3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours cloudy light amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma has strong banana and slightly spicy wheat notes; effectively no lemon. Flavor is the same plus some light lemon. Spiciness resolves into what tastes like light clove. Light sweetness, no bitterness, light bodied, but creamy on the palate. Not bad at all. I am surprised at the bashing this one has taken.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy yellow body with a small frothy white head that retained well. The nose is light and a little bland with minimal yeast esters. The flavor is rather light as well, just a bit of wheat and yeast slurry with minimal banana notes. Medium bodied and fairly soft with light fizzy carbonation. Pretty weak effort overall.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
BJís Harvest Hefeweizen is good in its own right, but not what one expects from a traditional Hefeweizen. Low aroma with none of the expected spiciness. Head is white and frothy on top of a yellow, cloudy pour. Taste has no clove and banana notes usually present in this style, but has a citrusy character. Harvest Hefeweizen is good but not as expected in this style.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent German wheat. Aroma was of faint wheat and clove. Cloudy yellow color with a white foamy head. I liked the palate as it had some weight and was creamy. Flavors were well-blended of wheat, citrus, clove and maybe banana. Somewhat refreshing.

On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA.
Lightly hazy, pale straw-yellow with an off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of banana, lemon, wheat, yeast and cloves.
Taste of banana, cloves, wheat, yeast and citric hops. All the usual hefeweizen flavors are there, but are not quite as robust as many better hefeweizens.
Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the Vienna, Virgina location. Golden amber color, hazy throughout. Very thin head leaves virtually no lacing. Taste dominated by bubblegum, cloves, and banana syrup like the aroma it is very weak and watery. Palate is acidic and highly carbonated. Tangy citrus on the finish. A horible example of style, and another ice parlor flavored beer. Too many beers made and none perfected.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 12-09-2009 at BJís in Greenwood, IN. This draft beer pours a small off-white head with a long retention, very cloudy dark yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma consist of yeast, fruit, banana, and spicy. The Taste is fruity, banana and spicy. The Palate is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, the Taste outshines the Aroma and the banana flavor dominates this beer. This beer is one of my favorite beer styles, but it truly lacks character.
