2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours mostly clear and with little head even with a lot of bottle agitation and a strong pour. Aroma and taste are okay, reminiscent of a good German hefe, but lacking body more than anything.

pours yellow with moderate white head.typical banana and clove aroma.flavor is the same.2nd frankenmuth beer ive tried in as many days and gotta say im not impressed.dont get me wrong they are drinkable but being from michigan and the great breweries you have to compete with here you gotta put things out that are better than average,and thats what ive seen from their products thus far.drinkable but i would choose another hefe out of the beer cooler next time.

This beer is close to franzincaner (sp?) - clove like aroma and taste. There is a slight emptiness to it when the yeast is not stirred in. overall, delicious, refreshing, and smooth... A bit more up front esters would suit my tastes better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours cloudy yellow with a thin fluffy white head. Nose has some of the banana/clove mix with mineral dryness and sweet wheat. Taste is much the same. Not as pungent and clean as I’d like it--more doughy yeast clouds it all up. But it’s flavorful and smooth, with tropical fruit and light spicing on the finish. Pretty big body, slick and smooth with ample carbonation. Surprised by this one--it’s pretty good.

Has a good pour, cloudy and hazy. Have had from bottle and tap, as a wheat advocate its very comparable to some of my favorites, like Paulener. Not quite near the Bells wheat series best offering but a solid Hefe you can get if you can find it. Tastes like a Hefe and the grains, background of Hefe are present especially in aftertaste. One of the better beers out of MI, for an ABV of its nature. I’d purchase this more than once as it is a completely solid beer. Frankenmuths finest.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp citrusy aroma with a quickly dissolving head and urine color. That aside it had a medium sweet taste to it with a bold citrusy finish, a little above normal for a hefeweizen. Definitely a repeat purchase.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a straw gold yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, clove, banana, and a slight toast. Flavor matches well and is very drinkable. I could definitely drink many of these and not get bored. Extra points for that.

On tap. Aroma has notes of banana, spice, clove and citrus. Cloudy pale yellow hue with a white head that left OK lace. Light bodied and average carbonation. Decent.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Florida Craft Beer and Wing Fest 2012… Hazy straw-colored ale with a small, white head. The bouquet offers nuances of clove and banana with whispers of smoke and bubblegum. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with prickly carbonation. The well-balanced, sufficiently bittered flavor presents overripe banana with a hint of clove and a rumor of acidity. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and a tad dry. Well crafted and cleanly brewed. Simply not a favorite style of mine.
