3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, cloudy, carbonation observed, and a dark yellow hue. Nose was sweet, spicy, banana, citrus note and ditto for the flavor. Mouthfeel was smooth and a wee bit tingly. Medium body. Quaffable, balanced, decent for the style; however, there are much better to be had of this style. Still, worth a try IMO.

Draft at Terminal B, Frankfurt airport.
Sweet fruit with a citrus edge. Not much to make this stand out, fairly run of the mill hefe. Fine lemony finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy typically carbonated light orange brown colored body. The aroma was orange peel wheat and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of malt hops and wheat. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bronze, mildewy cloudy with filmy head. Not nearly as cloudy as one would expect for the style. Appearance btwn. a hefe and an IPA.Light wheat & esteriness in the aroma, slight prick of the nose. Mild spicy flavor with decent esters and prickliness. Good wheat flavor. Very understated and restrained German wheat, but well crafted and with a nice, pervading tartness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Hazy golden in color with a large white head. Aroma is weird for a german hefe- very wheaty with citrus and some metallic. Taste is a bit better than the aroma but definitely not what I was expecting- sweet citrus, vanilla, wheat. Almost tastes a bit like a carbonated creamsickle. strange stuff...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bohemian, Deal. Cloudy orange gold colour with lasting ivory head. Some cereal on aroma, but not a huge aroma, and then you taste it and the bananas come through. Some yeast. It’s spritzey in mouth, but no great depth. Bit of lager malt puke on aroma. Ultimately disappointing hefe weiss. Bit too pukey. Banana morphs into lemon on finish. Shame.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Bier Stube in Moline. Hazy yellow pour. Looks like your standard hefe-weizen. Wheaty, spicy, slightly estery aroma. Fruity and spicy flavor. Mouthfeel was a little bit thicker than most other wheats, but it doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to drink. I’m a big fan of German wheat beers and I would definitely drink this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Party Time Liquor. Dark hazy golden/orange upon pouring. Light yeast aroma, with a bit of an acidic harshness. Sweet fruity yeast up front. Rich creamy grain flavors. Tastes possibly skunked. Not bad, just an odd off flavor somewhere.
