2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pretty nice beer to look at, a nice hazy orange small solid white head..that hangs around.
The aroma is ok..fresh and pleasant.
Taste is pleasant enough..in no way similar to a real hefe..but not bad.
This is my favourite beer from A-B

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
cloudy orange, thin head..wheaty, tangerine aroma with a touch of ocean breeze..pretty flavorless for the most part with a touch of mimosa..orange juice type spritzyness to it thats all about being refreshing and shit without being too offensive..god, this sampler is making me feel all mushy for the AB products and such but to tell you the honest truth, these aren't nearly as bad as i had hoped them to be..in fact...this is one of the more refreshing hefe's i have had lately..not shabby at all..

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty good beer considering its brewed by AB. Cloudy yellow with a nice head. Not much in the way of flavor. Flavor is slightly bitter and tangy with some citrus fruit and wheat. Palate is fairly thin. Nothing offensive here but a little bland. This would be a nice summer beer, so why do they always release it in the winter?

Very hazy beer. Tastes pretty much like a wheat beer, which is not good in my book.

I never thought I would ever rate a mic product this high, not the best anything I have had, but Considering who brewed it I have to give it some credit

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy yellow in color with an ample fizzy head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is bland, maybe some bannana. Flavor is slightly bitter. What about this is a hefe?

Really does look nice in the glass. Taste is just whay you might expect. This has nothing in common with a hefe. Not really drinkable. Sweet sugar water.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Murky, straw-colored lager. Tiny, creamy, white head.
Banana, wheat and straw in the nose.
Well-balanced flavor with notes of straw and butterscotch. Very thin, with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.
Not good. Not bad. At least A.B. is making an effort.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The appearance got my hopes up. Cloudy yellow pour with an impressive frothy white head. Week malt/wheat aroma though. Not much from the taste, kind of like a normal Michelob with a hint of malt and wheat. At least they're trying, but still a ways off.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Some lacing on what remains of the head. Almost a bitter sweet flavor although nothing is very noticable. A little light and watery on the palate.
