1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Now I love Hefe’s but I think I may have gotten this out of a dirty tap or something. Lackluster carbonation, no head, almost seemed like it was left out in the open, then put on draft. Chalk it up to a bad experience, I will try again when I come across it. If it is better I will most certainly re-rate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This isn’t spot on but it’s pretty good. It’s cloudy, muddy orange in color w/ a head of mixed bubbles. It has a clovey aromatic quality and some banana comes out when you taste it. It’s a little bit sweet, sticky and heavy w/ mild carbonation for the style. If they fixed the texture, this would be spot on but this comes off as a bit unfinished as it is--though it does have a pretty nice flavor profile.

.5 liter pour at Gordon Biersch Park Lane. Poured a hazy golden color with a thin white top and a little lacing. Amazing taste of banana, clove and the distinctive wheat character. Medium carbonation, medium body. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Seattle. Pours a cloudy yellow orange body with a fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy covering. The nose is pretty nice, clove, banana, a little banana bread, nice yeast esters. Just a light touch of bubble gum. The flavor is decent as well, plenty of esters of banana and bubble gum, enough yeastiness, not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a lingering finish. Decent Hefe, not a standout, but no flaws.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Milky orange pour with a white head. A bunch of banana and white pepper aromas. Some clove, coriander, and a bit of a smoked sausage thing going on as well. A lot of sweet bread dough. Flavor is slightly citrusy and tangy. A whole lot of bread and orange peel. Big time bubblegum and banana. A little grassy bitterness on the back end. Is a little better (spicer) as it warms up. Wanted to like this more.

On tap at Yard House Waikiki 201214. The first thing that I noticed about this beer was the aroma, sweet and full of ripe bananas. A little cloudy but that’s what you want in a Hefeweizen.

Pour from bottle. Good hefeweizen with a lot of spice. Love the aroma of this beer. I liked it better on tap, but it’s still a good beer. Could drink these all day.
