3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this at the Summer NOVA BrewFest. Poured a slightly cloudy color with a small fluffy white head. Aroma was wheat, cloves, spices, and yeast. Flavor was pretty tasty - banana, cloves. A touch more carbonation to make this one really refreshing, especially since alcohol is pretty well subdued in this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Park Lane Tavern. Bronze beer with a thin but sticky little top of foam. The aroma has a bit of a funky funk, farm-housey thing. It drinks with a metallic-grape blend of stuff, I’m not really getting any weizenbock-ish yeast or normal character. Drinks a bit like a high gravity American wheat. (#5054, 6/9/2013)

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 This was tasted at the Brewery in Afton. I was traveling back to Richmond form Abingdon. It was classified as "Hoppy". The beer was served with an orange peel. The cloudy orange beer poured with a small head. The beer had some bitterness but not like a pale ale.
