3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark cloudy apple cider color with a fruity scent. The fruit continues into the taste with a crisp wheat flavor which finishes with no bitterness. Seems like a fairly hardy beer, which I like. Overall, a very good wheat that I would get again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, banana scents, light acidic taste, a little bitter. A good wheat beer. And anyone that says otherwise is a crazy nut.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a nice copper tan with just a hint of fog and a carpet of solid white microbubbles. Cloves abound, mingling with just a slight hint of bubblegum. There’s a distinct apple cider type taste to the intro, setting it up for a subtle sour middle, and a peppery clove finish. This has an interesting taste, though the cidery taste is a bit overpowering compared to the other things going on.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of banana and cotton candy. It is a darker wheatbeer, witht the typical protein and yeast derived cloudiness. Flavours of yeast, cotton candy, cloves and bananas are decernable with cotton candy predominating. It is sweeter then I like them, making it slighly thin on the palate. I prefer the cleaner, clove predominating weissbiers like schneider weiss. This one is closer to Hacker Pschorr.

Ever notice how all these German Wheats are freakingly similar. LIke they have a big pot that they draw them all out of then put different labels on them.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma, lots of nose. Appearance is that of water coming out of rusty pipes. Nice sweetness to the flavor, and a very pleasant finish. Palate is good, but a bit watery. My overall impression: a good beer. There are definately worse, but there are a few things that could use improvement.

It looks really nice! Hazy orangey/amber with a beautiful foamy head. Aroma of yeast, wheat and bananas. Spicy and wheaty flavors leading to ripe apples.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Right behind Schneider in the Ur-Weisse style. Cloudy dark amber color this a lasting foamy head. Tends to lean to the more spicy aroma (cloves and slight cinnamon). Some banana phenols as well. Yeast and spice flavors blend well with the wheat and malt sweetness. Finishes quite clean and refreshing.

Aroma of yeast and fruit (apples). Cloudy brownish color, nice head, tasted of apples, some banana, and spice. Sweet yet very refreshing and delicious. A very impressive beer.
