2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
My second Evil Genius beer, I think. 12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered dulled orange-tan. Massive off-white head, mostly due to infection and/or overcarbonation. I’d try and forgive it, but I’d guess this is just wildly infected, considering they describe it themselves as traditional Hefeweizen. Zesty and soured wheat...not in a good way. Pretty bad beer, horrible for the style. Clearly Evil Genius has bottling issues...

Bottle from mari’s. Pours hazy yellow with no head retention at all. The aroma has a musty lemon peel, slightly yeasty. The taste has a lemon lime funky taste. Weirdly tart and not really to the style.

Sample at a beer event at Fado. Hazy blonde pour with a slight white head. Toasted wheat notes in the nose. Fairly fully whole wheat flavors plus a tinge of sour. Bright flavors muddled with a puffed wheat barricade. Decent hopped up wheat notes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Date tasted: July 18, 2013 ... Glassware: weizen glass... Occasion: fourth 90+ degree day--and looking for a beer to soothe and satisfy....Appearance: hazy golden body that clouds thickly; zero lacing and swiftly settled head don’t endear this beer aesthetically... Aroma: some strong bubblegum and clove aromas; some banana and some astringent yeast... Palate: light to medium bodied; substantial enough to be considered in the mouth...Taste: mildly flavored of smoked cloves and some banana, but overall rather refreshingly clean and clear of obstructive taste... Overall: this beer didn’t "lure his prey" quite as aggressively as hoped for; a serviceable hefe that cools the drinker but does not reward him; a safe choice....

Sampled on draft this beer poured a cloudy yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy banana, citrus, bread and wheat. The flavor was tangy and sweet orange, banana, bread, wheat and a bit of honey. Medium length sweet orange, banana and bread finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite nice.
