3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: † Dirty hazy orangish straw, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. † Lots of pale fruit on the nose, melon, some pear, a touch of apple. † Make that candied Apple. † Smells great, but as a German Hefeweizen... lolwut? † Wheaty on the tongue, but again very fruity. † I wouldnít say this is German or American, but some bastardization that is really fruity. † Some spritzy character, not very much of a wheaty mouthfeel, slight I guess. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Lots of melon, pear, and candied apples on the finish. † Weird... in a good way!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Aroma is banana, wheat, earthy, crisp, clove. Taste is wheaty, banana, citrus, grass. Iím not big on Hefeweizen in general, so I didnít love this. Doesnít make it a bad beer. Overall, pretty plain for a hefe.

Very middle of the road offering. not as offensive to the term "hefeweizen" as most american takes but youíd be better of just getting a german hefe without a doubt. Aroma is light banana/ clove. Appearance is somewhat cloudy yellow with loose bubbles. Taste is sweet and middle of the road. palate isnít very silky for a hefe. overall there are a bunch of better options out there, donít waste your time.

Par for the course. Iíd expect a Hef to be a little more cloudy. Reminds me a little of Franzikaner.

hazy gold with creamy white head. Big Clove aroma. Smooth and easy drinking. The banana and clove notes shine through in a basic way. Easy to drink a lot of in the summer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky dark gold color with just a thin head forming on top. The aroma is nice; full of cloves, cinnamon and herbal spice, banana, and some wheat. Itís good going down too. Light-bodied, lightly spiced, with plent of citrus, most notably banana, yeast, and soft vanilla notes. A solid refreshing choice on a hot day.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle thanks to Aaron for the pour! Hazy orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice banana, caramel, toffee, hints of clove and spice, hints of coriander, slight peach notes as well. Taste is a mix of nice caramel, biscuit, touch of sweet banana and peach, nice vanilla notes mixing with slight spice, finishing fairly sweet but very tasty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Delicious, spicy yeasty, rich banana, nice wheat malty aroma. Tasty, a touch tart, rich wheat malty, delicious banana, kick ass vanilla flavor that is refreshing and not over the top. One of the better American versions of a German Hefeweizen out there.
