3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 3rd in the series of flip top bottles, served in weizen glass of course: The pours displays true weizen characteristics of cloudy golden hue topped by a lasting thick frothy head and excellent lacing. The nose detects banana, lemongrass, and clove yeast esters along with wheat and grainy malts. The taste starts with a slight fruity twang and some wheat overtones supported by a healthy dose of allspice (not really clove like). The finish is dryer than most weizens and is even a bit chalky. The mouth feel has soft persistent carbonation and is too dry for the style making it not as refreshing as the better examples of the genre. Well more than a solid brew it is lacking the body and roundness on the palate to be something I would like the drink on a regular basis.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow color with a beautiful thick and lasting white head. Citrusy aroma with some banana. Flavor hints at having a distinctive fruity flavor but in the manages only to seem a bit watered-down. Not a bad beer but really not anything too special either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beneath a huge pillow of nearly white foam, the beer is a hazy straw color. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of tangy wheat, some tart lemon, and unripe banana.
Semi sweet and delicious wheat bread flavors, accompanied by yeast, clove, banana, and a touch of tangy hop. Refreshing beer nicely in balance. Light to medium body, good carbonation.

Bottled. Nice aroma of lemon and banana. Cloudy, dark yellow color, white fine head, fair lace. Light sweet, bit citric, lemon, hint of banana. Light to medium body. Nice Weizen but I like them fuller and a little sweeter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In the 355 mL flip cap bottle from Cyclone Liquors. Pours a beautiful murky opaque dark brownish-gold (burnt umber, perhaps?) color with a gigantic wheat beer frothy pillow of a head that completely fills the top half of a 0.5L glass. Outstanding appearance. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit like the smell of my mother’s old Sunbeam mixer whipping up a batch of banana cake batter- that brief reminder of ozone and banana cream pie. Flavor lacks any lemon or banana or cloves. It is simply thick. A very thick palate. Mouth and tongue coating delightfulness. What this beer lacks in flavor, it makes up in character.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flip-cap bottle. Pours rich and gold with a nice head of white. Smells of metallicized wheat, with bready banana undertones. Very sharp and watery, with hints of clove and banana. Decent mouthfeel. Middle of the road stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a long-lasting white head. Yeast and bread in the aroma, but not much yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Some fruity notes, but not as pronounced as other hefeweizens. Moderate carbonation. Not bad, but a pretty mediocre beer.
