2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sampling thanks to texasjeep. Hazy yellow. Nose is super banana-like a banana warehouse. Taste is very banana and yeasty. Body is light and fluffy. No balance in this beer doomed it.

Thanks (or no thanks) to Texasjeep for this beer. Pours a nice haystack yellow with little head. Clove, banana and vanilla on the nose. Flavor is simliar, but with a metallic flavor as well. Eh.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Banana ester and wheaty aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of pale wheat malts and bubblegum. Finish is thin, with clove, yeast , and cheap malt flavors taking this a little downhill.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A cloudy yellow pour with small white head. It has a nice aroma of lemon, banana, and wheat. You can really taste the banana at the beginning of this medium sweet brew with a relatively clean finish.

Really good wheat brew. Lots of banana and clove on the nose. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Lots of malts and yeast on the palate. Really a different style hefe then ones I’ve had. I thought this one really had a lot of flavor to it. Solid brew. Worth a try for sure

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a sampler pack. Smells like a normal hef, looks like a normal hef (golden with small white head). But my god, the taste is bad, some spice and tartness but that gives way to wheat and blandness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour is turbid golden color with a very small white head. Aroma is light wheat, light sour, and some faint spice. Flavor is pretty standard. Spicy, light hay, and light wheat. There is a slightly acrid flavor in the finish that is a touch offputting. I have noticed this flavor is several of AB’s products recently. It would have been solid without it.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle from a mixed 12 pack. Aroma has plenty of spicy, coriander, and banana esters. Not too bad. Nothing wrong here. Moderately hazy yellow-golden body with a small, quickly dissipating white head. A wheat should definitely have a bigger, frothier head than this. A little spicy and herbal to start, which becomes a little citrussy in the middle. Then it becomes pretty thin and watery. Not too much else going on. Some slight esters, but this is lacking.
