3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at their first "brewery tour" which turned into just a huge gathering of people and not much of a tour. As for the beer: hazy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Lots of spicy clove with a bit of banana/bubblegum sweetness in the nose. Flavor was the same, but it was a bit too sweet for me - a sentiment I heard from a few others as well.. Finish was a bit chewy - definitely more full bodied than some other hefes. Nice beer and probably a good flagship.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a hazy orange body with a small fizzy white head that faded very quickly. The nose is nicely fruity with some banana and light clove notes over a yeasty wheat malt base. The taste is a little weaker than the aroma comes across. Thereís a bit more caramel maltiness and sweetness than I would like, the pale wheat doesnít come through enough. The yeast isnít really driving the flavor, and I think thatís what makes a good Hefe. Medium bodied with a slight yeast slurry consistency. This oneís a little heavy and bland for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of German yeast esters and wheat. Taste follows, definitely to style, a little thin though. Solid for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, cloudy golden brown with a thin head, yeasty and lightly banana nose. Initially soft and faintly milky on the palate, then turning a little crisper as a moderate hoppy bitterness cuts in. Sweet fruity undertones linger beneath the yeasty body with its hoppy edges. Recognisably a Hefe, but with a touch of pale ale about it, yet not so strongly flavoured as many of the Hopfenweisse.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy straw colored with a wealth of smooth white head. Aroma is lightly spiced with bananas and wheat. The yeast is also fairly discernible on the nose. Flavor is relatively smooth and light. The beer itself is not bad in any way but there feels like there is something lacking.
