2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold with a very minimal white head. The nose is quite weird for a Hefe, there’s very little esters or banana notes that I would expect. It really smells a little off, with an almost rotten veggie like note. The flavor is much the same, none of the classic hefe character, just some wheat and an odd yeast profile. A little too thin and lacking in texture as well. I want a nice thick slurry feel, and this ain’t got it. Bummer. I was on a roll with all great beers this visit. This one is a clunker.

Pours slightly pineapple with a thin white head. Slight banana notes on the nose. Dry and crisp which feels subdued given the style. Finishes clean.
