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.
