2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy peach gold pour with a thin soapy, white head. Aroma of wheat, raw yeast, green banana, and cereal grain. Flavor is loaded with raw yeast and cloves up front, some banana and a little odd, green wood tartness. Light to medium body with a slick entry light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and dry, borderline astringent, but somehow slightly slimy and slick finish. All around not very good, it tastes like it’s pulled out a primary fermentation tank before it is done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a bell glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
A: Pours into the glass the color of heavy clover honey, an orange-amber cloudy brew with bubbles continually streaming up from the bottom. No real head forms to speak of, nor any lacing.
S: Fruit esters leap out at the forefront, banana and peach, with some clove and coriander spiciness towards the end.
T: Pale bread with the spices and fruits as promised by the nose, swirling delicately across the tongue. There’s a bit of a sharp edge to the flavors, a citrusy acidity.
M: Heavily carbonated, and quite so, this beer is otherwise relatively light in body.
O: Overall, a decently executed hefe, with the expected flavor profile. The carbonation is a bit on the higher side.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Wow. This brewery makes some horrendous beer. What the fuck. You can’t even make a halfway there Hefe and you have the gall to push this on the public? Putrid disgusting aroma. Fermented garbage juice. Tastes like a bad saison mixed with a hefe...not quite as off the chain bad as the aroma would suggest. Wow. I really hate this brewery. Horrible. Avoid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a Weizen glass. Aroma of spices and banana. Somewhat of a murky golden color that pours with a three finger head but quickly dissipates. Taste was somewhat sweet and spicy. Feels like a light body beer with bubbly carbonation, with a bit of mild bitterness with the finish. This beer is okay for an American produced Hefeweizen but doesn’t really stand out to me. I may revisit this brew down the road.
