2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical hefeweizen. Hazy orange body, medium off-white head. Banana aroma. Banana flavour. Tart and thick don’t go together as nicely as you might think.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge, light-yellow dense head over pale orange beer with a mossy shine. Lots of banana- and other fruity esters, a bit soapy. Place for surprise in the taste: apart, and in fact dominating the banana/citrus flavours, there’s a wry, nearly bitter overlying flavour. Maybe a bit walnutpeel-like, but nowhere that intense. Warming up, converting to more usual flavours with a marked wheat presence. Wheat slickness, medium bodied. Not really bad, in a sort of indifferent way. I might have accorded another point, weren’t it for the can it came out of. The day that Burgundy fills cans with Romanée Conti , I’ll accept cans.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very cloudy orangy/yellow with a very thick bubbly white head. Strong aromas of clove, banana, yeast, and some other spices. Flavor is a little off: very yeasty, spicy, hint of banana and some other fruit, and fairly metallic. Lots of carbonation, too much. Palate is medium, slightly fruity and spicy, but mostly metallic and yeast. Carbonation hides the flavor too much, and it’s way too metallic. Not a bad brew, but not very good either.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 pint, 9 fl oz bottle found at Lou’s in Augusta. Rather uniformly murky yellow body with a five or six finger thick off-white head that dissipates a bit more quickly than expected, but not completely by any means. Head retention is better than average. Smells overwelmingly citrussy with hints of banana. Banana and citrus dominate the taste. A bit more spicy than most hefeweizens... Nice full-bodied beer. Very tasty and pleasant. Best Hefeweizen I’ve ever had by leaps and bounds. And 2.19$ per bottle, it’s a steal.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a nice head. Lost of banana and fruit aroams. Flavors of yeast, grapefruit and more banana. Very well done, nice body and just the right amount of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a nice light yellow with a really good foamy head. Scents of cinnamon, yeast and wheat. VERY effervescent, very light, on the lines of a brut champagne. Very light mouthfeel, with some clove midway through the taste. Some light sugary sweetness.
