Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Lake Placid, New York. Cloudy, light yellow pour with a light nose of orange and spice, sweetness of banana bread and spiciness of lemon, with a nice, tart finish. Great job!

On tap at the Brewery. Light lemony aroma with some yeast character. The flavor is also slightly lemony and fresh. Very easy to drink and refreshing on such a hot and sunny day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6 ounce draught sample at the Vermont Brewer’s Fest (July 2007). Opaque bright gold with just a bit of head....assertive, dry, spicy aroma with light clove and banana but mostly lots of fresh bready wheat tartness....the body is quite full and thickly malty, even heavy at first but at the same time the wheaty sourness refreshes, the banana-bread character is fulfilling and the lightly tart-berry notes at the finish are lovely....I don’t know what I got out of this that everybody else didn’t, but this was really a pleasant surprise for me. Well done!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Vermont Brewers Fest ’07. Pale yellow/cloudy beer. Soapy aroma up front. Light spice and a bit of peach but no banana character. Heavily carbonated with very faint light clove. A bit of wheatiness. Thin/gassy beer with more soapy flavour on the back. Meh. A definite low point on the days tastings.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Cloudy yellow with a long-lasting big creamy white head. The nose is barn/leather, banana & pils hops. Nice round body with a fruity (banana and more) and sweet taste. Yeast character is a bit cheesy. Tasting sample at Burlington beer fest 2006. Average hefe, more like a hill top than a high peak.

07.13.05 Tap at brewpub. Murky, clouded orange-gold. Ample froth. Light banana, heavier clove, little citrus. Reminds of Weihenstephan but even fuller bodied. Very nice on a 90 degree day in a town with no AC.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of banana esters and bubble-gum, very classic of a hefe. The body is medium with a creamy texture. This is a good, classic hefeweizen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Very cloudy and amber. Aroma is clearly the distinctive clove/banana of a hefe. Aroma also was of mild yeast and citrus. Plenty of wheat flavor and a sour/yeasty bite. Finish is short and slightly sour. OK hefe, but not great. Worth doing again.
