3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at the Mellow Mushroom in Chattanooga, TN. A large sized off-white creamy and smooth head that contained fine-large sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was carbonated and transparent with a yellow-gold hue. The nose was that of banana, cloves and spices. The flavor was sweet, spicy and fruity with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with fair lacing. This was a very drinkable and enjoyable German Hefeweizen and one that I would recommend.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 4. This bottled brew was enjoyed at the Mellow Mushroom in Chattanooga Tennessee. It poured a large head of fine to medium sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a poor lace. A second subsequent pour yeilded a slightly hazy body. The aroma was floral, malty and contained some fruit apricot notes. THe mouthfeel was tingly melolow and nicely balanced. The flavor was malty softly fruity and somewhat doughy.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with an incredible long lasting, thick head with an abundance of tiny protein enriched bubbles. The taste really blends with the aroma of a good German Hefeweizen.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was sort of bland, and overly hopped for a Hefe-Weiss... unless by Premium they meant Hoppy. I wasn't really impressed iwth it.

WOW! Pours a cloudy blond with a tall, firm white head. Nose is spice, banana, wheat, yeast and some clove. The taste expands on these aromas and is perfectly rounded. Not overdone or underdeveloped. Smooth lightly spiced finish. Great hefeweizen!

If you could use this of an example to others on what a hefe is suppossed to taste like then this would be my choice. The aroma and flavors just explode from the bottle. Lots of fruits, your typical banana variety. Clove is prevelant also as expected. I like it because it is not over the top and the flavors are right up front for you.

Huge banana esters, massively yeasty with hints of clove and bubblegum. This is fine textbook hefeland with nothing missing. Big bodied and refreshing. Vanilla reveals itself in the long thick aftertaste. There are some better hefes out there, but this is just a perfect example of the style.

A great one. This is in the top class of beers I ever had. Vanilia in the flavor smooth and semi sweet. This one also has very strong wheat charteristics. It is slightly thicker than some other but is refreshijng and easy to drink. Looks and smells great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A classic standard German Hefeweizen. Quite yeasty, filtered and sour. A bit spicey end.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not one of my favorite Weissbiers although much better on draught than bottled. Typical appearance of the style, cloudy golden body with foamy rocky head. Head dissaptes rapidly on this one. Aroma is steady spiciness with clove and yeast out front. One of the most effervescent of wheatbiers, really high carbonation and super crisp. Flavor is wheaty and yeasty with subtle spiciness. Not bad but so many are better. The Dunkel is far better.
