Pours a slightly hazy orange golden. Plenty of wheat and citrus hops on the nose. Plenty of wheat and toasted goodness, banana and clove flavor. Wet on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Trader Joes. Aroma is a little sweet with some yeasty qualities. Crisp and clean graininess with some more yeast. Almost a cross between an American wheat and a German hefe. Pretty tasty.

355 ml bottle. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of wheat, clove and some tingling peppery notes. Flavour of wheat, sweet malts, clove, grains, citrus and low bitterness. Very sharp tartness in the finish with sweet notes. Light bodied and slick mouthfeel. Really refreshing and summery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed golden pour with a white head. There’s a nice bit of banana and clove on the nose with some sweet bread and wheat notes. Mild citrus, a bit of water, and maybe a hint of grass. The flavor is a bit bland, but there are some of the same banana and clove notes. Sweet bready malt and wheat with a mild citrus zest note in the background.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured a hazy golden orange hue w/ a small lingering white head. Medium aromas of wheat, banana, and cloves. Flavors followed scent. This is a light bodied beer and nicely seasoned, the clove is a note and not a dominate flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden in color with soft white head that settles off quickly. Only hint of sediment, considering its "unfiltere". Light fruity aroma...lemon, banana in aroma and taste. Not a bad summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow-golden pour with a thick white head. Aromas are classic hefeweizen. Banana, melon and some light fruit. Some bubble gum and a whiff of spice. Loads of wheat character. It’s an easy-drinking hefeweizen - pretty light on the clove and spice, but okay. A bit too sweet for me.

11oz bottle poured into snifter. Hazy, pale orange body with medium, off-white head.
Aroma of wheat and bananas. Tastes his if smells. Very light in body with a short finish. Nice enough, could easily quaff a few of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle received in trade from Arminjewell. This beer is hazy golden light brown. A short lived head. A light nose offers some clove and oranges. Fruit is tasted and is prominent. Softer yeast and cloves, too. Just a bit of spice. Some wheat and banana notes appear late. This beer warms nicely with more spice and fruit tasted then. I poured it too cold and should have waited for it to warm. This is well done.

Spotted this had gotten a second entry for 2012+ so I grabbed a bottle. Quite pleased. Didn’t have much bad to say about the 2011. Very nice yeast flavors. A good taste of the usual spices, though pretty strong on clove. Aroma stands out as particularly good. Appearance is to style, so, meh. A winner for F.W.
