3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Flix Brewhouse. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma smells amazingly like root beer and vanilla cream soda. The flavor is quite a bit different. I get some heavy rye notes as well as some ash, toffee and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and a 12 oz. serving to a Czech-pils glass, showing a cloudy, brownish amber color, with creamy, light tan head foam, and frothy cling to the sheet-like lacing. The nose was banana, esters, bubblegum, malt, caramel sweetness, and a two-fold dose of spice from yeast & rye. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes, adding a moderate hop bitterness that was earthy, rind-like, somewhat peppery, and lingering into the finish, amped by some alcohol, and smoothed by a wheat generated creaminess. A somewhat entertaining conglomeration of German styles, with rye & wheat as key players. Liked the original cask version better.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Tart and dry, some dark malt flavors, rye is there. This is just a really bad German style wheat beer. Just not a great attempt at it.

Murky brown pour, off-white head. Nose is fruity esters, wheat, berries. Taste is what you’d expect from a raspberry wheat beer. Light crisp mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[Tap] Pours a dark amber color that is almost completely cloudy. Lasting creamy white head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is of weizen yeast, wheat, spicy clove and cinnamon accented with rye malts. Taste is heavy on banana and other fruity esters. Anise, vanilla and dark brown sugar make appearances as well. Wheat and rye malts are each quite prominent in this brew. Creamy mouthfeel and rich palate. A great beer!

Draft at Jerry’s. Murky brown with good, creamy tan head, light wet lacing / Somewhat medicinal (but interesting) nose of circus peanut, light smoke, dark fruit / Medium to full body, a hint watery, smooth & creamy, sweet but balanced / Flavors of banana towards circus peanut, cough syrup, chestnut, prune, date, raspberry, herb (root beer), cardboard, cream / A little head-scratching, but I think I’d try another.
