3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow with thin white head...smelled just as you’d expect, bananas and cloves...tasted sweet with bananas, like a banana split with diet ice cream with artificial sweetner...not bad, but a fantastic example as to why I don’t like most Hefes...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Actually fairly decent for an american made hefe. Pours a light cloudy yellow color with a small white head. The brew had some good spicy in the aroma with a hint of lemon. The spice came through well in the taste with a good wheaty flavor and a bit of lemon.

Another weak brew from Big Horn. There just isn’t a whole lot going on here, but it was a little bit better than the blonde. Not much wheat taste or aroma - banana or otherwise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew at the brewery in Indianapolis poured a small head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lace. The body was a hazy yellow-white color and it had a banana wheat yeast aroma that was very nice. The mouth feel was smooth tingly and fruity with a banana malt flavor. This was very nice for a Hefe-Weizen made in the USA very true to the style and very good.
