Earlier Rating: 7/10/2007 Total Score: 3.3
On tap Nashville. A hazed golden pour. An aroma of corriander and bannana. A crisp flavor of the corriander comes out first then fades to the fruit and finishes with a very light bitter. Another decently carbonated beer with a solid palate all round but just a tad(wee tad) on the light side. Very good for the style no real flaws. I might should have rated it a tad higher. Maybe next time.

Sample at the Memphis brewpub. Clear gold with a small white head. A classic interpretation. Nice cloves and cool zest. Just a hint of hops with some soft bitterness. A simple and likable beer.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of clear colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a hazy uncarbonated yellow colored body. The mild aroma was bready and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of malt banana wheat and honey. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden hued with an odd aroma of paprika and chili beans, perhaps with cumin or something; really weird smell. Taste is pure hefeweizen however, with notes of banana, wheat, clove, and more wheat in a bready dough tone. Right flavor, way off on the aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Served up at my table a haze, pale light yellow body with a little bit of white fizz up top. Modest lacing.
Smell: Soft aroma of wheat malt overlayed with notes of spice (clove) and Big League Chew.
Taste: Minor graininess incorporated within the light malted wheat flavor. Some sweet wildflower honey accents. The anticipated spicy clove and bubblegum, though not much in the way of banana esters. Semi-dry finish, scantly creamyish with a continued wheat taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium to medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Decent enough. As with many of the Boscos brew, it’s just okay.
