Tap in Schaumburg. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is medium malt (straw, meal, cookie), banana, cloves, and citrus. Flavor is malt with spices. Light body and carbonation, low warmth with a dry finish.

Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a rather cloudy golden color. Nose has loads of citrus in there, as well as quite a bit of wheat and clove to it. Taste has a little banana in there, as well as just a bit of wheat. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at the Ram in Seattle.
Pours a light cloudy brown-yellow. The aroma is a typical banana and bubblegum aroma, but slightly syrupy and rather caricatured. The flavor is actually somewhat sour and rancid relative to the target, making it thoroughly unenjoyable. Mouthfeel is thin. Another disappointment on the night.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured the expected hazy gold color with an average white head. Bitter, medicinal aroma cut in the way of spicy clove and some sweetness. The flavor had a weird, dry minty, medicinal flavor that reminded me of Rolaids. The mouthfeel was fine. Not good.

Pours a cloudy yellow with no carbonation and minimal head. Orange peel aroma and strong orange taste on top of wheat malt. Slight medicine taste and aftertaste on a medium body.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft at Humperdinks in Arlington. Cloudy orange. Aroma of intense and massive (?artificial) bubblegum. Taste is strangely bitter and sour. Unpleasant.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a sampler at the Indy location: RAM prides itself on not serving their Hefe with a lemon. The bad news is this is not a very good beer and it might have been better with a lemon. Pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Not much lacing at all. The aroma is not bad, with some clove, citrus and banana. The taste however was kind of disturbing. It takes like Mr. Bubble to me for some reason. It was hard to detect any wheat characteristics under the odd bath soap flavor. Same goes for the finish, it pretty much ruined the beer. I'd give it another shot but this was just not right.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a hazy light yellow with little head. Aroma is the traditional hefeweizen yeast banana and clove character. Taste is wheat, clove, banana, and spices. Not the most flavorful hefe, but it’s ok.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Schaumburg Illinois. Opaque medium golden. Excessively sweet candyish (for candy-asses) nose, very soft body, no hops within a mile-and-a-half, lemony, artificial flavor, weak, tolerable in comparison with some of the other samples.
