3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 On draft at CBC. Came in with no head at all. This one is more of a cloudy yellow than orange like most hefe’s. Aroma is neutral. Flavor is OK, but the oddest thing about this hefe is its fizzy mouthfeel. A strange brew. RE-RATE: Sept. 2011. Nice fresh pour ont on the patio. Much better than the one I had last year. Good head and carbonation. Good aroma and flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow and a decent head. Aroma is of yeast and the taste had some bubblegum to it. The finish was fairly clean. A decent showing for a Hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Very spicy, though natural, with a nice citric edge, though from esters, not American hops. Rich banana, great balance. Some hops in there as well. Big spice. Great stuff with excellent balance. Tingly, slightly bitter, peppery finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at CBC. A pretty legitimate offering for the style. Pours cloudy golden-yellow in color, as it should, with a one-finger white head. Aroma is your typical banana, wheat, and clove. Not too much banana like some can have. Flavor is light and not too sweet with restrained banana, wheat, clove, spice, and bubblegum. Crisp, medium-light, and refreshing on the palate. Not a bad summer beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A standard crisp Hefeweizen that sticks to the basics of the style. Well brewed but very standard.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose shows stripped-down basic hefe beer elements with wheat and some banana esters. Taste is a hefe without bells and whistles. Almost no spiciness, orange peels or any other occasional hefe flavour elements. Nice body with a lot of wheat with a moderate banana flavour. Pleasantly not sweet. Very clean and crisp and refreshing. Really basic except for a more-than-average floral hopping. Semi-dry finish. This is a well done clean refreshing beer but it also exactly like too many others. This brewery makes some world class beer but this one won’t win any medals. Or maybe it will. But not in the 100 meter dash. I’m sure of that.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CBC. Hazy golden, small white head. Familiar Hefe nose, not over the top like too many American interpretations. Very nice, clean, refreshing flavor that balances the hops malt and wheat very well. Usually not a big fan of the style, but this is very well made.

Included in sampler flight. Sitting at the brewpub with a sampler flight in front of me as I type. A very well done hefe this is. Very light and refreshing, One of the more drinakable wheat beers I have had in awhile.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy blonde weizen with a thin white head. Light pleasant banana esters in aroma, cloves, pungeant and interesting. In mouth, a nice clean weizen with light fruityness, more wheaty and oily than expected. Nice offering. On tap at brewpub, July 1, 2009

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Tons of lace that follows a yellow body with noticeable white head. Creamy mouthfeel, clean and refreshing taste. Good example of the style. Fresh aroma.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour reveals a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of bubble-gum and cloves. Interesting flavor of bubble-gum and cloves, there’s a shy presence of fruity esters. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation.
