3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy yeloow with white head. The aroma is banana and clove with hearty yeast notes. The flavor is banana and clove of course, with slight toasty and a wisp of zest in the finish. A kick of raw wheat flavor comes out in the aftertaste. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Actually a fairly refreshing & tasty American wheat ale. The body is a somewhat hazed, vary pale straw color with a creamy white head that performs some thick lacing. The aroma is a honey sweetened wheat with a subtle amount of fruitiness, bananas & pears. Very smooth to the palate, the honeyed wheat takes over most of the flavor, the fruit taking a background role. It’s got a mild, wheat flakes finish with a meager citric tartness. Okay.

Good but short of great. The banana and clove really comes through on this one. Not as cloudy as many hefes I have tried, almost flirting with a kristal. Tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Appears a cloudy (but not overly cloudy as some wheats can be) golden yellow with small thick head. Aromas of typical banana and clove and nutmeg along with some sweet malt. No hop aroma present. Flavor is sweet, fruity, spicy and yeasty with a bit of hop bitterness. More banana than spice so probably fermented a bit warm. Finishes dry. Fairly full bodied with a smooth feel. Good weissen.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub: this, I thought, was a kick ass wheat. Poured cloudy butterscotch yellow with a full thick white head. Banana and clove aroma with a bit of coriander. Full bodied and yeasty. Very nice. Well done Carolina!
