3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Poured a cloudy dark-straw color...lovely chunky 3-finger cap that lasts! Lots of effervescent activity. Not overly perfumed to the nose had little of the standard hefe-weiss aromas of banana-cloves... very subdued. Started with a mild but refreshing maltiness which then gets peppery as the carbonation kicks the palate and the mild fruity-spicy "bubblegum" tastes are imparted then finishes sweet and sour with a slight sweetish malt after taste.
A good commercial weissbrau, subdued, light body...but very thirst quenching and very drinkable.

Pours cloudy yellow with a nice fluffy Weiss head. Great banana aroma. MOuthfeel has the neccesary grittiness. I am quite surprised that his beer is not rated higher. I think that it is a great representation of German wheats.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a very good Hefeweizen. Tasted great from first sip to last. Not much head out of the bottle. It didn't matter. Still a good drinking beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy tannnish color with a white minimal head. Faint aroma of cloves and yeast. Flavor lacks some character. Mild not much body. Still sweet and a little tart which leads to a pleasant aftertaste.

Sweet mild taste. It's creamy head disapears quickly. There is a fruity aroma and a sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I'd say that the character of this beer comes from the carbonation at least as much as it comes from the grain. The taste and aftertaste are very like a wheat bread, but there's a sourness that comes from the heavy carbonation. Just behind the initial bready taste is the taste of unadulterated club soda. The beer lacks the sweetness of other weissbeers I've had, which is unfortunate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big foamy head, and a little on the cloudy side, but not as cloudy as other hefes I've had. Also, not as much citrus taste as I was hoping for either. The flavor was disappointing, but the beer is still very drinkable, just not what I was expecting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orangish-yellow color. Nice medium head. Contrary to previous posts, minimal lacing with mine. Nice citrusy aroma. Good balance between slight sweetness and slight bitternes. Taste is not as strong as appearance and aroma would indicate. Minimal aftertaste.

Had this on draught in Chicago. This was an outstanding weissbier. Crisp, refreshing, not too heavy. Recommend to anyone.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy with thick white head. Excellent wheat beer taste. Not the citrusy wheat beer, but flavors of clove and yeast.
