2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours tiny hazy golden with a frothy and fizzy goldenish white head that quickly dissipates while leaving almost no trace at all on the glass. Smell is typical heft with wheat crackers, lemon juice, cloves, banana bread, coriander, oatmeal cookies, lemon zest and dusty dry cereal. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour and tiny bitter with wheat crackers, banana bread, lemon juice, lemon zest, hay, cilantro, cloves, lemon balm, cereal, lemon zest and parsley. Mouthfeel is soft, sparkling, tiny tart, tiny cloying and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly sour with wheat crackers, lemon juice, cookie dough, banana bread, lemon zest and hints of green herbs and hay. Starts good but each sip after the first turns more cloying and after a while it’s enough. Hoppin’ Frog is a great brewery but this is a style I don’t think they quite master yet...

The flavor is is about what I expected. I get some nice banana and clove notes, as well as some wheat. In addition to all of that, I get some orange notes and a little bit of toasted malt. Nice to see a hefeweizen with a little more complexity than the standard offerings.

A dark yellow beer with a big and blond head. The nose is strongly fruitfull, mandarin, wheat, marshmellows and sweetness. Taste is strongly fruitfull, lots of mandarin, wheat and sourness, some marshmellows, lots of citrusfruity bitterness, that dries the end. Medium bodied, high carbonation, refreshning. Not very typical hefe, but US style, but this is still quite nice. Mandarin and citrusfruits are dominating.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, from Country Fresh. Mildly hazy orange color. Bubbly fizzing white head that soon fades to nothing. No lace. Medium body. Stronger carbonation. Nice light orange-citrus aroma. More spice flavor than typical for a wheat beer. Much less banana than typical for a hefeweizen. Tangy sweet taste. OK wheat beer, but kind of disappointing. Not as easy to drink as I expected it to be.
