3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
REALLY was surprised at the quality of hefeweizen that came out of the bottle. Extremely well balanced. Believe it or not, probably one of the best hefeweizens I’ve had to date!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, picked up at Argonaut. Pour is hazy yellow with a small white that quickly dissipated. Clove, banana, light skunk, grass, biscuit, and straw in the aroma. Taste is citrusy, somewhat tangy, banana, clove, a touch of coriander, orange peel, and straw with a crisp. dry finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not sure when this was bottled, says W11.09.
Appearance: The body is slightly cloudy with lots of carbonation and fine particles in suspension. The white head is average sized for a hefeweizen though it’s lacking in retention. It settles into a thick coating.
Aroma: The aroma has slightly tart citrus with light banana and a touch of cloves. The aroma is nice, but restrained.
Taste: This is excellent, the taste is a nice blend of bright and slightly tart citrus with banana and a hint of spice. This is very refreshing.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation.
Overall: This is a very drinkable and refreshing hefe. I suspect this is an old bottle and I suspect it’s even better without the long journey it took to get here. The price is a bit steep but I would like to try other beers by this brewery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with sawdust like sediments; Very small head and white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Weak lacing and notable carbonation; Light smell of banana, clove, and light citrus; Sweet taste of light banana, cloves and malt. Light body and thin palate, with subdued sweetness and maltyness throughout and no tartness; Hop bitterness close to minimal; Dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: I am a bit disappointed with this one - a deflating look, thin and watery palate, hefeweisseque smell and taste are there but feel like something are missing. The effort is evident here, and a trick or two away from the Bavarian techniques and it’ll be a good one. Nice try, though.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a nice, hazy orange-golden body with a small off-white head. Slightly yeasty nose with some banana and lemon, sweetness and a little bit of cloves. Almost syrupy sweet in the mouth, with some fruity sourness, cloves and banana. Strange, but quite nice, even though it’s far from the regular hefeweizen. Effervescent. Lemony, acidic finish. For a hefeweizen, it’s both very sweet and very sour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Medium golden colour with just the slightest haze. Rather intense spicy and wheaty chracter (in a positive sense), with a rustic feel to it that harkens to some of the lovely heres we had in Bavaria. Surprisingly good!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to Jimmie. Pours out a nice golden color with a little head. Aroma is of bubble gum yeast, clove, light banana and some light floral/honey notes. Taste is much the same, more bubblegum, banana, clove, honey, light floral notes, little bit of bread crust. Solid and easy drinking.

750ml bottle shared by Jimmie. Poured a good looking clear gold average to smaller bright white head. Aroma of honey, wet wheat, flowers, crusty bread. Lighter body with tingly carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is simiar to the aroma, with notes of dry flower petals, honey topped wheat, slight sourness. Not bad.
