3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very slightly hazy medium yellow, nice head fades into a thin but constant veneer. Lightly lemon wheat aroma. Lemon and very faint clove in the mouth, with clove increasing some as it warms. Definite wheat flavor, but something odd on the finish as well, almost like anise, strange in this style. Carbonation a bit biting as well. Not bad, but not great either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 500ml bottle. Strongly yeasty aroma, plenty of dough, spicy clove and somewhat lighter banana with strong suggestions of lemony citrus and background honeyish sweetness. Thoroughly hazy golden color with a subsiding, foamy head. Flavor profile is lightly tart and citric up front, turning maltier and sweeter before a profoundly spicy yeast finish, lightly bitter and acidic with lasting sugary malts and peppery spice lingering long. Mouthfeel is quite bubbly and effervescent, body is medium. Seems to sweeten up significantly as it warms, so it seems preferable a bit on the colder side.

This was pretty good for a wheat, which is not my fav style. Trace of fruit on the nose, and taste. Was a bit watery.

man this wasnít that bad. I liked it more than most other wheat beers, ANNND it was ina plastic spit cup. I will try a full bottle next time, though their porter always wins the decision over.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a strong, vibrant head with little retention. Unfiltered? My piss is more cloudy than this, and I donít even do drugs. Aroma is light lemon citrus and slight skunkiness. Taste is initally nice and citrusy with a round, soft malt sweetness. Finish, however, becomes slightly metallic and sour/skunky, which really ruined what could have been a pretty good beer. Might pour it out.

I gave it a good swirl before pouring. Cloudy. Puffy head. Good bubblegum flavors. Itís no Live Oak by any means but a solid hefe, nonetheless. Iíd drink this one again.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice hazy orange/yellow body with a pretty foamy head. Nose-very medicinal and cardbordish. Taste-banana, clove, black pepper, light wheat, yeasty, and sour. Has an interesting sour finish that is unique and nice. The best way to sum up the taste is that it tastes like a thin sour beer, and I like it.

This poured 95% foam out of the bottle ... awesome. Slowly settled thru the white poofy foam to a partly sunny, bright day of a beer. This is light-bodied but with a powerful combination of flavor ... very light ripe banana, cereal flake, and just a sprig of herb. Pretty good.
