3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served cold on tap at Universal Studios brewery. Opaque golden color with a small white head that left good lacing. The aroma was clove and bananas, and the taste was equally clove and banana. I was hoping for a bit more banana and a little less clove, but it was a pretty good hefeweizen.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden with sparse head. Light aroma somewhat of wet leather and old fruits. Odd taste - hard to place the flavors. Apricot / pear? Average. Nothing special.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

Smell: I got a lot of banana in the smell.
