3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from World Beer Market via Rakuten served in my Weizen glass. It is a light gold with a bright white head of soapy foam. The nose is sweet & fruity grape with just the smallest hints of cloves. Light bodied, the taste is chewey spicy wheat, fruits and a bit of cloves. As it warms up it gets a strong vegetal(celery) & peppery character. OK.

Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Moderate floral nose, wheat, light banana. Very pale, little head (for a wheat beer). Thin wheaty initial, just a little spice and some small citurs. Thin body. Okay. A bit watery. Doesn’t really have the body or the yeast bite of a hefeweizen.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is an exceptional hefe. If you’ve ever had a Paulaner or Hacker Pschoor then you will like this. Mild cinnamon, banana and clove aroma - not overwhelming but sufficient. Pours good with a fluffy head. Tastes just like the aroma, very good. Goes down very smooth with mild citrus aftertaste. Very good hefe.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, bottled on April 24, 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head. Aroma is tart wheaty citrus, medium/light body, lower carbonation, and some big bubble lacing. Taste is tart wheaty citrus (mostly grapefruit), wheat and crisp hops. Different, but one I would go back to.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy golden amber color with hyndreds of tiny rising bubbles, huge rocky white head, light splashes of lace. Taste is slightly sour malt and spices that move without incident to a little bittering in the finish. Seems like some banana and yeast try to step in late in the palate, but there are none of the other flavors the brewer describes. Maybe it’s not fresh...

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a plastic sampler glass. Strong aromas of the traditional banana and clove, with some honey, bread, and a touch of lemon cleanser. It pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow which retains only a thin white ring of head with a clear surface. It’s head is dense and leaves an abundant micro-bubble lace. The taste is a nice blend of medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The texture is waxy with a light, pillow like carbonation and a medium body. Lemon, and spice finish it off. It’s dry, clean, with a light clove aftertaste.
