Flavor is definitely there, but the appearance is lacking. A good weizen should have a thick, fluffy head. This does not. Aroma and taste are spot on, taste(banana and bubblegum)is a little sweeter than the German native varieties A good effort, but a little ways to go.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a nice off white head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a slightly cloudy amber. Aroma was traditional Bavarian weisse but like a little overdone - sort of artificial. Flavor is like nose. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of short to medium in length.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden body. Small, white head. Light aroma of clove, bubble gum, grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. A slight tartness finishes things off. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of clove and bleach in the aftertaste. Homebrew kit-like.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy goldenrod. A pretty vigorous pour yields only a smallish fizzy white head which soon dissipates. Not very weissebier-esque. After a few minutes it appears completely still, with no ring of foam or lacing; pretty unattractive overall. Aroma is big on bananas, with lesser accents of vanilla and bread. Mostly one-dimensional though. Flavor is tasty if a little on the sweet side. Vanilla and banana up front with a crackery malt note and a touch of roast (?!) if I concentrate hard enough. Not really sure what’s going on here, it seems like maybe they used American ingredients with a German yeast strain or something. It’s a minor quibble but something doesn’t mesh quite right. The body is flabby and the carbonation is lacking, hurting the drinkability.
