3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 A touch hazy dark golden color with a diminishing head that left a layer of tiny bubbles forming on the surface like some Belgian ales. Very fruity aroma that reminded me more than anything of apples on the ground in an orchard, with plum and banana notes. Tangy on the tongue, with a toffee sweetness and a yeasty sourness, lemony and acidic with a dryish not much on it finish. I think this one had a little age on it but it was still hanging in there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Copper color. Large white head. Heavily carbonated with lots of bubbles, and the yeast is clearly visible in large pieces. Darker than many hefeweizens. Mild aroma of flowers and some wheat. Great flavor. Banana, clove, some citrus, and very sweet malt. A quality wheat.

I did not find anything unique about this German Wheat. It poured a white head with fine-small bubbles. The body was cloudy and the color reminded me of cider. It had an aroma of clove to it and there was no lacing on the sides of my glass at all. There was carbonation observed with this brew. Nothing really stood this particular German Wheat apart from others that I have rated.

This brew pours a large head of fine to large off-white bubbles that leave very little lacing. It has a carbonated cloudy light brown body. I smell a little citrous in the aroma. The tase is citrousy too with notes of banana, spice and clove. I'll eave it at that.

Intense banana and spice aroma. Extremely hazy brown, pours a large tight head, a few floaties. Some banana, hint of cloves, but I'd like more. Pleasant mouth feel, dry finish. A good example, but the aroma and appearance promised more.

Copper in color with a subtle clovey aroma. Bits of apple flavor, both cooked and spiced. Okay, but not particularly pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 Re-rateNice clove aroma. Brown cloudy amber, good head. Some bananaflavors, also wheat and hony present. Surprisingly thin body and not that much aftertaste - a bit wheat and banana. Not quite full enough for a winterbeer in my humble opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice ur-weiss. Not quite what I would expect from a winter. Lacking in the yeast complexity. Good light clove and banana. Sweet wheat and malt present. Thinner in mouthfeel as expected for the style. Just so close.

I’m sorry, but I’m feeling lazy at the moment. For now, though, I will say that I found this to be a rather typical German Wheat. Not unique in any way that I could notice, but sure not a bad beer. Just needs something to set it apart.

Cloudy light brown color, like apple cider, with a huge soapy head. Aroma of cloves, lemon, and only a very slight banana. Flavor is sweet and tangy with a mild spicy dry finish. Lingering alcohol presence in the throat. Surprisingly light carbonation, and full flavor. Not the best, but a nice dunkel weizen.
