Much better than the wheat beer on tap that we sampled at the same time. THis one had vibrant fruit flavors, but also some nice yeasty sour notes and a very smooth finish. Bright and complex. I like this one a lot.

Pours a nice golden hazy color. Aroma is pleasant with citrus, banana, and some spice. Taste is similar with lots of tingling on the tongue. Maybe alittle thin. Overall, surprisingly good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Marina Pub. Pours a rich hazy glowing orange with a small white head. Lightly sweet nutty meaty yeasty light phenols, well balanced overall. Flavor is meaty and crisp, light citrus aftertaste, light balanced banana, more of a phenolic rubber taste though, flavors are light and balanced. Fizzy carbonation, light bodied, well attenuated, overall clean, dry.

A very nice true to style beer. Hazy, thick head, bright yellow, served with lemon at the brewery in Kona. Heavy banana and clove nose. Nice palate, sharp and sweet and sour alternating. More bananas too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub. Nice spicy nose, allspice & banana bread. Thick body, light carbonation, with a well balanced yeastiness and short, bristly finish. A nice, if very basic hefe. Still can’t hold a candle to the wonderfully spicy German examples, but among the better of the American interpretations I’ve had. Does not do much to showcase the wheat.
