Bottle. Yellow pour with white head. Smells of malt, yeast and slight banana. Tastes of the same. Easy to drink but not too much going on.

This one is OK. I was expecting sort of a light pale ale but this is more like a mild hefe. The nose isn’t much to speak of a bit of bready yeast and that’s about it but a juicy banana character comes out when you taste it and that’s pretty nice. This is a bit on the sweet side which brings out the banana but it is on the mild side as far as carbonation and I think it could use a bit more zip. Like I said: OK.

Draft at Three Lions Pub, Shorewood, 22viii13. Brewpub-style, hastily concocted light wheat ale with flat aroma, dominant grainy malts and just a whiff of lemon rind. Sticky palate, refreshing, as watery. Miles away from the naturally rich aromas of a bottom-fermented Weizen: So far, wheat and ale are elements of separate traditions I would for a change not mix...

A light and refrshing ale, crushable ona hot summer day, good change of pace for heavier brews.

Straw yellow with a very, very, very large white head that sticks around. Aroma is grassy with hay, wheat, banana and noble hops. Taste of wheat and lemon with mild banana and heavier yeast.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and banana notes with accents of sweetened lemon and a hint of black pepper.. on the sweet side, but it was solid. The flavor found sweet bananas and lesser honey at the core, with sweet and tart wheat around.. picked up peppery notes and spicy yeast over more banana on the finish. Light-medium bodied with higher, filling carbonation on the palate.. good mouthfeel, and very easy-drinkin’.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle. First whiff of aroma yields nice banana tone. Color is a orange and yellow bright blend. Head is pillowed foam and holding well. Taste hints of banana, lemon zest, and cloves. A nice malt backbone with a nice citrus hop zing on the back end. Very refreshing and tasty. Mouthfeel is light bodied. Can see this being very easy to session a few of these. A very enjoyable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy yellow-orange with white head, aroma has notes of slight clove, biscuit, bready notes, slight hints of banana, yeast notes come through, touch of fruity pear and spicy yeast notes as well. Taste is some slight yeast and spice, hints of biscuit and bread, some clove, spice, and fruity notes, finishing fairly clean. Nothing great, but nothing really wrong.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really interesting lighter wheat ale with a nod to hefeweizen. Banana & clove aroma with a hint of citrus. Malt sweetness seems to be cut by a nice hop bite. A citrus hop flavor and aroma come out well and leads to a creamy finish. Solid wheat ale from Big Bay.
