Muddy dull tan. Light esters on the nose. Sweet and with some tartness and berries in the finish. Ok balance but the malts don’t really pop.

I am in Alaska. Fuck you! This stuff is ok. It has a mild spicy flavor, a bit sweet w/ a nice juicy texture. A bit flat, especially for the style. This is an inoffensive beer but so bland as to not really be a hefeweizen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super hazy orange glowing body with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt and lemons. Medium-bodied; Nice mellow yeast and wheat flavours with pungent coriander seed and curacao notes. Aftertaste shows a lot of nice sweet flavours, orange and other citrus fruits are really noticeable, but the yeast and wheat is by far the strongest. Overall, a good unfiltered hef - great to try, especially from a brewpub! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010.

Golden straw in color, hazy with a thin head. Decent fruit like wheat flavor and aroma. Light hops linger as the wheat malt was thick and smooth in flavor. Nice average fruit in my beer drink.

[Tap] Tried this at the brewpub in mid-September. Hazy and golden in color. Includes a large and pillowy white head. Nose is heavy on phenols, with clove and a light medicinal character. Mild esters, vanilla, banana, wheat malts and Band-Aid twang in the taste. Average body for an American-made version of the style. I didn’t really care for this one too much, but maybe I tried a bad keg of it. I am also a stickler with the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the pub. Cloudy yellow-amber with a creamy ring of bubbles. Spicy clean aroma of clove, citrusy yeast and a hint of banana. The flavors are the same but softened by some wheat and a bit more of the banana flavor against the sharper citrus and clove. Light-medium body is soft and finishes crisp and refreshing. Very good example of the style.

On tap: Boston’s Pizza, Fairbanks. Poured a very nice deep yellow orange with a thick white head. Not a whole lot of aroma just slight yeast notes and some banana. Flavor is mild banana and yeast. The finish is what kills me. Quite dry.
