3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Dec 5th Beer Advent Calendar. Cloudy lemony yellow pour with a dense creamy white head that retains magnificently. Aroma is pleasantly spicy, with soft banana and dough. On the palate, phenols dance with esters, but phenols take the lead with cloves dominating the estery banana fruit, with light doughy wheat providing nice malt structure. A solid hefeweizen, presenting all the elements that make me happy-- I can only imagine how awesome this must be when it is consumed fresh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours a light hazy golden orange color with a small white head that settles down to leave a spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is banana and cloves with some yeasty notes. Taste is a citrusy hop bitterness with a banana sweetness and cloves with a yeasty dry finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. A nicely done hefe that is worthy of a good tasting experience.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty strong banana aroma on this one. Almost like banana smoothie. Warm wheat and a mellow clove support. Banana bread. Excellent smell. The taste is nice - soft, zippy and a middle bite that gives was to a banana finish. Banana, yeast and clove bite fades in and out. Lemon tang on the end. Simple yet awesome. Really dig this beer as its got so much lovable flavor. Hopefully it will keep me warm while I shovel the walks.

Advent calendar #5. Oops, falling behind. So the calendar doubled this brewery’s ratings, how about that. Holy banana on the aroma! A huge amount of phenols and esters, the flavour is drier than I’ve had for hefes, finish is... yep... dry banana. How hefes are meant to be.
