3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb, WI. Appearance a cloudy light gold, thin white rim. Aroma of banana, bit of pineapple, straw wheat, really nice. Taste is definitely fruity, pear comes out a little bit more, ale yeast also adds the fruitiness. Pretty impressed with this one, like a standard Weiss but with more Belgian attributes.

For an American brewer brewing a Hefeweizen it isnít bad, but a bit watery.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy, deep yellow with a slight brown ting in color, head was low for the style. Aroma has a strong pear and banana combo with a mild wheat sourness to it. Aroma is a bit off putting to my nose. Flavor had a strong banana and pear pairing that just didnít work in my opinion. The yeast tastes stressed. The feel of the beer was good with a modest body from the yeast in suspension and a good carbonation rate. Overall not the best beer here. Flavor and nose just didnít do anything for me. The flavors and nose seem more reminiscent of stressed yeast.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Been loving hefes lately, so this was a must-have on my latest Grumpy Troll stop. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy white head. Tons of bubble gum on the nose, with light spics. Sweet and refreshing--teetering on too sweet, but it worked with the pizza I was having, so Iíll say it wasnít too sweet. Taste is the same bubble gum and sweet wheat, with a light mineral finish overlaid with some pear and light clove. Never tasted pear in a hefe before, but again, it worked. Well-carbonted, and just tasty as hell.

On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a cloudy straw-yellow with very little head. Aroma is a nice intense burst of clove, bubblegum, and banana. Flavor is bubblegum and banana with a very light citrus tart and some bready grains. Grassy hops show up after a while too. Thinnish, flat palate. Pretty good stuff.
