3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 Hazy straw color with a modest white head and islands of lace. Aromas of wheat and oranges. Hint of banana.
Light sweet start that intensifies through the first half of the quaff. Lots of malt sweetness with touch of light fruit. Lightly spicy hops kick in toward the finish and takes back the earlier malt intensity and become somewhat biting on the tongue. Refreshing. Almost a cross between a hefe and a wit.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Aroma is citrus, banana, and cloves. Pours a very hazy (hard to see thru) pale yellowish-orange with a white head without a lot of retention. Flavor is very malty. Banana is very obvious in the flavor. A little spicey then sour and citrusy in the finish. Very smooth beer. Light banana aftertaste. I like this more than most apparently.

Great wheat flavor with a bite. A nice surprise for the winter. I had it for the first time when I was not able to find Oberon and liked it a great deal better. I only wish I could get it year round. I have to order it by the case.

Enjoyed this baby for $1 in the Bellís restaurant (Eccentric Cafe). Gotta say, it was the best $1 beer I have ever had. In any case, a nice flavorful, excellent example of a German Hefeweizen. Have I had better? Yes. But was this an excellent beer? Absolutely. The quality you would expect from Bellís.

I didnít like this even a little bit.
Bitter with strange, undefinable undertones. I barely finished the glass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 July 2004: 12 oz at the Eccentric -- for 1.00! Bright opaque yellow, small lasting creamy topping. Simple but friendly sweet banana nose; on the tongue fairly dry and only moderately sweet. Light, spicy, peppery with a hint of finishing sourness. Needs more fruit; just OK. 7/3/5/3/12 3.0
May 2005 at ClarkVVís place. What was I thinking? It was a buck for a reason...trying to get rid of it, even Bells will sell stuff a little too late sometimes...anyway, this sample (12 oz botttle) is much fruitier and sweeter, with a cleaner and sweeter, fuller body, lots of bubblegum and cloves and banana. Still not a knockout to my taste but Iíll be willing to try again...

Cloudy Gold Coloring. Fruity Taste. Banana, Orange? Actually a pleasing beer to taste.

I happened to try this one at Chili's Restaraunt of all places. It was either this or some other macros so I figured I would give it a shot. Turns out it goes fairly well with a nice burger. Its a bit acidic but feels almost creamy in the mouth. Easily a beer to sit back and relax with.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very hazy beer with a thin white head when served from the tap. The aromas are of banana (dominant), and a dusty spiciness. Very banana tasting in the flavor as well, it dominates the flavor. Nice wheaty-grain character in the finish. This is certainly mislabeled as this beer is quite German in character and usually a white refers to a Belgian style of beer. Light tasting and refreshing, where I was expecting a "double" Wit style of beer brewed at winter warmer strengths. A good beer but a bit of a let down. I did not notice any of the sour character others seemed to have notice, which make me think that their "hand-bottled" samples were a bit infected.
