2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a hazy light yellow with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, bananas, wheat and ass (what is that other smell I detect - yuck). Watery body. I really didn’t care for this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden color with a large, white, bubbly head that eventually fades away into a medium-size ring. Strangest aroma in a hefe I’ve ever smelled--cloves and bananas; very appetizing though unexpected. The flavor is a bit lacking; there is still the clove and banana, but they are not very prominent; aside from the flavors from the yeast, there is practically not malt or hop flavor at all. Thin but very clean mouthfeel. Surprising beer; not bad for a hefe.

Excellent beer to sit down and enjoy with friends in front of a hockey game. The beer pours so nice and leaves anice head on the glass. The flavor is made even better with squeezed lemon at he bottom of the glass. The smoothness of it all brings me back all the more

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smoove with a "v". Pours a hazy orabge color, thin head dissapears within minutes. Aroma is wheaty, banana, cloves, and pepper. Flavor is spicy and sweet. Orange peel, coriander, banana, malts, and pepper find their way into the flavor. Palate is smooth and a little thin. An excellent summer-time cooler for hot, humid days. Very refreshing, and for that, this beer scores bonus points!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice cloudy amber/gold. Smallish head. Very aromatic in the glass, bananas and spice, maybe green apple. Very mild hop aroma, Hallertau/Hersbruck predominant. As is typical w/ FD’s brews, the aroma is more promising than the beer itself. Wheaty, yeasty, mild banana clove flavor, I was expecting more from this (and other FD beers) based on the nose. If they ever get the beers to live to live up to the promise of the aroma, they will be great! All in all, a decent middle of the road American Hefe.

Interesting label as usual!! 12 oz bottle. For some reason I didn’t expect much from this beer but it was pretty good. It had the nice clove and banana aroma and flavor that a good Hefe will have. Nice and crisp and refreshing. I’ll have it again.
