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.

A nice light weizen. straw color and a soft head.
Aroma of citrus, raisins. Some banana and cloce notes too.
Light fizzy palate.
Decent beer but probably would have enjoyed it more on a warm Socal day instead of one of LAs "May Grey" weeks.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big fruity fresh banana nose portends the equally banana-forward wheat malty body of BJís here. Excellent hefe here modelling the classic flavor components of the style. Pours lightly hazy amber. Served a bit on the cold side but I ainít complaining. This is a great hot weather quencher.

A watered down version an otherwise average Hefe. I could drink this by the bucket full mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.
