1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2003 This beer has the right mouthfeel but the wrong flavor. Some wheat, more banana than clove, unpleasant at first. Dry finish. Drinkable but boring. Every micro and brewpub makes one of these, few get it right. Feels a little stronger than most wheats im used to. Dallas Greenville Avenue location. Re-rate 6/19/03: Awful flavor and aroma. Smells like a toilet. Something is really wrong with this. Maybe it was old. This stuff was BAD.

Very mild aroma--a slight candy hint to it. Hazy yellow, thin head remains, everything as it should appear, but that’s more than can be said for its flavor. Laffy taffy flavor, cherry and grape, and a bit of artificial watermelon. Nothing spicy in it. (on tap at Greenville Ave., Dallas location)

Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Too sweet, and overall just going through the motions, but passable.

Big banana/clove aroma with sugary sweet malt flavors. Though, malt seemed a little thin. Some bitterness in the finish, but hops were very subdued. A little too light-bodied, but otherwise pretty tasty.

From first glance, that this beer is not an American style hefe is evident. Subtle aroma, but full flavored and a little on the heavy side for a hefe. The body has a slight woody component with the noticeable presence of bananas which adds a delightful component to this beer. An excellently balanced hefeweizen and one that I highly recommend.

The beer looked great in the glass, even smelled like a true hefe, but the banana came across as fruity, almost candylike, cotton candy? Average brew.

I had this at The Ram brew/pub in Seattle. It is a most excellent hefeweizen. Very well colored, clean taste. Worth a try, I could drink it all night.
