2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The head was small and white when it was poured and it contained fine sized bubbles.The head quickly dissipated.The body was murky-hazy and had a lot of carbonation.The hue was medium yellow and the nose was the traditional banana and clove.There was no lacing with this beer.This beer lacked flavor and the mouthfeel was tingly on my tongue, thin and smooth.This is not a good example of what a good German Wheat beer should taste like.This was a very dissapointing experience as German Wheat beers are one of my all-time favorite styles of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not as harsh as a german wheat in that it was easier on the palate, not saturating. Cloves and banana in the nose. cloudly color with a banana-ish spice body and finish. Like i said...classic german wheat, just (i dont want to say toned down) a far more palatable experience to a novice. enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Hazy, bright amber appearance with an average size white head and decent lacing. Subdued, wheaty aroma with spicy accents. Some hefe characteristics in the taste, but with less emphasis on banana/bubblegum and more on citrus and spice. Medium bodied mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation. Tart, short lived finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointing head on pour, then gone. Had a hard time getting the yeast out of the bottle, so it may not have been stored well. Has some of the right yeast signature flavors and aroma to a lesser degree, but not enough wheat and complex flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazed golden liquid with a off white head that is gone betore the first quaff. Full frontal wheat aromas, with faint undertones of bananas and cloves. Light, thin and spritzy in feel. I had this a few years ago and did not think much of it. Much better than I remember. Some nice weiss qualities in this one. Sweet wheat tickled by bananas and cloves. Lacks depth but quenching and balanced. Interesting citric and wheat sweetness flavors blend well with chalky yeast in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle conditioned)Lemony citrus aroma with soft wheat & hint of clove. Orange, hazy body. Smooth wheat dominates the flavor with zesty citrus, phenols, and an odd puckering lactic twang at the end. Medium body has a watery quality. Interesting.

tap-one of the most bland wheat beers i have had-little in all departments of aroma, flavor and palate. very thin and not much banana/clove flavor. boring

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep yellow with fizzy head that disappeared quickly. Has a mild wheat flavor and aroma. Not bad but hard to compare this to the mother of all wheats, New Glarus's Solstice.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This brew poured a cmall head of quickly disappearing fine white bubbles and a hightly carbonated light yellow transparent body. very mild malt fruity aroma with a slightly fizzy initial mouthfeel that lingers for a while then ends in a mild hop flavor. It flavor is mildly hopped ywith notes of fruit bread and malt. Not a typical Hefe IMHO.
