3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super cloudy golden and light brown on the pour. The head was short, white and fizzy. The aroma was lots of clove with yeast, malt and some hops. The flavor was clove, spices, yeast, citrus and wheat. The mouthfeel was almost medium in body. Enjoyable for what it is actually.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half liter on tap at Hofbrauhaus Newport. Pours a golden yellow-orange color with a thick haze and a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty and spicy with a lot of cloves and banana. Very heavy wheat and grain give the aroma a solid backbone. Flavor starts with a smooth wheat and a bit of citrus. Through the swallow it gains a nice spicy clove edge along with the hefe yeast banana. Finishes extremely smooth and refreshing. Medium body and active carbonation. Very good hefe and quite enjoyable on the palate.

Draft at Newport Hofbrauhaus. Pours a very hazy yellow with a full white head. The aroma is full of bananas, cloves, yeast. The flavor is spot on for a hefe. Banana, cloves, wheat, yeast. A very clean finish. Very good for a Hefeweizen, where freshness really does count

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Draft. I don’t understand the low ratings for this beer. This is as solid a Weizen as I have had. Cloudy hazy appearance with a wispy white head. Aroma of wheat and yeast with a little fruitiness. Flavors or banana, clove, and spiciness. Isn’t this what a German Wheat is all about? VERY SOLID INDEED!!!!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap at Hofbrauhaus in Newport. Yellow gold, almost like orange juice in color. Very yeasty in aroma, to the point I wondered if it had finished fermenting. Overall, an okay beer.
