3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden lively body. The head is a fomay white pillow. The aroma is wheat with hints of esthers. The flavor contains much more esthery banana then the aroma, in fact this is the dominant flavor with wheat playing second fiddle with some other floral flavors in the backup band. The body is nice and very drinkable. Better than I had expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bubbly golden color with a thining but constant head. Aroma is a decent malt to it, but nothing substantial. Flavor is sweet but with a back of spice to it. The palate is a bit sticky but semi thin.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is slighlty sweet, slightly sour, light and crisp, fruity, wtih apples, apricot notable, hints of honey. Cloudy light orange color with minimal thin white head. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity (oranges), a bit of yeastyness, slightly dry. Palate is a little watery. An interesting brew, the aroma is definitely the high point.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden hazy beer with very little aroma. There is none of the spices or bananas expected in a Weizen. Rather acidic mouthfeel and not much body.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber color with a tip of head and light lacing. The aroma is metallic and lightly tart with some starchy sour wheat and the obligitory banana/clove once it warms up. Artificially sweet with a poor balance with some tart wheat, tastes infected, very earthy and tangy. This was interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large white head that lasts, minimal laceing. Hazy gold color. Sour lambic like nose, hints of citrus. Light body, lively carbonation. Light malt flavors, citrus notes, moderatly sour and acidic. Finish is dry, tart. More of a wit flavor than weizen IMHO.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to CB and TAR for sending me this brew in out recent trade, Great Trade!
Foggy orangey copper body with a nice foamy ivory head. The nose has Strong notes of coriander, plums, banana and wheat. The flavor is pulling large notes of apple, clove and coriander, very refreshing and light. A lemony orange citrus flavor backs up the wheat….. nice silky and crisp palate…. I would certainly drink this again!
This Weizen would be a delightful accompaniment to a dish of sweet and sour chicken.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a hazy orangish color with a light off-white head and high carbonation. Smell is of clove/ginger/citrus. Taste is also of the clove/ginger/citrus and finishes pretty dry. Overall an interesting wheat, but not one for me to drink regularly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange color, very hazy. Tiny white head. Aroma is yeasty, citrous and banana. Flavor is not as yeasty but somewhat yeasty. I taste clove and apple. Palate is sharp with a bitter finish. I have to say that this beer is generally authentic. There is a smokiness that I don't really care for but overall very good.
