2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a tallow-cloudy gold with no head. Good clove and banana esters with an equally good matching flavor. Certainly tastes like a rich hefe, but the fact that the beer’s head died before the bartender could get to from the tap to me (only seconds!) is a big detractor. Ask any German.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at the brewpub.
It has a slightly hazy yellow color with a foamy white head. The nose is floral, wheaty, and has a bit of clove. There is also something in there I coudln’t quite place. Sort of an earthiness. Perhaps a bit mushroom? The flavor had lots of earthy notes to it. You can also expectt some clove and a strange tart note. It’s a little blase on the palate, but overall fairly refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I sampled this beer on tap at the brewpub in New Orleans, and was probably my favorite of the five I sampled. The beer had a hazy gold-straw color with some sediment and a decent-sized, foamy white head that had good retention and cling. It had an aroma that was a mix of citrus hops, some fruit, and a touch of lemon, yeast, and grain. The flavor was a fairly zesty bitter with some fruity sweetness as well. The beer had slightly above average carbonation, but was a bit watery and thin without a great mouthfeel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewpub in New Orleans. Pours a cloudy yellow caramel color with a one finger white head. Aroma is strange for the style but has some notes of grass, honey and wheat along with some funkiness. Flavor is somewhat sour with notes of malt, bread, yeast, grass and hints of lemon. Light body with a quick finish. Not a very good example of the style.

On tap at the brewhouse. This was my favorite of the Crescent City beers. A good weiss. Strong smell of wheat and apples. A light mouthfeel of wheat and spices. Nothing entirely new or different, but it is a good beer.

Draft. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose came with a lot of clove but it wasn’t overstated in the taste. This beer had a nice spicy finish to it. I think this beer was somewhat atypical for the style but still a tasty brew.
