2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Firestone Walker Taproom, Buellton. An unclear orange to golden beer with a small white head. The aroma has a solid dose of orange, with banana and clove notes. Medium body, a bit low on carbonation considering the style. Cloves, banana and some orange and lemon in the flavor. Quite dry, that’s nice. Finishes as it starts. Not bad, just a little boring. 130809

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.

3.2 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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Unfiltered. Bright, cloudy, golden orange appearance with a slightly off-white head. Rich spicy clove, orange citrusy, juicy citrusy, wheat malty aroma that’s quite nice. A bit bready, spicy yeasty, big orange/lemon citrusy flavor with lots of vanilla, banana and clove elements. Really tastes like they used a German Hefe yeast to me. Definitely better than the previous version and an excellent wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a lasting white head that leaves decent lace. Aromas are malt forward, bready, grainy wheat. Low citrusy notes, peppery, clove, medium yeast phenol. Very light isoamyl acetate. Malt dominant. Flavors are bready, grainy and wheat like, a bit of vanilla, light clove, some esters. Malt dominates the flavor, low bitterness, finishes pretty crisp with a light herbal note (hop I’d assume). Lightly chewy body, pretty dry finish, fuller carbonation. Pretty decent wheat.
