Hoppy aroma, with a bit of wheat. Cloudy golden, small white head, lots of floaties. Sour, yeast taste, thin. Doesn't meet the style. Thanks Radek.

Golden coloured with orange tints. A lemoney, citrus aroma with plentiful wheat. Medium-bodied; Sweet-tart orange flavour with strong coriander seed freshness. Aftertaste clean and crisp-fairly decent! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003.

A big bold head, with a sour aroma that turned me off slightly. Flavor is wheaty and malty, lightly unbalanced but not too bad. Finish is crisp and sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 Great cloudy orange appearance. The head was very big but also very thin and was gone quickly. Aromas of malt and sour citrus. Also some herbal character. Sweet, with a lingering sweet aftertaste. Crisp on the palate.

A very good take on a German-style hefe. A fine aroma of banana and cloves, and a subtle citrus note. The flavor is light and crisp, and finishes with more of the citrus. A very good beer.

Not bad, though it really lacks much of the complexity that makes German wheat beer so good. Fairly fizzy with large head. Some banana notes and a little citrus. Not enough yeast in this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11 oz bottle, hefe glass. Large frothy head is white and slowly diminishing. Body is a deep hazy orange with dense, tiny particles and several very large particles. Almost looks like orange juice. Toasted grain malt, earthy yeast, banana esters, clove aromas are all present. There's another stong spicey aroma that I cant' quite place. Mayber coriander or ginger. Fairly complex aroma for a hefeweizen. Flavor starts with a warm sweetness with light acidity and end with a lightly acidic sour apple taste. Lingering flavor. Medium-full body is well rounded and creamy. Soft carbonation finishes it all off. The bottom line is: this is an interesting take on hefeweizens and should be tried at least once.

Ornage, cloudy colored; head faded quickly; nose was skunky wheat. Sweet, very effervescent. Some good fruit loop flavors, but it definitely suffered from travel.
