3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber pours with a clear gold body that supports a tall 2 minute long tan head. The aroma offers up sugary malt sweetness, some clove like spiciness and then modest notes of banana and apple. The taste is similar with sugary sweet malts and then it gets into banana, apples and some spicy clove like notes. Decent enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow, ring of film. Aroma reminds me of a dunkel, wheat isn’t very evident. Muted munich character, hint of smoke. Flavor is sweet through and through. Again not much of a wheat character, light spicy hops in finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a hazy cross between orange and gold with a while head and good lacing rings. The nose is citrus with some banana. Medium body and lively mouthfeel. Flavor is wheat and citrus. Finish is dry and spicy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy brown with a touch of gold. Nose has some bruised banana and toasted wheat cracker. On the palate the bruised banana comes through as well but the focus is more on the wheaty flavors. Finishes malty sweet. Comes across unlike a true to style hefe-weizen.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great take on a wheat beer - takes the traditional wheat flavor and adds a champagne-y crispness. Fairly light, and not a strong carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hi Time. Not a fan. This doesn’t taste like a weizen bock as much as just a big wheat ale. Nose is thick yeast, flour, crust. Flavor was that tangy hefe weissen flavor plus dead malts. Slightly vegetal. Smooth but not very tasty.

Bottle: Turbo charged Weizen! All you would expect from a Weizen but exponential. Food Pairing: Extra sharp cheese.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Mild citrusy hops aroma and light wheaty. Sweet wheat malty flavoured. Mild citrusy note. Medium dry and light estery flavoured finish. Rather plain brew, I guess it does well at the brewpub for those interested in smooth hefeweizen brews.

Hazy yellow with a white head.
Sourish aroma with spicy notes.
Pretty sweet, malty and vinous flavour. Marzipan.
