3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, ordered online from Beers of Europe. Pours a strong orange gold, slightly hazy. The carbonation is lively at first but dies quickly leaving a flatter beer. Aroma is bubblegum and banana, with a bit of orange peel and spice. Very sweet, almost sickly. The taste however is a bit sickly: intense sweetness with a short finish. This is ok, I am fond of the hefeweizen style so it gets a bit of a free pass. However it isn’t the best representative of the style and tastes a bit artificial.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin and bland for the style. Appropriately straw colored and cloudy. "Day of the dead" artwork is only reason to try.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a goblet. Orange and cloudy appearance with a thin white head. Aroma of banana, clove, herbs, spices, yeast, wheat malts and light vanilla. Similar flavor, heavily spiced and moderately sweet. Medium body, creamy and smooth with soft carbonation. Easy to drink and unoffensive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey deep golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, barely white head. Wheat malty aroma, notes of banana, a cautiously spicy, yeasty touch. Taste is moderately sweet wheat malty, fruity notes deliver more than pure banana, they come around with a somewhat Asian food touch, ginseng, bamboo, lychee. Not that bad a Hefeweizen with funny Asian twist.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed at a friends place while watching a group of people play X-Wing and I have no idea what's going on. Appearance is light cloudy gold with moderate white head. Aroma of strong orange peel, spice, light dreamsicle. Taste goes down with a unique spiciness, very potent clove and peppery, more so than any other Weiss I've had. It's just decent.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
11.2 ounce twist-off bottle - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Best Before: 080914.
Appearance: Lightly hazed, golden-orange body with a small, very thin, white head barely kept alive by steady streams of soda-like bubbles.
Smell: Somewhat sweet-smelling corn-based cereal with the merest aromatic mention of ’nana and lemon. Ay Dios Mio!!
Taste: Sweet start, with what seems like some corn slide into the recipe for a taste of corn syrup glazed grains. Very faintly bready. Near-dead notes of citrus, banana. No appreciable hop character. Then, it’s back to the sugariness until the lightly fizzy finish. An embarrassing effort.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Beloved? Geez, no. Immortal? Well, it will live on in my mind as a truly ghastly hefe until the end of my days.
