3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a yellow color with a nice white head and left no lacing on the glass. Very clear with nice carbonation. This beer represents what I think a hefeweissen should be. Aroma is fairly normal for what you'd expect from a hefe, but a little stronger. The flavor was very smooth and enjoyable. Very wheaty and a bit sweet with a grainy feel.

Nice white gold beer with a great foamy white head. Looks like a Hefeweizen should, muddy. I smell vanilla, citrus, bubble gum, banana. Nice flavor, much like a belgian white, slight citrus flavor, apple peel, leading to a very mild slightly dry finish. Quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 (Bottled) Opaque yellow-orange with a medium, foamy, lasting and lacy head. Fresh aroma of vanilla, dryish banana, and yeast. Some witbier character, too. Banana-fruity, dryish flavor with a strong vanilla feel and some lemony floweriness. Medium-bodied, refreshing palate with fizzy but soft carbonation. A real summer thirst quencher, somewhere between Schneider Weisse and Hoegaarden, with a twist of Liberty Ale. Should appeal to women as well. Definitely among the very best Hefeweizens out there.
(Bottled, rated 1/24/2004, was 8-4-8-4-16=4.0) Yellow, muddy color. Small, mostly diminishing, white head. Heavily yeasty aroma with vanilla, close to white wine. Sweet and acidic flavor, quite acidic finish. Medium-bodied with soft, dry and oily mouthfeel. A very enjoyable and complex weisse.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 I’m not that big a Weisse fan and I didn’t find the aroma of this stuff to appealing,but the taste was surprisingly good, banana, lemon hints and it didn’t leave that oily feeling on the tongue. This one I would recommend.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Wow. Very Nice beer. Great bananna taste. Dominated by citrus. If this beer was a little bit stronger it would have been a perfect five

So far my favorite bottled hefe. Has some hints of banana and it's crisp. Good taste, refreshing.

I had this with Christmas dinner, and was impressed with the color, malt/hop/spice taste and champaign like dryness. Highly recommended.
