3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the pub. Hazy golden color with a short lived frothy yellowish head. The nose shows some spice but i mostly get the lemon wedge with which they garnished the glass. Flavor has lots of lemon, with some bitter orange peel some spice and the banana in the finish. It’s an okay beer but not a great hefe.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Weizen is not my favourite style imitation by US brewpubs, the creamy yeast strains always end up watery due to too short time spent in the test tubes. Thin body, quickly disappearing head, which might be due to the miniature glasses. All elements (banana malts, clove nose) in place, refreshing enough, but this is not a brew that carries the arguments for its own US-existence on its sleeve, apart from paying diluted tribute/homage (vs. f.e. Victory Prima Pils or Sierra Nevada Hefe for spectacularly tasteful instalments of this transatlantic irony).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a weizen! Beautiful golden poor with a nice white head that leaves a substantial amount of lacing. The aroma is light & quite subtle. The taste consists of soft fruit notes primarily banana. The body is creamy & the beer is excellently balanced! Easily 1 of the best hefeweizen’s I’ve ever tried!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
.75l big bottle. Cloudy yellow otange white head. Decent enough esters and banana but something off about this - watery and not right. Oh and the cork said best by march 2013. Really useful....after you bought and opened already.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Fuck, even at $6 I feel offended. Rotted tangerines and a metallic note in the nose, very difficult going. Faded malts are the BEST part of this beer. Train wreck.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle in a weizen glass. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of wheat, hints of banana, some light spices, bread, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with hints of the pale lager taste. Average texture. A decent wheat beer, but something is just slightly off.
