Tastes very much like a belgian wit. Hazy golden colour and a nose full of flowers and citrus. Th flavour is very refreshing, slightly sour with notes of citrus and spices.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: hazy, lemon-rind-yellow hue, with a towering, snow white head.
Aroma: super fresh! Ahhh!!! Lemony, soft, luxurious, delightful!
Luxurious mouthfeel, at first, until I realize that I’m drinking the foam. As for the actual beer, smooth, but complex, and delicious wheaty texture. Just enough grit and resistance to keep the tongue busy and happy.
Though the body has plenty of substance, the overall nature of this brew is light and breezy. Citrus flavor continues through and is felt long through the satisfying finish.
No lemon needed here, it’s plentiful in this beautiful brew itself ( and is also extant in the Thai shrimp pad thai that this blissful weizen is helpful to wash down).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical Hefe apperance, cloudy golden body with a massive white head. Aroma of biscuits, malt, some clove like spices and some sourish citric notes with some light banana. Very well rounded taste and smooth mouthfeel. Light citric crispness leads to full malty and wheat body, light sweetness and banana near the end. Finishes up with a light crispness. Nice hefe.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This heffe-weizen poured to a very large dominant head and was quite lively and bubbly. It has a hazy golden yellow coloring with a fair lace around the glass (although the head died quickly). The smell was kind of a fruity/citrus with a hint of banana. Quite aromatic. The taste was slightly sweet and had a dry finish ? with a little bite. Not very strong or distinctive flavor though. It is a drinkable beer, but I got bored quickly.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a foamy white head on a hazy golden body. Heavy yeasty and wheaty aroma, actually too heavy and cloying. Wheat, yeast and citrus flavor with obvious banana notes. Foamy mouthfull. A nice, easy and smooth weissbier.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, at Muggs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY.
Rustic unfiltered brown colour. Aroma is strong yet approachable with bubblegum and banana notes. Then comes the flavour, well the aroma doesn’t prepare you for the sharpness and astringency of this beer. Sour and sharp the flavour packs quite a punch.
