4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2011 Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy pale gold brew with a thin white head. Ample lacing as the glass is drained. Excellent aroma of wheat, close, citrus. Flavorful for a hefe, with a smooth and almost sweet wheat flavor blending into a spicy end with lingering lemon sour in the aftertaste. This owuld probably be great with a slice of lemon in it - I don’t have any on hand to try. Nice palate - thin as you’d expect but still satisfying. As with all Frankenmuth brews, very refined with good complexity, absolutely noting off or unpleasant. I hope this is around all summer...

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy blond color with medium head. Fine spice aroma and taste. Medium body. No hops. Hefeweizen is too bland for my tastes, but this is a fine domestic example.

On tap at the brewpub.
Hazy yellow straw. Aroma is clove, banana, nutty, yeast, pretty true to style. Taste is strong banana with some bitterness, a little bit tart. Not too bad.

Tap at the Corner Bar. Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head. Apple and pear esters mix with a bit of honey and light malt. A rare beer that tastes better than it smells.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
7-22-06 MBG. Cloudy golden deecent off-white head. Huge banana aroma hints of clove and I guessed cinnamon, but according to description it’s nutmeg. Flavor much the same, subdued, flattens out at times. Tad more carbonation would help a bunch. As is pretty sessionable hefe.

The pour reveals a hazy blonde color with a thin white head. Very decent aroma and flavor of cloves, nutmeg, bananas and bubble-gum. The palate is light and oily and the carbonation is lively.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a very hazy no visible carbonation dark yellow colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty banana and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt fruity banana wheat yeast and mild dough. A decent brew that I would consider buying again.
