3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the brewery in Poway. Pours a cloudy, golden orange body with a finger-width, dense, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is big on the banana bread and wheat with lots of yeast and spices. Flavor is similar. Starts with lots of wheat and banana bread before moving into a fruitcake middle and finishing with a bit of a spicy citrus. Fruity and malty aftertaste after a dry, yeasty finish. Light bodied, crisp, and refreshing. Overall, a solid beer all-around. Tasty.

On tap. Awesome Hefe. Nice cloudy golden color. Lots of aroma of banana and spices. Very reminiscent of Traditional German Hefe’s. Went great with my pot roast. This is my local brewery, so I fully support them. Viva la Poway.

On draft at Main Tap. Not a bad brew for an American Hefe. Some clove on the aromas. Flavor was more wheat twang than anything else, but it was not horrible.

On tap @ O’Brien’s San Diego. Nose was very sweet and yeasty. Clove spice, banana, and citrus were present. Flavor was much like the nose, very sweet and yeasty. Not my cup of tea but, I can appreciate a good quality brew when I taste one.....nice.
