My favorite beer the German beer fest. This combines the bitterness of an IPA with the sweet and refreshingness of wheat. reminds me of the first time they mixed peanut butter with jelly.

Poured a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, toffee, vanilla, floral hops, pine, citrus, and light alcohol as well. Taste of more banana and clove, with resiny pine, citrus fruits, bitter hops and moderate alcohol in the finish. Couldn’t tell much difference from the Schneider, except it was pinier with just a tad thinner mouthfeel.

Frothy, off-white head. Hazy, amber apperance. Light hops, grass, some banaba, and some clove. aroma. Very long finish. Definitely taste the alcohol. Really had to search for the hops.

Rich orange color with super nice fluffy delicious head. Awesome malt hop aroma with some bread. Even smells smooth. Taste like cream of wheat and malty goodness. A little alcohol as well. Looks almost Nitro pour but regular tap. Heavy towards the end. Over 20oz pour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong herbal and pine aroma. Lots of citrus and floral notes going on as well. Looks great, while the white, frothy head lasts, anyway. Golden, slightly hazy body color. The flavor is quite hoppy, and very citrusy. Very refreshing beer. Somewhat astringent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler - hazy light gold beer, with a soapy, large-bubbled head - the aroma explodes with american hops, but once your nose adjusts, there are complex notes of clove, lemon, and strong herbal notes (mostly thyme and rosemary) - the flavor progresses in much the same way - strong, pine and citrus american hop flavors up front, coupling well with your standard wheat beer flavors - then, more complex notes of thyme, lime leaves, peppery qualities - light sweetness near the finish, with some pineapple and orange - herbal notes and hop bitterness linger in the finish - the alcohol becomes a bit too apparent at the end, but the warming character it brings fits the herbal qualities of the beer - a very unique and tasty brew, with a bit more "character" than it’s companion.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 Draught at Dunedin Brewery. Glad to have a chance to sample this one. Light bodied wheat pour, small off white head. Nose is like an Abbey Tripel, huge notes of fusel alcohol, cloves, black pepper, lemons, piney hops and other assorted spices. Not really a fan of Tripels at all so this one is a bit off-putting to me. Flavor is very similar, huge clove and peppery spice. Finish is very lengthy, the best part of the beer. Not a fan, but there were good parts.
