3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Dilly Deli. Not my favorite style of beer, but this was delicious. Golden to Reddish in color with a fairly substantial head. Not overly smoky - as I assumed it would be. Natural wheat and bananna are the flavors that stood out. Pretty thick body but very drinkable and smooth. Good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2007 Draft. Amber/ orange in color with small head. Wonderful aroma of wheat, plums, banana, and clove. The taste was the same with smooth mouthful and finish. Sweet but not too overpowering with some alcohol showing up as it warms. They have to bottle this stuff!!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Capone’s. Cloudy red/orange body with good size head. Aroma is banana, cloves, yeast. First taste is sweet with a ceral sweet bite to it. Sugary, complex flavor with alot of yeast in it that was not agreeing with me. The smokiness comes out later in the beer as it warms. Heavy carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Capone’s. Hazy coppery ruby color with off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, citrus, some smokiness, and some fruit. The palate was very creamy and smooth, with flavor notes of banana, citrus, and slightly rauchy caramel malt. This one was outstanding, and I wish I could buy it by the case.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham. Absolutely gorgeous orangey red color with a thick and lasting slightly cream colored head. Strong banana nose with a bit of plum and subtle smoke. The smoke is also rather subtle in the flavor but compliments the strong banana taste nicely. A weizenbock in the vein of Aventinus with a slightly charred finish. I’ll have to make sure I get some more of this while it’s still available.
