2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Orange golden color with decent head which settles quickly. Aroma is typical of the style with some banana. Flavor is wheaty, some banana but too watery. No palate. I did however manage to drink quite a lot of these during the evening. Not the worst beer to get drunk on..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lots of fruity esters in the aroma, abundant banana, some lemon, and some yeast. Hazy deep golden color, firm snow white head. The lemon comes through in the flavor a bit more than I would have liked. Refreshing, yet creamy body. Pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow. Quite cloudy. With it’s mix of caramel and vanilla scents it smells like root-beer. This is a beer I would have with some grilled meat. Very mellow but good. Not very complex.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught pint at Redbones in the company of ClarkVV, his delightful girlfriend, and my moody brother. Opaque orange-gold, lasting light head, bit of lace....hugely sweet banana-vanilla-caramel nose, cinnnamon and ginger over the more common clove spicing....body fairly sugary, lightly yeast, caramelized bananas luscious in a vanilla creme bath....very full through to the end, slight metallic character and wateriness keep this from greatness but its far above average.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a very solid hefe. Light golden in color, slightly hazy, with a massive bright-white head. Young banana aroma with cloves and vanilla bean. Flavor was a tad lighter than I would have liked, but the mellow yeastiness and slight citris (mandarin oranges) was still very tasty. I’d have this again.

Bottle. Clouded gold with a tall foamy white head. Nose is wheat, light citrus, bubblegum, spices, and some sugary notes. Light yeast as well. Taste is a sweeter German hefeweizen. Wheat, sweet malts, bubblegummy notes, light yeast and mild citrus. Body is light and refreshing. Mildy carbonated feel to it. Finish is lighter wheat and yeast, some lemon pie, light bubblegum and spice. Delicious hefeweizen!
