3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5ooml bottle, wiezen glass...pour carefully! crazy racing carbonation, nice frothy head. Smells of bananas, lemons, with a faint allusion to sweet basil...Light and refreshing with its somewhat tart/acidic finish(although I don’t feel it is pronouncedly acidic)...it doesn’t offer me much in the way of pondering flavor, but this isn’t a beer to think about. Its certainly dry and bubbly, this is one to just gulp down. I’m not somebody who drinks wheat beers of any form very often, but I can see this coming in handy on a humid Nebraska summer day...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
White head, cloudy orangeish body. A sweet and sour aroma. The taste start slightly sweet and ends kind of acidic. The acidic taste dimishes though when the beer gets warmer. I’d try it again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow/orange with a thick white head. Great aroma of clove, banana and yeast. Flavor has notes of banana, lemon/citrus, clove, coriander, spices, wheat and yeast. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Great head retention. Nice beer but I would have preferred it a touch sweeter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great beer, and nice example of the style. It really did not seperate itself from other wheat beers, though. Nice light citrus taste. I’d drink it again.

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.
