2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This German Hefeweizen pours a slightly hazy gold color from a 500ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head with strong lacing. Aroma is malty and fruity and not very estery. A medium to light bodied Hefe. Malts are fruity and sweet but the lack the banana and clove esters. Light and refreshing but seems to be more of a wheat than a hefe. Its missing that fruitiness and the soft fluffy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Clean and smooth. There is a touch of that banana and clove at the finish, but just a touch and it comes in way too late. Kind of bland tasting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours moderately cloudy yellow with a noticeable carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is mildly of yeast, wheat, spice, and a bit of banana. Flavor is the same components, slightly stronger. Finish is moderately long and a little spicy. Fairly good; a middle-of-the-road German hefeweizen, but could use a bit stronger flavor and aroma.

Poured the nice cloudy yellow with a large white head. Looked very nice in my Paulaner weiss glass. The aroma was very faint of banana and spice. Flavor was also lacking, too watery. Too thin is a good way to put it. Middle of the road German hefe, certainly not at the top of its class.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Cloudy, carbonating, orange beer with a large, off-white head. Weak aroma, with ripe bananas, cloves, some citrus and yeast. A bit thin in the mouth, with spices, yeast, citrus and some wheat in the flavor. Could definately use a bit "more of everything". Long spiced finish with some bitterness. Refreshing, but not worth seeking out again. (060723)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours cloudy honey color, nice white head. Aroma is light with weak orange charcter and yeast primarily. Boring, refreshing and highly drinkable is the best way to describe this one. It’s simple, with predominant yeast flavor and wateryness with slight orange in background. Not a great hefeweiss, too simple.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2006 500ml bottle - Not bad, but not great...for weissbier I would have like a lot more...uhm...weiss-ness from it. I found it a little thin and one dimentional. There are some good flavours in there but they’re afraid to get up and announce themselves. The head on this thing was huge. Not bad, but...meh. There are so many better beers out there in this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great looking pour for the style, a hazy straw body with a huge rocky head. The aroma is pretty much of an equal balance between fresh banana and a wheaty tartness with a dash of clove thrown in for snicks. Spritzy in the mouth. It tastes of spiced up wheat with a little banana, an inkling of bubblegum, clove, and a small lemon twist. Gassy, but not bad.
