove/spiced taste, good representation.

this was their seasonal hefe at gettysburg... hazy brownish yellow with a white head and some spotty lacing. the dominant aroma is sweet fruit... banana and orange along with grainy/wheat. lightly sweet on the palate... flavors of banana, orange, spice and a savory note i attribute to the yeast. dry finish with lingering banana. medium to full body, soft texture and creamy mouth feel.
