UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Update - had this on draft at the Reading Oktoberfest this past weekend, don't know what I was thinking the first time around when I tasted this, but this beer was much better now, maybe my taste buds for German wheat beers have been enhanced, this had a nice cloudy murky golden appearance, huge bubbly soft white lacy head, lots of spiciness, lots of banana flavors & coriander, very very smooth & drinkable, excellent wheat beer

I don't vary much on my rating of aroma, but this one simply smells bad; the flavor, fortunately, is not as bad as the smell, but it isn't above average

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 16, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 bottle-pours a cloudy orange hue with a huge white head that was sudsy, like a bathtub full of soap. nice yeast, orange peal, banana aroma with notes of spice and hops. Flavors were spicy, banana, clove and even some spicy hops on the finish. I really liked this one and it was gone in an instant it seems. A great hefe if you ask me!

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2003
Hazy yellow with a good head and very good lacing, thin-bodied. Leather yeast and grapefruit aroma, could detect some spices and a very faint hint of banana, more mild aroma than some other hefes. Taste is spicy and wheaty, the mouthfeel is fizzy but dry. Their dunkel is better, overall an drinkable hefe, but some on the market are better.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Hazy, cloudy, gold colored body w/ a nice frothy white head; typical of hefe style. Cloves and wheat malt very apparent, slightly yeasty, but banana/vanilla/bubble gum aromas are missing; however, cardboardy(oxidized) aromas are more apparent than the standard aromas. That's too bad! Wheat malt and clove flavors present, but so are oxidized/cardboard flavors. Neither hop nor malt flavor are truly dominant and aftertaste is of wheat malt and cardboard/papery. Very high carbonation, expectant of style, but it's missing the creaminess and smoothness of hefe style. Very dissappointing, although I know this is normally a very, very good beer. I'll rate higher based on past experience, but I'm not quite sure who to blame for this bad example. Whether it's the distributor or the store, it doesn't really matter. This is just a travesty to this particular beer to be treated so poorly. I will re rate this at a later date and the score will be higher!
