3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overly active pour from a 12 oz. bottle to a Czech-pils type fest glass. After a number of careful pours, waited quite awhile for a good aroma read. Displayed a clear, golden color, with billowy, lasting head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light tartness, citrus, mild spice, a hint of banana, light grain, and sweet biscuit/wafer notes. Light bodied, with lively effervescence, the flavor was tart & dry, lemony citrus, not very noticeable banana, but a good deal of clovey hints, especially as it warmed, and low hop bitterness. More of a summer Wit with some Hefe characteristics. Nevertheless, a refreshing, summer sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled March 21, 2013.
Appearance: The body is lightly hazy with a golden to amber hue, the head is tall and fluffy, slowly settling into a dense white coating.
Aroma: The aroma is a complex medley of tart lemon, grass, unripened banana, and hints of cloves and an earthy presence.
Taste: Clean straw and light lemon tartness greet the tongue first and sticking through to the finish, hints of unripened banana and a mild clove presence are noticeable towards the end of the mid-taste along with hints of orange. Clean and drinkable, but mild.
Palate: Light and crisp bodied, lots of carbonation.
Overall: This isn’t an astonishing hefeweizen, it’s a bit too clean and mild for my liking, but it’s 4.2% and it’s very refreshing. Certainly a good beer, but it won’t stand up to the likes of Sierra Nevada’s Kellerweis.

Bottle. Pour was hazy, nice aroma of yeast, malts, bread, banana and clove. Flavor matches the aroma, some sweet citrus and very refreshing. Not my favorite style but I liked this.

Nice summer session brew. Slightly sweet, a little spice, and smells citrusy. I will buy a few of these again.

Yeasty fruit aroma. Bubblegum and hops. Pale golden with a cream white head. Crisp fruit at first then it evens out to a slight bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light yellow with heavy carbonation to create some white head. Aroma is citrus with lemon and orange, as well as wheat and grass. A very nice summer beer. Light taste with lemon, wheat, yeast, some malt, and orange. Has some hops that give it a round flavor, but not bitter.

Hazy light copper - nose is fairly sweet (honey), with some notes of clove, banana and overripe apples, as well as some bready wheat and yeast - carbonation is full, but fairly soft in the mouth - a little thin up front, but fills out decently in the long term - light acidity up front, followed by moderate sweetness, flavors of melon rind, clove - slight spicy/peppery notes arrive late - bready, lightly tangy finsh - not bad.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I must say i drank this out of a heavily frosty glass on very hot day, so it might benefit from that. Cloudy pale yellow in the glass. Smells of dough and wheat. It is light but full of yeasty wheat. Leaves a yeasty palate but in a very nice way.
