3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Cloudy yellow with a frizzy, short-lived head, this has a fairly spicy aroma for a hefeweizen. The flavor echos the aroma, banana, cloves, white pepper, a twist of lemon. Fairly refreshing, if not great, wheat.

Until swirling the dregs, this beer poured a bright dark yellow with a massive rocky head that did dimish to a medium thickness blanket. Quite a bit of sediment came out after mixing a little beer at the bottom and re-pouring. Effervescent banana aroma with subtle clove hints and some musty horseblankety yeast. Clean refreshing taste that included sweet, estery banana and some soda water. The tiniest hint of bitterness. Light to medium body that drank very well with lots of carbonation and a clean ending.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick white head and thick lacing.
Aroma is yeast and fruit.
Flavor is fruity, wheat..not bad but I’m just not a wheat beer fan.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Hazy translucent gold, prodigious white head, yeasty aroma, sour-smooth wheat flavor with green banana, smooth vanilla, refreshing but more silky than crisp.

Murky, bright gold in color. Fizzy, lively head. Smells of yeasty sourdough bread, borderline sour milk. Also smells slightly of a banana/orange juxtapose. Taste is crisp and refreshing. Sweet vanilla and cloves. Caramel nodes and traces of some citrus elements, namely lemon and orange. Great carbonation balance. Creamy head stays afloat throughout the entire beer, which contributes to an undisputedly awesome feel on the palate. This is by far the creamiest hefe I’ve ever had. Damn, I’ve had a great streak with hefes as of late.

Bottle. Poured a huge white head that lasted longer than a pornographic sex act. Huge aroma of citrus and tropical fruit...even notes of cheeries, slightly sour. Perfect champagne gold color. Taste is fruits and honey, lingers smooth and long. Somewhat weaker taste than that perfect aroma. Late tingle on the palate of spice, but very subtle. Almost perfect hefe, just lacks a bit of yeastiness for my taste.

Very nice hefeweizen. Pours a hazy golden color with an inch-thick white head. Aroma of bananas, maybe a touch of clove. Flavor is classic hefeweizen, yeasty, malty, thick on the palate ... very tasty brew.

Bottle shared with jercraigs. Cloudy dark yellow colour, with big fluffy white head. Very strong aroma of banana with a little something sweet in it (kind of like a banana split) - very appealing. Crisp, yet full bodies, this beer has flavour to no end - totally consumes your tastebuds with a perfectly balanced blend of banana, malt, and bitterness. Slightly yeasty as well. Very enjoyable.
