4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Matsuma (I think that’s the name of it) in San Diego. Didn’t really want to spend the 5 bucks on this 12 oz (or less) bottle, but now I’m glad I did. 1st of all, the bottle is beautiful. My wife wants to keep this one. Then the beer. Seriously thick haze in an orange-amber pour. Nose is lotsa yeasty citrus goodness. Cloves and white wine. Taste is lovely. Citrus/lemon and tart yeastiness. White wine and allspice. Ginger and apples. Really nice.

Served from a 350 mL bottle from the Exchange. The appearance is a slightly hazy pale white grape hue. The aromas are light with yeast and wheat. The flavors are similar with some light clove hints. With a bit of a cold I may be missing a bit here but an ok hefeweizen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10.1oz bottle in a shaker. Pours hazy golden with a foamy but quickly fading white head. Aroma of a roasted malts and the light citrus notes from the wheat. Flavor of the citrus and light malts with a toasted/smoky flavor at the end. Average texture. A unique beer, but not the bets of its class.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber hue with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good wheat and banana aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Average well balanced sweet wheat flavor with a good sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Good soft drinkable beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(500ml blue bottle) Nose is like an over citrus pale lager. Slight oxidation. Kind of like a bad home brew with a smooth lactic, wet wheat, grainy finish. Watery and bland. Past its BBD?

Cool blue bottle is definitely an attention getter on this beer. Had this at a Sushi rest in DC. The sweetness of the wheat really brought out tremendous malt flavors. Very fresh sample.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can leftover from RBSG courtesy of KyotoLefty, which I took to a tasting at Andy’s with Joe and Zach...only missing one of the NY crew who was at RBSG. Pours a milky yellow with a thin white head. Sweet, light banana, and some lightly vegetal notes. Sweet and lightly musky. Not sure how this would have been a couple of months ago, but either the age, or something else was affecting this beer. Rather odd.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blue bottle. Milky yellow, low head. Spicy aroma quite a bit of clove. Perfumed sweet. Lost some carbonation when we opened it. A bit unclean, over bb date?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found this in a blue bottle at Roger Wilco in Sicklerville NJ and no one knew anything about it. The said it came with the store which opened in 2008. The bottle had a 2008 date also so I was a little worried but no fears, this was quite tasty. Poured a cloudy light orange with a small head. The aroma was hweat and malt, along with some cloves, bananas. The flavor was similar with a nice peppery feel to it. Very dry finish. Tasty stuff.
