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

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.

Sampler at Schaumburg. Hazy yellow tan. Decent banana clove tones. A pretty acceptable offering. Easy drinking, but there is an odd underlying taste. Did not grow on me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
All of the right weizen notes, with a hint of smoke. Nice job on this, as the Americans can’t seem to make a decent weizen. Heavier, chewy mouthfeel, creamy head, and sweet wheat and malt notes. It’s the smokiness that adds a new dmenssion, and makes it interesting. Nice job!

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.

Enjoyed on tap @ Ram restaurant Salem, OR with Erick 1-17-14. Visually, to be expected. Ok head, white frothy. But the flavor is a nice mix of wheat, bubble gum and then distinct banana. 8.8 BD

12/15/2013. Hazy golden color with a white head. Not my favorite style, but one of the better ones I tried, so maybe that say more about the rest of the line up. Citrus, spice and banana with bready flavors and a spicy bitter finish

Pour on tap at the brewpub, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight grass, clove, banana, hints of bubblegum, touch of biscuit, bread, slight more spice and yeasty notes, fairly clean overall. Taste is a mix of slight bubblegum, clove, hints of biscuit and bread, slight spice, finishing yeasty, slightly sweet, dry.

Hazy blond, white head.
Smell decent banana clove.
Taste gum and clove. Bit of a bite in the after taste.
Not a bad American take on it.
