2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nose of wheat and banana. Hazy apricot color with a frothy white head. Medium bodied. Starts with citrus, a bit of wheat and yeast. Not finding hop, and the banana seems to have disappeared for the most part. Moderate carbonation. There are many better hefes, but as a strictly drinkable ale, this is not bad at all. After a long wait some bitter may try to surface through the citrus. Not sure about that.

Has a slight hint of the ’cheap beer’ stale-vomit aroma (hints of a light Keystone ICE aroma, the most god-awful beer smell known to man), appearance is a cloudy (good) brown (almost like poop water, not so good), palate-wise it has a nice refreshing neutral flavor. Not a terrible beer and certainly a step above the other big boys BUT I used to buy this stuff because it was a lot cheaper than the microbrews but now it is almost a buck a bottle and many micros can be had for only slightly more.

The Classic Dark was so good I had hopes for this. Cloudy yellow without much head. Nose was citurs. Mouthfeel a little thin. Flavors were malty with a touch of hops. Finish a litlte light. Not bad, but nothing unusual going on here.

Cloudy light orange, disappearing head. Lemon citrus, sweetness, and earthy aromas. Bland tangy, sour flavor with a watery finish. Do the Full Sail brewers like this?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a pale, cloudy, peach color with a finger of head that falls to a thin cap. The nose was of wheat with a hint of lemon meat. The flavor started with wheat and ended with a wheaty huskiness. The finish was slightly creany. The feel was medium. They call this a Hef, but it’s really a weak attemp at an American Wheat. Lack of character and hop profile makes it’s drinkability suffer. Overall, a forgettable beer.

Not the best wheat beer I have had. A little bit of a bitter taste that left you with a bad finish. Poured great, with nice fluffy head.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a soft white head. Not much wheat in the nose, lightly grainy malt, faint hops. Flavor has a mild honey malt flavor, then fading to a bitter and watery finish. Kinda cheap beer taste in the finish, very thin tasting. Not as bad as most other Weinhards brews, but can’t hold up to the other american wheats in this area.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the bar in the Embassy Suites Williams Center, Tucson AZ. Very hazy orange amber, small tan head, died fast. Aroma of bread and a vague hint of something perhaps floral? Mild flavor, mostly bready, with a bit of sourness and just a tiny, teeny hint of bitterness at the end. Overall, cool and refreshing, good to relax with at the end of the day, not a bad thing to find at a family resort’s bar, which was otherwise stocked with the ususal swill.
