3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky golden in appearance...seriously cloudy! Pear fruit and spices are the feature of both the aroma and taste vs more of the banana-clove Im used to, which is nice.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at the RAM, Schaumburg. Properly cloudy. A nice ’nana and ester nose which matches up with the taste. The menu here refers to "Vanguard" hops, which I don’t know what they mean in a German beer, but they don’t drag this beer off-style. Nice fizzy mouthfeel to the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a small white head and decent lacing. Wheaty, bready, citrusy aroma- notes of banana, light bubblegum, biscuit, and straw. Taste is sweet banana, and clove upfront, leading to a well-round body - very wheaty, bready, straw - and ending with a touch of bubblegum and decent spice on the backend. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Damn decent Hefe, that kind-of surprised me.

On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a hazy yellow with virtually no head at all, the aroma has a little bit of spices and banana but not a whole lot, the flavor has a decent amount of fruit on the front end with banana flavors in the finish, decent mouthfeel, one of the better choices here so far.

Draft at Humperdinks northwest. Pours yellow with an inch of white foam. Slight banana on the nose. Solid taste notes on the tongue. Might have been better had it not been served in a refridgerated glass.

Nice traditional here with a deeply juicy banana character. Clove is dialed way back. Murky maize; little head. Nice soft mouthfeel. Great summer quencher.
