2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on tap at Marin. Leaves a lot to be desired. Buttery smell, fizzy palate, and somewhat empty, tinny taste. It's a smooth finish I suppose, but missing the rich hefe taste that I hoped for.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep pale slightly hazy gold body that supports a thin white head. The mild aroma has faint dry wheat notes, faint banana and little else. The taste is pretty nice and smooth but it starts with a short jab of lemon tartness rolling into malt sweetness, some wheat and then malt graininess. This works pretty well.

Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours cloudy blonde with lots of floaties and a thick white head. There is a citrusy wheat aroma, a watery slightly sour wheat flavor and a bitter yeasty finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy golden with enormous head that overflows with the slightest of vigor in pouring. Nose is very lemony. Lot of dry wheat cracker on the palate and not so much banana. Lemon takes over. Thin, watery body & some unwelcome sour fruitiness. Disappointing .

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bland aroma with some wheat, green apples, vanilla and an underlying sweetness. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a low white head that reduces to a slight partial cover. Flavour is quite light and drinkable with some wheat underlying the sweetness. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A bit sticky as it warms. If it was called Marin Brewing Wheat Beer I may be more forgiving but if you call it a Hefe Weisse I have certain expectations that just aren’t met by this beer. No banana character no yeast character whatsoever really. Seems like it was fermented with a very neutral ale yeast. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Nov-09.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Translucent, hazy straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Spicy aroma, oranges, clove. Flavor is the same, heavy on the yeast and spice. Dry, chalky finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Marin Brewing Co. I love the part of the description that reads, "the yeast is rich in vitamin B." Gotta love a beer that’s good for you. This one though...eh...not so much. Very light wheat aroma. Flavor of wheat and pale malt, a little citrus. Light on the palate.
