4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Date tasted: July 11, 2013... Glassware: Koenig Pilsener... Occasion: protein for tomorrow’s run--and a post-Bynam-signing toast....Appearance: thick, cloudy burnt orange body; equally thick, creamy head that exhibits nooks and crags like a sponge’s cross-section--worthy of patience... Aroma: beautiful aroma of orange,, banana, and some subtle spices that round the scent; quite pleasant... Palate: rather dry finish; prominent introduction, with a bit of crunch at the teeth... Taste: a surprisingly malty aftertaste; banana and clove with a comfortably clean consistency--refreshingly subtle... Overall: one of the upper-tier weisse beers I’ve tasted; a no-frills genre-setting stud; with lemon, my fourth of July wing beer; on a ratings night, a reminder I probably should have reviewed this summers ago....

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bready banana, honey, and lemon nose, not like banana bread, but more like good dinner rolls with banana accents. Hazy amber, thick head, good lacing. Traditional bready banana notes, but with a nice presence of honey that isn’t altogether common for the style. Medium body, light carbonation. Exemplary, consistent, accessible, and affordable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is strongly barley with hints of grain as it pours. It settles into yeast and a sweet note of caster sugar. Very slight banana and cloves emerges; all a little bland.
Taste is cream, banana, a hint of candy floss, slight cloves, banana milkshake, a little spice, cereal yeast.
Mouthfeel is quite full but there is a thinness in the finish.
It’s an alright beer, which has some strong notes, but it never seems to get out of third gear.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Best by 04.2014.
Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 01.31.14.
A: Orange. Opaque at top because of the yeast cloud. See through at bottom. 2 finger head.
S: Orange, clove.
T: Banana, orange, spicy clove.
M: Creamy smooth.
O: This is a Paulaner cousin. (Hacker-Pschorr and Paulaner are owned by Heineken). It has a bit more banana flavor than Paulaner’s hef, otherwise, it’s almost a clone. It’s a fantastic hef. The flavors are strong, which I prefer. Excellent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A fairly average and uninteresting Hefe. Decent notes of banana, wheat, spices and bubblegum. Light and refreshing. Not bad I guess.
