3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - this is a might fine looking beer - effervescent body - thick, creamy, lasting head - the rest doesn’t match, but isn’t bad - a little thin on the palate - a bit of bubblegum - a little sweet, overripe bananas, apples - a light acidity - a little bit of spiciness in the finish - lacks the depth of character you want from the style, but okay.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is completely off style sweet and fruity with toffee, vanilla, and rye bread. The appearance is hazy amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a bit of leaves. The palate is thin but OK. Overall a weird beer not totally bad but I wouldn’t have guessed it was a Hef.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with an enormous creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was tart sugar, taffy, clove and bread. The flavor was tart citrus, clove, anise, honey and bread. Long finish with citrus, bread, clove and honey lingering. Moderately full bodied. Solid if unspectacular.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first new weiss I have had in a long time that is worth talking about. This is a quality, classic German Hefeweizen. Beautiful beer, with a tall white head, and different shades of orange color, it looks like egg yolk when the last swirl with sediment goes in. Aroma has wheat and light fruit. Sweet flavor, with more wheat, some citrus, and banana. This is good. Thick palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange color with a big white head. Sweet wheaty aroma with banana, some fruit-flavored bubblegum, light citric notes, a bit of caramel and some spicy hints. Sweetish flavor with wheat, fruits, a hint of malt and light sourish hints towards the finish. Medium-bodied. A pleasant, refeshing, mellow Weissbier.
