3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The only description I can come up with for the aroma is that it’s like the aroma of walking through a damp, but sunny redwood forest. In other words, I can’t place what I smell, but it’s earthy and welcoming. The flavor is like that, too. It’s sunny and pleasant, with an earthy background and just a hint -- a tiny one -- of honey. It’s a nice beer, and one that I would enjoy having on hand.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid weiss with the wheat sweetness and hint of banana. The clove is what makes this beer taste a little unusual.

Not bad, but a bit too strange for me. I don’t know what it is, but this just isn’t my thing. Not bad by any means, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Moderately carbonated and tang colored--or more specifically, the color of a horizonal sun rise on a hot day. Peppery, pungent hop abundance in smell and taste. Tingles the mouth with a prickling woodiness. After adjusting to this mouthfeel, the underpinning banana taste is detectable. This beer has a sweet/sour citric finishing note that is rather pleasant. A commendable try at a the german wheat style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was o.k., I guess. Nothing to get excited about or nothing very distinguishable. Mild clove taste, usual weiss banana on the finish. I thought I detected nutmeg somewhere in there. Rather sweet. Not bad, but I don’t plan on grabbing another anytime soon.

Couldy yellow appearance; Thinish head; Banana in the nose. Thin palate with fake banana flavors. Very cloying. Too sweet.
