3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Cloudy ochre gold with a fat white head. Popping out of the mug, even. Slightly heavier bodied than I can remeber from any other hefeweizen. Mild flavor with a bit of tanginess and even a bit of acidity. Very fruity. Not too bad, even though I dislike the style in general. I could have another round.

Typical hefe nose, but a little too light - also smells a little like a clogged drain. Cloudy orange color and a low tight head. Some spiciness in the middle and a grassy finish. Thinish and a watery finish. Not the best hefe, but decent.

Bottle. A hazy golden color with rising bubbles and a foamy white head. The aroma has citrus, coriander, wheat, and candy. Lively in the mouth with a touch of vanilla with the wheat malts.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 A standard German wheat. A great banana/spice aroma in a hazy gold beer with a large white head. Delicious wheat flavors and mouthfeel. One of the better wheats you can buy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium gold color, slightly hazy. Enormous head. Aroma is yeast and malt, with a touch of rye. A medium bodied weisse. Malts are pronounced for a German Wheat. Some of the banana and clove flavor thing going on, but there is some fruitiness and there is a very definite rye spiciness as well. Very smooth. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is very slightly sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent German Wheat - fits the profile well. Frothy white head with a good amount of lacing. Orange, unfiltered, cloudy appearance. Sweet banana undertones with a hint of spiciness - possibly cloves - that presnts itself halfway through which is a tad bit distracting. Strong to the finish. Overall, impressive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice cloudly orange color. The aroma was a bit citrusy, but that may have been from the orange slice that was placed on the rim of the glass. The taste was ok, but there was a hint of something that I couldnt make out. I guess I just need more pracitce with tasting beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy golden color with a long foamy/bubbly, off-white head with great lacing. The aroma is extremely wheaty and spicy. The flavors have hints of spice, especially clove. Very consistent, the beer taste virtually the same from beginning to end almost 30 minutes later. I second 49degrees comments as I bought the Canadian version as well called Hefe Weisse at 5.5%ABV.
