Bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a cloudy light orange color. Frothy head disappears quickly. There is a Hefeweizen hidden in here, but somehow the funk and the boozy flavors dominate. Very muddled.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is spicy, with light banana notes (I was expecting much more), some spiciness, light hoppiness, and bubblegum. Taste, at first, seemed to me like that of a Belgian ale. Only after a few sips did I really get the sense of what the brewers were going for in the beer. In any case, it wasn’t bad.

Tap atbthe Jeffrey for BC night, unfortunately I was there early so only few available. Pours like lemon me rang pie. Nose is banana and bubblegum. Tastes of rich banana, bubblegum, more lemon pie, and cloves. Creamy texture. Pretty interesting brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Nose is mostly banana with some spices (Cloves or Coriander). Extremely sweet mouthfeel but it’s still does a good job balancing the sweetness with the alcool and the small hop finish . Very nice sweet beer

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a huge fan of this, but I’m glad I tried it. The beer looked great with its dark hazy straw colour, with a frothy head that was quickly gone. Aroma was of grapes, citrus, wheat, grass, and coriander. The taste wasn’t very pleasant, which included grapes, bubblegum, citrus, and musty old booziness. I also found the body a little off putting with a sweet syrup taste and low carbonation, that left some tingle on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have never really had this style (I don’t think, these categories are getting quite hipsterish and foggy) but for a first foray into such territory it was pretty okay. Hazy copper with a lasting white head. All of the usual scent-suspects were present; wheat, yeast, coriander,orange and honey. The taste is where the Imperial kicked things up a notch. A light fruitcake taste accompanied by bubblegum and basement. The warmth of the booze does come through on this but the alcohol is mostly quite subdued. T’is a wee bit syrupy and low carbo so not your typical warm day fare.

Golden color with fluffy white head. Banana and clove notes. Taste is the same with a hint of wheat and grain. Slight booze as it warms. Nice body, medium, definitely more weizen bock than hefeweizen.
