3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Many ’summer weiss’ beers are lacking in aroma and taste and are more lemonade than beer. This is just as refreshing but bolder on the senses. Yeast and wheat, little bit of sweetness. Really nice palate sensations and subtlety lingering aftertaste. great beer

Looks like a glass of clover honey with a massive, but short lived, cream colored head. Sweet, dusty, fresh bread, yeast, honey, coriander. Nice sweet with a bit of spice and tanginess. Nice feel, quite refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy yellow gold with lots of effervesence and a huge white head. Nose is of yeast and wheat. The palate is greeted with a smooth texture, a taste of citrus and spices with a yeast and wheat bread flavor. On the finish, the hops add a light note. Lots of flavor in this beer yet fairly light an satisfying. Pairs well with cheese and crackers.

Pour is orange/dark gold with a huge frothy head.
aroma is nice light yeasty banana and fruit. some caramel and spice as well.
Nice banana and clove flavour, though not as pronounced as a lot of german hefs, it is still very identifiable. hint of banana foster/malt sweetness through the middle. Finish is light with a hint of yeast and clove. A pleasant surprise!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super hazy golden coloured body with a dense, very very fast-dying white head with not much movement. Aroma of pale malt, wheat,light coriander seed, corn and a bit of yeast. Light-bodied; Assertive wheatie flavour with a coriander seed freshness, a bit of wheat and yeast notes and some corn tucked in the mixture with a light sugar flavour. Aftertaste light and relatively mild with a bit of yeast noticeable, some light sugars, a touch of alcohol and a very pleasant, smooth wheat finish. Overall, a nice wheat with a good summer lightness and a good flavour profile that isn’t weak at all. A nice beer that everyone should try if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$1.35 sampled at home in Washington on 23-September-2012.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonus courtesy of GhostFace. The 12oz bottle pours fairly opaque pale yet deep gold with copper core and thin bright white head. The aroma has some nice coriander and clove like spiciness with a bit of bubble gum and pepper. The taste is enhanced by a decent level of carbonation pushing up some mild black pepper notes, cloves, a bit of bubble gum and then grainy like malts. It smooths out into the finish leaving bubble gum and a sliver of clove lingering into the after taste. Nice summer brew.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Rubbish! As soon as I pulled the bottle from the case and saw it was filtered crystal clear I didn't get my hopes up for this one. I expected a nice cloudy haze, but I decided to give it an honest evaluation. Some brews turn out to surprise me. This was not one of them... The pour was weak with a skinny, little head, and no retention. It fizzled away quickly, and left no lace. Just clear beer. Off yellowish color, scant nose of banana and spice, maybe a bit of barn funk. First couple sips were acceptable with flavor of standard banana, clove, spices, hint of lemon. Palate was thin and full of tiny bubbles. As I continued to drink the flavor went south. An odd "off", skunky sour flavor began to build. By the time I got to the last 2 or 3 inches in the bottle I was trying to force it down. I decided I was done with it and dumped it. Perhaps I got one that was off. I'll try it again, but I believe it's just stale and weak from the start. Not one I'll want to try again.
