3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a below average head, a pale-golden yellow. Slightly hazy. Great sweet nose, def. banana. This is wheaty but with that same sweetness. A little short of being ’crisp’ but still very drinkable. A decent offering.

Slightly hazy, dull gold with a short, white head.
Taste is tart, tangerine/lemon...soft...
A slight acidic bite.
Nothing special, but it has a pleasant taste and feel.

Bottle. Sour fruity spicy wheat aroma, and a little band-aid as it warmed. Hazy gold with a small white head. Sour citrusy wheat malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

Not terrible, but definitely unimpressive. Wheat and some light yeast. Very light. Some sweetness from the wheat. No spices or anything else. Watery finish. No body. Light pale lager aroma.

I was in SC last week visiting my brother and figured i try a beer brewed by Charleston Brewing Company while i was there.
I chose their Halfmoon Hefe Weizen.
The beer poured clear and golden with a small light head with minimal retention.
The beer smelled of fruit and banana. The taste was nothing exciting. Very light and very fruity. Not much of anything going on. I didn’t taste much of any hops or malt.
Overall a very unimpressive Hefe Weizen. I would not ever drink this again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright hazy peach with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is sweet, some orange rind, a bit one dimensional in what it has, some yeast character. The flavor is sweet, orange rind, crisp, less yeast in the flavor, mild wheat, not super traditional tasting. Not bad just not standout, east to drink on.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a golden yellow - absolutely no head and no lacing what-so-ever. Aroma is slightly lemon - not much else. Taste is very weak lemon along with slight wheatiness. Not even close to one of the better Hefe Weizens I have had - usually a fan of this style - but this beer did not meet my expectations.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Gyle41386. Thanks man! Pours a yellowish orange color with a short lived fizzy white head. Smell is bubble gum, banana and a soft clove aroma. Taste is watery, slightly sweet and strongly wheaty. Standard wheat flavor with a thin yeast flavor and it finishes slightly sweet. Really, not offensive, but a bit watered down, and "cheap" tasting, somehow. A bit fizzy and medium to thin bodied.
