3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This specialty beer pours hazy yellow, but without the customary Weißbier sediment. There is a huge, long-lasting snow white head that leaves good lacing, and a strong fruity aroma along with a touch of alcohol. The initial palate features the citrus and banana fruit flavors of a typical Weißbier along with a bit of its characteristic spiciness. That flavor profile quickly eases into a bright, hop-bittered, and light-bodied Pils finish. Brewer notes indicate this beer is a blend of 53% top fermented Weißbier, and 47% bottom fermented Pilsner. This beer weighs in at 5.1% ABV. (The Pilsner character of this beer becomes more prominent as it comes to room temperature. I preferred the Weißbier character of this beer, but it is an interesting blend.) Good!

Bottle. Lives up to the commercial description quite aptly. This is in interesting blend ... it carries the fruity esther aroma and creamy texture of a weizen, but has a steady mid-current component of a continental pils ... evenly biscuity and tightly hopped. Nice change up. (#5571, 7/5/2014)

Taste: soft clean and smooth. Milder carbonation. True blend of styles. Milder wheat notes with soft bod. Clean, crisper lager backing. Still wheat side was dominant here, Nice drinkable hybrid.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very hazy yellow color with a tiny white head that fades away quickly. Aroma is banana and lemon. The taste is exactly what I expected. Half banana and lemon hefe and half a pilsner. It’s an ok combination but I feel the pilsner half is watering down and taking away from what could have been a good hefeweizen. Interesting, not remarkable enough to remember.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light hazy yellow with a thick frothy head and active carbonation. The aroma is of esters with bananas and cloves. The taste starts sweet and has high notes of bananas and finishes with a slightly peppery spice. It could finish a little dryer. Not too bad overall

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light milky yellow-golden colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of yeast. Taste of fresh light yeast, grass, mild hops, blood oranges and clover. Very fizzy but also quite thin and watery. Refreshing but too unsolid. Boring and dull, too much yeast, too less hops.

Honestly said I did not taste that this one is a mix of Pilsner and Weizen as the Weizen is absolutely dominarting. Bit fruity, bit quaffy, easy going Weizen - bit above average.
