2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The white foam and hazy pale yellow color is typical of a Hefeweizen. Lots of banana and clove along with grainy wheat malt make up the aroma. Flavor is tart, sweet, and dry. My wife didn’t like it at all. I thought it was ok. Finish was light but didn’t clean up well.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a decent banana and clove. Flavor is is wow super tart and sour. Finish is again sour. This had to be infected at some point but other rates seem to have gotten the same thing. Started out good but went down hill fast.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is spices and an off aroma, possibly old or oxidated. The flavor is citrus, lemon, bananas and a mildly tartness/sourness that lasts into the finish. Thin and not incredibly interesting but not nasty.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Cloudy lemony yellow, lively white head that collapses rapidly to a thin ring. Aroma is very sour, a little earthy too. Really weird for a supposed weizen. Palate is sour and yeasty, no room for anything else. Finish is coarse and acidic. Not a fan of this one.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a murky orange/golden with no head after an aggressive pour. Aroma has a slight sour aspect with hints of orange banana and spice. Taste also has an odd sour funk presence, which is almost nice but certainly out of place among the poor flavors of clove and banana. I have no idea what is going on with this one. The American Lager would be a better Hefe.
