2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Semi-cloudy and stagnant gold in color with only one line of bubbles to signify life. Smells are very rural. Heaps of freshly harvested yeast, hay, barley for the horses and a hint at lemon briskness in the nose. Ugh. Tingly and heavy carbonation makes the palate jumpy. When fizz recedes, we’re left with an impaling lemony-yeast complex that insults Bavaria in a most grievous manner. Some spastic white pepper and imitation vanilla extract for spicing and sweetening. Blah.

Nice looking beer. Wheats are quickly becoming one o my tob brew styles, and this beer helps the cause.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 3 2 5 3 8 Very light straw color, looks watered down from a normal wheat. Light husky aroma. Oxidized flavor. Some dry apple skin along with dusty grain. Smells like a wet dog.
Re-rate 3/1/08: Banana and soft malts in the aroma. Light banana and spice over a husky wheat base - not the best hefe. Apparently Not as bad as the first time I tried it but certainly not in line with the rest of their beers.

Banana aroma and flavor, a bit sour as it goes on. Not much else. Oh wait, not enough characters. Shit. Guess that's enough now.

This had a cloudy yellow coloring to it, and an overpowering lemon scent. Don’t let them put a lemon in it, its citrusy enough as it is. Strong lemon taste, with a little orange mixed in. An average wheat beer.
