3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance is of apricot nectar. Loch-Ness Murky! Tiny, white, creamy head. No lacing.
The aroma is of banana and clove. Typical of the style. 'Nuff said.
The flavor is fruity and yeasty up front. Perfectly balanced with a tart hop presence on the backside.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Short, tart, dry finish. Different for a German Wheat, but very nice!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355mL. Pours a clear yellow to straw with a medium, bright white, suddy head forming but not sticking around. No lace. Nose is relative to style with mostly apples, pears, and spice. As it warms it picks up a little phenolic clove and old banana. But as it opens up even more, these volatile compounds are replaced by heavy oatmeal and cereal grain...maybe something corny or buttery like cornbread (diacetyl and/or DMS?). Off-character in the nose but inoffensive. Taste is slightly buttery with a soapy palate. Sweet pears try to come through with sweet banana dessert, but this is ruined by big soapiness. Poor palate. Really all over the place.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a nice white head. Aroma of nice lemons, wheat and yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong yeastie flavour with a lot of lemons and a strong scent of hops! Aftertaste potent, but strong in showing the good flavours. Overall, a nice wheat - especially in the summer heat! I sampled this six ounce sample from pseudo-draught at the Old Dominion 2005 Beer Festival on 24-June-2005 in Ashburn, Virginia.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle as a trade extra. Hazy golden-yellow-orange in color with a small white head that leaves a thick foam ring after settling. The aroma is somewhat typical for the style with banana, clove, and a little lemon zest. The flavor is pretty typical with average sweetness. Banana, clove, spice, and citrus. Nice tingly carbonation with a light feel that adds to the drinkability. You know, it’s tough for this style to wow me these days like it did when I was a BMC guy in college. This one is well-done but does not exactly separate itself from the peloton. A nice summer beer nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep gold color with just a hint of haze and a very small, stark white head. The nose has notes of honey and florals. Light and perfumey. The flavor is a little sweet up front with some old banana peel, stale clove, and Fuji apple notes coming on strong. Pretty odd for a hefe. Light to medium body with average carbonation leading to a slight sweet finish. Not my favorite for the style.
