3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ CBC - Hazy gold, creamy white head. Nose held some authentic notes of banana, clove, and yeasty bubblegum, but with a soft underlying lemony funk note. Nicely spiced citric, wheaty, and soft vanilla flavor throughout. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation, crisp, dry finish. Well done example...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Redbones. Opaque lemonade pour with a well retained white head, neither fizzy nor creamy. Decent nose of banana pudding, clove, yeast and flowery perfumes. Flavor is very nice, with added notes of lemon zest, citric spices and tart lemon-lime icing. Palate is very light and refreshing, though at times does get a little stuck in the recesses of my mouth. Finishes crisp. Refreshing quencher, best part about it was the total absence of a grainy texture I get tired of too fast with Hefes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deeply hazy banana-colored body with a clean, velvety white head. Aroma of clove, light rubber, flowers, and bubble gum. Flavor has prominent clove and bandaid qualities, plus aspects of wheat and very light toast. Long phenolic-bitter finish; strikes me as too bitter. Chewy texture for a hefeweizen made this less than refreshing. I didn’t particularly care for this, but then again wheat beer fatigue has long since kicked in for the summer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with a disappearing white lace. The aroma is wheat, honey, summer fruits, coriander, and some other earthy spices. The taste on the palate starts acidic and tart with a bready sweetness that tantalizes the tastebuds with honey, orange, lemon, all spice, that is sweet and malty which coats the palate and finishes lite and clean.
