3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More (Ft. Myers, FL). The appearance is a white small hazy head with poor retention, visible carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a straw hue. The aroma was citrus, fruity, lime, and yeasty. The flavor was citrus, lime, wheaty, crisp, and malty. The mouthfeel was tingly and the body was light-medium. Easy to drink beer and was refreshing on a hot, muggy and humid Ft. Myers day.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bonus from Daknole (Thanks!) Hazy yellow pour with a bunch of banana aroma and a little carbonation. Flavor was bitter lime citrus and the general miscellaneous flavors of standard hefeweisen beers. Decent beer, but I’d need to be in the mood for it if I were to drink it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to my wife for sharing her bottle. Everything is pretty light with this one, but nothing is bad about it. The flavor and aroma are pretty typical of a macro wheat beer. However, the added key limes are just strong enough to make things interesting. This really isn’t half bad. I kinda like it.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 12 oz bottle from Daknole local trade. Hazy orange amber with a fluffy white head that completely disappeared. Smell is minty wheat and Belgian yeast. Cloves, ginger, and white grapes on the nose. Thick in the mouth and sweet. I could drink this ice cold on a hot day. Yeast finish. Not bad as far as wheats go. Thanks Dak.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gift brought back from Florida by a friend. Pours a pure white head. Golden body with lots of carbonation. Light yeast aroma which reminds me a lot of Barbasol shaving cream. It’s a little strange. Very thin body. Flavor is good, with a nice yeastiness to it and very little of the fruit I expected
considering the ingredients on the label. Aftertaste and palate finish off with dried orange peel flavors.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with daknole. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left just a bit of lace. Pleasant tropical aroma of banana, orange and lemon. The flavor is mostly dominated by wheat grain with some mild banana emerging towards the finish. The wheat flavor lingers on the palate well after the swallow. I could see myself drinking this on a hot summer day.
