Bottle (BB Dec 2012).
Head is initially average sized, frothy/creamy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of creamed corn, plastic, gum, decaying peaches.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Weird and unpleasant aroma, rather foul aftertaste...a complete hunk o’ junk, this is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale amber, orange hued, minor haze, lively carbonation with a large foamy white head, sticky lacing. A bit more orange than others, thats for sure. Wheaty nose, pale breadiness as well. No real clove, banana, or bubble gum to mention. Similar tongue, wheaty, a bit sweet, bready, but again... no spices I usually associate with the style. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Lingering wheat and breadiness. Very simple, clean, but lacking the spices I like to see in a German Hefeweizen.

8/25/13. 12oz bottle at Bad Habitz. Darker pour than expected, almost a clear amber/copper, with a small khaki head that fades. Light banana and fruitiness, some caramel on the aroma. Lightly sweet flavor, toasted caramel and booziness, not much hefe character. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 08.06.2012
Aroma is saison-like with hints of tartness and sourness. Apricot and wheat, but no banana at all. Hints of yeast and something that reminds me of weissbier – maybe the sweetness and wheat? Flavour is refreshing, a bit floury and very short – almost no aftertaste at all. No banana esthers here either, but maybe some apricot and hints of bubblegum, wheat and yeast. Refreshing and good, but a bit thin. A hefe with a saison twist.

Tampa, Fl. - Total Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange, pillowy white head, nice lacing. Hint of clove in the aroma, some yeast.
