2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Golden orange with a decent head.
Smell: I got subtle citrus in the smell.
Taste: My first taste was quite sharp. I didn’t really get as much lemon or orange as I would have thought from the aroma.
Mouthfeel: Too much bite. A smoother hef where the flavors find balance is more to my liking. Perhaps not an ideal bottle of Thunderweizen?
Drinkability: Okay, I guess. Not a favorite.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice local version of a German Hefeweizen. Pours rich, cloudy gold with a nice white head, no lacing. Aroma of banana, clove, citrus, and wheat. Delicious, rich taste, medium sweet and light sour. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and sweet/sour finish. A real winner, would repeat. I didn’t know they made such good beer in Poway.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a modest white head for a hefe. Wheaty bread aroma with lemon, peach, more vanilla than banana, cloves. Lovely creamy texture. Bready, sweet and fruity with a distinct tanginess and (maybe slightly over-) prominent cloves. Not all that much banana, which is very much to my taste. Rustic and refreshing.
