2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Huge foamy head and a light straw body. Nose smells like artificial banana flavoring. Mild taste. Banana, yeast, and wheat dominate. Very watery. The Coors light of Hefeweizens. Blah.

Golden and cloudy color with a large white head when poured from the bottle. Not the best of the hefeweizen I’ve had but it holds it s own.

If only this beer tasted as good as it looks. Not that it’s bad, it’s just a little too acidic. Nice typical Hefe flavors that can, unfortunatley, keep you drinking all night long.

0.5 l bottle. Cloudy and orangish yellow, with a nice white head. Banana clove aroma, and a touch yeasty. Flavor is the typical malty banana clove with plenty of carbonation. average weizen, and not a bad choice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy and dark yellow with a big billowy white head. The smell is very yeasty and clovey. Very sweet flavor with the typical wheat beer flavor profile: clove, yeast and wheat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yeasty, lots of clove, a bit peppery, some banana. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: a bit thin and clovey for me.

This golden wheat has a nice tangy flavor. There was some straw/hay on the tongue as well. Finishes long, with medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a mixture of carrots, oranges, cloves, and bananas. Apperance is a murky orange with a massive head. The body is a little thin on this one. Flavor is quite citrusy with a hint of wheat. Overall this one isnt as complex as other hefes, but considering I dont really like the style that’s ok by me. A good summer beer here.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden body with a nice, fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Banana, malt, and fruit flavors dominate the body of this beer while a nice, slightly tangy finish completes the picture. This is not a strongly flavored beer but it does have some very nice characteristics and subtleties. In other words, it ain’t complex but it sure tastes good to me. Overall, as wheat beers go, this one is pretty damned good!
