3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that died down leaving a short head on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass. The head has good retention properties. S: Light aromas of yeast are present in the nose, although not much in the way of banana fruits are perceptible. T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there is less earthiness in the yeast and a little more bananas and lots of wheat. No cloves are perceptible. M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. O: This beer is easy to drink and you get more of the wheat compared to the bananas.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful, cloudy golden/orange body with a thick white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and orange hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries yeasty, citrusy, clove, and banana notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Enjoyable Weizen. However, I was expecting something more punchy from a winter beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: deep, bright gold with a creamy, fluffy white head. Aroma: powerful nose of yeast, ripe bananas, light citrus, toasted cloves, and yeasty bubblegum. Taste: banana bread (including a bit of toasted nuts), sweet caramel, allspice, clove, light ginger. Finish: zingy tingle in the mouth, lingering yeast and sweet wheat crackers. Notes: Expected a dunkler bock from the bottle and season, but was still happy. On the sweet and spicy side, and a little heftier than the traditional HW. Definitely felt ’special’. Would drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Expectation: love the style, but the low ratings on RateBeer suggest it’ll be alright
Motivation: as much as I aspire to drink only the finest beers available, sometime value has to be taken into account and it certainly is the case here
Hardware: Half litre bottle (best by Aug 2014) into generic Weizen glass
Nose: wheat and a little funky.
sip: banana flavors and caramel/spice
Taste: light to medium sweetness
Misc: slight fizz
Conclusion: about what I expected - not a stellar example of the style, but definitely poundable if need be.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, 5.6%. A very tasty wheatbeer. Pours amber with good-sized white foamy head, detect hints of vanilla. A good beer and feels like it’s stronger than the alcohol content suggests
