3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Winking Lizard, served with a lemon. Hazy orange/yellow color with a medium thick white head and thin lacing. Aroma of yeast and spices. Light-bodied and well-carbonated with fruit, wheat and banana flavors. The finish is fruity with a bit of malt. Hefeweizen is not one of my favorite styles but this beer is well done.

Bottle. Hazy pee-yellow brew with thin head. Lots of lemon - but short on banana in the aroma. Delicate flavor, very pleasant acidity, hints of bread.

Hazy gold beer. Poored a big head but it disapated...not a strong aroma but solid clove/spicy taste....

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer held a cloudy, wheat-colored body with tiny floatables under a recurring white head. (After the pour, I was called away for a bit then sampled it at room temperature.) A banana background to the aroma with a frontal acetone-assault of lemon nail polish remover. Bitter and sour in flavor with light acidity in the finish. After-effects were interesting with a thin mouthfeel and a buttery aftertaste with roof-of-the-mouth chalkiness.

Banan and apricot aroma. Hazy orange appearance. Sweet, yeasty finish. Overall a nice wheat, with a lot of different hints of spices.

Pours a thick, rich gold. Taste is an immediate rush of wheat, hops, and banana. Lemon is not needed, for this provides the added sparkle usually sought after with the said fruit. Nice clove aftertaste.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with a good size white head. Strong clove aroma with some banana and citrus. Flavor is also dominated by the cloves along with the wheat and some banana.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Light and sparkling with a banana and musty yeast nose. When someone says Hefewiezen, this is the beer I think of. Lightly cloudy yellow with a thick white head an light banana malt body, this brew is the perfect hot-weather brew. Spicy clove aftertaste.

BIG puffy white head. Cloudy. Not much aroma. Sort of disappointed in this one which I had high hopes for. Not much bubblegum flavor but a healthy amount of spicy yeasty banana flavors. No citrus flavor at all. Bought two bottles. I’ll drink the 2nd(obviously) but there are better hefes out there. This one is most likely 2 and done, unfortunately. I really wanted to dig this one.
