3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from irishboy: pours a cloudy yellow hay colour witha big thick white head. aroma is a nice light wheat with all the qualities of a good hefe clove, banana and touches of the bubblegum. very nice. flavour is a bit sticky an d light in the characteristics form the aroma the clove seems to get lost in a sweet whaeaty malt and the bubblegum does not come thru at all just hints. the beer does finish a little better with some creaminess on the palate. ok hefe but the flavours seem to meld together to much and dont shine seperatley.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A big thanks goes out to riversideAK for this not so local rare brew I received in trade! Big 22 oz bomber. Pour is hazy orange apricot in appearance with some rolling carbonation within. Very nice hefe aroma with a tad of sweetness. First taste is overwehlming weird bubblegum flavor which borders on the impact of malt liquor. The taste of this makes it seem it is a much higher abv than the 4% listed here. Some gunk on the bottom leaves a hypnotizing swirl within the brew. Fuzzy head thru-out the session in my steeler stein. Creamy bubblegum and banana flavors continue. Perhaps a little too much at times, because it feels nearly artificial, but can’t be. Dizzying effect near the end of the bottle. Finish is somewhat strong and medicianl in the banana and bubble gum characteristics. Tinge of lemon rind in the background. No hop bitterness but an interesting linger. This has got to be the most obtuse hefe I ever have tasted. I really like hefe and this certainly exhibits, in the fore front all those trifles. Perhaps a little over the top. Alex, I owe you one for this! Thanks!

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 Huge sweet banana and clove aroma. Super cloudy yellowish color. The banana flavor looms supreme in this beer. Super fruity and creamy with a light refreshing lemon like finish. Lots of stuff left in this one... This is some good shit.
