3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of malt and bread. Clear dark amber color, off-white head that stays at 1", sheets of lace. Taste is caramel malt that turns slightly bitter in a medium carbonated swallow, then moves smoothly to a finish that turns toward toffee. An unusual Hefeweizen, but not totally at odds with the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Cloudy orange colour, medium and quite durable foamy white head. Bready aromas with some crushed grains, some spice and dough. Taste is rather sweet with some honey, caramel, bread, dough, some cooked vegetables and just a touch of banana. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, a bit empty finish. Not a typical hefeweizen, but its drinkable though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle. Cloudy medium orange pour, initial soapy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of ripening vegetables, not much else. Flavor leans to the bland side of the spectrum, very light clove accents, some banana flavoring, some ripening vegetable notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Not one of Germany’s finest.

Bottle. Right off the bat, I love that the guy on the label reminds me of my grandpa! This pours a light amber-gold, and is quite hazy, with a dense lasting cream coloured head. Soft and bready, with light caramel/bread crust notes and rustic yeast character. Simple and satisfying.

This is certainly not a Hefeweizen in the traditional sense and I’m really not even sure I’d call it a Hefe. Pours an amber color with a decent sized white head that dissipates rather quickly. Good aromas of sweet malt, caramel, bread and some musty notes. No banana or clove flavors but more sweet malt, some dark fruit and maybe a little wheat. Light-medium body with some hop bitterness at the end. An interesting beer.......not bad.
