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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 750ml Barrel House label. Warmly yellow-orange and fizzy, with a soapy head. There’s a sweet, yeasty aroma. This drinks with an easy-going citrus character, a bit lemony, with just a tingle of wheatiness. An American interpretation. (#4865, 12/23/2012)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, Barrel House series: Pours a cloudy golden with a pillowy froth of clingy white head. Has a sweet bready wheat and banana nose with a touch of lemon citrus. Body starts with good fullness and appropriate carbonation with a soft malty sweetness and good clove spice with some light fruity esters and lemon zest. Finished smooth and true to style. An authentic, enjoyable and well-made hefeweizen. If this were available in 6-packs I’d drink it all the time, but when a 750ml bottle costs 1.5 times as much as a 6-pack of German-made hefeweizen, it’s hard to justify drinking this more than once.
