3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: The nose is right on style, with wheat, lots of clove, and some banana
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy golden-white color with some white lace as well
Flavor: It has a fairly typical hefe taste as well, that much resembles the nose component-wise
Palate: This one has a lightly clean feel, with a soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
This one came off an on-style Hefe, but it isn’t really all that interesting or exciting. I sampled some really good beers at Devil’s Backbone, but this one wasn’t really a favorite for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overripe lemon, banana, and clove nose. Milky yellow, medium head. Tangy banana flavor, which lingers on the palate for a long time. Decidedly no cloves present on the palate. Very thin. Like the brewer’s Roseland Wheat, this was also thin and soapy, but this is quite a bit better. Either way, I’m not sure wheats are this brewer’s forte.
