2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very cloudy, unfiltered golden with a lesser white head. Aroma is of lemon, banana, and a bit of spice. Taste feels kind of flat. Heavier in banana, less in lemon, with hints of pepper and spice. Body is lighter, with a somewhat oily texture. Sticky lemony aftertaste. Not very refreshing based on how light this is. Overall, this seems to be lacking a lot in just about all areas.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Banana, lemon, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Mostly clear golden yellow color with small head and moderate effervescence. Sweet ripe banana, clove and light wheat malt flavor. Pretty good - would have liked it better if it were a bit maltier.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Yeasty wheat, citrus, bubblegum, clove. Hazy golden with a minimal white ring. Wheat malt, bubblegum, orange, clove flavor. Light carbonated body. I’m by no means an expert, but this struck me as a weird hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to pokal: Hazy golden pear with a wispy white head that fades out to a nice ring. The nose is very yeasty, crisp, sweet banana bread. Fresh smelling. I wish this bottle was fresher, but I can still get a good sense of what it once was - banana, clove, a little bubble gum. Easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks, James McBrewer! Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a nice cloudy light amber color with full white foam, some lace. Very aromatic yeast, banana, apricot, some clove and black pepper, some mild malty aromas underneath. Flavor was very mild and balanced, not too sweet, not too bitter, notes of bread and caramel, biscuits with honey, lots more apricot. Light body, chalky/yeasty mouthfeel, very refreshing dry finish. A nice true-to-style Hefeweizen with some added fruitiness. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pale wheat, curacao and other orange and citrus fruits, coriander seed and a hint of bubble gum - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive wheatie and yeastie flavour at first with a herbal sweetness soon afterwards and some light spices noticeable. Aftertaste is mostly dry, showing some wheat, a little curacao and a hint of the alcohol. Overall, a nice very mild german wheat with some sweetness, but mostly a dry lingering flavour with some light spices too. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 06-December-2011 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 14-March-2012 when Detroit Lost to Anaheim in hockey and it first hit 80degrees Farenheit in Washington - in early MARCH.
