2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy yellow with a dimishing head but good lace. Banana, spice, cirus, yeasty aroma. The taste was very disappointing, watery and thin, mostly citrus with no signs of other hefeweizen characteristics. Pass in this one and get yourself a good German wheat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a very cloudy beige yellow. Some bubble gum esters, little bit of citrus. Beer begins very plasticy with tons of bubble gum flavor. I am not tasting much wheat. Has a watery citrus mix towards the finish that is not very pleasant. The lemon they put in it did not help things. Hardly, if any, hops detectable. Beer seems artificially flavored. Problems with carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a small head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is a little wheaty with a tiny citrus hint. The flavor is a little malty, but mostly it tastes like a slightly watered down weiss beer. Not bad at all, but it is a little too watery for me.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very hazy blonde with a 1 cm bubbly white head which dissipates into larger bubbles. Aroma is of citrus, but there is a mild touch of the typical banana scent of a Hefeweizen. Start is lots of carbonation--too much, follwed by a banana flavor and then it bitters out in to a pretty unpleasant finish. Between the carbonation and the bitterness, this beer needs a lot of work.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a good Hefeweisen, cloudy, light yellow, no head. Hate to say it but it really reminds me of Sam Adams Summer Ale. It has a slight yeastly aroma and a slight lemon flavor, but thats it! Low flavor, this beer is going to be popular with the masses, but not with me. For me it needs some spice, clove or pepper, some more yeasty malt flavor. A waste of money.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Herbal and floral in both aroma and flavor. Soft bodied with some mild wheat/yeast tangyness. A certain amount of bubblegum, followed by a mild hop that provides a dry finish. For some reason, I really don't like the name.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma is sweet, wheat and a little citrus. Has less of a wheat flavor than most wheat beers which is a plus in my opionion. Dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taste more like a watered down belgian than a wheat. Could also be described as an esterfied miller high life. The flavor is just "off the target" and the palate is a bit gummy. The color is a bit dirtier than it should be and it sure is clear for an unfiltered offering. Inspite, of all its short comings, it really isn't TOO bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Brewery: Standard appearance for a Weizen, straw yellow and cloudy with a white foamy head. Has a sweet wheat malt aroma yet lacked the bready yeasty aroma I've grown accustomed to in this style. Body is medium with a slight crispness. Flavor is weak though and not a true weizen flavor. Lacked character and depth.
