3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall, one of the finest hefe-weizens available on a consistant basis. Starts sweet, with clove and dry grass aroma. It follows through a bit on the dry side, and maintains a smooth and fruity tone on the palate. You don’t want to pollute this one with an orange or lemon slice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
the typical cloudy golden appearance, aroma is a little yeasty. flavor is a mild sweetness, but not as much as other wheat beers i’ve had. the only thing i didnt like was the bitterness that stayed in my mouth after i had swallowed. not a bad hefe, but i’ve had better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured the bottle carefully because it was bottle conditioned and unfiltered. It poured a slightly cloudy golden liquid with a medium white creamy head that gradually dissipated. The lacing was quite nice. The aroma was classic wheat beer ... banana, vanilla, and citrus. The mouthfeel was quite smooth, almost velvety while the flavor started off with that sour-fruit taste that wheat beers are known for. The middle presented hints of clove and the finish was crisp, clean and dry.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad hefe. Pours a hazy yellow with a large diminishing head. Very slight lacing. Aroma was a bit skunky. Made me think I was cracking open a Heinieken or Becks. Taste was of the style, clove and banana. Very well balanced. Was pretty smooth but the mouthfeel leaves something to be desired. Slight bitterness after the swallow. Not a bad beer but I’d go with Weihenstephaner or Paulaner for a nice Hefe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp spicy aroma. Murky beige body under a pure white head. Bubbly. Nice bits of yeast floating around. Sweet, fruitiness with a crisp finish. Not bad overall. I think mine could have done without the sun tan in the green bottle on the way from Germany.
