2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: For a German Hefe this one has one hell of a quick fizzy head. Otherwise, no lacing, lightly cloudy, looking like some dirty straw. Pale bready nose, smells more like an American example. Oh vay, a little tart wheatiness on the tongue, bready, but no real aspects of this being anything evenly remotely close to something German. No banana, clove, or yeasty aspects. Certainly wheaty tho. Nearing the thin side for a wheat beer, not filling or heavy at all. Finishes like a Birther finding out Obama is actually a United States citizen, unhappy and retarded.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head. The aroma is bananas, wheat, pepper and something that smells just a little bit off. The flavor is bananas, wheat, lemon and cloves. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent beer, but it tastes about like a watered-down hefewezien, which judging by the label that calls the beer a "light hefeweizen," may have been what the brewer was going for.

(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clearish yellow with lasting film of white bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum, and lactic acid. Taste of watery very ripe bananas, butter, lemon and spices with a watery earthy finish. Not very good.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a decent hefe. Not a lot of aroma, the flavor is mostly thin and indistinct. Nothing to get excited over.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is off with corn grains and Herbs. The appearance is hazy gold. The taste is a bit like wheat with some corn. The palate is smooth. Overall not the best of the style.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy pikapp327. The appearance of this beer is rather disgusting to be honest. It is cloudy/murky golden orange with a brownish mix in the color. There is a foamy white head that dissipates quickly, but the biggest component in the appearance are the large chunks of yeast floating in it. Unfiltered for sure.
The aroma is very yeasty which is expected due to the large chunks of sediment in the pour. Spicy yeast, grains and some lemony notes as well.
Flavor is spiced lemon and coriander, with a big grain flavor mixed with bread and yeast. There is a punchy type flavor in the finish that stays with the drinker for awhile. This is odd, and almost overdone with the spicy flavors.
