3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clear, light yellow hue. Smells like lemons and light orange, yeasty. Smells are very crisp. Smooth on first sip, and quite a bit heavier than it looks. I enjoyed this one more than the dunkel. Flavors are middle-of-the-road and slightly sweet. Nothing outstanding, but not upsetting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Considering one can commonly find it at Safeway, the Club Weisse upholds a high level of quality.
Frothy, pillowy head, medium-sized bubbles, persistent and white. Active and persistent carbonation.
Light golden in color, no haze. Typical banana aroma, not cloying.
Tart flavor spectrum; distinct lemon peel. Also banana/bubblegum. A strange metallic
dryness nicely balances any residual sweetness, though it is a bit strange.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light straw color with a touch of haze and a typical white head. Over ripe banana aroma. Sweet wheat flavors with a heavier ester presence. Just not not sit that well.

is a huge, frothy puff of a head a good thing? i dunno, but this beer had the major pillow puff on top of the clear golden bubbles. and i do mean bubbles. like watching a champagne glass. surprisingly strong yeasty/banana aroma. i quite liked it. and the flavor was nearly an exact duplicate of the scent -- only with a bit of a dry aftertaste and somewhat watery body. i liked this better than franz's regular hefe.

Beautiful foamy white head over a golden brown body. Very good wheat beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear dark golden color not unlike MGD with a creamy white head. Yeasty, banana, estery, doughy aroma. Sharp acidic, fruity, spicy taste. Not as attractive looking as the hefe version but quite tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, golden yellow with a big whit head that quickly settles down. Slightly fruity, spicy aroma that is not as strong as some other wheat beers. The beer has a very clean flavor and finishes crisp and slightly sweet. Malts, some spices, and a little bit of yeastiness comes through. Somewhat lacking in flavor for a wheat, but not too bad overall. Not as good as their regular and dunkel wheat beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden. Huge white head with nice, slightly lace. Fruity, aromatic and banana nose, with a bit of sweet and warm malt. Tastes light, fruity, clean and sour. Medium malt, but more would be better. Aftertaste is sweet and dry malty with a bit of banana.

I do miss the flavor element which the yeast imparts. Still, lovely clean appearance with plenty of banana and cloves. Very good.

This is not good. Take the taste and body from a wheat beer and this is what you get.
