3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught in Newark. Fresh! Cloudy yellow-golden with a white head. Great wheat, lemon, and clove nose, classic Hefe. Wheat and light biscuit taste, dry and malty. Lemon is key. Medium-full body is crispy, aftertaste is very dry and biscuity. Really well-made, convincingly authentic Hefe – proud of this one!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Iron Hill North Wales. Pours a cloudy, yellowish-white color; headless. Decent, bananas and fruits in the aroma; no cloves to speak of; on the sweet side. Medium mouthfeel: lively citrus and carbonation at the tip of the tongue; chewy cloves and esters throughout; straightforward. Medium, dry and light clove finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at North Wales. Proper cloudy yellow appearance. Flavor is peppery with some banana fruit, turning over the middle into a more fruity, syrupy banana and corn and wheat flavor. Faint dusty yeast nose, with some faint but nice creamed bananas. Medium frothiness, nearly dry on the palate, and just a little bit tart in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, at IH Media. Poured cloudy orange with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of wheat, and clove. Flavor is banana, wheat and yeast, with faint spice. Very approachable and enjoyable, but it lacked the full, spicy notes of other hefe’s.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Newark-Poured a cloud yellow color w/a decent white head. Sweet, spiced aroma. Fresh, almost Belgian flavor of wheat, grass, cane sugar, yeast, & citrus. Very fresh flavor, quite enjoyable. This is what a Hefeweizen should be all about; a crisp, clean, fresh, cloudy, easy drinking summer beer. This one hit the mark.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was an interesting make of this style beer. I liked it but it was unlike any hefe I have ever had. Pours your standard hazy gold. Banana and clove were present like they are in most, but it just seemed to dominate the aroma, especially the clove. The flavor lightens up a little bit, but it was different. This wasn’t really a bad thing though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew treads the line between german wheat and belgian wheat, though closer to the former. Cloudy, wheaty color closer to a wit. Musky, clovy aroma with a scintilla of banana, though clove dominates the flavor. One of the more enjoyable german wheats I have had the pleasure to experience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad:
Hazy yellow, white head, large lacing. Nose is sulphuric, herbal esters, lightly metallic. The flavor is nutty, more carammely, but still a bit tart and fizzy. I like the maltiness but dislike the sharp bitterness and acidity.
