3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin ivory colored head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of wheat and banana. Light, clean body with flavors of wheat, banana and a touch of cloves. The finish is fruity and leaves a mild spice and wheat aftertaste. Fairly straightforward and average all around.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12-1-07 tap at the brewery
Cloudy, yet thin and watery yellow in appearance. Smells of orange rind, lemon and cloves. Taste is bland and boring. It has hints of that hefeweizen taste - but not much at all. Not a style I like and a very weak representative of the style!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy murky pale yellow pour. Smell is light clove, and the standard in hefeweizen yeast, but muted somewhat. Some wheat in the taste and light clove along with an enjoyable wheat finish. This was decent and one of their better beers, although I don’t typically enjoy the style a lot.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample tray. Cloudy pale yellow. Banana and sweet spice aroma carry over onto the palate, but it comes across as somewhat diluted, the flavours not quite living up to the aroma. Not bad.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler. Cloudy dirty yellow. Very good aroma. Banana zestiness that makes you want to taste. Flavour is a little tired. Doesn’t match the bouquet. More lemon although some banana comes through in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a hazy and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was wheat and banana. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild banana and dough.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Vegas. Cloudy pale orange with a spongy white head and decent sticky lacing. Aroma has some clove essence to it with a bit of bubblegum and banana thrown in. Flavor is the same with some coriander spiciness noted in there. Average to above average brewpub Hefe. Thick mouthfeel. Good summer refresher on a hot Nevada August day.
