2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This has a bit of a spicy yeastiness, with a crisp clean mouthfeel, somewhat sour, with some lemony acidity. Very typical.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery
Very cloudy and deep yellow in color with a big, billowy tall ice-cream head. Flavor is a little bland, stale, soapy... some sour lemon, but not tart. Paper-like, I guess, like chewing on notebook paper. Milky, yeasty nose. Simple.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Awesome appearance of nectar/cloudy banana liquer and creamed top with fine lacing cling to the glass. However, aside from the appearance, the brew was insipid. Little detectable aroma with a clean, bland flavor that might have held some banana in addition to the wheat and a soupcon of sourness. Macro drinkers might find this flavorful, but to me, it was boring. This is closer to an Am wheat than a German one.

Light fruity nose. Faintly fruit malt palate with decent body for the style. I also had it at the Archer
