3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruits and spices in the aroma. Fluffy, long lasting head. Cloudy, orange appearance. Smooth, wheaty, yeasty taste. Just enough hops to keep it interesting. Compares well to true German weisens. Very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky yellow orange pour. A little something missing off the taste. A bit sweet, some citrus, lemons and oats. Rated 2/19/03

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (variety pack). Poured a hazy golden color topped by a dense, creamy white head. The aroma is strong bready yeast and banana, with hops and a touch of cloves. The taste is light and fruity with a touch of yeast. Very well done with a light zesty finish leaving the lightest hint of bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
DeGroen’s Weizen is one of the better weissbiers that come close to the imported offerings of Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, etc.
Very cloudy with deep yellow-orange hue. Contrasting white head rounds out the pleasing appearance of this beer.
Nose is exceptionally fruity with the standard estery, bananna citrus components. Medium bodied. A full flavored weizen with no discernible imperfections.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Smells of cloves, bananas, sweet malt. Tastes tarte with some weird rubbery hints on the finish.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Poured a nice hazy orange color with yeasty orange aroma and a little carbonation. Flavor was a little funky, and not in a good way. Overly sweet malts and had an eggy aftertaste?? I’m guessing I just got an off bottle. Would give it another chance if I could try it on tap

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12 oz bottle-poured a cloudy orange color w/no head. Had no carbonation at all. This is a bad bottle; flat, no head, no flavor. I debated weather or not to rate it, but since I just bought it @ Shawan & it had no date of any kind on the bottle to alert me to a problem, I really didn’t feel too guilty about it. Be wary of this one if you see it there-or elsewhere. It has only had 5 ratings in the last 2 years; these bottles must be very old!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, pale body with a small, white head. Nose if dead on to style with banana and light clove and some dough. The flavor is light banana, light clove, bread and a touch of honey, fairly dry. Medium/light body is very soft with light carbonation, just a bit thin on the finish. Very quaffable. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz. bottle, no freshness date, a blurb on the back label, sampled at cellar temperature in a weizen glass.
Poured a slightly hazy, reddish golden orange with a foamy white head, decent retention, minimal amount of sticking.
Aromas of banana and clove, fruity, spicy and wheat malty.
Good, steady medium carbonation and a malty crisp, dryish, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
For an American brew, a nice hefeweizen taste, the required banana and cloves, a good fruity, malty twang, lemon and spice, a soft hop bitterness towards the end and a dry yeasty, malty finish.
A surprise, very enjoyable, easy, smooth drinkability, if you like hefe’s and don’t think Americans can do a decent one, then you need to try this. This is decent one, not a great one, but did the trick for me.
