2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow, with a fluffy white head. Aroma is banana, bit of spicy yeast. Taste is wheat at thfront, not quite as crisp and clean as it could be - spicy yeast and banana showing up at the very beginning as well. Banana isn’t dominant, but does taste a bit artificial. Finish is fairly clean, a bit spicy. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, medium to a bit heavier than medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

Lt amber, cloudy, with a white head. A light aroma of yeast and spice. The taste had some banana and vanilla with hints of citrus but was not very complex. I thought this was an OK wheat beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells zesty, faintly of citrus and very light hefe/wheat scent. Taste is mild yet refreshing and pleasant. Not an amazing hefe, but certainly refreshing on a hot day

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Spicy aroma with clove and nutmeg, as well as a light fruity sweetness. Body is a bit watery. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma, pretty dissapointing actually, with general fruit and spice notes. Not bad, but it could be much better.

Had on tap at the brewery. Picked up an aroma of grains and citrus. Had a nice head that disapated quickly. Had a nice malt texture. I found this much better made than the White Beer they offer. It was more complex and balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) This was fairly heavy and rich for a Hefeweizen, but overall, pretty good and indicative of the style. I liked it a fair amount. It was fresh and there was no objectionable sourness...so perhaps the other reviewers would benefit from getting a fresher batch. Not terribly complex, but still an above-average beer, especially among beers of this style to come from American brewers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
smells really weak and no estery aromas or clove smells....tastes kinda dry and gross finishes stale and gross and it was dated less than a month ago...don’t know if that was the experation date or production date....hopefully experation date....still it could use a lemon wedge though I should never think that for a german style hef...sorry brewandbbq...I thank you for this as an extra...but....it just did not hit the spot
though many other beers you sent were great!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12 fl. oz bottle with a date and lot code of 112607 686913. Pours a yellowish-orange with a good supply of off-white head that fizzles after a few minutes. The aroma is of wheat, yeast, some citrus, and overall very clean or untouched. A rather medium mouth feel. Mild flavor that is very easy to drin and finishes slightly dry. I enjoyed it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very pronounced banana aroma and flavor. All in all, though, quite light on flavor. Like a banana version of wonder bread.
