Probably an old bottle that had also been frozen once or twice in the cooler at Buffalo Wild Wings in Noerthwest,IN. They aren’t the beer geeks that the staff in INdy are!!! Big lemony nose, but head wasn’t all that big. Some acidic zestiness (almost soapy) hides behind the big lemon/wheat flavor. I’m sure this is much better fresh, and correctly poured from a tapper!

Hazy lemon color. Thick head quickly disappears. Pretty much a standard German wheat beer, but with some tart/acidic tones. Fairly interesting.

This is your typical wheat beer. A cloudy light brown/tan color with a spicy smell. Taste is of wheat and light spice with an extremly full smooth wheaty finish. Overall, it is a typical wheat beer.

it’s true to the style, sure, but the chalky yellow pour isn’t attractive to me: looks like the glass was lined with vaseline, or a water sample from a cairo subway. the head gave it a fluffy white bib, but the foam’s half-life was about 11 seconds, so pretty soon it was just me and this murky and malarial looking fluid. fortunately, the aroma has only pleasant things qualifying for apt comparison, say, for example clove studded apple strudel, danish butter cookies drizzled with bottled lemon juice. frenetic carbonation scrubs each taste-bud up and down like granny’s takin’ ’em to church. then a tart yeasty lemon bath washes away any trace of whatever you had for dinner. great breath freshener:gone are garlic and cigar breath. quality product, but too much dry citrus for me.

Clove and floral aromas figure big in this one. The head is huge and the color alluring. Some samples had pronounced fruit--apples, banana and a little citrus. This was great with Sunday brunch.

Cloudy yellowish-golden hue. This wheat smells terrific. The typical banana and clove scent is there but there is also somewhat of an apple cider spiciness that gives this hefe great character. Taste is wonderful as well with a very fruity presence. This is one smooth German Wheat beer. Simply delicious.

A nice Weisse. Huge head took up most of my mug. Took several minutes to go down. Mine had a pale yellow color to it. A nice subtle banana flavor. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fantastic ’Chilled Hazed’, Golden-Orange color, the head is a ’Whopper’, white in color and the lace is significant. Nose is a tad yeasty, earthy if you prefer, citrus, malt and quite clean. Front is malt, the top light, the finish is acidic, dry, lightly hopped and a passable ’Beer’, but nothing to ’YELL ABOUT’. Ranks #565 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Pours a gold with slight reddish hint. White head with moderately large bubbles. Nose is very clovey, perhaps the most clove smell of any of the hefes I’ve tried. Taste is nice wheaty malt, perhaps a little less ester flavor than I’d prefer but still present.
