3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy with brassy yellow hue and half-inch off-white froth. Aroma is balanced toward clove with hint of banana and wheat. Refreshing flavor built on wheat tang along with malt backbone, plus clove spiciness and pear notes from yeast. Moderate carbonation (could be higher) and slight residual sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma has nice bubble gum and banana aroma, with a touch of clove bit very light aroma all around. Nice orange cloudy pour with very thin white head. Taste is sweet and full, banana, clove come through and finishes slightly bitter. The finish is abrupt and the body is a little light; lacking the creamy texture of a bavarian hefeweizen. All around good but can’t measure up to a real Bavarian Hefeweizen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brings big bubblegum, banana, some biscuit, bread, clove, hints of fruity esters, lots of white fruits, and pepper. Taste is a mix of pepper, white fruit, bread, bubblegum, sweet fruits, banana, clove, pepper, finishing sweet. Just ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy gold - almost no lace, despite an initially fizzy body - nose of clove, over-ripe apples, melon rind, mildly peppery phenols - carbonation is a bit fizzy and rough in the mouth - not the creamy texture you want from the style - flavor is yeasty and medium sweet - moderate clove, apple, a bit of spiciness - finish is kind of sweet, with very milx white pepper - has a lot of potential, but doesn’t come together as well as it could.
