3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. The normal cloudy yellow unfiltered look. Aroma was very nice, strong banana and wheat. The flavor was great with the perfect balance of the sweet and spicyness. This is my favorite wheat beer that I have tried so far at a local brewhouse.

On tap. Not too cloudy and very thin. Mouthfeel was disappointing and the flavor was largely sweet banannas. Some vanilla in the finish. Drinkable, but boring

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Islands. Cloudy, nice yellow color.
Served with a lemon slice, wheat was dominated by citrus, but nontheless it was very easy and a great session beer. Nice rich feel, I was suprised at how easy this went down, and down and down...

Served on draft. Very nice cloudy appearance. Good head retention. Very pleasant wheat/fruit aroma. Very satisfying mouth feel, couldn’t order just one. Not like your typical Hefe.
