3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Muddled, super cloudy pear-yellow body, not as dense or vibrant of a color as I’d expect or like. Foamy, bubbly white head fades quickly to a medium sized collar around the glass. Huge banana bread nose with underlying notes of salt water taffy, grass, & faint lemon zest. There’s a slight dish soap aroma in the back that is distracting... Otherwise it smells nice. Flavor is loaded with sweet banana candy, under-baked bread, dough, mild clove, & clumpy yeast. A hint of grassy lemon zest & milled grains in the finish, too. A little thin, but not bad.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Clear golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; very fruity, distinct bananas and some malt. Medium body & complexity. A little sweetness at first, but balances very well. Enjoyable

Bottle from the fridge. Aroma is banana ad malt. Appearance is pale yellow without the typical cloudiness of the genre. Head is high and white after a vigorous pour, with minimal lacing. Light body with medium sweet taste and some creamy banana finish. Unexceptional hefe that’s a bit too thin/watery for a repeat purchase.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a hefeweizen glass. The aroma is sweet with notes of primarily banana, with a light lemon and light clove as well. It a murky yellow brown hue with a soft, soapy white foam head that retains pretty well and leaves an abundant snowdrift lace. The taste is a mellow, medium sweet with a light spice bitter. The beer is creamy and light with a fluffy carbonation. Flavors of lemon and banana come through with a light, dry clove. There’s more clove character, along with a lactose creaminess, at the finish. The aftertaste is light and short.
