3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap.
Appearance is a hazy light to medium yellow with a fizzy white head.
Smells strongly of clove and bubblegum with a little bit of pineapple.
Flavor is clove, banana, and bubblegum. There is a moderate pineapple taste as well which is quite refreshing. One downside would be the mouthfeel is quite watery.
Overall is pretty tasty hefe. Just a little more body would make for a perfect summer thirst quencher.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled a pint of this beer at the brewpub in Winston-Salem, NC. The beer had a light, somewhat cloudy, straw-gold color with an average-to-small white head that had average retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma featured bananas, but also had some lighter notes of straw, lemon, cloves, bubble gum, and a bit of wheat. The beer had a light wheaty taste and was a touch sweet with some banana character, but also had a bit of bitterness. It was a fairly wet beer with a lighter body, and had low carbonation and a light mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer 51 Asheville trip. Cloudy yellow, slight head. Aroma is lightly of wheat, bit of clove. Flavor is wheaty, slight clove, slight banana, hint of bubblegum - appropriate to the style, but wish it had been ramped up a bit more. More banana than anything else. Too bad, I had really hoped for an awesome hefe on the trip.

Tap at universal joint - pours a cloudy yellow orange in the dim pub light with a white head. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, and clove. Taste leans sweet, palate crisp finishes thin. Overall, solid hefe, though not spectacular.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy and golden with a moderate head. I get a slight citrusy smell off it and a somewhat wheaty taste. Definitely pairs well with the slice of lemon they served it with.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria in Asheville. A hazy yellow-gold color with a thick creamy head on top. This is light-bodied with wheat, banana, and clove flavors. A light herbal spice joins in but it’s a touch thin. Definitely a good choice for the summer though; thirst quenching and pretty tasty.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to pint. Looks good; golden and hazy with nice lacing. Smells pretty good too; yeast with a zesty citrus scent (which could be the orange slice it was served with too). Tastes decent; could have a little more zip on it though. Docked for feel because it’s lacking hefe kick. Still decent though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brew pub. Pours cloudy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is weak to medium acidy dry fruity a bit yeasty. Flavor is almost sour, acidy, thin body, a bit yeasty, fruity citric and fairly bitter. Finishes bitter acidy. Darn good summer brew, would like to see this brewed with fresh raspberries.
