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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: hazy golden orange pour with medium-sized white head. Aroma is bubble gum, wheat, caramel, and a spicy yeast note. Flavor is bread, wheat, bubble gum, caramel, light orange and yeasty notes. Palate is mostly sweet with a soft spice tingle. Easy drinking, nice flavors; almost a cross between a belgian ale and a hefeweizen.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours nearly clear deep gold with copper hues and weak off white head. The aroma has a pleasing mix of citrus and banana with a mild level of citrus like tartness cutting through the sweeter notes as well as a bit of grainy malts. The taste begins with a smooth blend of yeasty spices and banana notes. The banana grows some to midway but is able to restrain itself from getting out of control. It seems to be a bit on the sweet side.
