Tap @ bittercreek: hazy blonde, light white head and nice lacing. Nose of fresh pale malt and wheat, light esters with more pronounced banana. Creamy wheaty flavor with a light hoppy finish. Clean and balanced hefe; do I taste decoction?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fr0m the b0ttle this p0ured a fairly clear yell0w/g0ld b0dy with l0ts 0f bubbles and a 3-fingered head. The ar0ma was very bready, d0ughy, and yeasty. It tasted lightly lem0ny with raw bread d0ugh and light fresh fruit. It finished dry and quietly tangy. 0kay as a quencher, but n0t interesting en0ugh t0 pursue further.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat, grain and bananas, about what I expect in the hefeweizen. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of wheat and banana notes with some clove mixed in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This tastes and smells like a hefeweizen should, but something about it doesn’t sit that well with me. Decent, but not one of the better Grand Teton beers I have had.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of banana, clove, bubblegum, and light citrus. It pours a hazy orangish-gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate banana, bubblegum, and a hint of lemon. The finish has very light wheaty tanginess and just a hint of clove. Light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall solid, but a tad on the sweet side and not enough citrus flavors.

A slightly fruity aroma. Very good appearance. This is pretty nice, even though I’m drinking it a little warm. Has quite a bit of wheat, some banana. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
dark yellow with an orange haze. Some sediment in the bottle. Everything else is light. Light flavor and light aroma, even if they are correct. Banana and cloves with some coriander. It needs more sweetness and more flavor.
