3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DRAUGHT AT THE BREWPUB. DRAUGHT because I am way too good to use the word DRAFT because I want to pretend like I am from England. The coloUr is yellow and their is a smell white head on it. The smell is fruity and full of lemons and orange and some other citrus fruits, but its pretty much dominated by those flavors. The flavour is sweet and fruity, full of carbonation, very refreshing. Thank god they did not put an orange slice with this, as I would have gone apeshit. Good beer, this is one of the best breweries in NC. Thanks for keeping the beer fresh and on DRAUGHT.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at FB. Cloudy deep yellow pour, substantial body, looks milky, similar to a Nigori sake. Fluffly white head imparts thick clumpy lacing. The aroma is wheat, banana, light clove, taffy and toffy. Fruity esters abound as well and mask alcohol astringency nicely. The flavor is very muted all around, banana and clove, along with wheat all very subtle. That’s a shame, it started off nicely, i wish it were a little more expressive. It is balanced however, with mild sweetness, light tart bitterness and low acidity. The finish is lightly drying, banana and wheat malt notes lingering a short while. Not very crisp but still rather refreshing. The mouthfeel is soft, light-medium bodied and prickly with carbonation. Average. What bothers me about this average score is the fact that the brewer is incredibly talented; I hope this recipe is tweaked in the future. It’s just too reserved and/or sedated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow color with a nice white head. I immediately pick up a banana taffy smell when I put my nose to this one but there are some citrus qualities as well. Sure enough both of those things come through in the flavor but it’s pretty reserved. Lively carbonation gives this one a bit of a seltzer quality at the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Hazy yellow/gold with a respectable head and lace. Fragrant ditrus aroma with a hint of banana and clove, but not to the extent of a German hefe. Fine, lively effervescence complement a light body, but mouthfeel is a little thin, but clean. Subdued light malt flavors, and a faint sourness are pleasing enough, with some fleeting dry bitterness right at the end. Drinkable, refreshing, but just a little too restrained.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. The nose is tame with evident wheat and citrus. The flavor is light and not that sweet. Notes of banana, cereal, light creamed corn are present. The finish hints at spices. This is drinkable but not on the level of many of its authentic German counterparts.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft pint at the Flying Saucer, Raleigh. Orange-amber with no head, but a standing milky foam. Banana aroma. Flavors are tart and fruity but the yeastiness and esthers aren’t predominate ... this comes across as a golden ale with a bit of a weizen character. Good. (#2832, 4/27/2007)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dirty yellow, nice pillowy head. Very "wheaty" aroma. Y’know, that smell that says "hey, you’ve got yourself a wheat beer here"? Well, that’s what this smells like. Flavor of crackers and bread, with a nice snappy hop finish. uncomplicated and tasty. At 07 Hickory Hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Speakeasy. Pours hazy golden with hardly any head. Smell is okay-coriander, light citrus, yeasty esters. Flavor is suprisingly weak and bland. And the finish is rusty. I was hoping it was the tap lines but from the other reviews it seems it wasnt. Even at 5%, I wouldnt call this easy drinking. A little dissapointing.
