3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, as Hue Hefeweizen. Pours cloudy yellow amber with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is lemon, wheat, clove and banana. Perhaps a bit too much clove and not enough banana Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, no bitterness at all. Medium bodied and creamy. Not a bad effort.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 (on tap) Opaque dark amber. Nice aroma; mainly bananas. Soft pleasant mouthfeel from plentiful gentle carbonation. Flavour starts with citrus notes and develops through a richer banana phase and finishes with some spicy bitterness. Overall a great hefe.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy yellow with a nice white froth. No lacing. Aroma is bubblegum, banana oil, and light cloves. Flavor is just about identical. Too much bubblegum for me, tastes kinda like artificially flavored banana candy. Medium-thin body, nice effervescence.

On tap at the brew pub. Easily the best offering they had last night. Yeasty, with notes of coriander,cloves, banana and bubble gum. One of the best Hefe’s I’ve had at a brew pub, as well as one of the better ones from the West Coast.
