3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad hefe flavors. Very tart and syrupy feeling. The sweetness is there and stickiness that I like in the hefes but its a little bit forced and doesnt blend as nicely. Tough to find a good american made hefe, and this one is better than most but still just ok at best.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a strong note of banana, light notes of pepper and clove.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Meh. Ok aroma, but very banana-heavy and a tad husky. Very syrupy sweet in the mouth without much to balance. Not a good example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden with a tiny white head. Big hit of banana runts and clove on the nose with a hint of isovaleric in the background. Flavor is light, nice banana and clove, a little yeasty. Has a bit of a metallic finish, but not overpowering. Quite nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
lightly cloudy golden wheat body with a small white head. your typical banana and clove bouquet with a lot of fruity esters and a moderate dose of dish soap and sulfur. medium-light body, mildly chewy, medium sweetness, low bitterness, medium-low acid, light huskiness. yeasty and muddled with little vibrancy or yeast expression. a very forgettable weizen with nothing to bring me back. a sad miss from these otherwise talented brewers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample pour of golden yellow with a light fluffed head. Nose is mostly bananas with mild spice notes and slight grassiness. Flavor is mostly bananas again with mild cloves and other spices. Not a bad hefe, especially since it’s light on the cloves and I’m not a huge clove guy.

I thought this was a nicely balanced Hefe. There wasn’t too much bannana, bread or clove taste, just a pretty standard beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with almost no head. A fair amount of citrus in the nose with some slight floral notes. Taste has the same citrus in there, but isn’t quite as light as you’d think.
