3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 Gold-orange and lightly hazy with a thick, tight white head. Aroma of black pepper, oranges, and crackers. Tangy citrus flavors and wheaty body. Actually it’s too much citrus tang and not enough depth of flavor. An average bottled hefe.

I had this beer on draught, it was cloudy with a slight white head that disappeared quickly. Has a fruity aroma and it tasted nice and refreshing. A great summer beer. Nice subtle notes of banana and clove. Not bitter at all, quite smooth with a mellow yeasty fruitiness. A nice balanced example of a weisse beer, though there are much better out there.

Hazy golden yellow with a fluffy head. Fruity outdoors aroma, apples, lemons. Began slightly sweet and breadlike, turning citrusy with a background sourness. Smooth tangy finish. I just love this style when it is right, full of flavor and easy to drink. Should have bought two.

Hazy golden yellow brown with medium sized short lasting head. Mild sourdough yeast and fruit with hint of sweet floral nectar honey and passion fruit. Smooth filling low carb body. Excellent mild citric sour balanced by fruity esters, flowery and honey flavours. Lightly acidic and spicy bready yeast finish.

Bottle. Nice example of a Hefe. Poured golden and hazy with a massive white head, just like the hefe's that I've had on draft in Germany. Fruity, spicy, wheaty nose with lots of citrus and yeast. Flavor is sweet and spicy with a pronounced lemon tang and smooth finish. Medium body with plenty of carbonation to give that refreshing summer taste. Enjoyable!

Bright and hazy gold colour. Aroma of clove and citric fruit. Big banana notes in the flavour, with a hint of bubblegum and lemon. The finish is a little short, but otherwise, it's a great brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle.
Strong malty wheat aroma. Pours dark yellow with some light orange tinges and somewhat cloudy.
This had a nice yeasty taste to it that remained true to the unfiltered nature. Some "unfiltered" beers make me really wonder how unfiltered they are. This had a crisp wheat taste and did not have that bubble gum/cloying taste. In fact it was not terribly sweet at all, but had a nice clean medium body with some lemon on the finish. I really appreciate this beer, as it is the least sweet of the hefes Ive tried but still maintains an excellent flavor, balancing the malt, yeast and wheat.

Hazy amber color with huge frothy, mostly lasting white head. Excellent lacing. Light bodied. Moderate malty aroma, hint of lemon, banana, and clove. Citrusy and light spice on the palate, finished lightly sweet and moderately acidic. Clean and dry.
