4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Porurs smoothly w/ a thunk like good beer should. Huge golden to white head. Initial hoppy smell followed by fruits and cereal. Cloudy but not murky composition. Clear enough to see bubbles rising. Very prounouced sweet banana taste. Also some apricot, rich heavy cream, and fresh dough. Very appealing mouthfee. Smooth like a glass of cold milk. What little aftertaste there is, is very pleasant. Not the typical hefe, but very very good in it’s own right.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 Plastic sample cup at the Penn Museum. Wheat and spices. Beautiful, even in a little plastic cup. Taste is fresh grass, mild sweet citrus with a foamy body. Not as pasty-wheaty as other wittes I’ve had. Worth another try. 4/1/06 - Tried again and rated the same. Cloudy tea with a glacial head. Thick champagne with a full mouth. I like the way the citric carb cuts through the wheat body to make for easy drinkin’.

(500 ml bottle) Pours cloudy pale grayish yellow with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, citrusy. Poor spotty lacing. Mouthfeel full, pretty smooth. Flavor is wheaty malt (with the glue-like flavor quality I associate with wheats) with a citrusy tang finish. Nice, refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a very cloudy gold with a thick foamy white head that left little lacing, but floated on the beer as a considerable head. A sour lemony smell veiled a more hidden yeasty sweetness in the background. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a citrus tang to it. The finish is mildly bitter that does not linger but leaves your mouth watering with its tartness. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, thoroughly enjoyable.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Poured murky pineapple gold into a footed pilsner glass with a rapidly diminishing 3-finger white head. Very nice color. The nose is almost all DMS with a little bit of sweet grain and a faind whiff of banana in the background. Sweet graininess at first sip immediately overcome by strong DMS. Medium-long finish with banana and sweetness, a little butter. Very refreshing with a crisp, lively mouthfiel. Thankfully, the DMS flavor fades rapidly after the first sip. Overall, not as good as Weihenstephaner but better than any other bottled hefeweizen I’ve yet tried.

Nice fluffy head with a golden, cloudy body. Tasted fruit & citrus above everything, with it all being underlined by thick yeast/wheat taste. Very nice overall.
