3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazy, vibrant yellow color with a thin white head that faded to a ring and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat, citrus fruit, clove, pepper, and banana. Smooth, creamy entry with some moderate citrus fruit leads into a creamy wheatiness offset by a moderate spiciness (clove, pepper) and light banana that linger into a creamy finish with soft undertones of drying hops peaking through. Low carbonation and full, creamy mouth feel. Overall, it’s a solid hefe that definitely shows some of the traditional characteristics, it just doesn’t live up to some of the german examples.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faint aroma of wheat and lemon. Color is a light cloudy yellow. Not attractive. Palate is light and average carbonation. Flavors are grainy wheat and citrus. They don’t blend well and leave an artificial aftertaste. This beer needs some work.
