3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good but too thin. It has a nice yeast and sweet malt aroma. The appearance is hazy but not full of particulates. The flavor is a nice balance of malt and hops. It has the fruity taste that is so vital to good Hefe-Weizen beer. The palate on the other hand is thin. Aftertaste is sweet but fades quickly leaving the impression that this is a dry style. Overall a good beer but there are better wheat beers out there.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large fizzy white head, nice carbonation -- looks really good for a wheat beer. Best part of the aroma: no banana! In my wheat beer experience that’s quite rare. Aroma does have a light wheaty malt smell. The flavour of wheat, malt and grain is pleasant but mild, it needs more oomph! A nice summer patio beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Looks fantastic - a dark yellow with a huge fluffy white head and tons of active bubbles - lovely. Very light yeasty aroma. Light taste as well - bland and watery with only hints of malt and maybe some spice but I’m stretching. Too bad, I loved how this looked, but I won’t be buying this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2005 Bottle (500ml) - little drunk this afternoon, last balcony tasting of the day. Pours lemony yellow, cloudy - plenty of bubbly white head. Aroma of lemon furniture polish, sour corn mash, malt, and cedar - corny grain. Interesting lacing. Flavour is fairly bland, orange and wheat and malt and grainy bitterness to finish. Not bad, not great.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - July 2005
Pours a medium golden color, cloudy but not very cloudy for a hefe.Head is abundant, white and wide (leaves somewhat a lacing). Aroma is very slightly yeasty and very neutral overall. Taste is the same, lacking the sting, citrus and tartness one would expect from a wheat. Aftertaste is almost non existant or very neutral. Overall a pretty unimpresive brew, which further disappointed me because it is one of the fews that i have the brand´s glassware to taste from, furthermore, i would say the glass itself is far more usefull than the beer!!
Not bad but completely forgetable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A medium yellow color, cloudy but not very cloudy for a hefe. Medium full head. Light wheat malt aroma. Subtle wheat malt and bananas interplay with a wee bit of bitter hops. Very sweet without the balancing yeasty, sharp, peppery bite I prefer in a perfect hefe. Merely average.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Cloudy yellow colour with a large white foam. Not much aroma but some yeasty and citric elements. Taste of wheat bread but very average, short and slightly fruity finish. Drinkable but boring.
