2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly hazy and very pale yellow with a thin, creamy white head. Souring smell, sweaty gym socks, lemons, apple cider vinegar and canned corn juice. Pils malt flavor, some starch and coriander and, is there such a thing as cloves extract? Stinging lemon acidity and a triumphant return of the corn juice. Absolutely horrendous.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lucky me, I got the last glass of the season of this brew. On draught at the brewpub in Reedsburg, Wisconsin as "Corner Pub Hefeweizen." Pours a semi-hazy golden blonde brew with a thin white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and white ring. Some spotty lacing on glass side. Aroma of wheat/multi-grain malt, yeast, some banana esters, cloves and even some lemon zest. No slice of lemon needed for this brew. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of yeasty malt, some citrus and slight banana flavors. Finish is slightly dry, with a faded banana bread aftertaste. It looks like previous posts may have been rating the former brewmaster’s Weiss beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Off aromas. Too sour for a weiss bier. Appearance not dissimilar to the typical German weiss bier. Cloudy, light yellow. My initial impression was that it was better than their APA, but alas the scores are lower. Not great.
