Bottle: Light ’cheap’ hefeweizen. This this even a style? Watery, plain, simple. Waste of malt.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle pours a cloudy golden color with a white head of very fine bubbles and a little lacing. Aroma is full of wheat bread, lemon and cloves, with a little banana. Body is light with lively carbonation. Taste is more sour than bitter, which ruins this one for me.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Hazy flat light orange pour with a head that quickly diminishes to zero. Mild tart/sour aroma. Thin palate. Taste is flat, peach, wheat - almost no spice. This misses the mark.

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.
