Cloudy yellow pour, nice white head with decent lacing. Aroma is slightly banana with some wheat. Nice, slightly creamy beginning with a good wheat flavor. Good bite from the carbonation at the end. A very refreshing beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from Bruisin’. Looks like a hefeweizen with it’s distinct cloudiness. The color seems a little darker than many in the style. The aroma has token banana and clove notes though not much real wheat. It’s something more like soured grains. Though the flavor hits the general idea with the yeast, this is just off. The finish is reminiscent of damp rags and a cheap beer, like Miller High Life or Pabst-type flavor permeates.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet.
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Thin collar throughout. The nose brings some bread and then the typical hefeweizen triumvirate of banana, clove, and bubble gum. Light astringency, actually. The flavor is a bit off in a manner that’s difficult to describe, though the right components are all there. Light body with average carbonation. Not bad, though not something I would seek out again.

Bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Cloudy yellow color. Odd aroma of cleaning fluid. Taste is similar. I couldn’t tell that this was a hefeweizen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium yellow- orange with an average sized white creamy head that lasted quite a while and produced excellent lacing. The aroma was robust with yeast and had a mild strawlike malt scent with notes of banana, clove and some citrus. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of banana and some spice at first then became very yeasty with a nice citrus note at the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and very creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall this is a good hefeweizen, very refreshing and quite pleasing to the palate.

At SAVOR. Poured a golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma was heavy on the wheat notes, spices (clove), banana notes. Flavor was wheat, spice, and banana. A bit dry for my tastes, but enjoyable none-the-less.
