3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle, no date code.
Pours out like a hazy yellow sunset, light orangy yellow at the top of the glass, fading to pale straw towards the bottom.
Head is large, thick, creamy and long lasting. As it slowly fades it leaves a a thick pattern of lacing.
Aroma is banana pudding with a vanilla wafer crust, a touch of pepper.
creamy smooth doughy mouthfeel.
Flavor is spicy first, (pepper and clove,) then a touch lemony sweet in the middle, banana and pepper on the finish.
It was a warm day today and this was the perfect refresher.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty decent hefe with all the characteristics I would expect. Nice hazy yellow body. Little disappointing in the taste and aroma though. While the cloves and citrus and bannana were coming through, I found this hefe watery and very low in taste. Still good, but I expected a little more from this brewery.

Avg Weizen pour,cloudy with modest head.
Nose is of mild vanilla frosting with hints of lemon. Medium bodied. Tastes pretty much how it smells with a hint of sweetness in the finish. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy gold with a white foamy head. Sour dough in the nose with lemons and spice. Banana esters. More of the esters in the flavor with some wheat and lemons. Smooth, light and refreshing. I like it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy bright yellow, big fluffy white head. Nose of rich sweet malts, citrusy crisp hops & nice wheat esters. The flavor is highly carbonated & savory with typical & traditional hefe ester. Delicious example, welcomed change of pace for sure.

Bottle. Pours a light orange-golden color with a typical tall slightly off white head. Light banana, clove and vanilla aromas...typically hefe. Fruit gummy and dry all in one shot....lotsa wheat and cloves. Nice yeasty character. Quite good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy pale amber with a big fluffy white head that rapidly diminshes to a thin persistent cover. Lots of yeast in suspension. Aroma is pleasant fruity and yeasty, maybe a little musty. Flavor starts a bit tart, but quickly smoothes out to a silky, light, refreshing delight. Fruity and floral, the yeast reminds me of the strain used in the Unibroues. Tasty, clean, a bit dry as hefes go, and highly enjoyable.

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.
