3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Very honey-like colour. Very nice honey aroma. The taste is a bit more bitter, but with a sweet finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frothy head atop a hazy body with visible carbonation. Palate and body is a bit thin. Nose and flavor are a template of the usual hefe characteristics: some clove, banana, chewy yeast and appetizing quality. This being said, it is all a bit muted. Maybe due to freshness, or just not one of the top tier hefes. Enjoyable in a prosaic way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much smell or cloudiness. German wheat beers are so much better than American ones. Still, one can only get so excited about the style. A little banana in it. Not bad, but not amazing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A low citrusy aroma is detectable. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. The flavor has some citrusy quality with a light dry finish on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured with the typical huge head and standard cloudy yellow appearance. However, the aroma was lacking any bananas and cloves with only a note of citrus. Flavor followed suit, altough some level of spicing did come through (not sure what it was). A nice wheat beer, but sure to be beaten.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma was weak but there were some hints of banana and cloves plus a bit of breadiness. Taste was watery at first followed by hints of banana and lemon. Not much going on with the palate. I wanted banana and lemon and I did not get that here. Not a bad Hefeweizen but I’ve had quite a few better ones.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy golden with a smaller white head that did not really retain. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, wheat, banana bread and cereal. A bit light compared to others of the same style. Flavor of citrus, pilsner malt, cereal, tingly carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(0.5L Bottle) Pours hazy with think white head. Aroma is somewhat lacking compared to other similar Hefeweizens. Also lacks some of the fruity flavoring. All in all, not bad... but nothing special either.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was an alright hefeweizen although I didnt think It was outstanding. White foamy head, opaque dark yellow body and a very yeasty aroma.
