3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub
This was a fairly average weizen that leans more towards the fruity end of the spectrum. Almost lunch in a glass it strikes a nice balance that would make it a good fallback depending what else was on tap and the current mood.
Aroma / Appearance - Cloudy golden liquid sits inside the sampler glass with a light fringe of crisp white head. Wheat and lemon sit on a foundation of warm banana bread made with wheat.
Flavor / Palate - Wheat and honey open gently. A few seconds later comes a splash of nuttiness and mild flavor that carries all the way to a pleasing malty finale. There might be better weizens out there but this is above average. If you are having a hard time filling your flight then start here.

Wheaty flavor, slight notes of lemon ... Otherwise nothing extraordinary, fairly drinkable, but a dime a dozen

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the Market Garden restaurant. Pours that great hazy straw color so typical of a hefeweizen. Banana, cloves, and some spiciness in the nose; matched in the taste, with a little more emphasis on the banana. Goes down pretty smoothly. Nothing really out of the ordinary on this one, solid but not outstanding.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium thin and fluffy white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana and wheat. Light body with a sweet fruity character and notes of spice and wheat. The finish is sweetly spiced with a short banana aftertaste. Decent overall.
