Draft @ Brew Kettle: Hazy dark straw color w/ a lasting white head. Banana esters & clove very apparent; light wheat malt, and a little sourness in the aroma, also a light bubble gum. Well balanced, lightly tart. Wheat malt flavor w/ clove & bubble gum, finish is clove flavored & dry. Highly carbonated w/ a lighter body, a little tart acidity. Very light & refreshing, nice Wheat! Great summer beer!

Golden with a slight haze and small head for a weizen.
Sharp spicy aroma. The flavor is sweet ending with a tangy fruit finish. Smooth on the tongue with a little bite from the wheat.

Pale moderately clouded yellowy orange appearance, moderate head, lively carbonation. Well spiced clove, banana and pear aroma. Spritzy, citrussy palate, canned pear flavor, banana and clove, dry grainy finish. Slightly thin on the palate but a good refreshing garden beer.

Very passable American Hefe. Aroma of cloves and bananas, Hazy, bright golden apearance, with a tight white head. Spritzy mouthfeel, very full bodied. Flavor has some bubblegum notes along with cloves and bananas. Very refreshing on a 90+ degree day in Florida. Goes down extremely smooth and easy.

Salida, CO Beer Fest-tap-pours a nice cloudy yellow hue with sudsy white head that lasted a long time. Orange, banana, and spicy hop notes in the aroma. Right on for the style. Flavors show lots of orange with a touch of banana ester. cardboardy finish, but didnít detract from the flavors actually. Pretty good weiss.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer poured a slightly cloudy mild yellow color with a tiny sheathing white head which dribbled away quickly. The aroma is as to be expected...heavily grainy, with wheat and grapefruity citrusesness dominating. Some hints of yeastiness, but really not much other than a quasi-sweet grapefruit. The flavor has hints of banana, grapefruit and doughy sweetness. The finish is dry and pretty heavily carbonated. Overall this would make a pretty good summer session beer, but other than that, it lacked many of the defining fresh yeasty qualities i look for in a weiss beer. Donít get me wrong, the yeast strains were good, but they werenít great. Not bad, could have been better.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Andyís. Cloudy disgusting gold color, with absolutely no head retention, giving the beer a totally flat appearance. Sourish yeasty aroma, almost lambic-like. Flavor is sourish and yeasty, with a little malt to back it up. Is something wrong with this? I wonder. Very poorly made brew.

Hazy yellow,head disappeared somewhat quickly. Aroma was that of sweet citrus and mild yeast. Prettty thirst quenching sweet,citrus with a hint of spice. Iíve had this several times and never really noticed any banana.
Very decent summer beer tho a bit $$.

Pours a deep gold with a quick fizzy head. Green apples and cloves in the aroma. Pretty poor flavor that is not rounded out.
